If you’re a fan of military might, Cartagena is packed with fabulous fortifications paying tribute to its historical importance. From the Roman Theatre to the Bateria de Castillitos and Conception Castle there’s plenty to keep you enthralled. The city has many fascinating museums too, including a museum of medicine. If you prefer, treat yourself in the bars, handicraft shops and wine cellars of this vibrant port.

Walk the perfumed gardens and cool arches of the exquisite Alhambra Palace in Granada for an unforgettable insight into Moorish Spain. Strut your stuff in glamourous and chic Puerto Banus or explore Malaga’s cultural heritage with a tour of Picasso’s birthplace, the 13th Century Gibralfaro Castle and the magnificent cathedral. Tapas tasting in the city’s lively bars and restaurants is an unmissable treat.

Day 4-6: At Sea:

Sit back, kick off your shoes and put your feet up during our ‘at sea’ days, where you can chill in the bar, lounge by the pool or enjoy a relaxing beauty treatment in the spa. For simple pleasures, why not try a game of table tennis? Or if you’re feeling energetic, now’s the chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, from spectacular, West-End-style entertainment to adrenalin-charged sports.

Explore white-washed houses, 17th and 18th century churches, cobbled streets and small squares in colourful Ponta Delgada, the capital of Sao Miguel island in the Azores. Swim in the thermal waters of the Ponta da Ferraria or take in the stunning scenery at Fogo Lake, in the crater of a volcano.

Day 13: Nassau, Bahamas: Arrive 09.00 Depart 18.00

Snorkelling in clear blue lagoons, swimming with dolphins, watery fun and games in an aqua adventure park – there’s plenty to enjoy in stunning Nassau. Relax to the sweet sound of the steel drums, sip a cocktail at sunset or see baby sea turtles being hatched. At Predator Lagoon, get up close to sharks and barracudas or indulge in tantalising shopping – it’s what dream holidays are all about.

Vision of the Seas:

There’s plenty to do on board Vision of the Seas. A great choice of activities, relaxation and refreshments await you. Vision of the Seas always manages to feel intimate.

Facilities on offer include sun-filled atriums, a choice of bars, restaurants and lounges, pools and whirlpools, a spa and fitness centre.

Test your strength and agility on the rock climbing wall before relaxing with a well-earned massage in the spa. (Personally I’d just go for the massage!) Enjoy a champagne cocktail at sundown in the Viking Crown Lounge. Situated 150 feet above the waves, with a 360 degree panoramic vista, the views on Vision of the Seas are nothing short of spectacular.
