Departing from Port of Southampton
White Star Way, Southampton, Hampshire, SO14 3GG

Embark on a captivating journey with this carefully curated cruise, designed to immerse you in the enthralling history of the Mediterranean and Adriatic regions. These waters have borne witness to a tapestry of conflicts and cultures across the ages, shaping the fascinating landscapes we encounter today.

In addition, you’ll be joined aboard by an experienced astronomer from Go Stargazing for guided night sky tours under light pollution-free skies as part of Fred. Olsen’s Sky at Sea signature experience.

Stargazing highlights for this cruise
  • Explore the night skies on deck with an experienced astronomer from Go Stargazing.
  • Learn how our ancestors interpreted the sky with a laser-guided tour of the constellations.
  • We start our cruise at full Moon with the opportunity of seeing some spectacular views of the Moon rising soon after the Sun sets
  • The longer days mean darkness falls later in the evening. However, those who stay up late (or get up early!) may witness incredible views of the Summer Milky Way in the early morning hours and Saturn just before sunrise.
  • Observe the phase of the Moon change throughout the cruise. The Moon’s craters and mountain ranges look stunning through binoculars! And it may be possible to view some rare clair-obscure effects, including the Lunar X and V at the half-Moon phase.
