Fri 10.11 PALMA DE MALLORCA, SPAIN – ALCANADA GOLF CLUB
Mallorca’s masterpiece, created by Robert Trent Jones Jr, is nestled in the heart of a nature reserve and is a symbiosis of landscape and golf course. The journey to the course from the ship, which takes about 35 minutes, will itself ensure many wonderful views over Alcudia Bay.

Here there are some fairly sizeable height differences to contend with and the course requires “all-terrain” players!

From here, you can see most of the course as well as some views of the island and the Atlantic.
