Western Mediterranean Cruise in January 2012

Most wouldn't think of a Med cruise in January- it is certainly colder, but much less crowded, and if serious sightseeing in the beautiful cities of Spain and Italy is what you want to do, this is the cruise for you. Pack some layers and enjoy a slightly different type of holiday! This 10-night cruise departing from Naples and finishing in Southampton has plenty of interesting ports of call to keep you occupied. First one is Civitavecchia, the port of Rome where you can see the incredible Colloseum and toss a coin in the Trevi fountain and eat some pizza and pasta to keep warm. The next stop is Palma on the island of Majorca, a sophisticated hotspot, and then on to Valencia on mainland Spain.Valencia, the country's 3rd-largest city, is known for it's pavement cafes and Paella. The art and architecture here is amazing, so take some time to look around, and visit the new "City of Arts and Sciences." The ship will then take you to several more of Spain's beautiful and historic cities- Almeria and Cadiz. The next stop is Lisbon, Portugal's capital. All of these ports offer endless options for things to see and do, so be prepared to be busy! Disembark in Southampton, UK- home to the great ocean liner tradition.
