What You’ll Love…

The Experiences – Cruise through the stunning Greek Islands, Italy and Turkey

Embark upon your cruise in Rome. Home to incredible gilt-lined churches hidden down the most unassuming of streets, priceless works of art by the likes of Michelangelo and Raphael, and world-renowned buildings that have stood for thousands of years, Rome is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to history, art and culture. From the Pantheon to the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain to the Vatican, work your way round the icons of the city, stopping off for an authentic gelato or Italian coffee along the way – not to mention pasta and pizza!

In Greece you’ll discover Olympia’s historical ruins - Acropolis of Mycenae and the Tomb of Atreus en route – and see the birthplace of the Olympic Games and the sanctuary of Olympian Zeus.

Cruise into Athens, the classic capital of Greece, also referred to as the cradle of Western Civilisation and the birthplace of democracy and then move onto the sun-drenched Greek islands.

Lapped by emerald waters, the beautiful Greek islands are exemplary of the Mediterranean lifestyle sought after the world over – and Rhodes is without doubt one of its most coveted destinations. The largest of Greece's Dodecanese islands - which includes the world-famous Kos – Rhodes abounds in pristine beaches, ancient history, vibrant nightlife and rugged beauty.

You’ll also discover the beauty of Mykonos, where white-washed buildings dazzle against a backdrop of turquoise ocean. Get lost down winding streets that’ll take you to the island’s churches and windmills, and explore its famous ‘Little Venice’ area, comprising of houses and cafés built at water level. Then experience the world-famous beauty of Santorini - an island of snow-white buildings, colourful cliffs, sparkling blue water and the world’s most beautiful sunsets.

The final stop on your cruise before disembarking in Rome is bustline Naples – home to authentic mouth-watering cuisine, narrow cobbled streets adorned in clothing draped from washing lines and the famed Mount Vesuvius.

Sleek wooden furnishings and fluid designs decorate light-drenched, open-air spaces while dining and entertainment venues are abundant.
