Set Sail Around the Word

Ports of call are the destinations your cruise ship will stop in between sailing to allow passengers to adventure and explore. Most itineraries will include some port activities, especially specialty cruises. If there's something you really want to experience, planning your excursions in advance is a good idea. Activities fill up fast and it’s always a plus to know exactly what to pack for. Some cruise lines even own their own private beaches, so you may have access to exclusive perks like these when sailing. Each port of call offers plenty of activities and sites to see! There's a whole world of possibilities to what awaits. 

Below is a map to quickly show where Mandy has been by cruising to these destination ports. She hopes to see this whole map in blue!

Later on this page, you will see a list with each specific port Mandy has been to!
