Southampton, England
Southampton is located on the south coast of England 75 miles southwest of London and 31 miles northwest of Portsmouth. The city is a major port at the confluence of the River Test and River Itchen. During the Middle Ages, shipbuilding became an important industry for the town. Henry V's ship HMS Grace Dieu was built in Southampton. Walter Taylor's 18th century block-making process was a major step in the Industrial Revolution. From 1904 to 2004, the Thornycroft shipbuilding yard was a major employer in Southampton, building and repairing ships during the two World Wars. Cunard’s transatlantic liners have traditionally used Southampton as the eastern terminus of their transatlantic crossings.

Southampton's earliest habitation dates back to the stone age. The area survived Roman and Viking invasions, and after the Norman Conquest in 1066, Southampton became the major port of transit between England and Normandy. Southampton Castle was built in the 12th century. By the 13th century Southampton was a leading port, involved in importing French wine in exchange for English wool and fabric. The city is home to the longest surviving stretch of medieval walls in England, and a number of museums such as the Tudor House Museum, the Southampton Maritime Museum, an archaeology museum about the city's heritage located in one of the tower walls, the Medieval Merchant's House and Solent Sky, which focuses on aviation.


13 Nights at Sea


Gibralter, UK
Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean. It has an area of 2.6 square miles and a northern border with the Province of Cádiz in Andalusia, Spain.

Stand on top of the Rock of Gibraltar and you feel as if you were on top of the world. Europe is at your feet. Africa fills one horizon, while the gates to the Mediterranean and the Atlantic are on either side.

If you think that Gibraltar is an impressive sight from the ground or even from the sea, wait until you see it from above! The views from the Cable Car’s Top Station, located 412 m above sea level, are truly spectacular and it will take you only 6 minutes to get to the top.
