The 10th anniversary on board
Royal Caribbean’s and the elegant
‘Explorer of the Seas’.
Sailing out of Rome, The Cruise takes you on
a legendary journey to incredible
Croatia and alluring Albania.
Civitavecchia, the port of the eternal city, serves as the start and final port on this epic cruise. Rome, which was found at 753 BC, is located in the central western part of Italy, along the shores of the Tiber.
With it’s 4.3 million habitants, it is the fourth most populous city in the European Union. Offering a mix of ancient ruins, jaw-dropping art, delicious cuisine and vibrant street life, Italy’s capital is an amazing city to be discovered.
The Pantheon, Roman Forum, the Colosseum, Trevi fountain and Vatican remind us that Rome was once the capital of the world and still is the seat of the Catholic Church. The Vatican, the smallest country in the world, is an independent country inside the city boundaries, which is why Rome has often been defined as the capital of two states. With the historic centre being listed on the UNESCO world heritage site, Rome is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world.

Dubrovnik, formerly also named Ragusa is the glittering pearl of the Adriatic. It is hard not to be impressed by the baroque buildings, the limestone streets and it’s rich history.
The city issituated on the southern coast of Croatia. Its location on the Adriatic Sea and its Old City are both alluring for travelers. The Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was founded in the 7th century and the prosperity of the city was based on maritime trade.
However it got severely damaged in 1990, after the break-up of Yugoslavia when the Serbs and Montenegrins bombed the region. Dubrovnik has worked hard to restore the damaged areas back to their original magnificence, and tourists have now returned to a peaceful and tranquil region. Take a trip back in time and be marvelled.
Kotor, wedged in a spectacular 28 km bay between the black peaked Orjen and Lovcen mountains, is a place where history and the present coexist.
The sail into the bay is considered one of the most scenic in the world and is definitely the highlight of our trip. This city of traders and famous sailors has a lot of stories to tell.
Kotor, built between the 12th and 14th century is a medieval maze of backstreets, churches, palaces and squares, where one can get lost for hours. Medieval buildings and rich cultural heritage make that Kotor is now on the UNESCO world heritage list. Further nestled in the bay you find Perast, and the Lady of the Rocks, renowned to be the most sensational spots in Kotor.
At the moment of the creation of our planet, the most beautiful merging of land and sea occurred at the Montenegrin seaside and today we discover why.
Split is the second-largest city in Croatia, situated on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. Famous for its idyllic beaches, white sands and turquoise waters as well as its cultural heritage.
Split is perhaps best known for being home to Diocletian’s palace, built by the Roman emperor in 305 CE, and designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. A walk through Split is a treat for the eye and as we submerge in the old city, we understand why Split is a popular film location.
It is an amazing mix of old and new in a unique setting. Croatia’s coast is a natural wonder, especially around Split, where islands serve as a barrier to keep the clean waters calm and clean. Various of these islands and caves can be visited on a daytrip.
Saranda is the undiscovered gem in the sometimes overcrowded Mediterranen. It is a coastal town in Albania, by the Ionian Sea, counting roughly 50.000 inhabitants.
Saranda getsits name from the Byzantine monastery of the Agioi Saranda, meaning the "Forty Saints", in honor of the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste. It is considered the unofficia capital of the Albanian Riviera where one is awed by the countless bays, beaches, the rocky coastline, hills with olives and citrus and dramatic mountains that surround the landscape.
With various dreamlike beaches and over 300 sunny days a year, this is a summer hot-spot waiting to be discovered. Near Saranda the ancient ruins of Butrint, a UNESCO, World Heritage await to be discovered.
Slow down, relax, and lounge in the sun.
