Ports of Call
Ajaccio, Corsica, France - Corsica is an island of rocky outcroppings and sandy beaches, with secret trails that lead inland over fields and through lazy villages. In Ajaccio, visit Napoleon Bonaparte's house, birthplace of Corsica's famous son. Buy a wedge of tangy cheese at the market, and in the mountains, delight in the scent of sun-warmed thyme.
Athens (Piraeus), Greece - You'll climb the Acropolis, the site of ancient Athens, crowned by the immortal Parthenon. Its chiseled columns were raised by Pericles, Athens's great general. Rest your running shoes in the temple of Nike. A little shopping and souvlaki in the Plaka and you're practically an (ancient) Athenian!
Barcelona, Spain - Barcelona is a one of a kind, world-class city. While away the day exploring the beautiful, tree-shaded Las Ramblas. Or, marvel at its fantastic Art Nouveau architecture, with dozens of buildings that seem to have been sculpted from the stuff of dreams, like the Sagrada Familia Cathedral. For the more worldly, shop for exquisite Lladro ceramics, chic spanish fashions or enjoy a cuisine that many say has rival's the French for the title of world's best.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - Plan your time here carefully, as the Eternal City's sights are endless: the Colosseum, the Forum, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican and so much more.
Messina, Sicily - A beautiful sheltered harbor is your gateway to Taormina, a small town at heart despite its major tourist attraction: the sublime Teatro Greco, offering panoramic views of the coastline and snow-capped Mt. Etna.
Mykonos, Greece - For pure Mediterranean pizzazz, Mykonos can't be beat. Designer boutiques and beautifully bronzed Greek gods and goddesses lie on Mykonos' beaches. And Mykonos' famous five white churches look down on it all in oblivious serenity.
Palamos, Spain - Located at the foot of the mountains on Spain's rugged Costa Brava, Palamos boasts seven superb beaches, Iberian archeological remains from the year 6 BC, and the Church of Sant Esteve on the beach. Highlighting the town center is its 16th-century cathedral.
Rethymnon, Crete, Greece - A beautiful Venetian harbor guarded by a lighthouse welcomes you to this well-preserved medieval town.Located between Heraklion and Chania on Crete's northern coast, it contains a wealth of sites worth visiting. Notable locations include a graceful 16th century Venetian loggia, two Ottoman mosques, a pair of museums displaying folkloric and historic items, and archaeological discoveries from the area. There are beaches, as well, and a 16th century Venetian castle dominating the high ground.
Sorrento, Italy - The Sorrento Peninsula forms the southern edge of the Bay of Naple. The history of this region extends as far back as the 11th century BC, earlier than Rome. During the Roman era, it became used by the wealthy for their country homes. Renowned for its serene way of life, this romantic port exudes a special magic, overflowing with charm and character. Sorrento today attracts visitors from the world over escaping here to enjoy the fabulous scenery, its wonderful climate and its endless shopping opportunities. From here, visitors often visit the sensational Amalfi Coast and the hauntingly well-preserved "ruins" at Pompeii.
Toulon, France - One of the Mediterranean's best ports and largest harbors welcomes you to the home of the French Mediterranean Fleet. Located in the Var prefecture of the Provence, Toulon has a long history that is revealed in various districts of the city. The Old Town is along the harbor, with narrow streets and small squares, most boasting a nicely decorated fountain. The Upper Town is mostly 19th century grandeur. You can take a cable car to Mont Faron, bypassing the road that is a notorious stretch for bicycle racers. The waterfront neighborhood of Le Mourillon is a family-friendly beach area for Toulonais. There are wonderful museums of history, art from various periods and naval history to explore as well.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
