ETERNALLY ENCHANTING ROME
Rome has something special to offer, no matter your interests or tastes.
Whether you daydream about fighting the gladiators in the Coliseum, debating with the senators in the Forum, tossing a coin in the fabled Trevi Fountain, or being awestruck by the magnificence of St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s masterpieces, Rome seems to live up to its sobriquet as the Eternal City.

SWEET, SUNNY SORRENTO
With its many pedestrian-only streets, Sorrento is a lovely city to explore on foot, but if you really want to see Sorrento, you’re going to have to travel vertically since most of the town is set up on the cliffs. To get to the top, you can hop on a minibus, take the lift, or go on a short but steep hike.
If you love to eat, you’ll find the dining experience here second to none. Lemon is the star in Sorrento’s cuisine; it’s in everything: risotto, olive oil, gelato, and of course, limoncello.
The isle of Capri, the playground of the rich and famous, is looking out from Sorrento, in the Gulf of Naples. Well known for its sparkling Blue Grotto, Capri is easily and quickly reached.

RICH IN HISTORY & CULTURE
Syracuse was once one of the largest and most important cities in Western Civilization, and its long history and strong culture means there’s still a lot to see and do.
Classic sights like the Ortygia, Neapolis, and the Basilica of Santa Lucia are always worth a visit, and don’t forget to take in a puppet theatre show (Opera dei Pupi), which happens to be a traditional form of Sicilian entertainment.
The stunning Fonte Aretusa was once the source of the city’s drinking water and now the pond and surrounding area is a scenic spot. Don’t forget to grab a slice of Sicilian pizza and a world-famous cannoli to take along as you stroll.

Day at sea
You will find that a day aboard is a day with no time to get bored. Pool parties, games, contests, workshops and seminars are just the begging of everything that you and your partner will enjoy. Or, if you want something quieter, you can always spend a relaxing day at the spa, shopping, or making new friends at our onboard bars and cafes. Enjoy!

GEM OF THE AEGEAN
It’s been said the sunset from Oja, on the island of Santorini, is the most beautiful in the world. But you don’t have to wait until dusk to see your share of postcard-worthy views, Santorini is stunning any time of day.
The capital, Fira, clings to the rim of the caldera, 900 feet above the sea. Take the cable car, or if you’re looking for a more authentic experience, giddy up on a donkey to climb the 588 zigzagging steps to the top.
You and your partner can also drive by black, white, and red volcanic beaches and head south to the 3,500-year-old Minoan town, Akrotiri. Often called Greece’s answer to Pompeii, the well-preserved ruins provide a glimpse into Santorini’s storied –and explosive– past.

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
EPHESUS, AN AGE-OLD CIVILIZATION
Sure, we could chat about the resort town of Kusadasi and its beaches and restaurants, or nearby places like Dilek Peninsula National Park, but let’s talk Turkey: The star attraction in this neck of the woods is Ephesus. Once the second largest city in the Roman Empire, eclipsed only by Rome, here are just a few of the incredible sights just waiting to be gobbled up!
There’s the Library of Celsus, still magnificent almost 2,000 years later, and the 24,000-capacity Great Theatre, where St. Paul used to preach. Stretching from this jaw-dropping amphitheater to the harbor is the marble-made Arcadian Street. Stroll past the marketplaces, colonnades, and fields of wild fennel, and into bath complexes that once offered piped-in hot water and a sauna.
Surrounding Ephesus, the sites are equally spellbinding. Explore the ruins of the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; the Basilica of St. John, which stands over the believed burial site of John the Apostle; and the House of Virgin Mary, where Mary is supposed to have spent her last days.

Mykonos, GreeceGIBRALTAR, UNITED KINGDOM
KNOWN AS THE “IBIZA OF GREECE”
Mykonos looks like a scene from a postcard: whiter-than-white houses with brilliant blue shutters, vibrant bougainvillea, and a beautiful blue harbor drenched in warm sunlight. But beneath the idyllic scenery, Mykonos is vibrant and cosmopolitan, with a penchant for all-night parties and hedonistic good times.
As soon as the sun goes down, it’s time to let loose. Known as “the Ibiza of Greece”, Mykonos has a serious party scene that’s not for the faint of heart.

Athens (Piraeus), Greece
THE CRADLE OF EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION
You could spend a lifetime in Europe’s oldest city and still not see everything it has to offer. Settled over 3,500 years ago, Athens is like a mythological crossroads of the past and present, where modern buildings share the skyline with spectacular ruins like the Parthenon.
Make your way to Vasilissis Amalias Street for the archaeological line-up in the heart of the ancient city, including the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Ancient Agora, Arch of Hadrian, and of course, the Acropolis.
Neighborhoods like Pangrati, Exarhia, and Petralona feature fantastic taverns where you can rub elbows with the locals while dining on the sidewalk well into the wee hours of the night.
