Fly to Italy and the “eternal city” of Rome. The 4-night stay gives you time to follow in the footsteps of emperors at the Roman Forum, visit the Vatican, dine on regional favourites, like mouth-watering spaghetti alla carbonara, explore the Colosseum and toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain, to make sure that you’ll be back some day.
Next, board majestic MSC Lirica for a truly Italian-style cruise experience. Appreciate the lavish décor, with stylish marble, wood, brass and soft furnishings. With up to 1984 passengers on board, Lirica is one of MSC’s four medium-sized Mistral-class ships. There’s plenty of poolside space to relax in on those days at sea and relish the gourmet cuisine inspired by your destinations.
This 11-night cruise takes you from Rome to Rhodes, Cyprus, Israel and Crete.SEE THE ITINERARY

New safety measures and greater peace of mind.
The wellbeing and safety of our passengers and staff is always a priority, especially as we adjust to a new world for travellers. My Travel Experience is committed to ensuring your peace of mind with customer-friendly booking practices and enhanced health and safety standards on our trips.
We work closely with tour operators that have received the Safe Travels stamp by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), which enables travellers to recognise companies around the world that have adopted health and hygiene global standardised protocols.
Safe travel requirements:
International regulations are constantly changing as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. Travellers need to be prepared to take a COVID-19 test prior to departure from Australia and be able to provide proof of their fully vaccinated status.
Local authorities, as well as airlines and cruise companies, may have additional requirements in place for departures. We recommend you check these in advance and again before arriving at the airport. If you're transiting through other destinations during your trip, check on any local requirements at each transit destination and confirm any specific requirements for onward travel with your airline.
Only get tested through verified official testing centres. Scammers are taking advantage of travellers by charging for fake tests. If you're unsure where to get tested, contact the local health authority for advice.
You may still need to provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result even if you've been vaccinated. If you've had a COVID-19 vaccine, you should carry your vaccination certificate along with your negative PCR test results while travelling from/to Australia, especially if you have one or more transit stops. Some destinations may ask for proof of testing and vaccination before allowing you to transit through or cross their border.
These guidelines are subject to change as the global situation evolves. The enforcement of certain measures (i.e. covid testing, social distancing, mask-wearing etc.) will vary in different regions. It's your responsibility to check with local health authorities for best practices in their region.
