Day Date Port of call Arrival Departure
1 Sat 22 Dec 2012 Port Canaveral, USA 4.00pm
Exotic Western Caribbean Port Canaveral is just north of Cocoa Beach and east of Merritt Island, and is one of the busiest cruise ports in Florida. It has warm, inviting beaches, rolling surf and year round sunshine. The city of Cape Canaveral is one of the friendliest communities in northern Brevard County. Tourism and the space industry are two of the top job sectors for the residents as it is also home to the Kennedy Space Centre.

A tour of the Space Centre gives one the opportunity to tour NASA’s launch and landing facilities, ride the Shuttle Launch Experience, participate in the Astronaut Training Experience as well as view interactive simulators and live shows. There are also Space Shuttles and rockets on display, historical NASA exhibits, IMAX movies, and launch viewing. Nearby Cocoa Beach offers many other enjoyable ‘things to do’ - such as visiting the attractions of Cocoa Beach Pier and Jetty Park.

The Canaveral National Seashore, a 58,000-acre long and undeveloped park located on a barrier island with its amazing variety of plants and bird species, and the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, are both well worth visiting if time permits. You'll also find thrilling activities like fishing, boating, parasailing, and gaming opportunities. If relaxing in the sun and being by the water sounds like a plan, try one of the public parks within the Port, or enjoy the delightful views while riding one of the bike paths.

3 Mon 24 Dec 2012 Cozumel, Mexico 10.00am 6.00pm
Exotic Western Caribbean Cozumel is a Caribbean island just off the Yucatan Peninsula in SE Mexico. It has grown steadily over the years since Jacques Cousteau first put the island on the map as a sea turtle sanctuary. While it has great beaches, friendly people and safe streets, with prices comparable to other Mexican tourist destinations, most visitors travel to Cozumel to see what is under the water. However, they also discover a culture rich in warm hospitality, as in Cozumel hospitality isn’t simply a practice, it is a belief. This paradise island will enchant you with its natural beauty, magical ambience and excellent services.

Chankanaab National Park is a beautiful conservation area that protects the incredible plant and animal species found both on the Island and within its amazing world-famous coral reefs. On top of offering world class diving and snorkelling, this beautiful park houses the sea lion show, a botanical garden, reproductions of famous archaeological sites, a typical (artificial) Mayan village, an underground river, a tropical lagoon teeming with brightly coloured tropical fish, restaurants, and a dive shop. It also offers a wide array of things to do such as swimming with the dolphins, gastronomic delights, and sightseeing. Mayan culture is promoted here by the cruise industry, though the island is far from genuine Mayan sites.

Cozumel's only town, San Miguel, has a laid back elegance combining the charming remnants of colonial Mexico with the conveniences of modern life. Its heart and soul is the center plaza, known officially as Parque Benito Juarez, or simply as Plaza Central. Shops, restaurants and hotels surround the plaza, and since the whole area is blocked off to traffic, it can become quite crowded. Still, the area is a pleasant place for a walk. The main stretch, the Rafael Melgar Avenue, is lined with high-end jewellery boutiques, souvenir shops, department stores and restaurants.

4 Tue 25 Dec 2012 Belize City, Belize 8.00am 6.00pm
Exotic Western Caribbean Belize City, the largest city in the Central American nation of Belize, is located at the mouth of the Belize River on the coast of the Caribbean. For those who spend some time at this small but somehow sprawling metropolis - rather than leave immediately to visit the northern cays - the city will reveal a distinguished history, and several superb sights. Through interaction with the city’s inhabitants, visitors appreciate that the city’s astonishing energy and contrasting easy-going Caribbean atmosphere is principally due to the wonderful variety of ethnic groups.

Visit the Marine and Coastal Zone Museums at the north side’s Marine Terminal. It offers displays of the eco systems that support the reef and cays, as well as the historical Fort George Lighthouse. Appreciate what the Baron Bliss Memorial means to the locals, and explore the Museum of Belize that leaves you with a real sense of the extent and impact of the Maya civilization. The city’s commercial centre houses banks, large stores, an enclosed marketplace, and a variety of gift and souvenir shops.

When hungry, for a real taste of Belizean cuisine, skip the expensive restaurants and have lunch - supplied by a range of vendors - on one of the benches at Battlefield Park, while you feed your senses on views of the city. There are many other historically significant sites around the city including St. John's Anglican Cathedral built by slaves in 1812, and Government House that is now a museum. Both testify to the British occupation.

5 Wed 26 Dec 2012 Roatan, Honduras 10.00am 6.00pm
Exotic Western Caribbean Roatan (aka Ruatan, Rattan) is the largest of the Bay Islands, which are a part of Honduras, lying just over 48 km from the northern coast of the Honduran mainland. It is known around the world for its scuba diving. The reef surrounding the island attracts beautiful tropical fish and snorkellers alike. Dive attractions include sea walls and shipwrecks. Sea turtles, dolphins, and whales swim in the waters. On the other hand Roatan is an island with beaches distinctive for their quietness, and crystal clear waters that will make you enjoy the sea as if you were in an enormous natural swimming pool.

There are several well-developed communities, such as Coxen Hole, French Harbour, West Bay, and West End, that are worth visiting, each with its own attraction, For example, an iguana farm east of French Harbor provides a refuge for thousands of iguanas. One tour takes guests to a great height and then the participants take the Zipline down to the coast, enjoying some fantastic scenery along the way. Though some cruise lines promote Roatan for its Maya historical sites, indeed these are invented, and the many archaeological sites on the island originate with indigenous Pech.

Visit the Sante’ Wellnes Centre Day Spa in a most peaceful setting and experience a comprehensive spa and massage therapy session. Whatever you do keep a lookout for the parrots, iguana, and monkeys that live in the wild on this tropical island. Absorb the atmosphere of the local community by visiting Earth Mama’s Garden Cafe & Lifestyle for great food on a budget.

6 Thu 27 Dec 2012 Costa Maya, Mexico 7.00am 3.00pm
Exotic Western Caribbean Costa Maya is a small tourist region of Mexico that is part of the Mexican Caribbean coast. It includes two small villages, Mahahual and Xcalak. While the port itself is home to a modern tourist shopping mall, a central plaza with saltwater pools and swim-up style bars, as well as stores selling a mixture of souvenir items, most visitors enjoy going further afield. For example Mahahual offers soft sandy beaches, a coral beach, as well as several bars, restaurants and shops. It is also building New Mahahual, which is sure to increase its attraction to visitors.

A trip to nearby Uyumil Che - nicknamed the Monkey Farm - can be entertaining. This facility can best be described as a rehabilitation centre for injured wild animals that need to be returned to their natural habitat. Bird watchers are delighted with the number of toucans that can be spotted from the nearby jungle. For historians, exploring the Maya ruins that provide glimpses into the past, is a must. Chacchoban is the closest at a little over an hour away, while just a bit further is Kohunlich.

Another drawcard is the world’s second largest barrier reef that is a magnet for snorkellers and divers. Not only is the reef magnificent, but adding to its attraction are the numerous sunken ships. All visitors are sure to absorb the beauty of Costa Maya’s unspoiled coastal land, vast natural resources, rich historic and cultural influences, as well as getting a true insight into the essence of Mayan culture.
