Jewel of the Seas
Efter en dag på nya stränder dyker du ner i en värld av äventyr på Jewel of the Seas®. Ta dig upp för klätterväggen eller se en film på skärmen vid poolkanten. Hämta programmet till West End to Broadway och ta ett glas på Vintages. Det är dags att satsa allt på äventyr.

UTRUSTAD FÖR ÄVENTYR

Upptäck alla de otaliga sätt att tillbringa dagarna på mellan de olika hamnarna. Skapa lite vänskaplig konkurrens med en runda minigolf och ta äventyret till nya höjder på klätterväggen. Om du är ute efter att slappa lite kan du titta på film vid poolkanten eller checka in på Vitality℠ at Sea Spa och fitnesscenter.

VÅGA PROVA

Oavsett om du sippar på vin från hela världen på Vintages, njuter av färskrullad sushi på Izumi, unnar dig en förstklassig stek på Chops Grille℠ eller sätter dig till bords för ett epikureiskt äventyr i fem rätter på Chef's Table så kommer du att uppleva att smakerna är lika spännande som stränderna du upptäcker.

INTE SAMMA GAMLA VISA OCH DANS

Res från Londons West End till New York i West End to Broadway, en hyllning till musikaler som sträcker sig över kontinenterna. Och res från det uråldriga Atlantis till det färgstarka Indien i den himmelska föreställningen City of Dreams. På det här fartyget är alla föreställningar en succé.

Barcelona
Avgår vid 5:00 PM
Det är lätt att förstå varför Barcelona är Spaniens mest välbesökta stad. Som huvudstad i regionen Katalonien är denna kulturella stad ett mosaikkonstverk som utgör en 2 000 år gammal blandning av solkyssta stränder, banbrytande arkitektur och en världsberömd scen för mat och dryck. Den katalanska arkitekten Antoni Gaudí lämnade sitt modernistiska avtryck över hela staden, medan andra medeltida skatter återfinns på de historiska torgen i Barri Gòtic. Här kan du gå vilse i sagoskimrande trädgårdar i Parc Güell eller ta en kurs i katalansk matlagningskonst. Se konstsamlingar dedikerade till Picasso och Miro eller ta linbanan högst upp på berget Montjuïc, där du kan njuta av den underbara utsikten över staden.

SKYHÖGA SEVÄRDHETER

Ta en nära titt på La Sagrada Família, en katedral och mästerverk som ritades av den hyllade katalanska arkitekten Antoni Gaudí. Förundras över de skyhöga spirorna och stig sedan in för att beundra den vackra mosaiken, Montjuïc-stenpelarna och fasaden som föreställer Jesu födelse. Du kan även klättra längst upp i spirorna för att få panoramautsikt över staden.

FÅNGA DAGEN VID HAVET

Med sju stränder som sträcker sig över mer än 3 kilometer längs Medelhavets kustlinje är Barcelonas hamn känd för några av världens bästa sol- och badäventyr. Slappna av längs kusten, paddla kajak på djupblått vatten eller ge dig ut på en fisketur för att få chansen att dra upp tonfisk, svärdfisk eller medelhavsspjutfisk.

MITT I ALLT

Ta en promenad längs gågatan La Rambla och upplev stadens sanna anda. Souvenirbutiker, gatuartister, blomsterstånd, trottoarkaféer och katalanska folkdansare gör detta till en färgstark plats. Den fantastiska mittpunkten, katedralen, härstammar från 1100-talet och från tornet kan du njuta av en hisnande utsikt över medeltida Barcelona.

DET LOKALA KÖKET

Barcelona har bemästrat konsten att äta. Många restauranger serverar kreativt nytt spanskt kök, medan restauranger närmare vattnet serverar skaldjurspaella och lunchmenyer med flera rätter som omfattar ett glas mousserande cava. Om du vill prova på det katalanska köket kan du smaka pa amb tomàquet (tomattäckt bröd). Annars kan du mumsa på spanska tapas (små förrätter) vid baren som lokalbefolkningen, med husets egen vermouth i handen.

Från 7:00 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.

The hub of Spain's southern Costa del Sol, Málaga is the picture of paradise. Scale the hilltop to dramatic La Alcazaba, the sandy-colored Moorish fortress dating back to the 11th century that overlooks this ancient seaside city. Sun yourself on the idyllic beaches of Caleta and Malagueta, taking in views of the mountains across the bay. See the eccentric works of modernist master Pablo Picasso, the city's most famous native son, at the Picasso Museum. Cruise to Málaga and immerse yourself in baroque and renaissance architecture at Málaga Cathedral, with its elaborate arches and stone reliefs depicting the saints, or turn the clock back to the first century A.D. at the ruins of the Roman Theatre.

Moor History

Ascend to the top of La Alcazaba, the medieval Moorish fortress that towers over the city. This palatial fortification was built by the Hammudid dynasty in the early 11th century and is the best-preserved Moorish castle in Spain. From here, you can wander down to the Roman Amphitheatre that sits beneath it, before you gaze up at the 16th-century cathedral that sits right in the city center.
Insider tip
The center of Málaga is relatively small and walkable, but don't take this for granted — three to five hours will pass quickly.

Work on Your Tan

It just wouldn't be a trip to the Costa del Sol without a little coast and sun. Most tourists stick to the convenient La Malagueta Beach, but if you've got more than a couple hours in Málaga, you can take a taxi to less crowded but equally beautiful beaches to the east, like Playamar or Playa de Burriana.
Insider tip
If you don't speak Spanish, make sure to cache a Spanish dictionary in your smartphone's Translate app.

Paint With Picasso

The most obvious way to follow Málaga's Picasso trail is to visit the Picasso Museum, which has many pieces you won't find anywhere else. You can also visit the artist's birthplace, or take a "Ride With Picasso" bike tour that features Picasso-focused city sightseeing, including Plaza de Merced, where the formidable painter took his first steps as a child.

Lisbon is a quintessential European city, full of natural beauty, historic architecture and culinary pleasures — not to mention one of the best climates anywhere on the planet. To get to know Portugal's capital, walk between the captivating miradouros — terrace viewpoints that are scattered on the hilltops, offering stunning vistas from the sea to the castles and beyond. Watch as the light peeks through the clouds and shines down on The City of Seven Hills during your cruise to Lisbon. If you're a history buff, head to Belem or nearby Sintra to explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Jeronimos Monastery and Quinta da Regalaira.

The city's awash in colorful buildings and grand forts, including the Romanticist architecture of the pastel-hued Pena Palace — more like a castle, really — and the extravagant Quinta da Regalaira villa. Or, wander through gardens inspired by Dante's "Inferno."
Insider tip
Tram 28 is the best-known tram line, taking riders through all the must-see neighborhoods, but the trolleys fill up quickly. Opt for a lesser known route to avoid crowds.

The new and the old meet head-on in Bilbao — the unofficial capital of Basque country in Spain's northwest, near southern France. Once an industrial capital, the opening of the Guggenheim in 1997 propelled Bilbao into a hub of outstanding art, architecture and gastronomy. Today, modern trams travel on historic avenues like the Siete Calles ("Seven Streets") of Casco Viejo — Bilbao's medieval quarter, which today is dotted with boutiques, bakeries and outdoor cafes. Meanwhile, futuristic buildings like the titanium-clad Guggenheim Museum and the Gran Hotel Domine hang over the Nervion river that runs through the city. There's no other city with such a polarity of scenes in Spain. Get onboard a Spain cruise and see for yourself why Bilbao is the pride and joy of Basque Country.
