Beautiful Amalfi Coast Bonifacio, nestled on top of Corsica’s coastal cliffs The sprawling ruins of Pompeii Ponza, Italy Trevi Fountain in Rome

Day 1 Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy | Embark

Arrive at one of the largest and busiest ports in the Mediterranean - Civitavecchia is the gateway to Rome. Rome has been recognized as one of the most-visited cities in the world. Its incredible history spans over 2,500 years, and its historic center is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museum and the Colosseum are amongst the world's 50 most-visited destinations. Settle in to your cabin and attend a welcome dinner as the ship sets sail.

Day 2 Bonifacio, France

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
As the ship approaches Bonifacio the Captain generally navigates along the limestone cliffs, giving guests a sea view of incredible Bonifacio as well as the famous Aragon steps leading to the water’s edge. Shortly after the pilot embarks, the Captain turns the yacht around and backs into this very impressive fjord-like marina.

Optional Activities: 

Bonifacio, Corsica – The White City by Train & Boat: This fun, varied, and interesting land adventure is an excellent opportunity to not only get to know your way around for independent explorations later in the day, but a knowledgeable and experienced guide provides you with a historic insight and context to let you appreciate this beautiful town to its fullest. Begin your visit with a mini-tram ride which takes you up to the oldest part of Bonifacio to provide you with a quick overview of this charming town. Pass the Bosco quarter with the St. Francis Convent and the strange but fascinating cemetery dedicated to mariners with wonderful mausoleums displaying a jumble of architectural styles. On clear days you may also enjoy a panoramic view of Corsica's closest neighbor - the Italian island, Sardinia. Then pass the church St. Dominique, a rare example of Corsican gothic architecture, built in 1270, most probably by the Templars. Following the orientation by mini-tram, continue your visit on foot through tiny, narrow streets bordered with high granite houses. Continue through the heart of the historical part of town to the Two Emperors street where Napoleon Bonaparte and Charles V spent a few days, the Place des Armes, the Jardins des Vestiges, and then to the old market where there is a viewpoint over the 230 ft. cliffs on top of which Bonifacio has been built! Return to the mini-train for the journey from the Citadel back to the port, where a local boat stands ready to show you the grottos at the base of the white cliffs. Catch a glimpse of the clearness of the water and, weather conditions permitting, enter the magnificent Grotto Sdragonatu, the largest of the three caves and which resembles the shape of Corsica. Inside discover the beautiful colors of amethyst, indigo, and gold, the clear water, and the rock walls with stalactites and arches. Continue your visit, passing St. Antoine and St. Barthelemy Caves, and the staircase of the King of Aragon carved in the limestone cliffs. After this boat ride of about 45 minutes, return to the ship.
Duration: 3.5 hours

Bonifacio, Corsica – Lavezzi Island by Boat: Board a local boat for an unforgettable trip along the extraordinary coastline of Bonifacio. Discover the dramatic sight of the citadel and the upper town; get the best perspective of its buildings overhanging the magnificent chalky cliffs which look like they are about to topple into the sea. Onboard the motor boat navigate out through the narrow harbor entrance called the Goulet, passing the deep rocky inlets with their clear aquamarine waters and the magical Grotte du Sdragonatu, which is entered through a narrow and low passage. The cave, with its gloriously colored seabed, is a single huge chamber with a hole in the roof shaped like a map of Corsica. Further along, reach Lavezzi Island from which the whole archipelago gets its name and which is formed by a group of small, barren, uninhabited granite islands located 10km southeast of Bonifacio. One hour is allocated to enjoy its beautiful sandy beaches and azure-colored sea and to linger on this island which is classified as a Nature Reserve since 1982. The island is home to several rare species of wildflowers such as yellow-horned poppy and white sea daffodil. On the way back pass close to Cavallo Island, pass the Pointe de Sperone, and come back through the calanque and the cliffs before reaching the attractive and lively marina in Bonifacio.
Duration: 3 hours

Day 3 Ponza, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Ponza is a truly delightful island in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The island is uniquely shaped like a crescent moon, and features glistening blue coastline and dramatic rocky coves, sandy beaches, hidden grottos, caves, and craggy cliffs. Ideal for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving, spend a relaxing day along the shores.

Optional Activities:  
 
Ponza – Ponza by Boat: Isola di Ponza is made up of spectacular bays, breathtaking cliffs, beautiful beaches, and crystal-clear waters. For some the island can only be truly appreciated by boat! Board your local boat and visit the famous caves of Pilate, the ancient Roman pools entirely carved into the rock. Navigate under the breathtaking Guardia Lighthouse built on a rock 80 meters high. Continuing around the point witness the stunningly beautiful beach of Chiaia di Luna. Your island circumnavigation continues with the Bay of Lucia Rosa featuring natural pools and the lovely cove called Ferns. Returning to the harbor you can enjoy the natural arch. From the arch visit the Core Beach where you can admire a black heart set in the white rock. Close by is the famous Frontone Beach, with its unique cliffs in the shape of the Greek pediments. During the trip, there are usually two stops of about 30 minutes for swimming. The captain decides where and when to stop as it depends on the conditions of the day.
Duration: 3.5 hours

Day 4 Amalfi, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Amalfi is a picturesque town in the province of Salerno, in the Campania region of Italy. With its incredible views, it is the main town that makes up the very famous and UNESCO awarded Amalfi coast (Costiera Amalfitana). Amalfi sports some impressive medieval architecture, including its Cathedral of Sant'Andrea (St. Andrew), the church tower, and the convent of the Cappuccini, founded by the Amalfitan Cardinal Pietro Capuano. They richly represent the artistic movement prevailing in Southern Italy.

Optional Activities: 

Amalfi – Fascinating Pompeii, with a “Whisper”: This land adventure is the opportunity to enhance your visit to the incredible site of Pompeii. A local guide speaks to you directly through the use of an audio headset, referred to as a "whisper". It allows you to listen to the wonderful detailed commentary of your excellent guides without straining to hear over other visitors and noises. From the ship quay in Amalfi, travel along the panoramic coastline and peninsula roads to the remarkably well-preserved ruins of Pompeii. Originally settled by indigenous people before the 8th century BC, and later ruled by Etruscans, Greeks, and Samnites, Pompeii became a thriving commercial center under Roman rule. It was a city full of shops, markets, and town houses, with paved streets, wide sidewalks, a stadium, two theaters, temples, and baths. Then, shortly after noon on August 24 in 79 AD, live cinder and ash from Mount Vesuvius covered the entire city. The community of 30,000 people was effectively embalmed. The material thrown out by the volcano was lighter than lava and enabled the city to be covered, with architectural detail, furnishings, household articles, and even foodstuffs and artwork preserved intact. Walk through the streets rutted by chariot tracks, past the ancient forum, the homes of the wealthy, and the shops of the common man. Caught in the moment of death, view body casts of the eruption's victims seemingly come alive in their struggle for breath, their desire to protect loved ones and their doomed attempts to escape. Those who visit Pompeii cannot help but be amazed and moved by this remarkable ruin and the story it tells of a city captured at the height of its power and the moment of its death.
Duration: 5 hours

Amalfi – Scenic Ravello: Enjoy a panoramic drive climbing up from the harbor in Amalfi to Ravello, one of the most famous and popular locations on the UNESCO awarded Amalfi coast. Ravello has long attracted writers, artists and celebrities, among them Greta Garbo, Gore Vidal (current resident), Richard Wagner, and D.H. Lawrence, who was inspired to write Lady Chatterley's Lover here. The winding route along the famed Amalfi Drive brings you to Ravello's main square, where you set eyes on the Duomo whose linear Romanesque facade is graced with a valuable bronze door made in 1179 by Barissano da Trani. To the right stands the 13th-century bell tower. Visit Villa Rufolo, a spectacular complex formed by the main palazzo and built in the second half of the 13th century, and various buildings in Arabian-Sicilian style on a wide terrace facing the gulf. Having entered the smaller 14th-century tower, continue along a small avenue flanked by cypresses and reach the Moorish courtyard, decorated with friezes and arabesques. Passing the knight's room, the picturesque belvedere opens up, a luxurious garden with pines, cypresses, and exotic plants. After exploring the villa, enjoy some free time to browse and shop among the friendly inhabitants of Ravello before returning to the pier in Amalfi.
Duration: 4 hours

Day 5 Positano, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Positano is one of the most picturesque villages along the UNESCO awarded Amalfi Coast. The town is perched on an enclave on the face of a hill and winds down towards the sea. Besides the incredibly romantic views, it offers excellent shopping, a nice beach, and several hiking opportunities.

Optional Activities:  
 
Positano – Private Air-Conditioned Sedan & Driver: The sedans (Mercedes C/E-Class or similar) seat up to four guests and are an enjoyable way to explore the scenic UNESCO awarded coastline, allowing you to travel at your own pace. For example, you may select a trip to Amalfi, at a distance of about 11 miles/18 km along the scenic coastal road. Another option is the lovely town of Ravello, just a bit further past Amalf, 15 miles/24 km from Positano. A lovely place for lunch in Ravello is the Hotel Caruso, a charming Orient-Express Hotel at a superb location.
Duration: varies

Day 6 Sorrento (Pompeii), Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Sorrento is a small town in Campania just south of Naples. The town overlooks the Bay of Naples and is considered the key place of the Sorrentine Peninsula, allowing many viewpoints including Naples, Vesuvius, and the Isle of Capri. Visit historical Pompeii and wander its open streets.
 
Optional Activities:
 
Sorrente (Pompeii) – Speed Boat to the Quattro Passi: Board a speed boat for a fast and scenic ride along the Sorrentine Peninsula and through the protected marine area of Punta Campanella. Arrive in Nerano, the location of one of the most popular restaurants with yachters in the area, the Michelin-listed Quattro Passi. The chef-patron greets you in the wine cellar for an aperitif before escorting you into the restaurant proper for a casual but gourmet lunch or dinner. Sorrento mozzarella, fresh ravioli, fish filets, fried eggplants, lamb cutlets, baba, semifreddo, local wines, and a location not to be missed await you. Fabulously fed, return along the local road by minibus to Sorrento.
Duration: 3.5 hours

Sorrente (Pompeii) – Cooking School at Villa Ida: This exclusive Land Adventure offers you the opportunity to learn the local way of cooking in the southern Italian style. After disembarking, be transferred to the Sorrento cooking school. The cooking lessons take place in Sorrento in an amazing, private, and manicured garden with lemon and orange trees, a swimming pool, typical "Pergolato", and ceramic decorations. After your arrival, move to the kitchen and start a unique educational experience of cooking delicious Italian cuisine. Classes are based on menus of the traditional Italian flavors, with a particular emphasis on Neapolitan recipes. All the recipes are clearly demonstrated in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. The cooking class lasts 3 hours, during which you have a break from cooking to visit the wine cellar and taste some homemade wine. At the end of the educational portion, enjoy a beautiful meal of the day’s preparations by the pool or under a Pergolato or in a nice winter garden by the fireplace. After lunch, return to Sorrento
Duration: 5 hours

Day 7 Capri, Italy

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Capri may very well be the most popular island on the planet. It is a beautiful Italian island in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Bay of Naples. Capri town is the island's main population center. The island has two harbors, Marina Piccola and Marina Grande (the main port of the island). The separate village of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west. From there visitors can continue up to the highest point of Mt. Solero. Besides some simply amazing shopping boutiques, the island has so much to offer including the ever popular Grotta Azzura, Villa Jovis, Giardini di Augusto, Certosa di San Giacomo, Villa San Michele di Axel Munthe, and the uniquely shaped Faraglioni Rocks. SeaDream has put together most of the sights into one adventure called “Discovering the Island of Love”. There’s also some great hikes available on the island; check with the activities team on board for more information.

Optional Activities: 
 
Capri – Blue Grotto Junket: Touristy, kitschy and fun! For those that "must-see" this well-known and visited grotto, SeaDream has made some special arrangements for you. A local motorboat pulls alongside the SeaDream gangway to transfer you, with a guide, to the famous Grotta Azzurra. Zip along the northern coast of the island before arriving at the grotto entrance, where SeaDream guests get priority over the usual tourist crowds. Transfer to one of the small rowboats that enter the grotto and the most extraordinary turquoise water. The luminescent glow of the cave walls reflecting in the seawater is quite a sight. Transfer back to Marina Grande on Capri, where you are free to explore the island on your own.
Duration: 1.5 hours

Capri – Discovering The Island of Love: This land adventure has it all! In love or not, sign up early for this annual favorite! Begin your discovery of "The Island of Love" by stepping from the yacht into a motor launch to explore the island's dramatic eastern coastline. See the famous Faraglioni Rocks, cruise into a coral cave, and explore the rugged vistas of Capri's tiny coves. As you step back ashore, head next to the high village of Anacapri in high style via your waiting convertible touring car (specifically made for the island of Capri – it’s a Caprisian Convertible!). Once in Anacapri, board a chairlift that takes you skimming over vineyards to the top of Mt. Solaro and its magnificent vistas. After some free time to wander in Anacapri, hop back in your car to wind down to Capri town, where you may explore the lush Cesar August Gardens with your guide before either returning to the yacht, or wandering through the shops and restaurants on your own. This is an excellent overview of one of the most visited islands in the world – enjoy every second of it!
