NCL CRUISE OF SPAIN, FRANCE AND ITALY
FEATURING STUDIO SOLO CABINS DESIGNED FOR SINGLE OCCUPANCY SAVING YOU MONEY!
JUNE 16-23, 2019

With included one night pre cruise stay in Barcelona Spain

Description: Barcelona, Spain

Join us for a cruise aboard another fabulous NCL ship, offering singles the opportunity to save money by booking a studio cabin.  These cabins are designed for single occupancy and save you a  great deal of money over a traditional single supplement.

We will start with a pre cruise hotel night in Barcelona with an optional Flamenco dinner and dance show.  The next morning we will enjoy a guided city tour before going to our ship for a 7 night cruise visiting the splendors of Rome, Florence and Pisa, Italy, plus the chic glamour of Cannes on the French Riviera and finally, the scintillating island of Majorca Spain.

In each port, as on all of our singles group cruises, we will offer group excursions, so you can explore with the rest of our singles group on the cruise, rather than with a bus load of passengers the cruise line sends on each excursion.

PLUS ALL PASSENGERS RECEIVE FREE DRINKS THE ENTIRE CRUISE AND FREE GRATUITIES
(FREE DRINKS PACKAGE INCLUDES ALL DRINKS OF $15 OR LESS.  YOU PAY NOTHING)

Saturday June 15th – Arrive into Barcelona on your own flight arrangement and make your way to our hotel, the Holiday Inn Express, ideally located just steps from the metro, allowing you easy access to explore at your own pace. 

This evening, after a welcome orientation, join us if you wish, for an optional Flamenco dinner and dance show.

Sunday June 16th – This morning we will enjoy a city tour of Barcelona with a visit to the famed cathedral la Sagrada Familia and to see the mimes on the famous Las Ramblas, followed by transport to our cruise ship.
