Rome to Athens Cruise 2020 (July 18–26)

Immerse in the colorful history of some of Europe’s most storied Mediterranean cities with this cruise, covering three countries in nine days.

Valletta, Malta

Fans of the HBO series Game of Thrones will recognize this historic city as one of the filming locations for King’s Landing—here you can tour of some of the sites filmed in the show. Explore the streets of Mdina, a medieval walled city where loud noises and cars are strictly limited, earning it the nickname “the silent city.” Then, see the Verdala Palace, the official summer residence of the president of Malta built in the 16th century.

Argostoli, Greece

Nestled within Cephalonia is Argostoli, the capital city of this lesser-traveled Greek island. An incredible sight awaits within Melissani Lake, a subterranean wonder filled with azure waters fed from underground streams. Tour the lake by boat, entering the cave and then traveling through a narrow channel with walls of intriguing stalactites.

Barcelona to Lisbon 2020 (June 18–25)

From Spain to the northernmost part of Africa, this cruise, covering two continents and three countries, will take members on a whirlwind of culture, history, and food.

Casablanca, Morocco

When most people hear “Casablanca,” they think of the famed 1942 movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. But this coastal city has so much more to offer, from the Hassan II Mosque, one of the only mosques open to non-Muslims to tour, to the Habous Quarter, where souks and shops await. Plus, fans of Casablanca can stop by Rick’s Café, an American-owned eatery inspired by the film.

Cádiz, Spain

One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the Western world, Cádiz is steeped in history. Here, a coach tour awaits, complete with stops at the city’s Old Town, full of Moorish architecture, and at a traditional flamenco performance, where delicious tapas will be served.

Athens to Athens 2020 (July 18–26)

Dive deep into the picturesque Greek Isles as you set sail with Inspirato around the Mediterranean.

Symi, Greece

Once a mecca of shipbuilding and sponge diving, this delightful little island offers stunning views and plenty of charm. Take in the ruins of 20 windmills as well as a photo op of the island’s turquoise waters atop Noulias Hill. Symi is a rare stop for cruise ships—relish this exclusive port as you stroll among the island’s colorful neoclassical homes and get a taste of local life.

Crete, Greece

If you’re familiar with mythology, you might recognize the name of this island—according to the Greeks, Crete is where Zeus, the god of sky and thunder, was born. Take an off-road Jeep tour to fully explore this enchanting island, which is the largest in Greece. Along the way, stop to sample wines and cheese at Manousakis Winery, a family-owned vineyard that’s been passed down through generations.
