Ports of call: Barcelona, Spain; Nice (Villefranche), France; Santa Margherita, Italy; Florence/ Pisa (La Spezia), Italy (overnight); Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy; Naples, Italy 

Fly from Dublin to Barcelona, a vibrant blend of modern and medieval architecture, and board Celebrity Equinox for a nine-night cruise to France and Italy. 

La Spezia offers the picturesque Palio del Golfo and Ligurian cuisine. Santa Margherita's Italian Riviera charm precedes Nice's luxurious French Riviera allure. Marseille caps the trip with ancient streets, trendy cafes, and its famed bouillabaisse.

Cruise on to Rome, where your holiday comes to an end. Want to extend your getaway? Ask our travel experts about a post-cruise stay in the Eternal City of Rome.

Formerly a sleepy Spanish city, Barcelona has recently been reborn as an eclectic fusion of the modern and medieval. It’s a major destination with must-see architectural gems that date back some 2,000 years. You’ll encounter fascinating examples from the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, the Modern masters like Gaudî, and many Cataluñian greats.

La Spezia, which lies between Genoa and Pisa, and is just minutes to the east of Cinque Terre-the five fishing ports that enjoy National Park status-is home to the Palio del Golfo, an annual boat race that sees the Gulf of Poets; 13 historic villages face off against one another in celebration of the annual Festa del Mare. The town also offers fantastic shopping opportunities, as well as plenty of trattorias to enjoy local, Ligurian cuisine.

Located in the middle of the Italian Riviera, Santa Margherita is less than 4 miles from Portofino, and it is just as beautiful. The town of Santa Margherita is large enough to offer something for everyone while still maintaining a small-town feeling. Walk along the palm-lined harbor, explore the marina, or unwind at the beach. 

Nice- this jewel of the French Riviera is home to some of the world's most luxurious hotels and terraced cafes. Stroll the ultra-famous Promenade des Anglais or see masterpieces by Matisse, Renoir, Monet and Chagall in one of Nice's many museums.

Stroll the spirit and charm of France's oldest city - along La Canabiere toward the Vieux Port where ships have docked for more than 26 centuries, or in Cours Julien, a large pedestrian square lined with some of Marseille's trendiest cafés and theatres. And of course, no trip to Marseille would be complete without tasting its most renowned dish - bouillabaisse.
