Galveston, oh, Galveston! – You can hear the legendary Glen Campbell singing the praises of the city in that classic country song. So much to see and do in this Texan city, and Greg and Gary gave you a wonderful guide this morning on the National Cruise & Travel Show, and here is the Cruise Deal of the Week to whisk you off to Galveston in April…
On the 13th April you fly over to the USA and enjoy 2 nights in Galveston, giving you ample time to explore the city, enjoy the Art Galleries and explore the many restaurants the city has to offer.
Your cruise awaits as you embark Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas for a relaxing 16 night transatlantic voyage to Europe.
First up, the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, and the colonial city of San Juan. San Juan is one of the biggest natural harbors in the Caribbean and is the second oldest city in the Americas. This beautiful city, called “La Ciudad Amurallada,” was founded in 1521. Cobblestone streets, hanging balconies, chapels and many plazas characterize the historic end of the city, while modern amenities and high-rise hotels have sprung up on the more developed beachfront.
You sail across the Atlantic Ocean for 5 days, relax and enjoy these tranquil days at sea, with the facilities of the Vision of the Seas at your leisure.
You are given your first taste of Europe when you arrive in the dramatic islands of the Azores. The Portuguese settlement of Ponta Delgada is your gateway and you’ll be astonished to see, in the depths of the huge crater at the center of the island, two lakes–one emerald green, the other sky-blue. More astonishments: a cluster of hot springs bubbling in the mist!
You sail around the Iberian Peninsula and arrive at the city of Malaga. Malaga is famous for its art galleries Museo Picasso, Malaga Fine arts museum, the Roman theatre and the narrow streets filled with Tapas bars. On the city outskirts you have the Alhambra Gardens and the charming resorts of Marbella and Puerto Banus
Alicante, Spain is one of the most well-known towns on the Costa Blanca. Situated between the mountains and the sea on Spain’s coast, it owes its name to the white-sand beaches that stretch for miles. Alicante has an impressive harbour with a wide strolling esplanade, plenty of first-class shopping, popular beaches, and the region’s famed paella.
One more port of call awaits, and its Palma de Mallorca on the Balearic Island of Mallorca. Mallorca (sometime spelt Majorca) is known for beach resorts, sheltered coves, limestone mountains and Roman and Moorish remains. Capital Palma has nightlife, the Moorish Almudaina Royal Palace and 13th-century Santa María Cathedral. Stone-built villages include Pollença, with its art galleries and music festival, and hillside Fornalutx, surrounded by citrus plantations.
Finally you arrive in one of the most famous cities in the world – Barcelona! Discover the ornately wrought works of Antonio Gaudi. A local architect, whose works culminate in the surrealistic spires of the yet to be finished Sagrada Familia. Take a stroll down the colourful Ramblas. Explore the Gothic Quarter. Ride a cable car to the summit of Montjuic. Or sample local wines and authentic tapas as you watch the hustle and bustle of daily life pass you by. 2 nights in a downtown Barcelona hotel will allow plenty of opportunities to explore the city, before you begin your flight back to Australia.
