Fly to Venice and transfer, by coach, to the port and board Norwegian Star before she sets sail late afternoon. Don't miss the chance to watch the stunning Venetian skyline recede into the distance as you begin your cruise adventure.
Get to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers, today, as Norwegian Star spends a day cruising through the Adriatic towards the Ionian Sea.
Corfu, in the blue Ionian Sea, is a verdant, flower-strewn island described by Homer as "a beautiful, rich land". Explore Corfu Town, or take an excursion to explore this colourful island, with its citrus and olive groves, ancient villages and monasteries.
This morning, Norwegian Star drops anchor off Santorini. The rocky crescent of the island's shoreline traces the crater of the vast volcano that once erupted here, while the white buildings, cobbled lanes and blue-domed churches of the main town wait to be explored on the hillside above.
Livelier, but no less lovely than Santorini, is Norwegian Star's second Cycladic call - Mykonos. Visit the famous, harbour-side windmills, explore the cobbled lanes of the cosmopolitan main town, or stop for a drink and a bite in one of the many excellent bars and restaurants.
Spend a second day at sea relaxing as Norwegian Star sails back towards the Adriatic.
Once a major port, but now some distance from the sea thanks to the shifting coastline, UNESCO-listed Ravenna is famed for its stunning mosaics - thought to be the finest in Western art. Explore the city, or simply take a seat a cafe on elegant Piazza del Popolo, Ravenna's expansive central square, and relax.
Norwegian Star returns to Venice, this morning. Disembark here, then transfer back to the airport by coach to catch your flight home.
Passengers aged 21 years of age and over can take advantage of the Ultimate Beverage Package on board, which entitles them to free drinks (a variety of spirits and cocktails, draught beer, wine by the glass and bottles up to the value of $15).

The transfer time from the airport to the cruise terminal is approximately 20 minutes.
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your cruise terminal. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your cruise terminal. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
