“From time to time we may pass a huge cruise liner and at moments like this we can be thankful that we are able to visit atmospheric ports and villages which the big ships cannot access.”
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 Naples aboard the MS Hebridean Sky. Our intention has been to design a voyage as if it were to be undertaken on a small private yacht, staying away from the larger commercial centres and concentrating on some of the most picturesque and interesting places in the region.
Late summer is the perfect time for our voyage, when the crowds of August have dispersed but the weather is perfect for touring and sightseeing. We have created our itinerary to combine time in the islands of the Balearics, Sardinia, Corsica and Elba, all of which are easy to visit individually but difficult to combine independently, before ending our voyage in Naples with an afternoon exploration of Herculaneum. We will have time on each island to see the main sites but also to explore some of the smaller ports and less visited destinations and have ensured that each day has an enjoyable mix of culture with some time at leisure for independent exploration.
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 a less well trodden path across the Mediterranean.
Please Note: This voyage can be combined with Mallorca to Malta 19th September to 4th October 2021 Voyage. Please contact us for more details.
