Art, culture and Mediterranean joie de vivre: Rome, Italy to Barcelona, Spain
MS Europa 2 Voyage 1522 - August 8-15, 2015

The discoveries waiting for you on Italian, French and Spanish shores are as inspiring as the coastlines are picturesque. A fascinating cruise that takes in the many facets of the Mediterranean. The islands of Capri, Corsica and Menorca are inviting with their amazing panoramas, bizarre cliff coastlines and idyllic underwater worlds. Cartagena with its chequered past and Valencia – time honoured and modern – line your route to Barcelona, where your cruise will draw to a close.

Highlights of this cruise:

  • The embodiment of romanticism: Capri and the magically illuminated Blue Grotto.
  • Explore Cartagena on a Segway**.
  • Futuristic: explore the City of Arts and Sciences** in Valencia.

** The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to changes.

Date Destination
Saturday 08-Aug-2015 Embarkation of the MS Europa 2 in Civitavecchia (Rome)/Italy, departure 21.00 hrs 
Sunday 09-Aug-2015 Capri/Italy, 10.00 – 18.00 hrs 
A spectacular craggy coastline and a play of light: take in the island’s special atmosphere – for example, on idyllic beaches, enjoying an espresso on the promenade or on an individual boat trip to the legendary Blue Grotto.
Monday 10-Aug-2015 Bonifacio/Corsica/France, 9.00 – 17.00 hrs 
The houses in the old part of town sitting above the craggy coastline like a natural balcony, and the Esplanade Saint Francois in the upper town offers a magnificent view over the countryside surrounding Bonifacio and of the octagonal bell tower of the Gothic Saint Dominique church. All the aspects of this lovely town will be revealed to you on a city walking tour with a boat trip**.
Tuesday 11-Aug-2015 Mahon/Menorca/Balearic Islands/Spain, 10.00 – 0.00 hrs 
Unspoilt nature and traditional villages account for the appeal of Menorca, a large part of which is protected as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. As well as lonely beaches, discover the charming historic centre of Mahon or paddle through the Bay of Fornells** on a kayak tour past tiny islands and the rocky coastline with hidden coves. The idyllic underwater world of Menorca will be revealed on a diving trip**.
Wednesday 12-Aug-2015 Relaxation at sea
Thursday 13-Aug-2015 Cartagena/Spain, 7.00 – 18.00 hrs 
The harbour city on the Costa Calida can look back over a chequered past. Follow the traces of its ancient past – for example, at the Roman theatre – and enjoy the panoramic views from the Castillo de la Concepcion. Just as magnificent is Murcia** with its landmark cathedral, which combines architectural styles from five different centuries.
Friday 14-Aug-2015 Valencia/Spain, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs 
No other city combines cultural riches and futuristic modernity quite like Valencia. The cathedral, which was built over the remains of an Arabian mosque, and the famous Mercado Central stand in contrast to the visionary side of the city. You can explore this side on a bicycle tour along the Turia River**. In the dried up river bed, an impressive glass and steel building has been erected to house the City of Arts and Sciences – designed by leading architect Santiago Calatrava.
Saturday 15-Aug-2015 Barcelona/Spain, arrival 7.00 hrs
