Make the most of your day in charming Casablanca to see the incredible Hassan II Mosque; grab a bite to eat at the world-famous Rick’s Café; or even join a tour to Marrakech to explore the bustling souks. In Agadir, be sure to enjoy the abundant sunshine on fine golden-sands, and take in superb views at the ruins of the Ancient Kasbah which overlooks the city.

In Santa Cruz de La Palma you’ll find historic churches, pretty palaces and several fantastic bars and restaurants – perfect for sampling Canarian culture and cuisine. With calls into Porto Santo and Funchal, you’ll also have plenty of time to admire gorgeous floral landscapes of Madeira; while on the Portuguese mainland you can sample delicious port wine in Oporto on a tour from Leixoes, and discover the architectural delights of Lisbon.

Admire the sun-kissed splendour of the fabulous French Riviera as you cruise along the coast aboard Boudicca, and step ashore to experience the glitz and glamour of this stunning region as you encounter four luxurious destinations in just three days.

In historic Toulon you can explore the citys beautiful Old Town and appreciate the fine Romanesque architecture of the grand Cathédrale Sainte-Marie-Majeure; savour the sights and scents of traditional Provencal markets on Cours Lafayette, and take a cable car to the top of Mont Faron for unspoilt views of the Rivieras magnificent scenery. A morning in Nice could be spent relaxing on the gorgeous golden beaches, or wandering along the iconic, palm-lined Promenade des Anglais – the perfect way to prepare for an exciting call into Monaco. Here you can indulge yourself at world-famous restaurants and glamourous casinos, immersing yourself in the vibrant nightlife, and explore roads used for the annual Formula One race, where extravagant locals often parade their own exotic supercars.

Cannes – home of the world-famous international film festival – is your final call on the Riviera. Sample the movie-star lifestyle with a stroll along La Croisette – the catwalk by the sea – stopping to enjoy fantastic shopping in high-end stores and boutiques along the way, soak up the glorious sunshine on the beautiful beaches, or perhaps take a tour to St. Tropez, the destination of choice for film stars from yesteryear. You may even spot a few celebrities here if you are lucky. You will also sail to Spain and Portugal on this stunning 16 night sailing, visiting four stylish, attraction-packed cities.

German Waterways 10 nights on the Braemar

Air conditioning Laundry service Luggage Storage Nature or Scenic Area Paraplegic Rooms Restaurant Rooms Satellite TV Spa Swimming Pool

The incredible diversity of Germany awaits your discovery on this cultural jaunt aboard Braemar; which includes hours of daytime scenic cruising along stunning, highly-rated waterways and calls into some of the country’s most beautiful, historic and exciting destinations.

Sailing along the size-restricted Flensburg fjord, you’ll enjoy unspoilt views of the picturesque countryside lining both the German and Danish shores of the fjord, and glide past the pretty Oxen Islands. Once ashore in Flensburg, sample the local brew at one of Germany’s best-known breweries, or perhaps journey into the delightful Schleswig-Holstein region and visit historic sites such as Gluecksburg Castle. Docking in Travemünde next, you can take a trip to UNESCO-listed Lübeck and admire the outstanding structures from the city’s Hanseatic past before sailing 53-nautical-miles along the calm, tranquil waters of the Kiel Canal – a feat that only smaller ships such as Braemar can manage.

An extended stay in Hamburg allows you plenty of time to explore the city and discover the many highlights, such as the imposing neo-Renaissance style Rathaus, incredible St. Michael’s Church and bustling HafenCity urban quarter – home to busy bars, trendy restaurants and lively plazas – at your leisure. You could even enjoy a glide across the beautiful Alster Lake in the evening on an unforgettable boat trip. A full day of scenic cruising along the enchanting Elbe and Weser Rivers is then followed by a call into beautiful Bremen. With Balmoral docking in the heart of the city – rather than an hour away in Bremerhaven – you’ll find a multitude of attractions from the moment you step ashore. Visit the UNESCO-listed market square to see the impressive 15th century Town Hall and an abundance of gothic-style structures; then head to the modern Überseestadt district to catch a show at the theatre and grab a bite in one of many stylish cafés and restaurants.
