Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain
Las Palmas is the capital, together with Santa Cruz, and the most populous city in the Canary Islands. It enjoys a subtropical climate, with mild to warm temperatures predominating throughout the year. The Port of Las Palmas is not only the largest port of the Canary Islands, but also the most important port in the Mid-Atlantic, with the most traffic at the crossroads between Europe, Africa and America. It is one of the main ports of Spain. The city has great beaches, including Las Canteras, Las Alcaravaneras, la Laja, and Confital.

The city was founded in 1478 by Juan Rejón, head of the invading Castilian army, before engaging in war with the local aboriginal people of the Canary Islands, known as Guanches. In 1492, Christopher Columbus anchored in the Port of Las Palmas, spending time on the island before sailing to America, and stopped there again on the way back to Spain. Today, a museum is named after him - Casa Colón - in the Vegueta area of the city.

The historic district of Vegueta has regained great popularity as the meeting place of choice for young people on weekends, who fill its bars and discos. In the port area there are also many bars and nightclubs, particularly in the vicinity of Santa Catalina. During the Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, usually between January and February, you can enjoy popular Mogollon (dances) and galas of Franco and the drag queen.


14 Nights At Sea


Bridgetown, Barbados
On the wild and rugged east coast of Barbados, the isolated beaches are the colour of sunrise, the red sands having blown all the way across the Atlantic from the Sahara. The eastern most island of the Windwards, and indeed, of the entire Caribbean, reaches out to Africa and the Old World, as if not quite part of the New. Bridgetown, Barbados is an interesting town full of contrasts. George Washington actually slept here! Trafalgar Square reminds you that the laid back, rum-and-fun-loving island’s British-influenced heritage includes revered traditions like cricket and high tea.
