    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Monday, June 27, 2022 Nice, France Embark 6:00 PM
    View of Nice, France

    Nice is situated on the SE coast of France on the French Riviera, and is the second-largest French city on the Mediterranean coast. Monaco lies 13km to the east. Nice itself is an attraction: the rich blue-green sea, diverse shopping, splendid dining and lovely art-deco façades. But there are several spots that a tourist simply must see, such as the Cours Saleya Flower Market, the Matisse Museum, ancient Roman ruins, the Russian Cathedral and more.

    2 Tuesday, June 28, 2022 Calvi, France 12:00 PM 6:30 PM
    View of Calvi, France

    Seen from the water, Calvi, on the island of Corsica off the southern shores of France, is a beautiful spectacle with its three immense citadel bastions topped with ochre buildings that are sharply defined against a hazy backdrop of mountains. A hangout for European glitterati in the 1950s, the town these days is an interesting resort, in that its glamorous marina, souvenir shops and fussy boutiques contrast with the down-to-earth villages of its rural hinterland. Fascinatingly, Christopher Columbus supposedly came from Calvi, and there is a large statue at the foot of the citadel that commemorates this legend. Read more about Calvi, France

    3 Wednesday, June 29, 2022 Porto Santo Stefano, Italy 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Porto Santo Stefano, Italy

    Porto Santo Stefano is a seaport town on the west coast of Tuscani, Italy. It lies 65 km NW of the major cruise port Civitavecchia, two hours from Rome. The port is on the north side of a 10 km wide ‘island’, joined to the Italian mainland by three narrow 5 km sandbars, one of which has an entry-exit road. Its twin town Porto Ercole lies on the east coast of the ‘island.’ Between the two sandbars are two lagoons. Read more about Porto Santo Stefano, Italy

    Amalfi is a town in the region of Campania, Italy, on the Gulf of Salerno, 40 km SE of Naples. It lies at the mouth of a deep ravine at the foot of Monte Cerreto, surrounded by dramatic cliffs and coastal scenery. Take a drive along the coast, past precipices defying gravity, green terraces of grapevines and groves of lemon and olive trees sweeping down slopes to clear blue water below, and you are presented with some of the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery in the world. Be adventurous and examine every nook and cranny while walking the streets and you'll be amazed at what you may find. Read more about Amalfi, Italy

Settled on a hill, the town - accessible via an aerial tramway - dominates two sweeping bays, and on the southern side the top of Mount Etna can be seen. While it is unashamedly touristy and has a main street lined with high-end designer shops, the town remains a striking location with gorgeous medieval churches, a stunning Greek theatre, and sweeping views. It seems to have a magical atmosphere that has attracted visitors from all over the world for many years. Read more about Taormina, Italy

The city is surrounded by several coastal townlets and the inland townlets of Exmilia and perhaps, best known, the archaeological site of the ancient city just 5km to the SW.

    13 Saturday, July 9, 2022 Limnos, Greece 7:00 AM 12:30 PM
    View of Limnos, Greece

    Limnos (Lemnos) is an island of Greece in the northern part of the Aegean Sea, lying closer to mainland Turkey than to Greece. The island’s history of conflict is very long: from pre-history, stone, bronze and iron ages; to Greek, Persian, Roman, Venetian, and Turkish rule. During WW I the island's harbour at Moudros was used by the Allies during early 1915 in support of the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign to try to capture the Dardanelles Straits, some 80 km to the ENE. The Portianos Military Cemetery, West Moudros, is the final resting place for many of the ANZACS. Read more about Limnos, Greece

    View of Dardanelles, Turkey

    The Dardanelles is a narrow strait in NW Turkey, connecting the Aegean Sea to the Sea of Marmara. Like the Bosphorus, it separates Europe and the mainland of Asia. Of great strategic importance, it was crossed by Alexander the Great in 334 BC, was part of the Byzantine Empire until the 14th century, and was the scene of an Allied campaign in WWI. Today, the Gallipoli battlefields are silent, preserved as a national historic park strewn with marble and bronze monuments, among the most emotionally touching places in Turkey.

    14 Sunday, July 10, 2022 Istanbul, Turkey 7:00 AM Disembark
    View of Istanbul, Turkey

    Istanbul (Byzantium from 660 BC, Constantinople from 330 CE, and Istanbul since 1930) is the largest city in Turkey and the fifth largest city proper in the world. It has dominated the Straits of Bosphorus, in the NW of the country, for 25 centuries, and as Constantinople was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. It was a metropolis of stunning splendour when the great capitals of Europe were mere villages and is the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents. The influence of Asia and Europe, the religion of Christians and Muslims, and the culture of Turks, Persians and Asians, have all found their way into the daily life of this bustling metropolis.
