WINGS Away Travel has brought together the best of both worlds of cruise holidaying in a unique package seldom offered in Australia: a week's "Big Ship" cruising the Mediterranean, followed by a week's "Small Ship" river cruising through Burgundy and Provence.

And wrapped into all this are also 2-nights in Venice, one in Nice and three in Paris… making for a total 20-nights kicking-off on September 2 this year.

Fully-escorted by one of Australia's most-experienced cruise-travel agents, Maree McClelland the tour begins with the 2-nights in Venice before joining the 4-star Italian liner MSC Poesia for Bari in Italy, Katakolon (Greece,) Izmir and Istanbul (Turkey,) Dubrovnik in Croatia, and 2-nights in the Italian Lakes.

Guests then transfer by luxury coach for a night in Nice before joining the 138-passenger, 4-star Avalon Scenery for Aries, Avignon, Viviers, Tournon-Vienne, Lyon, Macon-Tournus, Chalon-sur-Saone and Beaune, and Paris where there are three hotel nights.

Accommodation aboard Poesia is in an Outside Cabin with Balcony, and on Avalon Scenery in an Outside Stateroom with floor to ceiling window; there are 22-breakfasts, 12-lunches and 15-dinners included in the package, as well as select guided sightseeing on Poesia and nine port excursions on Scenery.

Prices start from $12,840pp including return air and taxes from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane; for a full itinerary phone 1800 800 640 or email
