Ports of Call
Georgetown, Grand Cayman - The premier attraction here is Seven Mile Beach...white as snow, soft as talc. Name your game and you'll find it here: Snorkeling, swimming, sailing, windsurfing over rippling waves, or gliding under them in a passenger submarine. Or perhaps shopping is your game. Duty-free bargains abound: crystal, perfume, jewelry fashioned of silver and prized pink coral.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas - When was the last time you whiled away the day on a private Caribbean island? Here's your chance. The island is ours; the day is yours to sun, swim, and sail. Enjoy!
Montego Bay, Jamaica - Jamaica is for lovers and lovers of nature. Here you may drift lazily down the Martha Brae on a gondola made of bamboo. Stroll gardens studded with koi ponds. Sip a Planter's Punch on the porch of a working plantation's great house. Whatever you do, don't miss Dunn's River Falls, where the cool water from the rain forest cascades over natural stone steps to the sea.
Port Canaveral, Florida - Port Canaveral lies just 35 miles east of Orlando, along the 72 miles of pristine beaches known as Florida's Space Coast. Besides its close proximity to Orlando's theme parks, you'll find space-age attractions of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.

Please visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link below. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
