Greece: A land of mystical wonders When 4th century BC philosopher Heraclitus wrote that “There is nothing permanent except change”, it is likely he was speaking of his home country. Castles that date to the Bronze Age, temple ruins from the Hellenistic period, 14th century Byzantine monasteries, and cities modelled around Venetian and Ottoman; each region of Greece is a leaf out of the history book. One of the oldest cities in the world, Athens is also the birthplace of democracy. Its famous Acropolis, though ravaged by wars, stands tall above the city, serving as a striking reminder to the city’s denizens of their honoured past. Olympia is more than just the homeland of the modern Olympic Games. It is a testimony to the unifying power of sports. Since 776 BCE, every four years, the Greeks practiced ‘ekecheiria’ i.e. the laying down of arms, to compete in the games, later known as the Olympic Truce. The mountainous town of Delphi might look like just another picturesque archaeological site, but to Zeus, it was the centre of the world, the navel of Gaia. Here lived the oracle who communicated the

53

word of Apollo. From peasants to kings, Greeks made the pilgrimage to consult her on matters ranging from domestic disputes to the waging of wars. The transcontinental treasures of Turkey Shimmering coastline, mysterious geological formations, 6th century heritage structures, vibrant bazaars, and a cuisine that is one of the best in the world, Turkey is a nation of many gifts. Its largest city, Istanbul, is also one of the most important cities in history, having served as the capital of four major empires. It might not be the capital city anymore but that has not dulled its lustre. To stand between the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and hear the duet of call to prayer is an eternally soul stirring experience. Turkey’s historical sites span the full spectrum, from the presumed home of Virgin Mary, to the ANZAC memorials of the World War I Gallipoli campaign. With luxurious ancient Turkish baths and wholesome Mediterranean cuisine, there is plenty to indulge the senses.

Jewels of Europe 15 Day Cruise

Budapest > Amsterdam

Grand palaces and fairytale castles A region steeped in the history of ancient trade routes, today the rivers of the Rhine, Main and Danube meander through forested hillsides, idyllic vineyards and romantic towns. Restored castles still stand watch from their position atop dramatic hilltops, just as they did in the days of feudal knights and land barons. However, today the sites of ancient battles and medieval skirmishes have been replaced by a tranquil countryside with thriving towns and villages. Elsewhere, romantic ruins echo with a timeless beauty and Gothic spires rise out of the picturesque communities nestled along the river banks. This is a journey that will take you through the Europe of your imagination, full of wonder, recalling medieval jousts, cobbled streets and childhood fairytales while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Combine this cruise with a City Stay in Prague, Paris and/or Floriade. See pages 128 & 130.

Romantic Rhine & Moselle 15 Day Cruise

Zurich > Amsterdam

Romance is alive and well on the Rhine Anyone who doesn’t believe in the power of romance has never travelled along the Rhine or its idyllic tributary, the Moselle. In fact, on this itinerary, there’s probably a fairytale moment waiting just beyond the next river bend. The castles that grace this region sometimes seem as if they were lifted straight from the silver screen – hardly surprising as it’s a region that’s long been favoured by Hollywood directors. From Lorelei, the Rhine river siren said to lure sailors to their demise, to the legendary Black Forest, which still resonates with imaginative children’s tales, there are stories of romances galore to discover and delight in. You may even compose a few new ones of your own.

Unforgettable Douro 11 Day Cruise

Porto > Porto

A truly timeless place Portugal’s Douro River winds its way through towns that have somehow managed to preserve their distinctive culture and way of life, even as the world all around them has succumbed to change. From elegant Lamego to Regua and Vega de Terron, you’ll find that people still ply their traditional trades in the historic pockets of the Douro Valley. The vineyards that grace the banks of the Douro are worked the way vineyards in the region always have been. The wines they produce, from the many highly loved varieties of port, to their fine unfortified reds and whites, are as rich and plentiful as ever. The fare is as honest and as delicious as it was in days of yore. And, most refreshing of all, the communities are every bit as friendly and welcoming.

For a little extra pampering, head to our on board Wellness Area for a massage or treatment*. The Fitness Centre and Walking Track will help you keep trim and allow for a little extra indulgence.
