Ports of Call
Cadiz, Spain - This 3,000-year-old town is your portal to Seville, home of flamenco and the exquisite Alcazar Palace; and Jerez, sherry capital at vine-covered bodegas; From Cadiz you can taste the sherries of Jerez and visit an Andalusian equestrian school, or drive through cork plantations to see the marvelous city of Seville with its Alcazar Royal Palace. Cadiz itself boasts a 13th-century cathedral and ancient castle walls.
Lisbon, Portugal - Make your own discoveries in the city that launched the Age of Discovery. Cross the River Tagus on its soaring suspension bridge. Wander the maze of streets in the Alfama, the old Moorish quarter, dominated by the medieval Castle of St. George where peacocks strut and shriek. Stroll the Baixa, shop for elegant shoes.
Monte Carlo, Monaco - The Casino, of course--if only to venture into the enchanting Salon Rose, with its nymphs on the ceiling. A drive along the scenic Corniche which takes you to Nice, undisputed capital of the Riviera.
Tripoli, Libya - More than 1,700 years ago, Tripoli was formed by the union of three cities-Sabrata, Ouia and Liptes. Before that, it was one of the four most powerful Phoenician cities in the Mediterranean.

Today, it is a capital of absolutely beautiful architecture, with a dash of Ottoman and Spanish influences subtly evident in the streets and faces. Tripoli is full of warm, welcoming people, who are as curious about westerners as you will be about their lives and families.

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.
