Day 1 - Palma

Arrive: Sat 17 July 2021 / Depart: Sat 17 July 2021 at 22:00

Beaches or bargains, the sea or sights. Palma has it all, together with enough sunshine and souvenirs to keep anyone happy. If you like beaches, cafes or simply lazing around in the sunshine, you'll love Palma, together with the nearby resorts of Palma Nova and Magaluf. Before you relax, though, make sure you visit Palma City itself to see the Moorish palace, the designer stores and the quaint shops and cobbled streets of the old city, behind the Gothic Cathedral. And for souvenirs, make a bee-line for Inca, the largest street market on the island which opens every Thursday.

Day 2 - At Sea

Day 3 - La Spezia

Arrive: Mon 19 July 2021 at 07:00 / Depart: Mon 19 July 2021 at 19:00

A charming town itself, La Spezia is also the gateway to the beautiful Le Cinque Terre region. At the centre of the most captivating coastal area of Italy called the Gulf of the Poets, La Spezia has the typical narrow streets and yellow, pink and orange buildings of old Italian towns. It is beyond the town, however, where the real beauty lies.

Day 4 - Elba

Arrive: Tue 20 July 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Tue 20 July 2021 at 18:00

Day 5 - Olbia/Sardinia

Arrive: Wed 21 July 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Wed 21 July 2021 at 18:00

Often called the Gateway to the Emerald Coast, the NorthEastern port of Olbia is tucked into a bay in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is one of Europe's most fashionable resort areas.

Day 6 - Cote d’Azur

Arrive: Thu 22 July 2021 at 09:00 / Depart: Thu 22 July 2021 at 17:00

Day 7 - Tarragona

Arrive: Fri 23 July 2021 at 09:30 / Depart: Fri 23 July 2021 at 19:30

Steeped in historical interest and home to one of Europe's largest amusement parks, the charming Catalonian port of Tarragona really does have something for everyone. Developed by Julius Caesar and favoured by archaeologists for its wealth of Roman artefacts, charismatic Tarragona perches on a rocky hill overlooking the Mediterranean. On the hill's southern slopes, the old town contains many sites of historical interest. Quiet pedestrian streets make browsing in the many antique shops and grottos a real pleasure, while to the east you can stroll along the beautiful terraced avenue of Paseo de les Palmeres. Closer to port you can ramble along a pathway, taking in the ancient city walls and cypress-lined gardens. If you want to get off the beaten track, head to nearby Montserrat (pictured above) for stunning views of the Catalan countryside.

Day 8 - Palma

Arrive: Sat 24 July 2021 / Depart: Sat 24 July 2021

Beaches or bargains, the sea or sights. Palma has it all, together with enough sunshine and souvenirs to keep anyone happy. If you like beaches, cafes or simply lazing around in the sunshine, you'll love Palma, together with the nearby resorts of Palma Nova and Magaluf. Before you relax, though, make sure you visit Palma City itself to see the Moorish palace, the designer stores and the quaint shops and cobbled streets of the old city, behind the Gothic Cathedral. And for souvenirs, make a bee-line for Inca, the largest street market on the island which opens every Thursday.

Day 9 - At Sea

Day 10 - Ajaccio

Arrive: Mon 26 July 2021 at 08:00 / Depart: Mon 26 July 2021 at 18:00

Sitting amidst a varied landscape of mountains and beaches, the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte on the west coast of Corsica is a wonderful destination to explore. The breathtaking sight when you sail into Ajaccio, with the crystal blue waters contrasting with the green of the beautiful countryside, is just the introduction to Ajaccio. Boasting Corsican architecture as well as a famous military leader, the town features a fascinating blend of French and Italian influences.

Day 11 - Rome

Arrive: Tue 27 July 2021 at 07:00 / Depart: Tue 27 July 2021 at 19:00

History doesn't come much better than the Eternal City. Neither does the opportunity to find exclusive designer shops. Discover the old and the new city in Rome. Whatever you're looking for in Rome, you'll find it. For a touch of the past, try the magnificent 50,000 seater Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Forum Romanum and the Spanish Steps. That's not forgetting the Vatican itself, with St Peter's Cathedral and the unrivalled Vatican Museum. Or the Trevi Fountain where you can throw a coin in the water for good luck. But not all Roman roads are lined with antiquities. Some boast the exclusive shops of Fendi, Valentino and Gucci, while others are lined with bustling cafes from the fancy to the casually friendly.

Day 12 - Livorno

Arrive: Wed 28 July 2021 at 07:00 / Depart: Wed 28 July 2021 at 19:00

Think sights, sights and more sights. This is the perfect excuse to discover the real pleasures of Tuscany, and the real magic of Pisa. Wander through the ancient cobbled streets of Florence amd enjoy a coffee or Italian ice cream while you soak in the atmosphere. Visit the Uffizi Galleries, one of the best art museums in the world, before taking in the famous Duomo cathedral, the Santo Spirito church and the magnificent bronze doors of the Basilica, aptly named 'the gates of heaven' by Michelangelo. And then wonder if the Leaning Tower, one of four impressive buildings in the Field of Miracles in Pisa, really is a hidden treasures and ambience of Pisa itself.

Day 13 - Saint Raphael, France

Arrive: Thu 29 July 2021 at 07:00 / Depart: Thu 29 July 2021 at 17:00

Day 14 - Barcelona

Arrive: Fri 30 July 2021 at 10:00 / Depart: Fri 30 July 2021 at 18:00

Its phenomenal reputation makes other cities positively green with envy, and bohemian Barcelona continues to top the popularity charts. So what makes it such a big hit? Well, where do we start?

Day 15 - Palma

Arrive: Sat 31 July 2021 at 06:00 / Depart: Sat 31 July 2021
