Alexander von Humboldt II:
Dubrovnik (HR) - Palma de Mallorca (ES)

21 October - 03 November 2015

Leave the city listed on the world heritage site list. Head to a harbour where Christopher Columbus has been too. Step in his footsteps and discover the waters surrounding you. Sail the seas and give your senses a jolt. Hear the gulls sing when you enter the wide open spaces and smell the freedom you have sailing this magnificent ship. Set course to a new chapter in your life! Open to all ages, minimum age 14 years.

Ports

Dubrovnik, the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic Sea’ deserves its name. It’s an old port town and one of the best-preserved medieval walled cities in the world. White houses with red roofs line the tightly packed streets of the old city, and if you discover the town on foot you will find churches, monasteries, the old fortress and several renaissance era buildings. Enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle by spending an afternoon at the beach, followed by a fine meal at a local restaurant.

Palma de Mallorca, capital of the Balearic Islands, was first settled by the Romans. Evidence of over two thousand years of history can still be seen all over town. Visit the unique Bellver Castle, The Royal Palace of La Almundaina, and Palma’s silk exchange as examples of the town’s architecture. Palma de Mallorca is a festive town with plenty to see and do. Over 20 million tourists visit the city each year, but there are plenty of opportunities to escape the masses and explore for yourself.

    Sailing from Maurituis to Australia

    – by Hannah Hurford

    When I found out that you could still sail traditional ships I remember thinking: a) this is probably a joke, and b) why have I not done it yet? I had experience sailing on yachts and dinghies but with an interest in naval …
