Itinerary

Fri, 30.06.2017

Venice/Italy
Overnight stay on board

With more than 400 bridges and countless palazzi lining the canals, many people consider “La Serenissima” the most beautiful city in the world. Its unique highlights include St. Mark’s Square, the Doge’s Palace, the Rialto Bridge and a gondola ride through the canals*. Enjoy the city’s excellent cuisine on a culinary tour*.

Sat, 01.07.2017

Venice, departure 14.00 hrs

Sun, 02.07.2017

Relaxation at sea

Mon, 03.07.2017

Kerkyra/Corfu/Ionian Islands/Greece, 7.00 – 14.00 hrs

Lush, green and more Italian than Greek: Empress Elisabeth of Austria loved the island and had her summer palace Achilleion* built there. Active guests can explore the island on horseback*, whereas gourmets can opt for the culinary variant*.

Tue, 04.07.2017

Messina/Sicily/Italy, 10.00 – 19.00 hrs
Cruising off Stromboli late in the evening

The charms of Sicily: wander through the coastal city, perhaps taking a detour to go shopping. Alternatively, explore the volcanic landscape surrounding Etna in the cable car and all-terrain vehicles*, or visit Taormina*, which towers high above the Ionian Sea.

Wed, 05.07.2017

Capri/Italy , 12.00 – 19.00 hrs

Be it artists, politicians or writers, Capri has attracted the European jet set for over 100 years. Discover a holiday paradise bathed sunlight and which changes in colour from one hour to the next. The highlight of the island is a place without sunlight – the legendary Blue Grotto – which you can explore on your own before the EUROPA 2 cruises around the island at sunset.

Thu, 06.07.2017

Civitavecchia (Rome)/Italy , 8.00 – 20.00 hrs

All roads lead to Rome: explore the Eternal City and its sights at your own pace, on a Segway* or on a city tour*. Almost a must-see: visit the Vatican Museum*, home to the “The Creation of Adam” in the Sistine Chapel.

Fri, 07.07.2017

Bonifacio/Corsica/France , 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

As if on a balcony, the town is perched over the sea on a limestone plateau. Take a city tour through perhaps the most impressive old town in the Mediterranean. A potential alternative programme is a trip to the beach on the Iles Lavezzi*.

Sat, 08.07.2017

Portofino/Italy , 10.00 – 19.00 hrs

Rub shoulders with high society and take a stroll along the bustling seafront with its boutiques and cafes. Set off on a kayak and snorkelling* adventure to the most beautiful bays in Portofino and its fascinating underwater world.

Sun, 09.07.2017

Nice/France , 8.00 – 19.00 hrs
Monte Carlo/Monaco, arrival 21.00 hrs
Overnight stay on board

Nice
Elegant and sophisticated, the city on the Cote d’Azur is a hotspot for the international jet set alongside Monaco. Enjoy the exclusive lifestyle during a ride in a Ferrari* along the French Riviera or on an excursion to Cannes and Antibes*. Provence lies away from the glamour. The picturesque village of Saint-Paul de Vence* is situated in the heart of Provence.

Monte Carlo
Monte Carlo Casino is one of the most beautiful and famous casinos in the world. “Faites vos jeux” before your cruise comes to an end on the following day.

Mon, 10.07.2017

Testimonials

  • “I do wish to thank you, the Charge Nurse and the rest of your dialysis team. You’re doing a great service to those in need of it and who are keen to travel at the same time.  Your variety of ocean and river cruises gives all those who may be interested a wide choice of styles and destinations, while at the same time being able to rely on professional care and service in dialysis needs. Keep up the good work. Thank you once again”

    Mr Dominic Yau
  • Cruise was wonderful. We loved the Europa2  and Dr. Westerman was a delight to have do our dialysis sessions.

    Mrs S Pearl
  • We had a lovely holiday and have lots of pictures to remind us of where we went – they are on my screensaver already and are a very enjoyable reminder.  As you know I love these holidays. I am really grateful that I could have a holiday while on dialysis – it is so lovely to get away from home for more than a night!

    Mrs L Osborn
  • I’d just like to thank you and your professional Dialysis Team for making my first ever cruise experience so wonderful.  Starting from the time of booking, through the worst parts – waiting for the departure date to come around, right through until disembarkation.

    The paperwork, though comprehensive was clear and easy for myself and my home clinic nurses to complete, and your advice on what to pack for the expectations of the cruise liner took that stress away.

    It was good to meet everyone in your team and my compatriots for treatment so soon after embarkation and everything always felt like it was no problem and easily handled.  The dialysis team was totally professional at all times, but that was also complimented by their personalities which meant time on dialysis went quite quickly chatting etc.  The Nephrologist was extremely thorough at all times but was also quite amusing in her own way.  The Charge Nurse was a wealth of experience and definitely the glue bonding the team together and always available for everyone at all times.  The two nurses providing support were effective team players and knew their stuff.

    Being an accompanied cruise meant there was always someone about if you wanted a chat even on the excellent inclusive shore trips.  It was good to see the planning that went in to arranging dialysis sessions around these activities and the team were always looking to be flexible on start stop times.

    I will do this again in the future, need to save up a bit first, but would recommend it to anyone.  Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

    Mr K Summerhayes
  • I wanted to tell you that it was a wonderful cruise and thank you for all the efforts you have had in respect to the dialyses.  Everything was working at the full satisfaction.
