New York City, New York, USA
New York, New York... so good they named it twice! New York isn't called 'the city that never sleeps' for nothing - day or night this place is alive with amazing things to see and do. First up there’s the iconic skyline, with its skyscrapers and buildings you’ll recognise from television. Ascend the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, or the One World Observatory for a bird's eye view of the city's five boroughs. Pay your respects at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, follow in the footsteps of immigrants at Ellis Island, board the Staten Island ferry to see the Statue of Liberty up-close, or stroll the High Line urban walking trail above the city streets. The Big Apple has got retail therapy well and truly covered, with everything from huge department stores and designer names to niche boutiques, bustling markets, and thrift store chic. Mouth-watering international culinary experiences, open green spaces, and a plethora of galleries and museums; add those to your must-do list too. Then there’s the non-stop nightlife: from Times Square's bright lights to Broadway musicals, world class clubs, to hip little hangouts.

Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
Puerto Plata is a city on the Dominican Republic's Atlantic north coast and best known for its sandy shores. The city's old colonial-era centre is dominated by the 16th-century Fortaleza San Felipe, a Spanish fortress that now houses historical and military artefacts. A great spot to swim with dolphins and sharks is Ocean World Adventure Park or Playa Dorada is a great family day out to soak up some sunshine and enjoy the seaside. Admire scenic views across Puerto Plata with a ride on the cable car or pay a visit to Damajaqua Cascades with its beautiful waterfall and canyoning adventures. Museo Del Ambar is a fascinating Victorian building featuring preserved amber and a gift shop brimming with unique amber jewellery.

Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas
Charlotte Amalie is the capital of St. Thomas, an idyllic paradise island with beautiful bays, equally gorgeous golden-sand beaches and stunning, busy harbours that are perfect for wiling away the hours under the baking Caribbean sunshine. Charlotte Amalie – the island’s most popular tourist destination – is typically Caribbean, a city packed with wonderful sights and local delights to seek out and enjoy. The city is renowned for its fine examples of Danish colonial architecture and the St. Thomas Synagogue – the second oldest Synagogue in the Western Hemisphere, 17th century Blackbeard’s Castle – a U.S. National Historic Landmark – and Fort Christian – the Virgin Island’s oldest standing structure – are all not to be missed. There is also an abundance of shops to indulge in some retail therapy, where locally-made crafts and gifts are sold, as well as a number of bars and restaurants serving delicious Caribbean treats.

Philipsburg, St Maarten
The ship drops anchor today at St Maarten's Dutch capital city - Philipsburg. Stroll along the shops on bustling Front Street or enjoy a couple of hours’ beach time on Great Bay beach. Fly through the trees at the Fly Zone at Loterie Farm or explore the island by quad bike. See local plant and animal life at St Maarten Zoological and Botanical Garden, and caterpillars and butterflies at the Butterfly Farm. You can also swim with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery Anguilla or admire heart-stopping views in the Pic du Paradis hills.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Tortola is the largest of the British Virgin Islands. Powder-white sands, azure seas and verdant green mountains set the scene; equally matched by tasty culinary experiences, luxurious holiday resorts, and a wealth of famous attractions.

Get up close to nature at Sage Mountain National Park or visit the giant boulders and rock formations at The Baths on Virgin Gorda. Go surfing at Cane Garden Bay or snorkel amongst tropical fish and coral at Smuggler's Cove. Swim with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery or sample locally-made rum at Callwood's Rum Distillery.

Grand Turk is the capital island of the Turks and Caicos and the place where Christopher Columbus first made landfall on his initial voyage to the New World in 1492. Find many Colonial-style buildings and ruins and explore the Turks and Caicos National Museum to discover the islands' history. Try snorkelling and diving off the reefs or whale watch for humpback whales off the coast.
