Day to Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Barcelona, Spain: Depart 13.30

Barcelona is Spain’s second-largest city and the capital of the Catalonia region.
Lying along the Mediterranean coast, Barcelona is the leading industrial and financial centre of Spain as well as its main trade and tourist port.

To the northwest, a set of hills run parallel to the coast and in the southwest, the old town lies along the port divided by attractive tree-lined boulevards known as Las Ramblas.
Barcelona is a wonderfully vibrant city and, having been a cultural and artistic centre since the Middle Ages, really makes for a fantastic day away from your luxury cruise liner. With so much to see and do you are guaranteed to have a memorable day off ship.

Day 2: Genoa, Italy: Arrive 09.00 Depart 17.00

Cradled between land and sea and with a working port, the Italian vacation destination of Genoa on the west coast of Italy displays its past through her many palaces and the surrounding ancient terraced hills. Genoa has many different faces; at once a modern metropolis and a rigorous custodian of artistic heritage, as well as an industrious marketplace with centuries-old parks perfect for relaxation.


Day 3: Marseilles, France: Arrive 09.00 Depart 18.00

Whether it is basking in the Mediterranean sunshine or being cooled by the famous Mistral wind France’s second-largest city and the capital of the Provence- Côte d’Azur region, is always a fascinating place to visit and a wonderful place for a leisurely lunch.

As France’s most important port, Marseille boasts connections with Africa, Italy and Spain. The strong mistral wind blows away all traces of pollution and provides a clarity of air so pure that many famous artists have been attracted to the city: Cézanne; Braque; Derain; Dufy and Marquet.


Day 4: Barcelona, Spain: Disembark 10.00


Your cruise ends today with your arrival in Barcelona. Disembarkation begins after breakfast, after which you will be transferred to the city centre where you can store your luggage securely and explore this fantastic city before you are collected and transferred to the airport for your evening flight back to Dublin.
