Her inaugural voyage will be a 7 day Mediterranean and Aegean cruise from Rome to Athens with the option to add the subsequent 7 day Athens to Barcelona voyage, forming a 14 day Adriatic and Aegean Medley sailing.

After a short season in the Mediterranean with departures from Barcelona, Rome and Athens, the ship will head to Fort Lauderdale for a series of roundtrip cruises to the Caribbean. This will be followed by several voyages around South America from Buenos Aires, Santiago and Fort Lauderdale, as well as Mexico and the California coast from Los Angeles.
