9 Night cruise sailing from Rome to Venice onboard Crystal Symphony.

Journey around the heel of Italy and onwards around the Mediterranean. Start off the coast of Rome, exploring Naples, the birthplace of Italian pizza and picturesque Giardini Naxos, before some beach relaxation in stunning Corfu, Greece. Then, traverse the Adriatic with stops in Kotor and a Croatian immersion in Dubrovnik and its smaller sibling Split. Finally, end your remarkable journey in the colorful Venice.

Highlights of this cruise:

Venture through Civitavecchia, noted for its fine seafood and beautiful monuments. Then, travel to the Eternal City of Rome, with more than 2,500 years of history and ancient landmarks that will leave you with memories for a lifetime.

Dubrovnik is one of the most recognizable cities in Europe. Behind the walls, find sleek Venetian-style buildings and a rich Slavic culture. Home to lavender, olive oil, and gorgeous beaches, Dubrovnik will leave a lasting impression on all your senses.

One of the world`s most enchanting cities, Venice is comprised of more than 100 separate islands and a labyrinthine of canals laced together by a string of 400 intricate bridges. A whimsical stroll through the city leads to a hidden world of ornately decorated piazzas and a legacy of Baroque architecture. Admire the richness of St. Mark`s Basilica and the lavishness of the Palazzo Ducale.

It begins the moment you embark. An immersion into luxurious wonder. An extraordinary sense of well-being. The Crystal Symphony is one of the most spacious and luxurious cruise ships at sea. Onboard amenities feature grand lounges, a full-service fitness facility, exciting casino, a lavish spa, expansive decks, a swimming pool with an extra-large Jacuzzi, award-winning cuisine and entertainment. To top it off, exquisitely-appointed staterooms, more than half of which offer private verandahs. Considered to be the finest shipboard staff afloat, it is their goal to anticipate your every need and to make this a vacation to remember.
