Board the Mardi Gras in Southampton, England, and get ready to be wowed by the latest and greatest in the Carnival fleet. Launching in 2020, this New Orleans-inspired ship will debut amazing features such as the first roller coaster at sea, BOLT™, and 6 themed “neighborhoods.” With a comedy club in Grand Central, a jazz club in the French Quarter and a pool and hangout areas in Summer Landing — and so much more — you’ll find something fun to suit everyone in the family!
Your first stop is the Canary Islands archipelago, volcanic in origin and captivating with out-of-this-world landscapes. Start with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, where you can explore Vegueta (old town), home to the Canarian Museum and Casa de Colon (the Christopher Columbus House). Continue to Tenerife, the archipelago’s largest and most populous island, and site of the tallest mountain in Spain, Pico del Teide.
Leave the Canary Islands and continue to Portugal. Hike footpaths through the hills of Madeira’s port, Funchal, and take in sweeping views of the sea and forests when you reach the top. You’ll enjoy another day at sea before arriving in Ponta Delgada, the capital of the Azores. While there, why not visit the 16th-century Church of St. Sebastian and Museu Carlos Machado?
Then, you’ll have 5 full days at sea as you sail to New York, where you can do any onboard activities you haven’t experienced yet. Why not start at The Ultimate Playground zone? There, you’ll find WaterWorks, an aqua park featuring the Twister Waterslide and PowerDrencher, a massive bucket of water ready to soak passengers! Or, team up to play basketball and mini-golf at the SportsSquare. Once you reach New York, you’ll disembark ready to plan your next spectacular cruise!
What we love:
• Strap into the motorcycle-like seat on the sea coaster and get ready for an adrenaline rush like no other as BOLT takes you on an open-air, top-deck course high above the water (rides are at an additional cost). Hold on for that hair-raising high-speed funnel turn!
• A staple of Canarian cuisine is papas arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes), typically served with a tangy mojo picon sauce for dipping. Meals are often paired with locally sourced wines, including the volcanic Malvasia, a sweet white wine made from grapes grown in volcanic soil.
• You can maximize your enjoyment on dry land too! Just download the DreamTrips app to access DreamTrips Local — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select port-city spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!
