Setting sail from Fort Lauderdale

These days Fort Lauderdale is a sophisticated place awash with upmarket hotels and excellent restaurants. The glorious weather and swathes of golden beach are still a huge draw, but there are also plenty of cultural attractions, such as the Museum of Art and the Museum of Discovery and Science. The city also boasts 300 miles of navigable waterways and canals, meaning there's plenty of space for the resident millionaires to park their yachts, and the cruise port is one of the busiest in the world.

Don't miss

Bonnet House Museum and Gardens is a great visit, with remains dating back to 2000 BC – in Florida - who knew there was anything so old there?! It’s a fascinating museum too, and the gardens are beautiful.

Arriving in Rotterdam

One of the great ports of Europe, Rotterdam's impressive skyline can be seen from far and wide. With great architecture both ancient and modern, fantastic exhibition and concert halls, theatres, pretty galleries and numerous museums, there is so much to do when you stay here. Excellent restaurants reflect global influences, and in this metropolitan city there is also a great night life. During the day, the shopping is excellent, and countless small harbours are situated along the banks of Rotterdam's river, the Maas, each with its own unique character.

Our tip

Visit the historic and picturesque area of Delfshaven, exploring the tiny courtyards and buildings laced with canals. The Pilgrim Fathers fled England to stay here before continuing to North America.
