Arriving in Barcelona on April 27, Celebrity Ascent will start her European adventure with a 9-night Italian Riviera and France itinerary.

Travellers can expect to visit the stunning sites of Ephesus (Kusadasi) and Naples, complete with their rich history and tours of the ruins, as well as venturing into the crystalline waters of the Greek Isles circling Mykonos and Santorini. Mediterranean itineraries allow guests to explore the region’s stunning hotspots such as Spain’s famous Las Ramblas and Gaudi’s architecture in the streets of Barcelona; Italy’s chic town of Portofino, a favorite amongst the world’s glitterati, and France’s esteemed wineries in Provence (Marseille).
