The Cruise

Cruise09map Naturally, there are ancient cities, castles, museums and cobblestone streets at every turn. And the boutiques down the street are waiting to be discovered. Experience Europe the way you've always dreamed from your balcony stateroom on the Norwegian Jade this Fall. You will drive by landmarks such as Trajan's Column, the Arch of Constantine, Circus Maximus, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. If there is one memory you will take home with you, it is of drifting through Venice's canals on a gondola as darkened waters lap your boat and music melts on the air. A scenic drive, of Amalfi coast then on to Pompeii, where you'll visit the Roman resort buried by volcanic ash. Plaster casts mark the positions of the fallen, who were swiftly overcome by the ashes. Have the opportunity to admire some of the most important sites of Athens, including the Acropolis - one of the most photographed and recognizable hills in the entire world. Drive through the Turkish countryside along a hilly road to arrive at the House of Virgin Mary - the site where the Blessed Virgin is reputed to have spent the last years of her life. This trip will be one of a lifetime to remember
