Itinerary

The Vision of the Seas departs from Valletta at 17:00 hrs.

Fun day at sea.

A top European center for art, architecture, design and cuisine, this stylish city has its own language and culture. The soul of old Barcelona is its Gothic Quarter; outside the medieval district, discover iconic landmarks and more. Stroll along Las Ramblas, a wonderfully vibrant part of the city where street vendors and performers vie for your attention. Visit Antoni Gaudi’s unfinished Sagrada Familia. With eight soaring spires and a spectacular main façade, this cathedral is a true architectural masterpiece.

Take time to smell the roses, as you embark on an optional tour to the Fragonard Perfumery in Grasse, the Riviera’s most fragrant town, followed by a visit to a walled medieval town. You’ll visit one of two iconic perfume factories and learn how fragrances are created. Then you will travel to St. Paul de Vence for a walking tour of the historic medieval village. You will return back to the ship in time for lunch. In the afternoon, you can then disembark on your own, again by taking the tender boat, to discover the romantic resort town of Cannes.

Packed with houses in pink, yellow and amber, La Spezia’s your gateway to Le Cinque Terre region and drop dead gorgeous Portofino. Prepare to be enchanted.

Take an optional bus transfer to the Rome and spend the exploring the city. Once dropped off in central Rome, your tour escort will give you a brief explanation of the surroundings and supply you with the information regarding the main highlights that this imperial city has to offer. Discover the famous monuments, churches, palaces and fountains of this truly wonderful capital. After some hours of free time, to wander around the many shops or sample some local delicacies, you will meet again at the agreed point for the bus to take you back to the ship.

See the best of Athens on an optional panoramic drive of the city. Board a comfortable coach for a narrated tour covering both modern and ancient attractions, including the Academy, Hadrian’s Arch, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the National Gardens, and a stop at the pedestrian zone below the majestic Acropolis. Conclude with some free time for shopping in the many clothing boutiques and souvenir & specialty shops or people watching in one of the cafés in the picturesque Plaka, the city’s most ancient and vividly colourful neighbourhood. You will then return to the ship for lunch.

One of the most popular Greek islands is Mykonos. It is a mix of sun, fun, glamour and tradition. Relax at a beach or wander around the maze-like streets of this scenic port-town. We will not be organising an excursion in this port, since once you will be dropped off by the tender boat, you will find yourself immediately in Mykonos town, where everything is within walking distance. However, should you wish, Royal Caribbean organises a selection of excursions at this port which you can book. If for some reason, you will be docked at Tourlos port instead of being by tender, there will be shuttle bus (extra) to take you to Mykonos Town.

Step into the volcanic landscape and white washed villages on an optional half-day guided adventure, to discover one of the most beautiful islands in the world - Santorini. Upon your arrival, you will disembark by tender boats at the port where the coaches will be waiting to take you to the island’s highest peak, Mt Profitis Elias. Brief photo stop, before you head to Oia. Enjoy the traditional Cycladic architecture with its beautiful old mansions and houses perched on the cliff side, fine shops, cafes and domed churches. From there, you will drive to Fira town, the picturesque capital of the island, built on the rim of the caldera wall. Some free time, before you will return to the port to catch the tender boat back to the ship, either by taking a cable car (not included) or on foot walking down a lot of serpentine steps.

Fun day at sea.

The ship docks in Valletta at approx 07:00 hrs.
