There are of course no shortages of cruise vessels plying the major ports and cities of the Mediterranean, but few are inclined to focus on the islands as we have done with this delightful journey from Mallorca to Malta aboard the MS Hebridean Sky. We have timed our voyage for late summer when the crowds of August will have departed and the temperatures will be pleasant for our guided tours, and your enjoyment and understanding of the history of the island will be greatly enhanced by our expert local guides and onboard Guest Speaker.
The first part of our itinerary has been designed to combine time on the islands of the Balearics, Sardinia, Corsica, Elba and Ponza, all of which are easy to visit individually but difficult to combine independently. We will visit the main sites and also explore some of the smaller ports and less visited destinations and we have ensured that each day has an enjoyable mix of culture with some time at leisure for independent exploration. For the second part of our voyage we will journey from Naples along the Amalfi coast to Salerno from where we explore this beautiful region of Italy. Continuing on to the island of Sicily we have seven days to discover this unique island with its rich heritage and wealth of ancient sites.
In addition to exploring fascinating ports of call we have the pleasure of cruising aboard the MS Hebridean Sky. From time to time we may pass a huge cruise liner and at moments like this we can be thankful that with just 118 passengers, we are able to visit atmospheric ports and villages which the big ships cannot access. We will discover timeless islands with their aura of history, unique island lifestyles and spectacular beauty which will capture our hearts as we travel across the Mediterranean.
