Dubrovnik is not known as The Pearl of the Adriatic for nothing. It is hard not to feel a sense of awe as you peer over the Old City, now a Unesco World Heritage Site. Its seductive pathways, surrounded by azure waters, enamour hundreds of cruise passengers every day. Beware, as that is the beginning of a life-long love affair for most tourists. You’ll never fall out of love with this one.

Lanzarote, the Canary Islands
Lanzarote combines the best of both worlds. Along with being a flourishing port – Arrecife, the capital, is known for the abundance of reefs and islets along the coast – it is also a volcanic wonderland. The Spanish island, located off the coast of Africa, offers visitors the chance to go caving inside lava tubes, explore entire houses carved out of volcanic material and walk in national parks that boast active volcanoes, fumaroles and craters. The kaleidoscopic volcanic sand – ochre, burnt orange and russet brown all at once – is perhaps the most fascinating feature of the land. Seen here is the volcanic desert landscape of the Timanfaya National Park.
A cruise ship pulls into this fairy-tale village, located at the inner end of the Nordfjord. One of the most picturesque and dramatic cruise ports in the world, Olden has towering cliffs and handsome glaciers on one side and idyllic landscapes laden with flowers on the other. It is also the gateway to the Jostedal Glacier, the largest on the European mainland. There is something for everyone in Olden – picnics by gurgling waterfalls, treks on glaciers and scenic countryside walks. Make sure you’re on the deck when your ship pulls into Olden – it’s a scene you will never forget.
Gondolas bob on calm waters at midnight as the moon casts a magical glow on the proceedings in Venice, Italy. With more than 700 cruise ships sailing through Venice every year, it is one of the busiest commercial ports in Europe. Yet, it is also a haven for dreamers – cobblestone streets connected by storybook bridges and canals punctuated by restaurants and cafés dripping with flowers. However, it is also one of the most crowded cities in the world – every year tens of thousands of tourists make their way to Venice to be charmed by the gondoliers.
