Spend three nights soaking up the history of the Eternal City of Rome before boarding Sapphire Princess for an epic 28 night voyage to Singapore, calling at ports in the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Asia.
Your journey begins in Rome, where you’ll spend three nights walking in the footsteps of gladiators as you explore the ruins of the Roman Forum and the Colosseum, the winding streets of Trastevere and the luxury labels that surround the Spanish Steps. Don’t miss the opportunity to try delicious Roman cuisine, from creamy pasta dishes to mouth-watering cured meats.
After three days discovering the historical delights of Rome, you’ll make your way to the port of Civitavecchia to board Sapphire Princess. Relax into the surroundings of the modern ship as you set sail to your first destination, Naples, where you can visit Capri or Pompeii. Next you’ll call at Malta, where the island’s long and turbulent history offers much to uncover. In Athens there’s the chance to climb to the top of the Acropolis for far-reaching views across the Greek capital, before visiting the island of Rhodes. Transiting the Suez Canal you’ll then call at Aqaba in Jordan and the glittering city of Dubai before crossing the Indian Ocean to Cochin in India and the teardrop-shaped island of Sri Lanka. After a stop in Kuala Lumpur your cruise ends in futuristic Singapore, where you’ll disembark for a three night stay amid the towering skyscrapers and cluttered shop houses of the eclectic city.
