Named after the Goddess of Wisdom, Athens is a superb place to visit even if you are just passing by – and a cruise that stops there will definitely add a lot to your experience as a traveler.

Barcelona is the kind of place where you stop to have fun. There’s just nothing the Spanish cannot do excellently. Amazing foods, great parties, stunning beaches, beautiful ladies, handsome men and a general atmosphere of “feeling good” that will infuse every single inch of your body. And once you get acquainted with the Barcelonan culture and spirit, you are bound to return and “get more” of this fantastic city.
