Etter en dag med utforsking av nye steder, er det masse gøy å gjøre om bord på Jewel of the Seas®. Ta deg til topps i klatreveggen, eller se en film på lerretet ved bassenget. Ta plass for en reise fra West End til Broadway, og nyt et glass vin i Vintages. Det er på tide med en ferie som har alt.

BORDET ER DEKKET FOR OPPLEVELSER

Du kan drive med utallige aktiviteter på dagene mellom havner, for eksempel litt vennligsinnet konkurranse i et slag minigolf eller nye høyder i klatreveggen. Hvis du er ute etter å slappe av, kan du se en film på lerretet ved bassenget eller besøke Vitality℠ at Sea Spa og Fitness-senter.

VÆR DRISTIG

Uansett om du nipper til viner fra hele verden i Vintages, spiser fersk sushi på Izumi, nyter saftige biffer på Chops Grille℠ eller setter deg ned til en episk femretters på Chef's Table, får du oppleve smaker som er like spennende som havnene du besøker.

IKKE DEN SAMME GAMLE VISA

Reis fra London til New York i West End to Broadway, en feiring av musikaler på flere kontinenter. Og dra fra oldtidens Atlantis til fargerike India i det himmelske showet City of Dreams. På dette skipet er alle forestillinger en hit.

Med en 28 århundre lang historie er det ingen som slår Roma når det gjelder eventyrlige opplevelser. Byen bak et av verdens største imperier er like livlig den dag i dag, med et virvar av gamle ruiner, verdenskjent kunst og livlige gater. Her kan du leve La Dolce Vita, gjenoppleve storhetstiden til antikkens Roma og snurre gafler med deilig pasta på en trattoria. Kjør forbi århundrer gamle basilikaer i en trehjulet Ape Calessino, eller stå i ærefrykt foran malerier av italienske mestere i Villa Borghese. Enten det er Vatikanets åndelige tiltrekning, Trasteveres sjarmerende bakgater eller Colosseums dramatiske historie – den evige stad byr på endeløse eventyr.

Fra 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Situated on the white sandy beaches and crystal-clear Mediterranean waters of Spain's eastern shore, the lively city of Alicante is rich in Moorish and Spanish history. It's perched at the base of the ancient fortress Castillo de Santa Barbara, where you can climb or take an elevator to explore the castle during your Spain cruise. Wander through the narrow lanes and colorful houses of the Old Town, then head toward the seafront on the Explanada de Espana, a marble-laid promenade. Relax on the golden sand of Playa del Postiguet beach. A few streets over, at the foot of Mount Benacantil, you'll find the Basilica de Santa Maria with its distinctive twin towers — Alicante's oldest church, it was built in the 13th century when the Spanish reclaimed the city from the Moors.

Fra 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Gibraltar rocks — in more ways than one. From ancient castles to lush botanical gardens and the panoramic views you enjoy from the city's cable car, this British Overseas Territory is more than its most famous landmark, the Rock of Gibraltar. Cruise to Gibraltar and discover more than 300 years of history while touring landmarks like the Convent, where Gibraltar's governors have resided since the 18th century. Or monkey around with Barbary macaques, a semi-wild species of monkey that calls the territory home. Finish your day with a stroll through the port area, and dine outdoors for ocean views and seafood-focused, Mediterranean-inspired eats.

Explore more recent history at British colonial buildings like the Convent and the Gibraltar Parliament. Or explore the city's multicultural roots at the Cathedral of St. Mary the Crowned, Gibraltar Hindu Temple or Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque, a gift from the Saudi king.

Check out the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens, take a boat trip out on the bay to see the dolphins, or head to scenic Europa Point, which provides views of Africa on clear days.
Insider tip
Don't worry about exchanging your euros for Gibraltarian pounds — most shops in Gibraltar will happily accept the former, even if they give you change in the latter.

Get Some Light Exercise

At just 2.7 square miles in area, Gibraltar is small enough you can explore a lot of it while you're here with your cruise. That said, you need not wander far from Gibraltar Port in order to enjoy yourself. Grab a lunch of moules marinieres at a portside restaurant, then walk it off with a stroll out to the island's southern tip, Europa Point, and iconic Trinity Lighthouse.
Gibraltar, United Kingdom, Profiteroles Cream Pastry

Not surprisingly, the star of Gibraltar's culinary scene is fresh seafood, with Atlantic white fish and shellfish taking center stage. You'll also find a variety of cultural influences: Try Italian-inspired chickpea-flour calentita bread and the national dish profiterole, a French puff-pastry filled with sweet whipped cream. Al fresco dining is the way to go here, whether you sit portside or on pedestrian-filled Casemates Square.

Shopping

Gibraltar's most popular keepsake is handmade glass. Glass shops from Main Street to Casemates Square will be happy to wrap your gifts up for safekeeping.
