Western Mediterranean & Northern Spain Journey Cruise Itinerary
Welcome to the cultural hub of Barcelona, the capital of Spain! Explore the stunning sights such as the Sagrada Familia and enjoy the local tapas for some truly delicious cuisine. It’s now time to board Symphony of the Seas and enjoy your 7 night Western Mediterranean cruise!
Palma de Mallorca is a rugged island, home to sun, sea and sand. Palma, the capital city, is shaped by a youthful cafe and arts scene which sees influence from a range of travellers. It seamlessly blends historic and modern architecture, winding laneways and secluded courtyards.
Provence is France’s oldest city, though the vibe would argue differently. The vibrant arts scene and food culture instill a sense of youth in to this beautiful port city, once known as the gateway to the Mediterranean.
Today you’ll have the opportunity to snap that perfect picture, supporting the Leaning Tower of Pisa then enjoying a pizza. Travel to Florence for more delicious Italian cuisine, be enamoured by the Duomo and Michelangelo’s “David” statue right before the beautiful sunset over the Arno River.
Endless adventures await in Rome. With two and a half thousand years of history, art and culture, it is no wonder Rome is one of the most visited cities on the planet. Gaze at the masterpieces of the Vatican or walk into the past with visits to ancient relics, historic monuments and legendary museums. Or people-watch while sipping on an espresso in a quaint cafe.
Cruise to Naples, located on Italy’s stunning Amalfi coast, a city rich in history. A tour around Naples’ grand piazzas, cathedrals and castles in the old centre will take you back centuries. Pompeii is not too far either, a dashing city which boasts diverse cultural offerings and charming streets.
Dining with Royal Caribbean is much more than just eating, whether you’re after a group dining experience, 5 star masterpieces or just a casual bite to eat. Vision offers ambience, variety and flexibility at any time. If adventure is your middle name then test your strength on the rock climbing wall or maybe a day of tranquility is more up your alley. Relax with a variety of spa treatments and laze back by the outdoor pool with a beverage or two.
Welcome back to Barcelona. Now is your chance to explore everything you ran out of time to do at the start e.g. more tapas! Time to disembark but luckily you have complimentary accommodation in the city before commencing your land journey across Northern Spain.
