Majesty pioneers new Italian port

/, Cruise Ships/Majesty pioneers new Italian port

A new Mediterranean port will be pioneered next year as Thomson Majesty inaugurates visits to the Calabrian town of Crotone, right on the ball of Italy’s foot.
Once a Greek colony, and for a while the home of Pythagoras, the town has a cathedral which dates back to the 9th Century, and a 16th Century castle which now houses a museum.
The 1,500-passenger Majesty will be sailing a series of first-time itineraries from its new summer base in Malaga, Spain.
Crotone features in the eight-night Taste of Italy cruise which also visits Barcelona; Toulon, in France; Livorno, for Florence and Naples; Civitavecchia, for Rome; Naples, and Corfu. Fares for the April 24 departure, with flights from Luton, start at £799.
A seven-night Spirit of Iberia cruise from Malaga visits Lisbon and Portimao in Portugal, Casablanca, Morocco; and Cadiz and Gibraltar. The seven-night Spanish Sensations itinerary calls at Barcelona, Touon, Mahon (Menorca), Valencia and Cartagena. Fares from £699.
Managing director Fraser Ellacott said: “As we get so many repeat customers, we are committed to updating our programme every season to offer something new for even the most seasoned cruiser. We are looking forward to welcoming customers on board the first sailings of our new itineraries from Malaga in March.”
