Date Port Arrival Departure
 
Aug 31, Friday
Venice, Italy »   11 pm
 
Venice rests three miles off the coast of mainland Italy and is considered one of the world's most enchanting cities. Known as the "Queen of the Adriatic," it actually comprises more than 100 separate islands. Laced together by a string of 400 intricate bridges, Venice is legendary for its labyrinthine network of canals. A whimsical stroll through the city can lead one to a hidden world of ornately decorated piazzas and shops. As you explore colorful marketplaces and busy town squares, marvel at a priceless legacy of Baroque architecture. Admire the richness of St. Mark's Basilica and the lavishness of the Palazzo Ducale. Getting lost in Venice can be a truly delightful experience. The place of dreams, this romantic city will live long in your memory.
Sep 1, Saturday Piran, Slovenia » 8 am 6 pm
 
Sep 2, Sunday
Rovinj, Croatia » 7 am 5 pm
 

Tucked up under the arm of the Adriatic where Croatia meets Italy, Rovinj reflects a cross-section of cultures, not just of neighboring Italy but also of Greece, Austria and the Slavic nations. Empires have been competing over this wooded and strategically located region for centuries, contributing to Croatia’s rich tapestry of history along the way. The resulting complex and vibrant fabric, ever-evolving as time weaves, is yours to discover with your visit. One of the most striking of Rovinj’s buildings is the Church of St. Euphemia, with its bell tower rising above the city. Around every corner seems a grand gesture of architecture or quaint cafe. If you aren’t careful, you may begin to think you are wandering the cobbled lanes of Venice, as Rovinj’s colorful facades and charming piazzas are not far from the once-governing canal city, just two hours away by ferry across the gulf.

 
Sep 3, Monday
Dubrovnik, Croatia » 9 am 6 pm
 
Though it has only recently re-emerged as an independent nation, Croatia is by no means a new country. There were settlements along the Dalmatian Coast before recorded time. When Slavic people migrated here in the 6th century, they converted to Catholicism and adopted the local Latin alphabet. The region eventually became part of the powerful Kingdom of Croatia. Medieval Dubrovnik, formerly the Republic of Ragusa, was one of several walled cities established in the 7th century to guard the coastal approaches. Its fortification was completed in the 13th century and has remained relatively unchanged. The city walls are in excellent condition and today prevent invasion by automobiles. Within the walls, the lovely sleek lines of Venetian-style buildings complement a wealth of ancient stone architecture. Nearby islands feature beautiful beaches as well as intriguing ancient ruins.
 
Sep 4, Tuesday
Corfu, Greece » 8 am 5 pm
 
Shaped like a scythe, the island of Corfu is considered one of the Mediterranean's best-kept secrets. Its lush interior is covered in cypress and olive trees while the main downtown area has elegant Venetian architecture and a serene atmosphere. Strategically important due to its location, this island has managed to maintain its uniqueness despite numerous invasions by outside forces. Today, the culture of Corfu reflects its turbulent past as well as its origins.
 
Sep 5, Wednesday
Zakynthos, Greece » 8 am 5 pm
 

Nazi occupation during World War II. The Great Earthquake of 1953. The earthquake swarm and wildfires of 2006. The idyllic isle of Zakynthos, located in the Ionian Sea, has had its share of not-so-idyllic events. But this “paradise on earth” also has its share of engaging sights and activities, thanks to a warm climate and photogenic scenery. Check out Navagio Beach, a cove on the southwest shore with high cliffs, turquoise waters and beach composed of white pebbles. Tucked into the cliffs around Cape Skinari are the Blue Caves, which get their distinct hue from the sun’s rays reflecting through the blue sea and onto the white stones of the cave walls and floor. The western shore boasts numerous rock formations, while the northern and eastern coasts feature wide, sandy beaches. Above Zakynthos Town is perched a small Venetian castle, from which you can enjoy panoramic views.

 
Sep 6, Thursday
Taormina/Giardini Naxos, Italy » 8 am 6 pm
 
Nature and history have made Sicily a land of striking contrasts. The largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily was for centuries the center of the known world. Its unique geographic position made the island vulnerable to attacks by foreigners, while also making it a meeting place of Mediterranean civilizations, a bridge between the East and West. The picturesque little town of Taormina enjoys a beauty comprised of light, color and sea. Taormina has no middle tones, no grays and no muted shades. Lying on a short terrace of the coast and dripping off the shoulders of the enormous Mount Etna, Taormina embodies the essence of Sicily.
 
Sep 7, Friday
Sorrento, Italy » 7 am 11 pm
 
As your ship approaches the Sorrento Peninsula, delight in craggy cliffs draped with flowing pink blossoms.

Renowned for its serene way of life, this romantic port exudes a special magic. Its dramatic bluffs and surrounding flowered hills bid travelers welcome to a town overflowing with charm and character. It is easy to relax in this languid southern Italian atmosphere.

The sensational Amalfi Coast and the haunting ruins at Pompeii are among the region's highlights.
 
Sep 8, Saturday
Gaeta, Italy » 8 am 6 pm
 
Long a military stronghold, Gaeta hosts fortifications dating to Roman times, has served as a NATO naval base since 1967 and is currently home port of the flagship of the United States’ Sixth Fleet. As formidable and significant as its old castle and naval disposition have been, this small walled city located about an hour south of Rome is delightfully charming with narrow alleyways, steep stone steps, rocky shores, typical Italian architecture and an affinity for food (especially tiella, a crusted savory, vegetable-filled pie). Whether you savor inspiring views or tasty cuisine, you will find yourself coming back for seconds.
