Tremendous ambiance emanating from wonderful people. You must take the inexpensive twenty minute ferry across to Devonport; a hidden gem with its village feel, beautiful little shops and cafes. Lovely beaches. " - johnnierainey

Sydney, Australia Arrives at 2:00pm - Feb 08, 2019, Departs at 5:00pm - Feb 08, 2019

"Add a couple of nights to stay in the heart of Sydney. The Circular Quay area is next to the main port with convenient access to Sydney's excellent water taxis and Train systems. It walking distance to them, plus walking distance to the iconic Sydney Opera House, botanical gardens, and the Rocks (shopping/dining)." - sharonsarkisian
"We stayed in Sydney three days ahead of the cruise and learned how the trains and buses worked. Got an Opal card and used the ferry to Manly Beach. Took an excursion to the Blue Mountains. Took in Featherdale Park feeding the animals, rode the rides in Scenic World, saw the Three Sisters and great scenery, rode on the Parametta River under the Sydney Harbor Bridge, ate meat pies at Harry's, explored Chinatown, toured the city doing the free walking tours at the Rocks and in the Royal Botanical Garden and Observatory. We had a fabulous time. We could have easily stayed a few more days visiting the attractions. Got to see the Sculptures by the Sea on Bondi Beach and enjoyed the walks around the beach. Saw the Sydney Opera House special show on the sails at night. We had fun. All of our tours were on our own at the various ports on this cruise because we like to make our own adventures and find it more affordable for four people. We love exploring new places and learning how to do things the way the locals do it by asking questions and researching in advance before we get there. If your tours were not so expensive, we may have considered some of them." - SATvisitor
"Whats not to like? As with San Francisco, Auckland, HongKong etc we were there for two days. Yes, we visited the bridge, the opera house, blue mountains, Featherdale Park (kangaroos and much more) , Manly beach etc. Too much to do, so little time" - johnnierainey

Adelaide, Australia Arrives at 8:00am - Feb 15, 2019, Departs at 9:00pm - Feb 15, 2019

"We booked the McLaren Vale experience for my wife and I in Adelaide. I was told by the guest services staff that I would have to pay for an adult ticket of $189 for my child who is 4 years old. I was not presented with an alternative but I wanted to take my wife on the highly recommended tour. I paid the fee of $189 for my son who is four years old to accompany us on the tour. The tour was great for two adults but NOTHING was offered for kids. So I did not understand why I was told I had to pay an adult fee of $189 for my son during a wine experience. It is not like I received an extra wine glass for tasting during the tour. I feel I was mislead when booking the excursion and was forced to pay for an adult ticket with no consideration of the type of excursion I was booking. " - kevgriffith
"nice wine region" - McPam
"Did not enjoy it here not much to do shopping was poor and very cold wind the casino was not great the river was nice you could go for a ferry ride which was fun and worth a look" - deconz

George Town, Grand Cayman Arrives at 8:00am - Mar 23, 2019, Departs at 6:00pm - Mar 23, 2019

"Grand Cayman is beautiful! I hadn't booked any excursion because I wanted a full beach day. We got on a bus right at the port, took us to 7mile beach/Calico Jacks. I believe it was $8 per person. It was Election Day there which they take very seriously so there was no alcohol served on the island. I'm not a big drinker so I didn't mind too much. We had a coconut milk and some Jerk Chicken from a food truck because Calico Jacks wasn't serving food either. We rented 2 chairs and two umbrellas for $5 each. The water is crystal clear and the sand is white. We played in the water and soaked up the sun most of the day. There were guys renting jet skis, and I saw some paddle boarders as well. We left when some of the local vendors got in a dispute about money and the police showed up. We needed to get back to the Ship anyway. We caught the bus back, really enjoyed our beach day! I would love to visit Grand Cayman again. " - marvelmates
"This might be my new favorite place on earth!" - flgardenguy
"We loved Grand Cayman! We went to 7 mile beach and by far it was the cleanest and most beautiful beach we went on this whole trip! The water was crystal clear! We also went jet skiing which was really fun." - tramos69705602

"One of the best tour guides if not the best we have ever experienced found here. " - Kennicott
"This may have been my favorite port on the trip (not including Barcelona) . Such a cute little town right off the ship. Cobblestone roads reveal great little shops. There is a market up one of the main roads, beautiful flowers, produce and more. But, there is a little “bar” right inside, they juice fresh sugar cane and lime for the most amazing mojitos! Found a great bottle of a local vodka, a volcanic distilled. Convinced it was just “marketing” I still grabbed a bottle. We got it home, and I have to say it’s pretty great! Loved that there is a wooden walk way down to the beaches and showers at the top. The black lava rock sand is beautiful. Stopped for a few pastries that were delicious. " - ghiagal
"Very pretty place. The town is a good walk and nice shopping with cute cafes and charm." - Ah1

"If you have time, take a tour to Granada to visit the Alhambra. Be sure to allow some time to explore the town of Malaga on your return" - iankaus
"Absolutely love this port. I come back most years and look forward to it. I don't go out sight seeing but lay on the beach instead. Would definitely recommend the beach if you like it. For a few euros you can use two sun beds with a sun umbrella for the day. The beach is lovely itself- sandy." - maddie901

Barcelona, Spain Arrives at 8:00am - Apr 05, 2019, Departs at 10:00pm - Apr 05, 2019

"We stayed at the H10 Metropolitan hotel pre-cruise and the Olivia Balmes hotel post-cruise. Both hotels were phenomenal! The service at both hotels was unmatched and exceptionally clean! The H10 Metropolitan hotel was a little more centrally located for us. We also did the Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour of Barcelona. Great value and a lot of fun!" - islandcruiser14
