2. Explore Italy like a local: In the morning, you'll arrive near Florence, Italy, where you'll have the day to explore Italy's Tuscan region and the birthplace of the Renaissance. If you want to stay closer to the ship, La Speiza offers many public gardens, the Ubaldo Formentini (Civic Museum in the Castle of San Giorgio), and make sure to have lunch at La Perla del Fortino, which serves up some of the freshest seafood in the world.

3. Experience a new take on sushi: Sushi on Five features a modern take on traditional japanese sushi favorites, including; fresh sashimi and hand-rolled sushi. The menu was created by chef, Yoshikazu Okada, a fourth-generation sushi chef. As a child, Yoshi studied the sea's bounty with his grandfathers: one a fisherman, one a fish-shop proprietor. Do yourself a favor and try the wasabi.


4. Take advantage of a beach day: The next day brings your travels to Nice (Villefranche). This is a coveted beach destination, so spend your time soaking in the sun and waves. Discover delicious local fare and refreshing drinks on the streets bordering the beaches.

5. Explore the streets of Spain: The following two days you'll be docked in Barcelona, one of the most romantic and entertaining cities in all of Spain. Don't be overwhelmed with the many options available here; pick a handful and then go forth and conquer. We're fans of the Gaudi Museum for a dose of culture, the local tapas at Euskal Etxea, and the urban culture on the Raval. Of course, make sure to try Barcelona's famed seafood--Rias de Galcia and Cachitos are outstanding.

6. Two words: Spa Day. You'll have a whole day at sea to rest up! What better way to relax then at Canyon Ranch Spa Club(r)? Restore serenity with one of their wellness and lifestyle programs.
