Romance is still attached to sea travel: cruising the world’s oceans in luxury and sailing to far-flung destinations as the first explorers did hundreds of years ago. Some cities are seen at their best by ship, gradually revealing themselves as it sails closer – Malta, Sydney and San Francisco to name a few.
The Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co. and, today P&O Cruises, have been taking people all over the world since 1837.
