Nassau

As the capital of the Bahamas, Nassau is a popular destination for holidaymakers who want sun, sea and sand – even the blue and yellow stripes on their flag represent the sandy beaches and ocean waves – but it also retains a taste of Europe thanks to still being a member of the British Commonwealth.

Port of the Month – Barbados

Think of Barbados and it conjures up palm trees blowing in a gentle breeze, bright blue skies, white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. You wouldn’t be far wrong to picture this paradise as Barbados is all this and more.

5 Shore Excursions on a Panama Canal Cruise

We recently named the Panama Canal as our cruise destination of the month thanks to its fascinating voyage through the isthmus connecting North and South America as well as the rich and varied culture that a Panama Canal cruise encompasses.

If historical sites are of particular interest to you, then made Hadrian’s Gate one of your stops whilst in the city. It’s said that the Queen of Sheba once …
