WE START OUR JOURNEY in the stunning cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, Barcelona. Renowned for its art and architecture and the fantastical Sagrada Família church and other modernist landmarks designed by Antoni Gaudí which you'll find dotted around the city. Our first port of call is the famous town of Cannes, situated on the vibrant French Riviera with its museums and architecture and tree lined streets, not to mention its beautiful long sandy beaches. We then cruise over to Italy where we visit three of the country's most important cities. The first awaiting you is Florence & Pisa, rich in its art and history. What makes this a great port of call is all the main attractions in Florence are centrally located for the perfect walking tour. Next stop is Rome. With its two and a half thousand years of history, art and culture, it is no surprise that Rome is one of the most visited cities on the planet. Gaze at the masterpieces of the Vatican or walk into the past as we visit Rome's ancient relics, historic monuments and legendary museums. Our final Italian mainland port is Naples, located on Italy's stunning Amalfi coast, a city rich in history. Here you are spoilt for choice ... take a tour around Naples' grand piazzas, cathedrals and castles or visit Pompeii, now a vast archaeological site that once was a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, buried under meters of ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. We said you would be spoilt for choice as you can also sneak in a visit to the romantic town of Sorrento, perched atop cliffs with sweeping water views, cafe-lined streets and breathtaking vistas. From Naples we continue our Italian theme, stopping at Cagliari, the capital city of the island of Sardinia. By sea is by far the best way to arrive at this historic capital, renowned for its hilltop Castello, sitting majestically above a myriad of colourful facades. Cagliari is like many Italian cities, everywhere you go you come across traces of its rich past including ancient Roman ruins, museums filled with prehistoric artefacts and centuries-old churches. From Italy we cruise to the "Pearl of the Mediterranean", Palma, on the beautiful island of Majorca, a city, founded by the Romans some 2,100 years ago, and steeped in history and architectural splendour. Here you can take a journey back in time and wander the mazes of alleyways and cobblestone paths surrounding the Gothic cathedral, soaking up everything this stunning city has to offer. Our final port of call is to the island of Ibiza. With its vibrant spirit and natural beauty, the Balearic island of Ibiza (or "Eivissa," as it's known locally) has a mix of secluded beaches and coves to explore vs. the historic old town which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the cruise ship terminal, you can admire an outstanding view of D’alt Vila, an old fortified town that once used to be one of the most important cities on the Mediterranean coast. Now it's the perfect place to explore a maze of winding, narrow streets, and a magnificent Plaza de Vila square, where you can find art galleries, shops, restaurants, and museums.
After leaving Ibiza we now head back to Barcelona for your onward journey back home. By this time we hope you have experienced the holiday of a lifetime, visiting some of the most important historical towns and cities along the Mediterranean. We also hope that you have formed some fantastic friendships with your fellow guests.
Your Diva Destinations representative will look after you from the moment you arrive at Barcelona to the moment you depart the ship. A holiday where women can meet new friends, share a fantastic cruise experience and have a wonderfully relaxing holiday. Our group will meet each day for meals; with evenings spent together either at one of our hosted events or at one of the ship’s entertainment events, all at your disposal. During our time at sea you can join our representative for some fun activities on deck. For the remainder of your voyage the days will be taken up going ashore to explore the many sites on offer.
