    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Saturday, October 8, 2022 Venice, Italy Embark 9:00 PM
    View of Venice, Italy

    Located at the head of the Adriatic Sea between the mouths of the Piave and Po Rivers, an intricate web of 118 tiny islands and canals make up the enchanting city of Venice in Italy. Considered to be an extremely beautiful and romantic destination, it is not surprising that Venice has played an important role in the history of symphonic and operatic music. One must take a gondola ride along some of the over 150 canals, including the Grand Canal. Be amazed at the numerous bridges – such as the Rialto bridge – and absorb the glorious renaissance architecture with its panorama of superbly detailed facades. Read more about Venice, Italy

    3 Monday, October 10, 2022 Dubrovnik, Croatia 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Dubrovnik, Croatia

    Dubrovnik, a Croatian city on the Adriatic Sea coast, is a prominent tourist destination. The city joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1979. An outstanding feature of the Old Town of Dubrovnik is its intact city walls that run uninterrupted for 1,940m encircling the city. This complex structure, one of the most beautiful and strongest fort systems in the Mediterranean, consists of a series of forts, bastions, towers and detached forts, originally used to protect the vulnerable city.

    4 Tuesday, October 11, 2022 Sarande, Albania 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Sarande, Albania

    Sarandë, the capital of the District of Sarand, Albania, is situated on the Ionian Sea coast in the Mediterranean. Daily ferryboats link with the nearby Greek island of Corfu (visible to the SW), and the delightful warm weather has made tourism its major economic resource. While the vast majority of the population is Albanian, there are also many Greeks. With a backdrop of high mountains, this small attractive town with its main promenade, hotels, and renowned restaurants, acts as a gateway to the Albanian Riviera. Read more about Sarande, Albania

    5 Wednesday, October 12, 2022 Katakolon, Greece 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Katakolon, Greece

    The scenic seaside Greek town of Katakolon, with a population around 3,000, is your typical small-town cruise port with delightful cafes along the waterfront, shops that sell T-shirts, hats and jewellery, and a small beach that draws swimmers and sandcastle-builders. But that's not why ships make the town a destination. They arrive because Katakolon serves as the cruise gateway to ancient Olympia, just 40 km away, the birthplace of the Olympic Games. More than 3 million people annually visit the site and its companion facility, the Archaeological Museum of Olympia, a treasure trove of pieced-together sculptures and statues that once adorned the ancient structures.

    Naples is an historic city over 2,500 years old, sitting on the west coast of southern Italy by the Gulf of Naples. Located halfway between two volcanic areas, Mount Vesuvius and Camp Flegrei and with numerous tours and cruise excursions available at the port, one may be inclined to miss out on what Naples itself has to offer. It has some of the world's best opera houses and theatres, and is often called an open-air museum because of its many historic statues and monuments. View finds from Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in A.D. Read more about Naples, Italy

    8 Saturday, October 15, 2022 Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy 7:00 AM 9:00 PM
    View of Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

    Rome, the capital, and largest city of Italy, is full of unending possibilities. It can be reached from the port of Civitavecchia in approximately ninety minutes either by train or coach. Rome greets visitors with a multitude of faces, such as the Ancient City with ruins like: the Colosseum; the seven hills; the Roman Forum; and the Sacred Way, the path used for triumphal processions. There is Renaissance Rome, full of winding streets and sun-dappled piazzas, and the Vatican, home to the Pope. Read more about Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is essentially Baroque in style, with elements of Mannerist, Neo-Classical and Modern architecture.

    12 Wednesday, October 19, 2022 Corfu, Greece 7:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Corfu, Greece

    Corfu Island, located just off the west coast of Greece, boasts some of the most stunning scenery in the Greek Isles. With its impressive landscapes, rich vegetation, long golden beaches, the elegant capital Corfu Town, and many traditional villages, it is not surprising that this island receives many visitors each year. The capital is possibly most impressive, due to the Venetian, French and English civilisations that are remembered for the architectural elements they have left behind. Be sure to visit the Achillion Palace with its picturesque gardens overlooking Corfu Town, and at least one of the many Greek churches and monasteries. Read more about Corfu, Greece

    13 Thursday, October 20, 2022 Kotor, Montenegro 7:00 AM 6:00 PM
