Cruise Itinerary
Day 1
Fly UK to New Orleans, USA
Depart from UK to New Orleans, overnight at hotel
Day 2
New Orleans, USA
In New Orleans you will find a flavour of the Old South with a distinct French accent, famed for its filigree wrought-iron work in the French Quarter and Mardi Gras celebrations which herald the beginning of Lent. Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), is the last day of the Carnival season as it always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Shop at the beautiful river walk and take a ride on the street car line dating back to 1835. Visit Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter where the gray spire of St Louis Cathedral towers high in the air. Bourbon Street is where the music never stops and looks much as it did during the 1700s and 1800s with buildings crowding a narrow sidewalk.
Day 3
New Orleans, USA
Embark the Brilliance of the Seas
Day 4
At Sea
Relax and make the most of the myriad of facilities available on board the ship, from fantastic entertainment to delicious and diverse dining options.
Day 5
Cozumel, Mexico
This island is just 12 miles long and situated 20 minutes ferry ride from the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. Cozumel is really a staging post for cruise passengers to visit mainland Mexico with its Mayan ruins at Tulum. Cozumel town is lively with its many bars and myriad of shops. Explore the Xel Ha aquatic park with its subterranean rivers, natural pools and sacred Mayan Lagoon. We found the scuba diving here to be the best in Caribbean. The best beach is located in the Punta Sur Ecological Park.
Day 6
George Town, Grand Cayman
This island remains part of the British Commonwealth and it is famed its Scuba diving and white sandy beaches - in particular 7 Mile Beach close to Georgetown the capital. It is also one of the few nesting grounds of the logger head turtle. One of the best things to do is snorkelling with the Sting Rays – you will not be disappointed. Try visiting Hell - a village in the far corner of the island where you will find a turtle farm. Ships generally anchor off shore here and the island is reached by tender.
Day 7
At Sea
Relax and make the most of the myriad of facilities available on board the ship, from fantastic entertainment to delicious and diverse dining options.
Day 8
Yucatan (Progreso), Mexico
Progreso is a port city on Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. It’s a common stop for cruise ships, which dock at its landmark long pier. An oceanfront promenade, the Malecón, is lined with beaches and thatch-roofed restaurants. The Faro de Puerto Progreso, built in 1893, is an active lighthouse. The city is a gateway to the inland Mayan archaeological sites of Chichén Itzá, Uxmal and Dzibilchaltún.
Day 9
At Sea
Relax and make the most of the myriad of facilities available on board the ship, from fantastic entertainment to delicious and diverse dining options.
Day 10
New Orleans, USA to Memphis, USA
Disembark ship and make your way to the Amtrak train station for your onward rail journey to Memphis, overnight at hotel
Day 11
Memphis, USA
Visit the birthplace of American Soul Music, tour Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley and see where the King of Rock ‘n' Roll lived. You will also be able to see where the biggest names in Rock ‘n' Soul got their careers started, at the famous Sun Studio. Visit the inspiring museums of America Soul Music at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music and Rock ‘n' Soul museum. Entrance tickets to the following: Graceland the home of Elvis Presley, The Graceland Mansion Tour, Automobile Museum, Sincerely Elvis Museum & Elvis After Dark, Rock ‘n' Soul Museum, Stax Museum of American Soul Music, and Sun Studio.
