Day 2 - At Sea

Day 3 - At Sea

Day 4 - At Sea

Day 5 - Gibraltar

Arrive: Sat 01 October 2022 / Depart: Sat 01 October 2022

Dominated by ‘the Rock', a towering 1, 396 ft sentinel that guards the Straits, the Arabs' Gebel el Tarik or Tarik's Rock is today simply ‘Gib'. Resolutely British for nearly 300 years, its unique setting unites the oddly familiar - from the helmeted policemen to Marks & Spencer - with an extrovert Mediterranean mood. Test the shops and pubs in Main Street and Irish Town, take a cable-car ride to enjoy the grandstand views to a nearby Africa, and of course make a call on those Barbary apes!

Day 6 - At Sea

Day 7 - At Sea

Day 8 - Malta

Arrive: Tue 04 October 2022 / Depart: Tue 04 October 2022

Strategically situated midway between Sicily and North Africa, Malta is in every sense a Mediterranean crossroads - a tiny island with an epic and heroic history in which invasion and siege have seen the influence Romans, Phoenicians, Greeks, Arabs, Normans, Crusaders and, of course, Britain all leave an enduring mark upon its cultural heritage. The16th century walled capital of Valletta with its Grand Harbour is a treasure-chest bristling with Baroque architecture, its narrow streets a tempting honeycomb of colourful shops and stalls.

Day 9 - At Sea

Day 10 - Split

Arrive: Thu 06 October 2022 / Depart: Thu 06 October 2022

In the heart of Dalmatia, the largest Croatian city on the Adriatic coast dates back to the days of Diocletian. The old town is built around the harbour and much of the old city remains to this day. A visit to the Roman Palace of Emperor Diocletian is well worth a visit. Other notable site include the cathedral; the Temple of Jupiter; the Golden Gate; the Silver Gate; and Peristyle Square.

Day 11 - Dubrovnik

Arrive: Fri 07 October 2022 / Depart: Fri 07 October 2022

There's no mistaking the past wealth and proud spirit of this ‘Jewel of the Adriatic', perched on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast. An independent city-state for 600 years until conquered by Napoleon, Dubrovnik survives, despite recent events, as one of Europe's best preserved medieval cities - a timeless architectural showpiece, whose graceful churches and cloisters, palaces and fountains, mellow Baroque facades and encircling ancient walls, all seem more stage set than reality.

Day 12 - Kotor

Arrive: Sat 08 October 2022 / Depart: Sat 08 October 2022

The Old City is a highly preserved example of life in the Middle Ages, and the medieval architecture there has ensured its place as a UNESCO listed 'World Natural and Historical Heritage Site'.

Day 13 - At Sea

Day 14 - At Sea

Day 15 - Volos, Greece

Day 16 - Thessaloniki

Arrive: Wed 12 October 2022 / Depart: Wed 12 October 2022

Thessaloniki is a Greek port city on the Thermaic Gulf of the Aegean Sea. Evidence of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman history remains, especially around Ano Poli, the upper town. The ruins of Roman Emperor Galerius’ 4th-century palace include the Rotunda that has been both a church and a mosque.

Day 17 - Kavala, Greece

Day 18 - Kusadasi

Arrive: Fri 14 October 2022 / Depart: Fri 14 October 2022

Ku?adasi is a beach resort town on Turkey’s western Aegean coast, and a gateway for the classical ruins at nearby Ephesus, one of the nation’s best preserved ancient cities. Numerous attractive cafes and restaurants scattered along palm-lined boulevards serving a variety of fresh seafood and local specialities add to the lively atmosphere of the town. For a slice of tranquillity many visit Ku?adasi’s various steam baths and the natural spas.

Day 19 - Athens

Arrive: Sat 15 October 2022 / Depart: Sat 15 October 2022

The port of Piraeus brings you to Athens, one of the great names of antiquity, the city of Plato and Socrates, a cradle of Western civilisation and birthplace of democracy. You can step in to that history on the heights of the Acropolis with its glorious 2,500-years-old Parthenon dating from the Golden Age of Classical Greece. Below, in the heart of the city lies the ancient Plaka District's honeycomb of streets, little shops - and tavernas that come alive at night with the pulse of bouzouki.

Day 20 - Katakolon

Arrive: Sun 16 October 2022 / Depart: Sun 16 October 2022

This sleepy port in the Peloponnese lies near the site of Olympia. In this wooded valley the original Olympic Games between Greek city states began in 776 BC. Following the calendar based on Olympia, contestants met every four years to race, wrestle and sing for the prized olive wreath from the sacred tree by the temple of Zeus.

Day 21 - Cruise Straits of Messina

Day 22 - At Sea

Day 23 - Mahon

Arrive: Wed 19 October 2022 / Depart: Wed 19 October 2022

The second of Spain's four Balearic Islands, Menorca has an engaging charm perfectly embodied in the easily explored capital of Mahon with its attractive shops, outdoor market and the traditional buildings of its hilly old quarter. One of Europe's best natural harbours - where the 18th century British fleet sheltered when Menorca was ruled from London (Admiral Nelson's visits are commemorated still by the local Nelson Gin!)

Day 24 - At Sea

Day 25 - Cadiz

Arrive: Fri 21 October 2022 / Depart: Fri 21 October 2022

One of Western Europe's most ancient cities, founded 3,000 years ago by Phoenician merchants, Cadiz hugs Andalucia's sunlit Atlantic coast. It's a historic and intriguing seaport-from which Spain's galleons once sailed in quest of New World treasure - characterised by palm trees, look out towers and weathered old buildings. From here you can visit Jerez de la Frontera, centre of Spain's sherry production, and put to the test the creations of its many bodegas!

Day 26 - At Sea

Day 27 - At Sea

Day 28 - At Sea

Day 29 - Dover, UK

    I dealt with a lady called Sarah who really put herself out to help she even rang me back after I had changer cabins to tell me the one I was in was next to the laundry and asked if I would like to be moved in case os noise at night. She had no reason to do this and I thought it most considerate.
