Day 1 - Barcelona, Spain
A top European center for art, architecture, design and cuisine, this stylish city has its own language and culture. The soul of old Barcelona is its Gothic Quarter; outside the medieval district, discover iconic landmarks and more. Vying for your attention in Catalonia's visually stunning capital are the magnificent medieval buildings of the lively Gothic quarter and the exotic creations of architect Antoni Gaudi - the Sagrada Familia Temple and Parc Güell, to name just a few.
Day 2 - Fun Day at Sea!
An 'at sea' day is your chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, including doing nothing at all. Relax in the Spa, take in a show at the theatre, or experience any of the incredible dining venues. There's so much to do the difficulty will be choosing what to do next! Whether you seek an adrenaline rush or total tranquility, our ships have it all. Melt away land-based stress with a spa massage, build a scrapbook of memories or simply relax poolside.
Day 3 - Cagliari, Sardinia
Cagliari, the capital of the Italian island of Sardinia, is situated high upon hills that offer a panoramic view of the Golfo degli Angeli — the Gulf of Angels. Walk along Poetto beach, with its soft sand and clear water, or visit the urban park of Molentargius with its flamingos, wetlands and magnificent birds. Cruise to Sardinia, Italy to peruse the local architectural sites: See Bastione di Saint Remy with its breathtaking terrace and Torre dell'Elefante, a medieval tower with a 360-degree view of the city. And don't forget to take a meditative stroll through the lavish interior of the 13th-century Cagliari Cathedral.
Day 4 - Naples, Italy
One of Europe's oldest cities, Naples is vibrant and filled with rich artistic and architectural heritage. Nearby sights include the ruins of ancient Pompeii uncovers, the idyllic resort isle of Capri, and the jewel-like towns that dot the Amalfi Coast. You're spoiled for choice in the city that invented the pizza. Embark on a trip to Mt. Vesuvius for mind-blowing views before descending to Pompeii. Board a boat for Capri, or a scenic day trip to Positano and Sorrento down the stunning Amalfi coast.
Day 5 - Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy
Hidden piazzas, opulent baroque churches, classical ruins at every turn. The best of Italian fashion. Countless art galleries, gardens and palaces. If ever there was a place to return to and delve deeper, it's Rome. From the monuments of the ancient empire to the pursuit of la dolce vita, the Eternal City is an unrivaled open-air museum and a lively modern metropolis. The tiny enclave of Vatican City is home to sacred sites and priceless art.
Day 6 - Genoa, Italy
The birthplace of Christopher Columbus, Genoa is a medieval city that's made a splash in the modern world. Stumble upon architectural gems like the San Lorenzo Cathedral, with its black-and-white striped facade, and monumental squares like Piazza de Ferrari. The harborside aquarium is the second-largest in Europe — head there to see a bastion of biodiversity, complete with sharks, dolphins and penguins. The Lanterna is the city's main lighthouse, and the adjacent Museum will get you familiar with the history of the port and city. Walk among the colorful houses and cobbled streets, and poke your head into one of the excellent restaurants there for a Genoese specialty dish like pansotti, a ravioli-like pasta served with walnut sauce.
Day 7 - Marseilles, France
A strategic transit point for goods, but also a meeting place for cultures: you'll find vibrant evidence of these in the mosaic of its people.
Marseille is one of the most visited cities in France. With many museums and galleries, along with ancient buildings of historical interest. Along the coast, cycling tracks veer around sunny coves and sandy beaches. France's oldest city is one of its most dynamic, with a melting pot culture and vibrant arts scene. The soul of the city is its Vieux Port, the working waterfront. Marseille is also a gateway port to the scenic villages and coastal areas of Provence.
Day 8 - Barcelona, Spain
Barcelona is home to one of the biggest and best gay scenes in the world. Most of Barcelona’s gay bars are spread out across the Eixample district – also known as the “Gaixample” district. You’ll find intimate, classy gay bars, hedonistic nightclubs, and action-packed cruise clubs. Barcelona also boasts year-round sunshine and a long strip of beaches along the coastline. Not least the gay-popular beaches, including Nova Icaria, San Sebastià & Barceloneta, and the Mar Bella nudist beach.
