Day 9: Venice (B) 

Enjoy your cruise holiday in Venice walking in Piazza San Marco: the only piazza in Venice, all other squares being campi or campielli. Its parades, festivities and markets have always drawn visitors, the biggest attraction once being the trade fair known as the Fiera della Sensa, which kept the Piazza buzzing for the fortnight following the Ascension Day ceremony of the Marriage of Venice to the Sea; nowadays the Piazza is the focal point of the Carnevale shenanigans. 

Transfer to the cruise terminal to board your cruise in the evening. Welcome aboard MSC Lirica.

Day 10: Port of Call – Bari, Italy (B,D) cruise-icon

On arriving in the heart of Bari’s old city, you find the Basilica di San Nicola, consecrated in 1197 to house the relics of the saint plundered a century earlier from southern Turkey via Mediterranean Sea. The real beauty of the church lies in its stonework, but best of all is the twelfth-century episcopal throne behind the altar, a superb piece of work supported by small figures wheezing beneath its weight.

Day 11: At Sea (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Enjoy the day at sea as we sail to Greece through the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Day 12: Mykonos, Greece  (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Mýkonos is the quintessential image of the Cyclades. In summer most people head out to the beaches during the day, so early morning or late afternoon are the best times to wander the maze of narrow streets.

Day 13: Heraklion, Greece (B,L,D) cruise-icon

The best way to arrive in Iráklion is from the sea on an MSC cruise ship. It’s the traditional approach and is still the one that shows the city in its best light, with Mount Yioúhtas rising behind, the heights of the Psilorítis range to the west and, as you get closer, the great fortress guarding the harbour entrance and the city walls encircling and dominating the oldest part of town.

Day 14: Corfu, Greece (B,L,D) cruise-icon

Corfu Town comprises a number of distinct areas. The Historic Centre, the area enclosed by the Old Port and the two forts, consists of several smaller districts: Campiello, the oldest, sits on the hill above the harbour; Kofinéta stretches towards the Spianádha (Esplanade); Áyii Apóstoli runs west of the Mitrópolis (Orthodox cathedral); while tucked in beside the Néo Froúrio is what remains of the old Jewish quarter.

Day 15: Dubrovnik, Croatia (B,L,D) cruise-icon

A walled, sea-battered city lying at the foot of a grizzled mountain, Dubrovnik is Croatia’s most popular cruise destination, and it’s not difficult to see why. Waiting to be valued on an MSC Mediterranean cruise excursion its essentially medieval town was reshaped by Baroque planners after a disastrous earthquake of 1667; Dubrovnik’s historic core seems to have been suspended in time ever since.

Day 16: Venice, Italy –airplane-takeoff– Australia (B)

Disembark from the cruise. After breakfast enjoy the morning at leisure before you are transferred to Venice airport to board your homebound flight. As an option, you can extend your trip to Dubai for 3 nights.

Day 17: Australia

Arrive home.
