You’ll experience an abundance of history and culture. And each day will deliver a new island or bay to discover and explore. We make the most of your time and curiosity, without pressure of a fixed schedule. This cruise is much more than just a vacation. It provides unique experiences that create memories that will last for a lifetime. Join us on board!
During this week, you fill up your senses while cruising through blue water, watching the beautiful coastline, gazing at millions of stars and perhaps having the extraordinary experience of being with dolphins. The combination of this and being far away from distraction and day to day life, encourages us to find total relaxation on board of the New Horizons.
We start our cruise on Saturday in the marina of Ragusa, one of the most picturesque towns in Sicily. The view from the upper town over Ragusa Ibla on its own separate hilltop is quite breathtaking. One of the UNESCO-listed Baroque towns of south-eastern Sicily. The best activity in Ragusa is wandering; meandering along the character-filled lanes of Ragusa Ibla or clambering up the steps towards the upper town and enjoying the great, classic view over Ibla. This is an inviting town for even more leisurely pursuits – a long drink at a cafe table on the pretty sloping piazza in front of the Duomo, a wine-flavoured gelato, a splendid meal at one of the town’s small restaurants or a stroll in the park.
From Ragusa, we follow the southern coast of Sicily for a while before we cross over to Gozo. Baroque churches and old stone farmhouses dot the countryside. Gozo’s rugged landscape and spectacular coastline await exploration. It is an island, that is thought to be the legendary Calypso’s isle of Homer’s Odyssey, Gozo has numerous historical sites, forts and amazing panoramas, as well as the ancient megalithic temples of Ġgantija, a World Heritage site. Older than both the pyramids and Stonehenge, the giant structures of Ġgantija were built by civilizations that thrived here more than 5,000 years ago.
From Gozo we continue our journey to the west coast of Malta. Malta packs glorious variety into its small archipelago. You’ll find prehistoric temples, fossil-studded cliffs, hidden coves, thrilling scuba diving and a history of remarkable intensity. And the beaches in the Western part of Malta are the most beautiful ones with spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea.
It was home then, as now, to Malta’s noble families; some are descendants of the Norman, Sicilian and Spanish overlords who made Mdina their home from the 12th century onwards. Impressive palaces line its narrow, shady streets. Mdina is one of Europe’s finest examples of an ancient walled city and extraordinary in its mix of medieval and baroque architecture. Like nearby Mdina, Rabat played a major role in Malta’s past and is a prime source of its cultural heritage.
This cruise is much more than just a vacation. It provides unique experiences that create memories that will last for a lifetime!
On Thursday we arrive at the capital of Malta, discovering the creeks and the grand harbour with specular views on Valletta. Imagine megalithic temples, baroque churches, narrow antique streets, and hilltop citadels. They are Malta’s human legacy. Valletta is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will experience Valletta and the Grand Harbour from the sea with majestic views of the island’s fortifications.
On Friday you’ll have this full day of the cruise to relax on board or to discover Valletta or even Malta in more detail, as we can bring you ashore with our tender. Saturday, the final day. The guests that stay on board for another week, say goodbye to old friends that will leave today and ahoy to the new friends that arrive for another week of discovery. This next journey will take the New Horizons along the beautiful east coast of Malta, via Gozo to Sicily.
