About

Recommended for:
Ocean cruise | Rail journey

Let piano-accompanied drinks and multi-course delights see you over the French Alps aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express for a night in a Venetian palace and cruise on a boutique yacht. With 112 privileged passengers served by a nearly 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio, its small size means that you’ll be able to access lesser-visited ports, like picturesque Hvar and idyllic Fiskardo. That’s alongside the headlines of Dubrovnik, the Croatian island of Vis, Capri and Corfu. Each day, you’ll have the use of kayaks, sailboats and water-skiing in the ship’s water-sports marina as well as the spa, pool and freshwater jacuzzi.


Day by day itinerary

Day 1
London to Venice: Venice Simplon-Orient-Express

Boarding the Belmond British Pullman in London Victoria, your white-gloved steward will see you to your seat – a wingback armchair set among fine Art-Deco detailing. These are carriages that have hosted royalty and heads of state, from Winston Churchill to the Queen Mother. You’ll also be treated to brunch and a bellini cocktail as rural Kent rushes by. Then, after a channel tunnel hop, you’ll board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, your personal attendant bringing to your immaculate cabin, all polished wood and brass fixture. There’s then time to admire the view and change for dinner, with the likes of lobster fineries served up over four courses. Before retiring to the crisp damask sheets of your bed, be sure to cap it all off with a piano-accompanied drink in the grand bar car.

Stay: Venice Simplon-Orient-Express (Deluxe)

Meals: L D

Days 2-3
Venice, Italy

You’ll wake in the morning to dramatic Alpine scenery and a continental breakfast, served in the intimacy of your cabin. Then, whether relaxing in your cabin or mingling with guests in the bar car, you’ll be treated to yet more gorgeous views, along with a three-course lunch and an afternoon tea. You’ll then roll over the Venetian Lagoon to be met by a private water taxi, heading along the Grand Canal to your luxury hotel’s private pier. It’s a historic Venetian palace, whose frescoes and ballroom are set right among the city’s delights. Venice’s gondola punts, café culture and grand palazzos are right on its doorstep, ready to explore over two days.

Stay: Baglioni Hotel Luna, Venice (Deluxe)

Meals: B L

Day 4
Venice

After breakfast, a private water taxi will again see you through Venice’s canal-way maze, this time to your luxury yacht. Settle in to your marbled stateroom to enjoy the ocean views, along with the complimentary minibar and room service. The all-inclusive fineries also extend to the fine dining, often taken al fresco, and the open bars, with the live music and cocktails of the Top of the Yacht bar a special favourite. On deck, there’s also everything from pool and Jacuzzi soaks to complimentary yoga and Balinese beds. Don’t also forget the casino, piano bar and library. There’s even a golf simulator, while the sauna and well-equipped fitness centre offer more traditional relaxation.

Stay: SeaDream II (Deluxe)

Meals: D

Day 5
Hvar, Croatia

You'll dock today in Hvar, a picturesque Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. Characterised by fresh water springs, verdant pine forests, sun-drenched vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields, the island lends itself to leisurely walks or bike rides across its interior. Optional excursions include kayak paddles down the coastline or a hike to the fortress for incredible views of the harbour below. Back on board, enjoy a drink in the Piano Bar before dinner in the restaurant.

Stay: SeaDream II (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 6
Vis Island, Croatia

Having been annexed for much of the late 20th century, the island of Vis has been immaculately preserved, from its charming stone architecture to its beaches, considered some of the finest in all of Croatia. As the furthest inhabited island from the Croatian mainland, it’s a remote delight, with highlights including the dramatic Blue Cave and its very own varietal of wine. Don’t forget to sample the fantastic seafood on offer. 

Stay: SeaDream II (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 7
Dubrovnik, Croatia

Today you'll arrive in Dubrovnik, perhaps the most iconic port in the Adriatic. This UNESCO-listed jewel is a vision of terracotta-capped old town, surrounded by imposing-yet-walkable medieval walls. It’s all set between glittering seas and imposing mountains, backdropping everything from grand Baroque architecture to winding laneways. There's plenty to do here, from strolling along the Old Town’s Stradun to guided tours of filming locations from HBO’s Game of Thrones. For the adventurous at heart, take a kayak tour to a hidden beach cave and the island of Lokrum. 

Stay: SeaDream II (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Days 8-9
Corfu, Greece

In the heart of the Ionian Sea, Corfu is a cosmopolitan island dotted with seaside towns, tiny islets, glamorous resorts and rolling green countryside. Its Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, perfect for exploring on foot or by bike. Visit the bustling Esplanade Square, lined with cafes, or if you're seeking relaxation, escape to the golden sands of Glyfada Beach and the turquoise waters of Paleokastritsa. You have two days here, so don't miss the opportunity to visit the grand Achillion Palace, the summer palace of Austria’s Empress Elizabeth.

Stay: SeaDream II (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 10
Fiskardo, Greece

Today you'll arrive among the pastel-coloured buildings and sparkling waterfront of Fiskardo in Kefalonia. There is a small beach located near the harbour, but a short stroll will see you to some of the the prettiest bays in the area – such as Foki Beach, a pebble bay on the edge of the forest. Take a dip in the calm waters and try a famous pie from the local Taverna nearby. And, there are plenty of viewpoints dotted around the village, with lovely views of the Ionian Sea and nearby islands. 

Stay: SeaDream II (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 11
Sea Day

Relax onboard SeaDream II today with a day spent at sea. Try a morning yoga class or take a swim in the saltwater pool followed by an indulgent soak in the freshwater Jacuzzi. If you're keen to stay active, visit the onboard fitness centre before enjoying a casual lunch by the pool at the Top of the Yacht bar. This afternoon, play a round of golf in the air-conditioned simulator before another delicious multi-course dinner.

Stay: SeaDream II

Meals: B L D

Day 12
Taormina (Etna) Sicily, Italy

Today you'll drop anchor in the bay of Giardini Naxos with views across to Mount Etna. A shuttle bus service will take you to the gates of Taormina town, perched on the cliffside, or if you prefer, a hike or bike ride can take you up to Castelmola to take in the scenery and surrounds. Excursions available here include the chance to ascend Mount Etna or enjoy a traditional feast at the Godfather Villa. If weather permits, watersports will be available from the ship's onboard marina – including paddleboarding, kayaking and wakeboarding.

Stay: SeaDream II (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 13
Capri, Italy

In the Tyrrhenian Sea, on the south side of the bay of Naples, lies Capri. Today you'll have the chance to explore this beautiful port at your leisure, strolling among whitewashed buildings and glamorous boutiques or enjoying a glass of wine overlooking the ocean. There's opportunity to take a full tour of everything the island has to offer, including the Grotto Azzura and the Faraglioni rocks, with your fellow guests. Or, take one of the recommend hikes to see Capri's scenery up close.

Stay: SeaDream II (Deluxe)

Meals: B L D

Day 14
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy to UK

You'll disembark SeaDream II today in Civitavecchia, gateway to Rome. From here, take a morning stroll before transferring to the airport for your flight back to the UK. If you have the time, perhaps extend your trip with a stay among the majestic ruins of the Eternal City.
