The 21-nights eastbound sailing on April 12 from Bridgetown, Barbados to Civitavecchia, the port for Rome, will call at ports in Portugal and Spain.

The westbound crossing  (28 nights) sails from Civitavecchia on October 25 with 12 ports of call.

Christel Vollmer will be on board for 16 nights on each cruise. She will hold daily sessions of Astanga yoga, also known as power yoga, on deck in the cool morning air with a second session including meditation just before sunset.
