Travel to Italy
Depart Dublin Airport for your flight to Venice. Upon arrival, you will be met by your friendly local guide who will assist you in the transfer to your hotel in Venice’s Mestre district. Settle in at your hotel and get to know your fellow travellers over dinner in a local restaurant
After breakfast you will be transferred to Piazza San Marco by boat for a half day city tour of Venice. No matter how often you've seen it in photos, Venice in real life is more dreamlike than you could imagine. With canals where streets should be, water shimmers everywhere, the fabulous palaces and churches reflect centuries of history. The afternoon is free for sightseeing. Then you will be transferred back to Venice Mestre for a further overnight stay and evening meal.
Enjoy a guided coach transfer from the hotel to Venice port. Embark the Norwegian Star for your 7 night cruise on a full board basis. Settle into your cabin and explore the range of facilities on board the Norwegian Star as you embark on your cruise along the Greek Isles. This afternoon, set sail towards Kotor.
This afternoon we will arrive in Kotor. Tucked away between the mountains and the bay, one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea, is where you'll find the picturesque town of Kotor. As you arrive at the city, you'll notice the dramatic 65-foot high protective walls, which date back to the Venetian period during the 9th century. Stroll the labyrinth of cobbled streets with cozy cafes and craft shops as you marvel at the graceful old buildings. This evening you will depart Kotor and set sail for Corfu (Greece).
This morning you will arrive in Corfu, one of the lushest of the Greek Isles. Corfu is rimmed in dramatic blue waters and topped with tranquil hillside villages. A collection of quaint cafes in the town of Corfu feels very continental, but the island's secluded coves and sandy beaches could only be found in the Greek Isles.
Santorini Island (Greece)
The sight of spectacular Santorini will take your breath away. Sun-kissed beaches, cobalt seas, dazzling white houses, bright blue domes and dramatic volcanic mountains. Wander in lovely villages with narrow streets and winding steps, tasting a meze, Greek wine or pastry along the way. Secluded coves, hot springs and ancient settlements only increase the charms of this stunning island. In the evening, you will depart for Mykonos, arriving around 08:00 hrs the next day.
Mykonos is a classic Greek Island with whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and windmills. Add a reputation for beautiful beaches and you'll understand why Mykonos is the most popular island in the Cyclades. In the afternoon we will depart for Dubrovnik and spend the next day at Sea.
Argostoli, Kelfalonia (Greece)
Today arrive into Argostoli, capital of the island of Kelfalonia, a picturesque gem on Greece’s west coast. Admire the beautiful church of Saint Spyridon and the interesting clock tower of Campana Square. Wander the paved streets filled with shops and enjoy the lively atmosphere of this beautiful town, or maybe grab something to eat in one of the town’s many traditional restaurants.
In the morning you will arrive in Dubrovnik, a UNESCO world heritage treasure. Walk the city’s fabled ancient walls for spectacular views of the coast, be overawed by the magnificent marble streets and Baroque buildings or soak up sea and sun on the beautiful beaches. Cliff side cafes, live music, sun, what else could you need?
In the early afternoon, you will depart Dubrovnik and set sail for Venice.
