LASTMINUTE. CRUISE. BREAKS!

Hundreds of years back, Britain’s wealthiest young fellows flew out to Italy in fine style as a component of their social training. Gratefully, nowadays, such adventures are no longer so selective, yet they needn’t be less lavish. This remarkable agenda takes after two evenings in the ‘Unceasing City’ of Rome with an exemplary Italian voyage taking in the observed Amalfi Coast, Sicily, the Pontine Islands and the Aeolian Islands on board the awe inspiring five-masted and completely fixed Royal Clipper – a vessel which, however ultramodern in development, solace and comfort, would have been immediately natural to those ‘Grandeous Tourists’ of yesteryear….. . . .. …

Rome and a Classic Italian Cruise

Rome and a Classic Italian Cruise

Day 1 London – Rome

VIP Outbound1Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to London Heathrow Airport and a direct, scheduled British Airways flight to Rome. Upon arrival, we transfer to the Hotel Universo (4T), where dinner is included this evening.

Day 2 Rome

A full day to enjoy the ‘Eternal City’ with the opportunity to visit its historic highlights, not least the extraordinary 1st century Colosseum. A 72-hour Roma Pass has been included for your convenience during your stay in Rome, which enables free use of the public transport system and free entry to two museums and/or archaeological sites of your choice, including Colosseum and Castel Sant’Angelo where you can avoid long queues at the ticket window queue. Your local guide will be available with ideas and suggestions of how best to spend your time in Rome.

Day 3 Rome – Civitavecchia

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and a day is not enough time to experience its many attractions. So we have another morning at leisure to explore at your own pace, before we transfer to the port of Civitavecchia and the waiting Royal Clipper (4T). This breathtaking ship takes to the sea later in the evening.

Day 4 Ponza – Palmarola

We make our first port calls in the pretty Pontine Islands archipelago, scattered across the Tyrrhenian Sea off the west coast of Italy. Just remote enough to remain unspoiled, it is a joy to discover Ponza Town, with its pastel-coloured houses and traditional fishing harbour, and the exquisitely beautiful coastline of tiny Palmarola, acclaimed by Jacques Cousteau as ‘the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean’.

Day 5 Sorrento

Stunningly situated overlooking Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples, Sorrento is a most delightful pleasure resort. Shop for traditional souvenirs – intricate lacework and beautiful ceramics, or head out on an optional excursion to the poignant and perfectly preserved ancient site of Pompeii.

Day 6 Amalfi

The monumental architecture of Amalfi attests to its glorious history as a medieval maritime republic. Marvel at the Arab-Norman Cathedral in the heart of the town and the old Arsenal, now a fascinating museum; settle back with a coffee or limoncello in a bustling piazza and watch the world go by; or strike out on an optional excursion to appreciate the fabled beauty of Positano and the Amalfi Coast.

Day 7 Taormina, Sicily

Yet another Italian gem set spectacularly between rocks and sea, the Sicilian town of Taormina enchants today as it did in the 18th century, when Goethe called it ‘the greatest work of art and nature’. Make your own explorations of its many treasures – including an entrancing Greek Theatre, or join an optional excursion to breathtaking Mt Etna.

Day 8 Lipari

We sail from the shadow of Etna into an otherworldly volcanic seascape – the Aeolian Islands rise up dramatically from the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean and, after some hours to enjoy the lively town of Lipari, we cruise past the strato-volcano of Stromboli, which has been in almost continuous eruption for 2,000 years, looking out for nature’s fireworks in the sky.

Day 9 At sea

Rome-ward bound, there is time to unwind aboard Royal Clipper and reflect on an unforgettable voyage.

Day 10 Civitavecchia – Rome – London

VIP InboundAfter breakfast, we disembark and transfer to Rome Airport for a direct, scheduled British Airways flight to London Heathrow. On arrival you will be met and guided to your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.

The casually elegant Clipper Dining Room

offers one, unhurried open-seating that can accommodate all passengers and officers at the same time. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style, while dinner is a sit-down culinary celebration. A spiral staircase beginning in the Atrium ends in the heart of the three-level dining room allowing for a dramatic entrance. The atmosphere is festive but never intimidating.

Captain Nemo Underwater Lounge  Another first for any ship is the unique underwater lounge, with floodlit underwater views through submarine portholes when the ship is at anchor. This lounge is a comfortable setting for observing the marine world.

Wellness Facility  Located within the Captain Nemo Underwater Lounge, this facility pampers passengers with a spa and fitness area, massage room and a skin and body treatment center.

Piano Lounge  When passengers first arrive, they enter the ship via this grand lounge that serves as the “town square” social center. Piano tunes can be heard throughout the day and into the evening as passengers socialize, take a spin on the dance floor or get cozy in a booth and enjoy a cocktail. The glass bottom of the largest of the ship’s pools protrudes gracefully into the room, with several underwater portholes adding to the charm.

Tropical Bar  This indoor/outdoor facility is the perfect venue to enjoy the fresh sea air and a beverage while lingering on deck. A cold-buffet breakfast is served at 6 a.m. for early risers awake to watch the sun rise.

Library  Located at the aft end of Main Deck, the Library takes passengers back into a time of old-world elegance that is the perfect setting for soft conversations, quiet reading or a small meeting. Browse the volumes for the latest novel or contemplate the next move during a game of chess, bridge or backgammon. Sea views abound in this literary oasis.

Forward Observation Lounge  Passengers simply unwind with a book or pleasant conversation. The lounge also hosts cocktail receptions and lectures.

E-mail  Two computers are located in the Observation Lounge for outgoing passenger e-mail and Internet.

Watersports  Jump into the sea from the back of the ship via the marina. Passengers can take advantage of complimentary snorkeling, sunfish sailing, waterskiing and windsurfing – all without having to go ashore. Scuba diving is available for a fee, and certification is required. Three outdoor pools are located on the Sun Deck.

Lookout Stations

Created on each of the five masts some 60 feet above the Sun Deck. Stations have slatted teak deck, high safety rail and an all-weather comfortable teak settee for lounging while observing the action below.

Passengers wishing to visit the Lookout Stations slip on a ship-supplied safety vest and a watchful crew member on the deck keeps the safety line taut as the guest makes the easy ascent up one of the ratlines.

Bow Sprit – Spread out like a great porous blanket ahead of the bow and supported by the bowsprit, the famed net is braided of heavy gauge netting line and the perfect spot for a secure nap, leisurely chat or unhurried read. Dolphins sometimes are visible below, seeming to brush their tails in play against the churning water at the bow of the ship.

Balconies  Not far ahead of the Bridge, these diminutive lookout spots with a high safety rail hold two people at a time. Constructed out of steel to extend out from both port and starboard, there is nothing but racing seas below.
