Since its founding, Barcelona has always been a center of art and design, culminating with a series of Gaudi masterpiece building including Sagrada Familia Basilica. Spend a day wandering through the old Gothic quarter or take a 30-minute trip to Sitges, the famed gay Spanish beach resort.

Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Gorgeous, accessible Palma is just the beginning of Mallorca’s charm. It’s immense Gothic cathedral, moored like the prow of a great ship on the Mediterranean's edge or its astounding galleries are just a tip of the iceberg. If the sights don't grab you, the soulful sea views, fabulous food and happening bar scene surely will. Need a breather? Within minutes you can be at a hilltop castle or stretched out on a beach. No wonder it’s a favorite of travelers from around the world!

From the world’s best nightlife to some of Spain’s most isolated and quiet beaches, it’s an island that lets you create your own playground. We arrive at night, in time for a walk through the streets of the old town of Dalt Vila, a drink on the terrace, and a visit to one of the legendary nightclubs. Or just watch the parade of craziness!

At Sea

Relax today! Spend the day on the outdoor decks with friends. Linger over brunch. Take in our pool games, bingo (yes, gay bingo), and of course our famous afternoon T-dance! There’s nothing like a summer day sailing the Med.

Valletta, Malta

One of the most dramatic island nations in the world, Malta has become a popular tourist destination thanks to its spectacular warm climate, unique topography, and architectural and historical monuments. With three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, Valletta, and seven Megalithic Temples, Malta boasts some of the oldest free-standing structures in the world. The city of Valletta is the perfect stop to explore so much of this brilliant island.

Catania, Italy

At the foot of Sicily’s Mt. Etna, the port city of Catania welcome’s travelers to one of Italy’s most fascinating regions. It’s the perfect site to get to the legendary hilltop town of Taormina, where one of the world’s oldest Greek amphitheaters beckons and an endless parade of shops and restaurants invite you to explore the true culture of Sicily. Or visit Mt. Etna itself, one of the most dramatic active volcanoes in the world.

Corfu, Greece

One of Greece's most popular islands, Corfu is known as "the green island" because of its 3 million olive trees and flower-strewn countryside. Her Adriatic-style villages offer a fascinating mixture of old taverns, modern cafes, Byzantine churches, and inviting shops.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

A perfectly preserved medieval town, Dubrovnik has been one of the crown jewels of the Dalmatian Coast for over 1300 years. The city’s marble-paved squares, monasteries and fountains are just a few of the antiquities still standing from a thousand years ago, helping it earn its place on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Easy to explore on foot, you’ll be transported to the breathtaking medieval world of Stari Grad just beyond the Old Town’s stone walls.

Koper, Slovenia

Koper’s medieval old town centers around Titov Trg, a square with such Venetian-influenced landmarks as the Praetorian Palace and a Gothic-style loggia. Nearby Da Ponte Fountain is a replica of Venice's famed Rialto Bridge. Rebuilt many times, the circa-12th-century Cathedral of the Assumption features a tall campanile with sweeping bay views.

Venice

Our final stop is the most dramatic, as we enter the magical city of Venice. Comprised of over 120 islands in the Adriatic Sea, Venice is one of the world’s most unusual cities. Here, canals replace streets, and residents use water taxis to navigate their city. The bustling square around St. Mark’s Basilica, is certainly one of the world’s best known examples of Byzantine architecture, a still-impressive relic from the days when Venice was the world’s leading maritime power. Staying in Venice allows you time to explore, enjoy, and get lost a bit in the world’s most fascinating city.

Our disembarkation begins at approximately 7:30am on July 13th and Atlantis does not recommend flights before 11 am from the Venice airport.

It All Starts in Spain

Our most original itinerary starts in Barcelona, the summer gay capital of Europe, immediately after the finale of WorldPride in Madrid (below for details). After a day exploring the sun-splashed island of Mallorca we’ll sail to legendary Ibiza for an endlessly playful night and relaxing day on some of the world’s most magnificent beaches. By then you’ll need a quiet day at sea!

Discover Exotic Treasures

The imposing cliffs and windswept buildings of Malta create one of the world’s most fabulous settings for a day of true exploration. The only thing more dramatic might be our next day in Sicily, where legendary Mt. Etna and the inviting hilltop town of Taormina have marveled travelers for centuries. Spend a day immersed in Greek summer revelry on the lush green island of Corfu. And nothing prepares you for the dramatic ancient city of Dubrovnik, certainly one of Croatia’s greatest treasures. 

Finally, Atlantis makes our first-ever visit to Slovenia with a day in the charming venetian-influenced town of Koper before our final stop in beautiful Venice.

Sensational Days to Play

After day of serious sightseeing, Celebrity and Atlantis will take care of you in grand style. Start with a dip in the massive outdoor pool, sooth yourself in the indoor AquaSpa, or soak in one of our inviting hot tubs. Perhaps try a relaxing massage, or work out in the fully-equipped gym. Save some energy of course for Atlantis’ famous T-dances, pool games, and general silliness.

As evening approaches, you can find friends at the Martini bar or celebrate sunset with a sparkling glass of Champagne. And when it’s time for dinner, there’s more options than ever from our friendly and delicious main restaurant to magnificent specialty dining venues including the sumptuous Tuscan Grille and classic Ocean Liners restaurants.
