Holland America's Roman Empire Special

Holland America Line is offering an 11-night' Roman Empire' cruise from just £399 per person, or a fly-cruise from £909pp, this autumn, including a free upgrade from an Inside Stateroom to an Ocean View. 

Departing on October 20 from Athens and ending in Rome, this voyage explores the very best historical sites of the Roman Empire and the Eastern Mediterranean. 

Kicking off with a pre-cruise night on board MS Noordam in Athens, guests have ample time to explore this fascinating city before sailing to Turkey, ancient Ephesus (the port of Kusadasi) and the Greek island of Rhodes. This unusual itinerary then heads further east, taking in Haifa in Israel, which is known as the gateway to Jerusalem. The ship moves onto Limassol in sunny Cyprus followed by a call at Katakolon in Greece, where guests have the chance to travel to the ancient olive grove where the original Olympic Games were born. This cruise then journeys onto Italy for an original taste of the Roman Empire, visiting Messina in Sicily and Naples before making its final call in Rome itself.

The offer includes full board accommodation and is based on two people sharing on Noordam. The fly-cruise price includes flights from London to Athens and Rome to London, as well as transfers.
