APT has launched a new 79-day Small Ship journey from Reykjavik to Istanbul. Commencing on 13 June 2021, the journey will visit over 80 ports in 18 countries, tracing a course through rich history, myths and legends, diverse cultures, stunning vistas and unique experiences.
The all-inclusive European coastal expedition aboard MS Caledonian Sky permits a maximum of 114 guests and explores the glaciers and waterfalls of Iceland, all the way to Istanbul.
The journey contrasts vibrant cities such as Dublin, Nice, Lisbon, Barcelona and Athens with the abandoned Scottish archipelago of St Kilda, the ancient Albanian city of Durres, the remote Faroe Islands, and the islands of Elba and Sardinia. There is even the tantalising taste of a different continent through the visits to Tangier and Tunis.
Destinations ticked off over the 11 week cruise include Iceland, the Faroes, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Italy, Tunisia, Malta, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Turkey. There are no ‘at sea’ days, with late-night departures maximising the exploration time of each visit and giving guests a new location to wake up in every day, along with overnight stays in some cities, including Bordeaux and Seville.
The itinerary is priced from $114,995 per person, twin share, which includes First class airfares from Australia for all bookings made before 31 January 2020.
