Visit seven beautiful destinations

A cruise makes it easy to cover more ground and explore the delights of a region, travelling overnight between ports and waking somewhere new almost every morning. The days are yours to decide how you’d like to experience a destination – discover the street food of Palermo in Sicily, or head to the beach. Visit Pompeii, or opt for a day in Sorrento, a jewel of the Amalfi Coast and search out the best gelato.
