Azamara Onward
Sailing: October 30, 2023

Discover the Mysteries of the Med

There’s so much to explore around the Mediterranean. Even if you’ve been before, this immersive Azamara voyage calls on hidden gem ports that allow you to explore further. Start in enigmatic Istanbul and visit famed sites like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapı Palace, and Basilica Cistern. Arrive in Kepez, the gateway to Canakkale, Troy, and Gallipoli. Here, a stroll along the Kordon (the waterfront promenade), followed by time spent exploring the vibrant cobbled lanes are both can’t-miss experiences.

Next, discover the many epic landmarks of Ephesus on a late stay when we call on Kusadasi. Walk in the footsteps Ephesus’ wealthiest citizens at the Terrace Houses and explore the house where Mary, Mother of Jesus, once lived. Traditional-yet-contemporary Marmaris follows, where beautiful beaches and ancient ruins abound. A late stay in Santorini means plenty of time to sip fine Greek wines, and explore the ruins of a 3,500-year-old Minoan town at Akrotiri.

Spend the following day sailing and soaking in all your boutique hotel has to offer before arriving in Valletta, Malta. We stay late here and you’ll need the extra time—marvel at St. John’s Co-Cathedral, take in fantastic views from Upper Barrakka Gardens, and stroll along the harbor boardwalk. Next, it’s all about Italy. ​​Siracusa, Sicily, is the perfect place to immerse yourself in Sicilian cuisine with a cooking class on a late stay. Catania is rich with Baroque architecture, medieval castles, and your gateway to Taormina and Mt. Etna. Next, Naples never disappoints. From its rich, historical past (don’t miss the ruins of Pompeii) to its modern-day reputation as a gastronomic hotspot (pizza is a must), the “City of Sun” shines as an Italian port begging to be explored before your journey ends in Rome.

  • Day 1
    Istanbul
    Turkey
    Read More +
    Date: Mon 30-Oct 2023
    Activity: Embark
    Arrival: -
    Depart: 6:00 pm
    East meets West in the storied city where Europe and Asia meet. Start in Sultanahmet Square and you can easily explore the intricate architecture of Topkapi Palace, the cathedral-turned-mosque-turned-museum of Hagia Sofia, and the brilliant blues of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Sample kebaps, mezes and more at the city’s endless restaurants and taverns where you’re sure to meet friendly locals and be caught up in their infectious love of life.
  • Day 2
    Kepez
    (Troy/Gallipoli), Turkey
    Read More +
    Date: Tue 31-Oct 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 3:00 pm
    Kepez is a small seaside town, but real treasures can be found when you explore further beyond the shore. The ancient city of Troy was once just a myth, but archaeological excavations have brought this fabled locale to life. Also within reach of port is the Gallipoli Peninsula, where an ill-fated WWI campaign devastated Allied forces. In Assos, the Temple of Athena sits perched on an acropolis with sweeping sea views.
  • Day 3
    Kusadasi
    (Ephesus), Turkey
    Read More +
    Date: Wed 1-Nov 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 10:00 pm
    Kusadasi has many charms, but let’s talk Turkey: The star attraction is Ephesus. Once the second largest city in the Roman Empire, its marble-made Arcadian Street stretches from the 24,000-capacity Great Theatre (where St. Paul used to preach) to the harbor. Nearby sites include the Temple of Artemis, Basilica of St. John, and House of Virgin Mary, where Mary is supposed to have spent her last days.
  • Day 4
    Marmaris
    Turkey
    Read More +
    Date: Thu 2-Nov 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 6:00 pm
    A resort town that is as charming as it is energetic—Marmaris has something for everyone. From storied charm in the city’s historic Old Town, a bustling marina, and of course, the vibrant night scene of the famed “Bar Street”, you’ll only wish you could stay longer.
  • Day 5
    Santorini
    Greece
    Read More +
    Date: Fri 3-Nov 2023
    Activity: Tendered
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 9:00 pm
    The capital, Fira, clings to the rim of the caldera 900 feet above the sea. Take the cable car, or giddy up on a donkey to climb the 588 steps to the top. Hike to nearby Oia, a quintessential Greek village. Head south to the 3,500-year-old Minoan town Akrotiri. Often called Greece’s answer to Pompeii, the well-preserved ruins provide a glimpse into Santorini’s storied (and explosive) past.
  • Day 6
    At Sea

    Date: Sat 4-Nov 2023
    Activity: Cruising
    Arrival: -
    Depart: -

    Spend the day sailing in style aboard your boutique hotel at sea. Indulge in a treatment at Sanctum Spa, stay ship shape with a class at our fitness center, or lounge the day away on our sunny pool deck.

    In the evening, savor inspired Italian cuisine at Aqualina, or relish in a classic steakhouse experience at Prime C. Plus, you’ll find plenty of exciting evening entertainment, from thrilling shows at Cabaret Lounge to intimate performances in the Living Room.

    Date: Sun 5-Nov 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 7:00 am
    Depart: 7:00 pm
    Everywhere you look in Valletta, there’s wonder to behold. Look down in St. John’s Co-Cathedral and discover “The most beautiful floor in the world.” Look up while wandering the streets and see colorful balconies filled with locals going about their day. Look beyond the city’s small size (less than half a square mile) and you’ll find a blend of old and new architecture that’s not to miss.
  • Day 8
    Siracusa
    Sicily, Italy
    Read More +
    Date: Mon 6-Nov 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 10:00 pm
    Classic sights like the Ortygia, Neapolis, and the Basilica of Santa Lucia are always worth a visit, but if you’re looking for something a little more offbeat, take in a puppet theatre show—a traditional form of Sicilian entertainment. The stunning Fonte Aretusa was once the source of the city’s drinking water, and now the pond and surrounding area is a scenic spot, perfect for a picnic lunch.
  • Day 9
    Catania
    Sicily, Italy
    Read More +
    Date: Tue 7-Nov 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 7:00 am
    Depart: 4:00 pm
    Elegant and modern, Catania is incredibly rich with Baroque architecture, medieval castles, and Roman era theatres. It’s the perfect basecamp for exploring Europe’s most active volcano—Mount Etna. The area’s rich volcanic soil produces distinct, delicious wines that pair perfectly with the city’s signature dish: Pasta alla Norma. Don’t miss the ornate Bellini Theater, and a live performance of a different kind at the lively fish market.
  • Day 10
    Naples
    Italy

    Date: Wed 8-Nov 2023
    Activity: Docked
    Arrival: 8:00 am
    Depart: 5:30 pm
    As energetic as it is authentic, Naples is a city known for its individuality. And it’s that drive to stand out that makes it such a special place. From its rich, historical past to its modern-day reputation as a gastronomic hotspot, the “City of Sun” shines as an Italian port begging to be explored.
  • Day 11
    Civitavecchia
    (Rome), Italy
    Read More +
    Date: Thu 9-Nov 2023
    Activity: Debark
    Arrival: 6:00 am
    Depart: -
    Always enchanting, the Eternal City will captivate you—no matter how many times you visit. Walk in the steps of gladiators at the Coliseum, channel your inner statesman at the Forum, or gaze up in wonder at Michelangelo's masterwork at St. Peter's Basilica. Pasta and vino are a must, and there are plenty of places to relax and refuel after a day of exploration.
Please note: While we do our best to adhere to our published itineraries, they may be changed at the discretion of the captain due to weather advisories, port traffic, and any other unforeseeable circumstances.
