Explore two countries on one island today when you call on St. Martin. You will dock on the Dutch side, in Philipsburg, and have the chance to contrast the two cultures.

Or, choose to simply relax on the island's famous Orient Beach, one and a half miles of gorgeous white sand.

Cadiz, Spain

At today's port, you'll have a rare chance to explore what many considered the gateway to the New World for all the voyages that left here for unknown shores. The port of Cádiz offers a wealth of treasures. On an included tour, you'll follow passageways into elaborate plazas. Stop at the Torre Tavira, once a lookout for merchants, and marvel at the city's Baroque, gold-domed cathedral.
