Duration
10 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,659

Depart the Eternal City and discover the Mediterranean’s most exciting ports on this weeklong trip aboard the Norwegian Epic. Immerse yourself in the history and culture of Italy, Sardinia, and Spain.


Please see left bar for ship details and cruise info.

 

Enjoy 2 nights in Rome prior to an 8-day voyage aboard the Norwegian Epic will leave you with a love of both cruise vacations and the Mediterranean. Combine historic sights, enchanting villages, and world class cities, enjoying state of the art luxury and entertainment onboard in between ports.

Your departure port, Rome, is timeless, peerless, and endlessly rewarding. No tourist line can take away the magnificence of the Colosseum or Forum, or dull the cultural riches of the Vatican Museums. Of course, you can always just pull up a chair and an espresso and watch the sometimes chaotic street life race by, enjoying la dolce vita at your own pace.

Dock in Naples, on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. A famously gritty, authentic Italian city steeped in history and amazing food, this is perhaps the best cultural immersion you can have in central Italy. If you don’t mind rubbing shoulders with the tourists, spend your day visiting the fascinating nearby ruins of Pompeii. Otherwise, roam the intimate streets and piazzas of Naples, enjoying the centuries-old cathedrals, castles, and more. Oh, and be sure to have pizza for lunch, even if you don’t particularly like it at home.

A lesser known historic mystery awaits you in Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia. Thousands of stone dwellings known as nuraghi dot the island, bringing both mystery and intrigue to your Mediterranean cruise, before you spend a day at sea. Incidentally, the Norwegian Epic offers over 20 different dining options, plus some of the highest quality entertainment you’ll find on any ship, including two of Broadway’s hottest musicals. It’s also uniquely appealing for solo travellers, offering Studios designed (and priced) for one.

Time to dive into the beauty and treasures of Spain. Dock in Malaga, and head to Granada, one of the country’s most evocative and complex cities. Nowhere is this more evident than at The Alhambra, where the artisans were determined to fully utilise each surface as a canvass for exquisite decoration. Book tickets in advance if you’re planning to visit. Otherwise, simply enjoy the undeniable charm of Granada itself.

Sail on to Cartagena, a port that dates back to the Roman Empire. That legacy can be found right alongside modern-day resorts, creating a unique trip back in time for visitors, while still offering every modern convenience. Your next stop is Valencia, Spain’s third largest city and an architectural marvel that places great value on innovation and good living.

End your voyage in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, and one of the world’s most unique cities. Walk in the footsteps of Gaudi, Picasso, Dali, and countless others, or book a few extra days here to discover their legacy in detail. Perhaps visit the Picasso Museum to explore the master’s early work, or immerse yourself in the architectural genius of Modernisme, which gave Barcelona much of its distinctive character.
