Your Itinerary

Barcelona

Barcelona Wed 15 Sep 2021

Barcelona

Barcelona’s stunning blend of intriguing architecture, irrepressible culture, exquisite food and inviting beaches means that it is truly a destination that has something for everyone.

Saplaya Port, Valencia

Valencia Thu 16 Sep 2021

Saplaya Port, Valencia

Known as the gateway to the Mediterranean, Valencia’s locals say their coastal home receives more sun than any other Spanish city.

At Sea Fri 17 Sep 2021

Catalan Bay, Gibraltar

Gibraltar Sat 18 Sep 2021

Catalan Bay, Gibraltar

A British Overseas Territory since 1713, Gibraltar is a pleasant blend of familiar and unique. While the currency and language are the same as back home, this destination has its own character...

Malaga, Spain

Malaga Sun 19 Sep 2021

Malaga, Spain

The southern Spanish city of Malaga has a lot more to offer than a sunny Mediterranean climate. The city where artist Pablo Picasso was born is now regarded as Andalusia’s cultural capital.

Cartagena, Spain Mon 20 Sep 2021

There are more than two millennia of history to embrace in this port city in Spain's southeastern Murcia region. While Cartagena is famously home to the second-largest Roman amphitheater on the Iberian Peninsula, the city is much more than just spectacular ancient ruins. In addition to Cartagena’s architecture—along with that amphitheater, there are striking Art Nouveau buildings, neoclassical churches and ultramodern edifices throughout the city—you’ll find many opportunities to shop for local and regional artisan wares. In the city, investigate the restored medieval fortress looking out on the bay from the city’s highest point. Or take a short trip by car or bus to the historic Agrupa Vicenta Mines, the remarkable palm forest at Elche and the holy city of Caravaca. And the food of sunny Murcia! Friendly tapas bars with breezy terraces invite lingering over drinks, coffee or snacks. The local restaurants offer more than typical Spanish tapas on the menu—michirones (a spicy Murcian bean stew) and local spins on paella are widely available and worth a try. Grilled octopus, fried calamari, mussels and the freshest fish are some of the tasty benefits of the city’s perch beside the sea.

Mallorca coastline

Palma de Mallorca Tue 21 Sep 2021

Mallorca coastline

An expansive marina, a city full of history and golden beaches with cerulean waters characterise the welcoming capital of the Balearic Islands archipelago.

Barcelona

Barcelona Wed 22 Sep 2021

Barcelona

Barcelona’s stunning blend of intriguing architecture, irrepressible culture, exquisite food and inviting beaches means that it is truly a destination that has something for everyone.

Monte Carlo Thu 23 Sep 2021

Nothing more than a tiny Principality, Monaco steals much more of the international limelight than its size decently permits. But it's the Grand Casino, of course, where you must peer into the enchanting Salon Rose to see its naked nymph-clad ceiling. It's also the palace and the cathedral, the Rock of Monaco and the harbor, packed to the gills with million-dollar motor yachts—and those are just the modest one

Florence, Italy

Livorno (Florence) Fri 24 Sep 2021

Florence, Italy

Formerly a small fishing village on the western coast of Tuscany, Livorno was reinvented as an ideal Renaissance city at the hands of the sixteenth century House of Medici.

At Sea Sat 25 Sep 2021

La Goulette

La Goulette Sun 26 Sep 2021

La Goulette

Stroll Tunis' spirited medina where close-packed souks offer silver, perfumes, spices, carpets and other treasures at fire sale prices. Sharpen your haggling skills here—it's anticipated! At the edge of the Sahara, the Phoenician city at Carthage now lies in windswept ruins, but once was the glorious rival of Rome.

Mondello white sand beach, Palermo

Palermo, Sicily Mon 27 Sep 2021

Mondello white sand beach, Palermo

The balmy Mediterranean island of Sicily has been shaped by a long and complex history. Its capital, Palermo, has been fought over, and inhabited by, the Carthaginians, Romans, Saracens, Normans and Neapolitans.

Naples, Italy

Naples (Pompeii) Tue 28 Sep 2021

Naples, Italy

Rising behind the wide curve of its bay with brooding Mount Vesuvius and the deep blue sea as a backdrop, Naples, Italy enjoys a magnificent natural setting. It is the third-largest city in Italy after Rome and Milan, and arguably the most colorful and seductive of them all: Splendor and squalor live side by side in 21st-century Naples, and the mix is intoxicating. Cruise to Naples, home to world-class museums and attractions. Naples has something for everyone - superb restaurants, eclectic shopping, a thriving contemporary art scene and an edgy and vibrant street life. But once you’ve had enough of the pounding traffic and jostling crowds while sightseeing in Naples, there are endless opportunities for exploration further afield. The celebrated Roman ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, both victims of Vesuvius’ devastating 79 C.E. eruption, lie just south of the city. Explore Naples' history or take a short ride over to the island of Capri on a Naples shore excursion. The delightful town of Sorrento and the magnificent scenery of the Amalfi Coast are also within easy reach, and the dolce vita glamour of Capri—not to mention the healing thermal waters of Ischia—are a short hydrofoil hop from the mainland. Naples cruises offer a perfect mix of cultural and natural attractions.

Cruises to Rome, Italy

Civitavecchia (Rome) Wed 29 Sep 2021

Cruises to Rome, Italy

When you embark on a cruise to Rome with Holland America Line you experience its bustling modernism along with its rich history. You can walk in the footsteps of emperors, have coffee in Renaissance piazzas and see contemporary art all in one afternoon. Your sightseeing time in Rome begins at the nearby port of Civitavecchia, a seaside town with roots that stretch back to the Etruscan era. Take note of the Forte Michelangelo (both Bramante and Michelangelo had a hand in its design), and the lungomare, a lively stretch along the sea with beach clubs, bars and restaurants. Once in the Eternal City you can fill your day with museums, churches, archaeological sites, traditional trattorias, artisan shops and, of course, gelato. The Colosseum and the Vatican Museums are Rome's superstar attractions, but there are plenty of quieter gems to explore. For food lovers there are the markets in Campo de' Fiori or the slightly farther flung Testaccio. The hip neighborhood of Monti, next to the Colosseum, has a vibrant piazza scene and boutique shopping, while the Villa Borghese offers a green oasis with a view towards Saint Peter’s Basilica and the masterpiece-filled Galleria Borghese. Although Rome might not have been built in one day, you'll certainly be able to see its highlights on our Rome cruises along with the top things to do there in 24 hours.
