7-Night Mediterranean Jewels Voyage

DAY 1 - EMBARKATION - Civitavecchia, (Rome), Italy

Always enchanting, the Eternal City will captivate you—no matter how many times you visit. Walk in the steps of gladiators at the Coliseum, channel your inner statesman at the Forum, or gaze up in wonder at Michelangelo’s masterwork at St. Peter’s Basilica. Pasta and vino are a must, and there are plenty of places to relax and refuel after a day of exploration.

DAY 2-3 - Livorno, (Florence & Pisa), Italy

The port city of Livorno has many charms of its own: the canals of La Venezia Nuova (New Venice), which date back to the Medici era, the Mercato Centrale, and the chessboard-style Terrazza Mascagni promenade, to name a few. But Livorno is also the gateway to the magnificent art and architecture, palaces, churches and museums of Florence, as well as Pisa’s famous leaning tower. Decisions, decisions!

DAY 4 - Monte-Carlo, Monaco

You don’t need luck on your side to have an unforgettable time in Monte Carlo! Home to the legendary Grand Casino and the opulent Royal Palace, Monte Carlo lives up to its reputation in every way. Stroll among luxury yachts at Port Hercules and soak in sweeping Med views from The Rock—a towering outcrop the royals of Monaco call home.

DAY 5 - Ajaccio, Corsica, France

Discover Napoléon’s influence and enduring legacy in his hometown of Ajaccio. His presence is visible throughout the city in everything from his childhood home, the Maison Bonaparte, to museums like Salon Napoléonien. History aside, this small town is brimming with Italian Renaissance art and delicious French cuisine.

DAY 6 - Mahon, Menorca, Spain

From the moment Mahon comes into view from the ship, you know you’re in a special place. Perched high atop a cliff, shops, cafes, and restaurants line Mahon’s vibrant streets and are yours to discover. While visiting, be sure to explore the Church of Santa Maria. Here, you’ll find an unbelievable organ—complete with four keyboards and over 3,000 individual pipes—and a lovely municipal market.

DAY 7 - Palma De Mallorca, Spain

A modern city with an ancient past, Palma’s rich history is yours to explore. Architecture admirers must visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Palma, an iconic Gothic Roman Catholic cathedral that has stood for nearly 800 years. For nature lovers, don’t miss the Caves of Drach, where light and shadow dances across the rock formations, creating incomparable visuals you won’t see anywhere else.

DAY 8 - DEBARKATION - Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona is a cosmopolitan masterpiece. With a history rich in art and architecture, medieval, Gothic, and modern influences can be seen all over the city. Start at the waterfront and stroll up the shady, tree-lined Las Ramblas boulevard and discover some of the city’s best shopping and bustling cafes.

ONBOARD DINING OPTIONS

Specialty Dining
At Aqualina, you’ll find some of Italy’s most celebrated dishes. But you’ll also find contemporary inventive cuisine. Start with lobster ravioli, followed by arugula and radicchio with prosciutto chips, and a Venetian seafood platter. You won’t be able to say no to our famous desserts: marsala custard, lemon soufflé, or tiramisu. Our chefs love to be inspired, so after an on shore visit to a local market, you can also expect a delectable dish so local, you’ll feel like you’re not onboard anymore.

Specialty dining is complimentary for suite guests. For others, there is a $30 per-person cover. Reservations are highly recommended.

Specialty Dining
Steaks cooked to perfection. Crab cakes with remoulade. Lobster bisque. Lamb, game hens and seafood. And last but certainly not least, our famous mini cinnamon-sugar donuts with dipping sauces for dessert. (Yes, they are as good as they sound.) But at Prime C, you’re in for more than an array of delectable dining. Expect a marvelous evening in a warm wood-paneled ambiance with stunning views and lush décor. And, if our chef has made a visit to a local market while we’re in port, you’ll also have an authentic local dish to look forward to, made just for you.

Specialty dining is complimentary for suite guests. For others, there is a $30 per-person cover. Reservations are highly recommended.

Fine Wines
You’ll be hard-pressed to find such a collection of limited production, small label and rare vintage wines anywhere on the high seas! And with vintages from France to California, and Argentina to South Africa, you’re sure to find a wine to suit your palate. And your journey. Our knowledgeable sommeliers can help you pick the perfect wines for your evening meal—and your voyage!—and be sure to join our Wine Corner gatherings in the Mosaic Café, perfect for discovering and enjoying new wines and benefiting from the thoughtful guidance of our sommelier.

Main Dining
Discover the world through dishes and flavors from the places we visit. Whether it’s our Destination Immersion dinner buffet or the Destination Immersion cuisine on our dinner menu, give your dining a little local flavor and enjoy on shore tastes onboard! Of course, you will also enjoy a wide variety of nightly selections such as filet mignon with black truffle sauce. With its elegant yet lively dining and renewed décor, it’s easy to see why this restaurant is a hands-down favorite, the culinary heart of our ships. Gather at Discoveries Bar for drinks before or after dinner.

Reservations are not accepted. Choose being seated at a table for two or as part of a larger group of fellow guests (which we highly recommend! It’s a great way to meet new people)

Casual Dining & Snacks
Casual “pool grill” by day. Then, fine tablecloths and flickering candles will set the mood for a sit-down al fresco dining experience by night. Taste your way around the world with exclusive personalized dishes using local flavors of the places we visit on our Destination Immersion® cuisine dinner menu served by our professional wait staff. And for a little touch of whimsy, a self-serve frozen yogurt station—Swirl & Top. With a variety of flavors and your choice of toppings, it’s the perfect way to cool off during the day or end your evening meal.

Casual Dining & Snacks
The best way to see where you are in the world is not by looking at your itinerary. It’s by checking out the menu at Windows Café! Our daily themed dinner often takes its inspiration from the region we’re visiting—Indian, Mexican, Spanish, Italian. We also create an extra live station made from local ingredients purchased in port: Greek salad made with local feta (Greece), pasta prepared with local mushrooms (Italy), fresh Mussels served with garlic bread (Netherlands). Take in the fresh breeze at an outdoor table and relax in the easy and casual atmosphere of the newly renovated Windows Café. Enjoy an intimate breakfast, lunch, or dinner for two or a lively meal for six with our flexible seating options. And speaking of choices, selections change daily. Choose from fresh sushi, stir-fry and pasta, salads, smoked lox and other cold fish, a carving station and of course, desserts

Casual Dining & Snacks
Comfortable and stylish, Mosaic is the place where you’ll find your favorite coffee drinks, just the way you like. Try our Nespresso specialty coffee (for a fee). Slip into a comfortable seat and sip for a while. The perfect place to start (or end) your day, no matter where you are in the world. This just might become your favorite area on the ship.
