  • Cruise Itinerary

    Day 1

    Genoa

    GENOA cradled between land and sea, living and working in the port, breathing its past in her palaces, passionately fond of the terraced hills that embrace the city, Genoa has many different faces. A modern metropolis and a severe custodian of artistic heritage, an industrious marketplace that also has century-old parks to relax in. Genoa hides her riches in an historical centre that looks traditionally seaward yet at the same time exhibits a new beauty achieved by restoring the splendour of ages past. Youthfulness springs from the new urban fabric that has restored works of arts and architecture.

    Day 2

    Marseille

    MARSEILLE The second city of France and the capital of the Provence-Costa Azzurra region. Marseille lies on the southeastern coast of France. The strong mistral wind blows away all traces of pollution and thus provides clarity of air so pure that many famous artists have been attracted to the city: Cézanne; Braque; Derain; Dufy and Marquet. Although Marseille is the economic and industrial capital of France, it manages to remain true to its own traditions and culture, reflected in the Marsillian way of life and its numerous museums, theatres and opera houses.

    Day 4

    Barcelona

    Barcelona is the capital of the Catalonia region. It lies along the Mediterranean coast between the mouths of the rivers Besós and Llobregat. In the Northwest a set of hills run parallel to the coast. In the Southwest the old town lies along the port and is divided by the famous “La Rambla”. Today Barcelona is Spain's second biggest city as far as population is concerned and it is the main industrial centre of the country. Barcelona hosts two universities, several museums and libraries and has been a cultural and artistic centre since the Middle Ages.

    Day 5

    Valencia

    VALENCIA the country's third biggest city and although it boasts many great historic, cultural and modern visitor attractions this is one of the least tourist-orientated cities to be found in the whole of the Iberian Peninsula. The outskirts consist of an unimpressive collection of modern, sprawling and industrialised areas but the historic heart of Valencia is very beautiful and still very Spanish, almost untouched by mass tourism. This is the home of paella, one of the most spectacular fiestas in Spain and (reputedly) the Holy Grail from which Jesus drank at the Last Supper. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the City itself and the warm, inviting character of its inhabitants.

    Day 3

    Palma de Mallorca

    Palma belongs to Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, measuring about 75km /47 miles from north to south and 100km/62 miles from east to west. The beautiful scenery, the mild climate and the copious amount of accommodation make the island a major European tourist centre. Any visitor who arrives in Palma by boat or ship discovers a city spread across the curve of a wide bay, with its proud cathedral standing guard like its former days of maritime glory.

    Day 6

    At Sea

    Day 7

    Valletta

    Day 8

    Messina

    MESSINA is a pleasant town located with the best harbour on the Strait of Messina between the Tyrrenian and Ionian Seas, in northeast Sicily on the lower slopes of the Peloritani Mountains. A port city opposite the Italian mainland, Messina has industries producing silks, muslins, linens, and chemicals. As it is only five kilometres from the mainland, it is a common port for ferries and a frequent stop on Mediterranean trade routes.

    Day 9

    Civitavecchia

    Civitavecchia is the port about one hour from the capital of Italy, Rome means history. There are layers of the stuff - Etruscan tombs, republican meeting rooms, imperial temples, early Christian churches, medieval bell towers, renaissance palaces and baroque basilicas. In this city a phenomenal concentration of history, legend and monuments coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life. So get your cultural fill but be sure to leave time for more hedonistic concerns: eat till you can eat no more and get drunk on architecture and sunshine.

    Day 10

    Livorno

    Livorno, sometimes in English Leghorn, is a port city on the Tryrrhenian Sea on the western edge of Tuscany, Italy. It is the capital of the Province of Livorno and the third-largest port on the western coast of Italy. It was founded on a former auxiliary Pisan port between 1576 and the early 17th century, on the orders of the Grand Duke Cosimo I who made it Tuscany's main outlet to the sea after the Pisan port was filled in. Originally constructed to a pentagonal design and with a still visible orthogonal street system, the town grew in the 19th century; it suffered serious damage during the last War and now has a modern appearance.

    Day 11

    Genoa

    GENOA cradled between land and sea, living and working in the port, breathing its past in her palaces, passionately fond of the terraced hills that embrace the city, Genoa has many different faces. A modern metropolis and a severe custodian of artistic heritage, an industrious marketplace that also has century-old parks to relax in. Genoa hides her riches in an historical centre that looks traditionally seaward yet at the same time exhibits a new beauty achieved by restoring the splendour of ages past. Youthfulness springs from the new urban fabric that has restored works of arts and architecture.

  • MSC Sinfonia

    Given some of the cruise leviathans currently plying the oceans, MSC Sinfonia is not a large ship; yet her 9 passengers decks and 250 metre length accommodate an awful lot of comfort and quality for her guests. More important than sheer scale is good design and MSC Sinfonia manages to provide many different and sympathetic moods throughout her public spaces. If you’re looking for relaxation, then make your way to Le Terme where a cleansing sauna and soothing massage await. Or, for something more active, the same facility on Debussy deck boasts a fully equipped gym too. And, whilst you’re away, why not perfect that golf swing with a state-of-the-art Virtual Golf Simulator that’s perfect for beginners and seasoned professionals too. But, if this is all too serious for you, why not enjoy a spot of mini-golf or traditional deck games – a great way to get all the family involved and meet new friends! Whether you’re cruising in the Med’ or South Africa the sea air tends to stimulate the appetite and therefore, aside from the fine cuisine that you’ll find in the restaurants, you’ll find plenty to keep body and soul together in the plush Café Le Baroque and from the bright, modern La Terrazza Buffet. Of course there are plenty of excellent bars whilst the Irish Pub, Shelagh’s House, will make British cruisers feel right at home!
