La Palma, Canary Islands
Today the ship drops anchor on the Canary Island of La Palma. This beautiful island is a UNESCO biosphere reserve thanks to its rugged, forested landscape dotted with volcanoes like Cumbre Vieja and Teneguia. Stroll around the narrow cobbled streets of wooden-balconied houses and mansions in the island's capital, Santa Cruz de la Palma. Uncover local history and culture at Museo Naval, Museo de la Seda, Museo Casa Roja, and Museo Insular. Explore the craft shops and see artisans at work at the town of Villa de Mazo. Pay a visit to Roque de los Muchachos observatories to see the world's largest telescope - Gran Telescopio Canarias - and enjoy close up views of the amazing night sky. Venture 2km north of Santa Cruz to discover the magical Santuario de la Virgen de las Nieves church. Take a trip inland to admire the huge crater covered in pine forests and waterfalls at Caldera de Taburiente National Park.
6
Tenerife, Canary Islands
Tenerife is largest of the Canary Islands. The island is dominated by the dormant volcano Mount Teide; hop on a cable car to marvel at the views or take a hike along the trail. Tenerife is also known for its famous Carnaval de Santa Cruz with its spectacular parades, music, dancing, and colourful costumes. Siam Park is a Thai-themed water park packed with swimming pools, exhilarating slides, and plenty of family fun. Experience up-close encounters with gorillas, tigers, penguins, and other species at the landscaped Loro Park. Party animals can discover Playa de las Americas and its famed nightlife scene. Try your hand at windsurfing, kite surfing, or parasailing on El Medano Beach. The island’s capital, Santa Cruz, is home to Auditorio de Tenerife, Museum of Fine Arts, and Museum of Nature and Man. The UNESCO-listed colonial city of San Cristobal de la Laguna is well worth a visit too.
7
Gran Canaria, Canary Islands
The Canary island of Gran Canaria is famous for its beaches, water sports, food, and marine life. Beach lovers will delight in a day spent sunbathing, watching people body board, and enjoy a mojito or two on the promenade at Playa de las Canteras beach. Learn how to paddle board, surf, or scuba dive in Arguineguin where there’s also a collection of shisha bars. Adventurers delight as you hike Caldera de Bandama and admire the views that extend the entire north-east and central areas of the island – and on the way down enjoy a well-earned glass of Rioja at the nearby Vino Del Monte. Get close with wildlife and see dolphins, turtles, seals, toucans, and much more at Palmitos Park – the biggest zoological park in the Canary Islands. Or, swap seals for slides at Aqualand Water Park which is only ten minutes away from the Zoo.
8
Lanzarote, Canary Islands
The ship drops anchor today on the island of Lanzarote. Admire Castillo San Gabriel and Castillo San Jose that form the backdrop to Arrecife harbour. The beautiful golden sand of Playa del Reducto is ideal for a morning's sunbathing, or take a stroll along the seafront promenade to the peaceful Playa del Cable. Venture inland to explore the landscape of Timanfaya National Park's fire mountains or uncover the spectacular natural concert hall and subterranean lagoon at Cueva de Los Verdes.

Lisbon, Portugal
Spread across seven hills on the shores of River Tagus is Portugal's capital city, Lisbon. Pavement cafes, bustling squares and serene gardens sit alongside palaces, bridges and castles in this waterside city. Immerse yourself in culture at Calouste Gulbenkian Museum and National Museum of Contemporary Art, or enjoy the colourful marine life at Oceanarium. Take a vintage tram ride through the city's cobbled streets, admiring Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower on the way. Haggle for bargains at the lively Thieves Market, or explore designer shops on Rua do Carmo, Rua Garrett and Avenida da Liberdade. Venture further afield and discover the fairytale places and ornate villas in Sintra or go dolphin-watching in Setúbal.

Background
Aurora
Overview
Aurora is a mid-sized cruise ship, instantly recognisable thanks to her elegant tiered stern. Like Oriana, Aurora is designed as a classic ocean going vessel and is therefore ideally suited to world cruising. At her heart is a Lalique-inspired waterfall which forms the centrepiece of her atrium – one of her signature features. When it comes to bars she offers a variety to suit every mood including her Crow’s Nest bar, which offers a great view of every port along the way (and the oceans in between), Champions sports bar and adjacent casino, and Anderson’s with its rather sophisticated wood panelled walls. Entertainment wise there’s the Playhouse cinema which shows recently released films, a show lounge and theatre. Her dining options include her two main restaurants, as well as a bistro by Marco Pierre White and an al fresco grill restaurant. P&O Cruises Aurora is designed for walking or jogging with the opportunity to do just that around her circumference thanks to the broad teak promenade deck
