Day to Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Civitavecchia Port, Rome, Italy: Depart 5 pm

On arrival in Rome Airport, and after collecting your luggage you will be met by our transfer agent who will show you to your transfer to the port to meet Celebrity Silhouette. You will be welcomed aboard the ship, and may even experience some free-time in Civitavecchia while it is docked in port. The ship is due to depart this evening at approx 5pm.

Day 2: At Sea: 

A day at sea is the perfect time to explore our one-of-a-kind Lawn Club. Relax in the sun, enjoy a drink, or even a picnic, all with real grass between your toes.

Day 3:  Katakolon, Greece: Arrive 7 am Depart 3 pm

Use this picturesque Peloponnese port as your gateway to one of Greece’s most historic landmarks – ancient Olympia. Located in a lush green valley, its stadium was the largest of its kind.

Day 4: Athens (Piraeus), Greece: Arrive 6 am Depart 6 pm

Ah, Athens. The birthplace of democracy and western civilisation, with the crowning glory, the Acropolis, perched atop its plateau. Come and lose yourself in the twisting streets of the ancient Plaka district.

Day 5: Rhodes, Greece: Arrive 10 am Depart 7 pm

Two millennia ago, you’d have been awestruck by the 100ft Colossus of Rhodes. Today, many diverse sites remain, such as the Temple of Venus. One thing that hasn’t changed is the sunshine.

Day 6: At Sea: 

Onboard Celebrity Cruises, dining in one of our speciality restaurants is a must. Why not try Murano? Sumptuous surroundings, impeccable service, and outstanding French cuisine.

Days 7-8: Jerusalem (Ashdod), Israel: Arrive 8 am OVERNIGHT Depart 10 pm

Jerusalem is one of the world’s oldest cities. Gaze at the Western Wall, all that’s left of the Second Temple, or watch the sunlight hit the golden-roofed Dome of the Rock.

Day 9: Haifa, Israel: Arrive 6 am  Depart  6 pm

This city rises dramatically from the Mediterranean on terraced hillsides to Mount Carmel. From here, the world lies at your feet, and on a clear day you can see the Lebanese border.

Day 10: At Sea: 

On your cruise, make sure you take in a show in our Main Theatre. Cutting-edge productions from fairy tales to comedies, stadium-style concerts to musical theatre. There’s something for everyone.

Day 11: Chania, Crete: Arrive 7 am  Depart  2 pm

Like many ports in this part of the world, archaeological ruins dating back to antiquity are found everywhere here. There are also hundreds of gorges and over 1,500 land and sea caves.

Day 12: At Sea: 

For big, bold flavours, try Tuscan Grille – our speciality ristorante and enoteca. Regional Italian wines, succulent dry aged steaks, and outgoing service give Tuscan Grille its rustic charm.

Day 13: Civitavecchia Port, Rome, Italy: Arrive 5 am

On arrival, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight back to Dublin.

12 Nights aboard the 5 Star Celebrity Silhouette, operated by Celebrity Cruises. (See the ship info tab for more information on Celebrity Silhouette Solstice Class of ship)
