Itinerary

  • DAY 1 UK to Venice
  • ​You'll depart on your scheduled flight to Venice today, where we'll transfer you to your ship. Settle into your comfortable cabin before meeting up with your fellow travellers and the crew to enjoy a welcome cocktail reception and dinner on board.
  • DAY 2 Venice
  • ​Today's the day that you have the opportunity to get to know Venice during an optional guided tour of its many highlights. We'll begin in its most famous spot, St Mark's Square, where we'll see its crowning glory, the stunning St Mark's Basilica. We'll also view the iconic Doge's Palace, once the centre of power from where the Venetian people were ruled.
    After heading back to the ship for lunch, why not join an afternoon optional excursion to the nearby islands of Murano and Burano. This cruise in the company of a Specialist Local Guide begins as you set foot on Murano, which is famous the world over for its exquisite glassware. Next, we head to Burano, known for the lovely lace that is produced here.
    Back on board the ship an evening of entertainment is the perfect accompaniment to dinner and an overnight stay in this exceptional floating city.
  • DAY 3 Venice
  • ​If you choose to join today's optional shore excursion you'll learn about two of Venice's unique specialities. Firstly we'll visit a gondola boatyard to see how these elegant vessels are made by skilled craftsmen using traditional methods. Before cruising through the lagoon, we'll then join a Venetian carnival mask-making workshop, where we'll learn about the history of one of Venice's most iconic exports. 
    The afternoon has been left free for you to explore further with your fellow travellers. Why not take a seat at a café and watch the world go by or maybe treat yourself to a gondola ride on the Grand Canal.
  • DAY 4 Chioggia
  • ​We'll once again cruise across the magnificent Venetian Lagoon today as we make our way to Chioggia, arriving mid-morning.
    There's time to head ashore to explore this charming coastal city before setting off on an optional visit to Padua. We'll explore this historic city on foot, taking in its medieval marketplaces and the Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua – a fascinating Roman Catholic church that serves as a place of pilgrimage for people visiting from all over the world.
    Back on board the ship this evening, there's the chance to get dressed up for a memorable gala evening. ​
