Date Port Arrival Departure
Oct 17, Wednesday
Haifa, Israel »   Embark pm
Haifa is Hebrew for "beautiful coast," and the shining coastline of Israel's largest Mediterranean port lives up to its name. But even more impressive are the slopes of Mt. Carmel, on which much of the city lies. Travel through the gorgeous villas and resort hotels to the summit for spectacular views of the city's many gardens, and striking Haifa Bay.

Oct 19, Friday
Bodrum, Turkey » 8 am 6 pm

Bodrum is a popular destination for jet-setters, Turkish intellectuals and European vacationers who enjoy sandy beaches, sheltered coves, clear, warm waters and a touch of sophistication. Indeed, the city has long been a gathering place for artists and a magnet for yachtsmen.

While the bustling harbor welcomes visitors to Bodrum's shores, the city's interesting attractions invite them to explore. The Castle of St. Peter was built by the Knights of Rhodes in 1402 and boasts grand stone staircases, impressive towers and gardens populated by peacocks, statues, mosaics and sarcophagi. From the castle's courtyard, magnificent views of the town and bay are to be admired and captured with a few clicks of the camera. The Museum of Marine Antiquities showcases the world's largest collection of artifacts retrieved from ancient shipwrecks. And the waters surrounding the city offer scuba diving, with chances to see the coral beds and natural sea sponges for which the area is famous.

Oct 21, Sunday
Corfu, Greece » 8 am 5 pm
Shaped like a scythe, the island of Corfu is considered one of the Mediterranean's best-kept secrets. Its lush interior is covered in cypress and olive trees while the main downtown area has elegant Venetian architecture and a serene atmosphere. Strategically important due to its location, this island has managed to maintain its uniqueness despite numerous invasions by outside forces. Today, the culture of Corfu reflects its turbulent past as well as its origins.
Oct 22, Monday
Dubrovnik, Croatia » 8 am 6 pm
Though it has only recently re-emerged as an independent nation, Croatia is by no means a new country. There were settlements along the Dalmatian Coast before recorded time. When Slavic people migrated here in the 6th century, they converted to Catholicism and adopted the local Latin alphabet. The region eventually became part of the powerful Kingdom of Croatia. Medieval Dubrovnik, formerly the Republic of Ragusa, was one of several walled cities established in the 7th century to guard the coastal approaches. Its fortification was completed in the 13th century and has remained relatively unchanged. The city walls are in excellent condition and today prevent invasion by automobiles. Within the walls, the lovely sleek lines of Venetian-style buildings complement a wealth of ancient stone architecture. Nearby islands feature beautiful beaches as well as intriguing ancient ruins.
Oct 23, Tuesday
Venice, Italy (overnight) » 3 pm  
Venice rests three miles off the coast of mainland Italy and is considered one of the world's most enchanting cities. Known as the "Queen of the Adriatic," it actually comprises more than 100 separate islands. Laced together by a string of 400 intricate bridges, Venice is legendary for its labyrinthine network of canals. A whimsical stroll through the city can lead one to a hidden world of ornately decorated piazzas and shops. As you explore colorful marketplaces and busy town squares, marvel at a priceless legacy of Baroque architecture. Admire the richness of St. Mark's Basilica and the lavishness of the Palazzo Ducale. Getting lost in Venice can be a truly delightful experience. The place of dreams, this romantic city will live long in your memory.
