Relaxation beckons with so many choices on board you will wonder how time passes so quickly. Choose one of the daily activities including a class in Scenic Epicure, join an entertaining discussion in the Theatre, or make time for your own fitness regime.

Day 5 - La Paz (Mexico)

La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur, is known for its seafront Malecon promenade with beaches, parks and art by Mexican and international artists. In the city centre, perhaps visit the 19th-century Nuestra Senora de La Paz Cathedral or the Whale Museum which has displays on the area's gray whales.

Day 6 - Isla Cerralvo

Isla Cerralvo is currently known as Isla Jacques Cousteau because of a name change that took place during late 2009. It has been named after the renowned Jacques Cousteau, who was an oceanographer from France that ran a number of underwater expeditions around the island as well as other nearby surrounding areas.

Day 7 - Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is a resort town on Mexico's Pacific coast, known for its beaches, water sports and where Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor descended on Banderas Bay to film John Huston's The Night of the Iguana. Its cobblestone centre is home to the ornate Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe church, boutique shops and a range of restaurants and bars for you to enjoy.

Day 8 - At Sea

Enjoy a relaxed day at sea on board Scenic Eclipse. There is ample time to rejuvenate. Choose a class in one of the fitness spaces or try one of the therapy lounges in the Spa Sanctuary.

Acapulco, a beach resort town on Mexico's Pacific coast, is set on a large bay backed by the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains. You may take the time to watch the professional divers that plunge 40m into a small ocean cove at the La Quebrada cliff each day and night or stroll the old colonial quarter of town.

Day 10 - At Sea

Relaxation and rediscovery are yours to enjoy.  Take a cooking or tasting class in Scenic Epicure or a yoga or pilates class in the studio.

Day 11 - Puerto Quetzal (Guatemala)

Drive into the mountains to beautiful old Antigua, once the country's colonial capital, and discover its lovely bougainvillea-draped buildings and breath taking views of emerald volcanoes. Travel to the famed Lake Atitlan and step back in time as you encounter the indigenous people in all of their finery still living along the lakeshore.

Day 12 - Acajutla (El Salavador)

The nearby city of Leon has a wonderful cathedral, monuments and colonial buildings as well as the ruins of Leon Viejo, one of the oldest Spanish settlements in the Americas.

Day 14 - Bahia Culebra - Marina Papagayo

One of Bahia Culebra's main features is the excellent quality of its waters that house a valuable natural ecosystem.
