Erupting With Beauty

The Azores is home to many natural wonders like Lagoa das Sete Cidades. The twin lake is in a volcanic caldera — don't worry, the volcano is dormant — creating a unique shape and even more captivating view. Drive down the 9-1 and across the bridge for stunning panoramic views of the lush surroundings and green blue water.

A pod of Atlantic striped dolphins

Spot Sea Life

Put your exploration skills to the test and spend the day on the water. The Azores is home to around 20 different species of dolphins and whales, making it the perfect place to spot a breach. Go into it with an open mind — when viewing animals in the wild, every trip is different.

Portas de Cidade and the Saint Sebastian church clock tower in Ponta Delgada, Azores

Postcard Perfect in Ponta

Step inside a postcard by posing for a selfie with Portas de Cidade. Built in the 18th century, the triple-arched black and white gateway is what comes to mind when people think of Ponta Delgada — it's even on the city's coat of arms. After you snap your photo, explore the rest of the city center from here by foot.

Mixed Portuguse tapas on wood table

Local Cuisine

In Ponte Delgada, you'll find plenty of pestiscos, or Portuguese tapas. They're a great way to dine on some delicious fresh foods without breaking the bank. Don't leave without trying the grilled octopus and fried mackerel — mouthwatering staples in the Azores. If you're up for a new experience, try lapas, a delicious local sea snail, typically served grilled with butter, garlic and red pepper sauce.

An assortment of ceramic souvenirs in Portugal

Shopping

Head to Galerias Portas do Mar for your pick of handmade crafts. Choose from clay dishes, vases, embroidery and lace products. Pick up some locally grown tea from Sao Miguel's Gorreana Tea Factory, or pop into the smaller shops around the city to purchase some delicious wine to sip at home.

INSIDER TIP

If you're buying ceramic products, make sure they have the Arts and Crafts Seal of Guarantee so you know that they are authentic and locally made.

Kiss the Blarney Stone

Don't leave the region without getting up close and personal with the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle, located eight kilometers northwest of Cork. Legend has it, if you literally bend over backwards to kiss the stone, you'll gain the gift of eloquence.

The gaol in Cork's old city

Go to Gaol

Going to prison is usually a bad thing, but Cork City Gaol (the Celtic spelling for "jail") is the exception. The castle-like building once housed 19th century prisoners. It closed in 1923 to become a broadcasting station and reopened as a museum in 1993. Today, you can tour the cells and see the artifacts of early radio broadcasting.

A building at Fort Mitchel on Spike Island in Ireland

Fortify Yourself

Take the short, scenic ferry ride from Cobh to Spike Island — named the top European tourist attraction at the 2017 World Travel Awards — and explore Fort Mitchel. Over 200 years old, the star-shaped fortress previously held 2,300 prisoners. For brave souls, the island even offers After Dark tours.

A serving of traditional stew with a pint of beer on the side

Local Cuisine

Visit the local artisans selling their fresh produce at English Market in Cork, where trading has been happening since 1788. You'll find artisan cheese and bread, locally raised meats, fresh produce and seafood. Then, head to a traditional restaurant on Oliver Plunkett street for a classic dinner of fish and chips or lamb stew with potatoes and vegetables.

Various souvenir Irish magnets

Shopping

St. Patrick's Street in the city center is Cork's main shopping district to see with your Ireland cruise. You'll find modern pop-ups like Wild Design, which offers ethically made handicrafts and jewelry. Traditional Irish stores like Kilkenny Shop specialize in everything from pottery to home decor. The common theme here is high-quality, Irish-made goods.

Escargots on a white plate with a side of sliced bread

Local Cuisine

You'll find Paris' Michelin-starred restaurants in the neighborhoods lining either side of the Seine. Head there at the noon hour for lower-priced lunch menus. Feeling adventurous? Try French classics like escargot and bone marrow on toast. If you have a sweet tooth, don't miss le Paris-Brest, a circular cake filled with praline cream during your Paris cruise.

A typical designer storefront in Paris, France displaying shoes and handbags

Shopping

The Champ Elysees may be the most famous shopping avenue in Paris, with designer boutiques and global chain stores But it's in lesser-known neighborhoods — like North Marais and Rue du Chateau d'Eau — where you can find one-of-a-kind and handcrafted jewelry and goods, as well as the city's funkier fashion options.

INSIDER TIP

Take the time to stroll the streets of Paris and find restaurants, boutiques and bars hidden inside little nooks.

Southampton, England

ARRIVES:
5:30 AM
PRIME ENGLISH

COUNTRYSIDE

Your adventure doesn't have to end once you've gotten back to Southampton.

Prehistoric Adventure

Located just an hour from Southampton, Stonehenge is one of the most well-known prehistoric sites in all of Europe. Wander around the miraculous stone circle and transport yourself back in time when Neolithic engineers used only simple tools to build the huge monument — it's believed they hauled those massive stones over 240 miles from Wales without the use of machines.

The entrance to the SeaCity Museum in Southampton, England

A Port of Importance

Southampton is home to one of the largest ports in the UK and millions of travelers pass through each year. In 1912, the most famous of those travelers would pass through as they set out to America onboard the Titanic. Southampton's SeaCity museum gives you the opportunity to learn more about the events that happened aboard that famous ship.

Close up view of The Bargate gatehouse in Southampton, England

Play Knights in Armor

Step back into the medieval era and walk the old walls of the city. Built to protect the town from attack by sea, most of the wall is still standing, leaving visitors a spectacular view of Southampton and the sea. Watch as boats enter the port city, and see how it would have been if you were a knight on watch hundreds of years ago.

Traditional fish and chips in England

Local Cuisine

Head to the pub for a refreshing glass of ale to pair with crispy, mouthwatering fish and chips. If fried food isn't your thing, go in for a salad with fresh watercress, the peppery green that the Hampshire region is famous for. You'll also find upscale fare based on England's most-loved flavors: Try chicken with Indian-inspired vegetable pakora and tandoori puree or braised Hampshire beef with ale cream.

Various antiques at a market

Shopping

Shop for big-name brands galore at Westquay Shopping Centre, the premier shopping destination of the South Coast. Head to Bedford Place for independent shops and boutiques — the country's oldest traditional shoemaker is located here. On weekends, wander down the road to Bar Street to check out the local market for antiques, crafts, vintage accessories and jewelry.
