Ocean cruise

This superb itinerary pairs the many delights of the western Mediterranean aboard Celebrity Reflection. It all begins and ends in the Catalonian city of Barcelona with its tucked-away tapas bars and glorious Gaudi-designed architecture. You’ll then sail east along the sun-kissed Mediterranean, pausing in pretty Provence and soaking up the glamour of the Cote d’Azur. After dropping into Corsica, cross into Italy to explore the charming towns of the Italian Riviera, the Renaissance treasures of Tuscany and the unique beauty of the Amalfi Coast - all set to a backdrop of expert-led guided tours.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK/Barcelona, Spain

Begin your holiday in style with included UK airport lounge access before your flight to Barcelona. On arrival, transfer to the port where you’ll board Celebrity Beyond for a 5pm departure, settling into your stylish accommodation setting sail towards France. Arriving early? Take the chance to explore this ever-popular Catalan city, from its hidden tapas bars to its spectacular architecture, characterised by the whimsical style of Gaudi.

Day 2
Provence, France

Having sailed overnight, you’ll arrive in Marseille, the bustling gateway to France’s Provence region. Choose from a range of excursions, perhaps taking in historic villages and hilltop towns accompanied by the likes of olive oil tastings or a visit to the lavender museum. Otherwise, visit Aix en Provence for a gourmet walking tour, try your hand at kayaking or cycling, or explore the sights of Marseille itself, either on foot or with an open-top bus tour.

Day 3
Nice (Villefranche)

Arrive in Nice for a day or glamour on the Cote d’Azur. Options here include an introductory tour of Monaco, a Nice city sightseeing tour or an expert-led exploration of the quiet towns of Eze or St Paul-de-Vence. A wine tasting experience is a delightful way to spend a sun-soaked day, or why not splash out with a coastal road trip in a classic Ferrari or Lamborghini.

Day 4
Ajaccio, Corsica

On the West coast of Corsica lies Ajaccio, the island’s largest town. Replete with all the charm and sophistication one would expect of a French Mediterranean resort—palm trees, sandy beaches, bountiful shopping, beautiful marina and colorful cafes, bars and bistros—you would not be amiss to liken Ajaccio to the more well-known South-of-France hotspots, such as the Cote d'Azur or Cap d'Antibes.

A great place to start your investigation of Ajaccio on your Corsica cruise is to stroll down to the Maison Napoleon, the eponymous birthplace of the iconic French military leader, and the nearby cathedral where he was christened. Famed for being Napoleon Bonaparte's birthplace, Ajaccio tips its hat to its most famous and storied resident throughout town, from his childhood home to seafront statues, museums, and street names. Take a scenic tour to the Austerlitz Square, Iles Sanguinaires viewpoint and the narrow, picturesque streets of old Ajaccio.

Stay: Celebrity Reflection


Day 5
Santa Margherita, Italy

Onto Italy, the land of La Dolce Vita. Dropping anchor in Santa Margherita, you’ll have access to one of the country’s most beautiful coastal regions with the likes of celebrity-favourite Portofino and the colourful villages of Cinque Terre on the doorstep. There’s the chance to delve into the gastronomic scene in Rapallo, including a market visit and a cooking class in the company of a local guide and chef. Or, head to historic Genoa to explore its stunning architecture and tangle of alleyways.

Day 6
Florence/Pisa (La Spezia)

Your Italian odyssey continues today with an exploration of Tuscany, arguably Italy’s most picturesque province. Perhaps you’ll head into the rolling hills of its vineyard-dotted countryside to visit an authentic farmhouse where a horse-drawn tour and produce tasting awaits. Alternatively, look to Florence’s Renaissance treasures or head to Pisa for a trolley tour and to learn about the history of its famous leaning tower.

La Spezia itself, lies between Genoa and Pisa, and is just minutes to the east of Cinque Terre-the five fishing ports that enjoy National Park status-is home to the Palio del Golfo, an annual boat race that sees the Gulf of Poets; 13 historic villages face off against one another in celebration of the annual Festa del Mare. The town also offers fantastic shopping opportunities, as well as plenty of trattorias to enjoy local, Ligurian cuisine.

Day 7
Rome (Civitavecchia)

Civitavecchia was settled in 108 A.D. by the Emperor Trajan and has since served faithfully as a gateway to Rome, the capital of Italy. Once the center of the Ancient World from which emperors ruled over nearly all of western civilization, Rome is still a cultural mecca. Only a few cities in the world can boast such a well-preserved level of architecture, art, and religious iconography. There’s an enormous wealth of culture and history to discover on a cruise to Rome. Visit the ancient halls of the 50,000-seat Colosseum, gaze upon the ceilings of Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, and stroll the Capitoline Museum. Roman culinary prowess is well respected and beloved the world over. Experience authentic pizza, hearty bowls of fresh pasta, excellent cheeses, wines, seafood, and delightful desserts like tiramisu and gelato at family-run trattorias that have been preparing these traditional dishes for centuries. Walk the cobblestoned piazzas making your way to narrow side streets where you’re sure to find craftsman shops and beautiful boutiques filled with gorgeous handmade accessories and homewares for keepsakes and souvenirs.

Day 8
Naples & the Amalfi Coast

From the pretty cliff-side villages of the Amalfi Coast to the iconic ruins of Pompeii, today will see you explore one of Italy’s most iconic regions. Here, you’ll have the chance to explore those famous ruins in the company of an expert guide, enjoy the area’s bounteous produce through an exclusive wine tasting or street food tour, or take in the picture-perfect delights of the coast itself on a drive to Sorrento.  Or simply explore Naples, which is framed by Mount Vesuvius along a dramatic skyline. This 2,800 year-old port city of Naples is chock full of historical sites, churches, and museums that make it a fascinating place for you to explore. Visit the Museo Archeologico Nazionale for a world-class collection of Egyptian and Graeco-Roman artifacts. And, if you’d like to venture a little deeper on your Naples cruise, then exploring Naples from below the ground is a must. Start with a trip into the basement of the San Lorenzo Maggiore church where you’ll find a partially excavated Roman market and a little deeper, just below the Roman ruins, you’ll find remnants from the Greeks to discover. And in the region where pizza was first invented, you know the food is going to be incredible. Whether you’re looking for a thin, wood-fired Margherita pie, spaghetti alle vongole or a zeppole dusted with confectioner’s sugar, Naples and her bountiful edible treasures is sure to please.
