Day 1 Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy | Embark

Arrive in Rome and board the Sea Cloud II. Attend dinner as the ship sets sail.

Day 2 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy the ship's amenities as she sails for the island of Capri.

Day 3 Capri, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Even at the time of the Roman Empire, Capri was a particularly precious natural gem and became the summer residence of the Emperor Tiberius. Artists and hedonists, aristocrats and the moneyed classes discovered the island for themselves in the 19th century. This stunningly beautiful rocky island in the Gulf of Naples is famous for its numerous grottos, the most well known being the Blue Grotto. You can expect a combination of pleasure and spectacle when you experience the colorful lifestyle and goings-on in the Piazetta right in the center of Capri.

Day 4 Amalfi, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The beautifully curving Amalfi Coast, which meanders along the starkly protruding Sorrento peninsula, has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the pretty little town of Amalfi, whose history as an influential maritime republic is still clear to see, a dense labyrinth of pastel-colored houses clings to the rocky coastline. Boasting three naves, the beautiful 10th-century cathedral with an enchanting cloister, colorful marble façade, Arabic-Norman campanile, and magnificent steps leading to the lively Piazza Duomo is the heart of this small coastal town.

Day 5-6 Giardini Naxos (Taormina), Sicily

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Taormina is perched on a rock with a majestic view over the sea. In the 19th century, this small town had already developed into a dream destination for well-heeled travelers and artists. The town's fascination lies in its elegance, the many ancient buildings, the stunningly beautiful coastline, the mild climate, and the view over the silhouette of Etna. Europe's largest volcano is over 3,000 meters (9,843 feet) high, has four summit craters and around 400 subsidiary craters, and is covered with snow almost all year round. In ancient times it was considered the seat of the gods, but nowadays large sections of it are a nature reserve.

Day 8 Valletta, Malta | Disembark
