Ports of Call
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.
Cannes, France - When Lord Brougham, Chancellor of Britain was forced to make an unscheduled stop in Cannes on his journey to Italy, he was captivated by the natural setting of the village. Each winter he returned to Cannes which began a tourism industry as England's wealthy flocked to spend their holidays here. Today the rich and famous come from all over the world to participate in the elite Cannes Festival, which honors filmmakers from the world over.
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.
Genoa, Italy - A commercial port, genteel seaside resort, fine 16th century palaces in a town proud of its history and legend which was the native place of Christopher Columbus
Kotor, Montenegro - Though small, this city is vibrant and shining and its people are happy to share their city with all who come.
Venice, Italy - Venice is possibly the most romantic place you'll ever visit. It seems almost redundant to describe the charms of Venice. The cafes of St. Mark's Square, Palazzo-lined canals plied by gondolas, the elegant Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore: Venice is one impossibly beautiful sight after next. A great collection of Renaissance era art is housed at Gallerie dell'Accademia. Or, if you prefer modern art, Venice is home to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. And, if you want to enjoy a truly special meal while here, visit one of the excellent restaurants of the Associazione dei Ristoranti della Buona Accoglienza.

Still not sure how you'll entertain yourself? Here's the New York Times' take on how to get the most out of your time in Venice (published June 12, 2014) 36 Hours in Venice Port tips from our blog
Zadar, Croatia - Zadar is blessed with beautiful natural surroundings. The city faces an Adriatic archipelago that is one of the best sailing areas in the world. With its mild winters and warm summer, Zadar offers inhabitants and visitors an excellent environment for work and leisure.

Zadar is bordered by four national parks: the untouched Kornati Islands, the breathtaking Velebit mountains, the winding Krka River and the peaceful Plitvice Lakes. Other natural sites include the canyon of the river Zrmanja and the caves at Cerovac. These places are ideal for swimming, diving, boating, surfing, tracking, climbing and even skiing.

Our staff can assist you with all your travel arrangements.

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.
