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.
Today you'll call at Kotor in Montenegro, a medieval, walled gem of a city clinging to the side of southern Europe's deepest 'fjord'. The old town, or Stari Grad, is criss-crossed by a grid of narrow streets dotted with ancient churches and splendid mansions. Don't miss St Tryphon Cathedral and the fascinating Maritime Museum.
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 island 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.
This morning, Norwegian Star anchors off Dubrovnik, the exquisite 'Pearl of the Adriatic' and one of the Mediterranean's most stunning locations. Rising up out of the blue sea, the fairy-tale walls enclose a maze of red-roofed houses and historic buildings. Don't miss the opportunity to walk the ramparts of the city's walls and take in the stupendous views.
Norwegian Star returns to Venice, this morning. Disembark here, then transfer back to the airport by coach to catch your flight home.

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.
British Citizens will need a full, 10-year passport to travel on this cruise. Since some countries require visitors to be valid for at least six months after the return date of the cruise we recommend that all customers ensure that this is the case. Holders of non-British passports should check with the relevant embassies to see if any requirements and restrictions exist for any countries visited during the cruise.
