Uncover the rich cultures, exquisite wines and regional cuisines of Europe with Napa Valley's The Vineyard House.  Join proprietor Jeremy Nickel for this Greek and Italian gem of a cruise that begins with an overnight in the canal city of Venice and stops at the walled city of Dubrovnik, Croatia before heading to picturesque Greece ports of Mykonos, Santorini, Gythion and Corfu.  Also on the itinerary are Italy's Sicily with Mt. Etna as our backdrop, the stunning island of Capri and your final destination -  the eternal city of Rome.

If the itinerary aboard Oceania Cruises' newly refurbished SIRENA is not enough to lure you in, the tasting wines from The Vineyard House certainly will!  Jeremy, along with Craig Norris and Amy Ash look forward to introducing you to some of their most popular and sought after vintages, including exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon, during onboard private-to-the-group events.  

Kick of your cruise with an optional 2-night land program from Verona, Italy - curated exclusively for guests of The Vineyard House by Food & Wine Trails.  This is a great opportunity to visit two of Italy's great wine regions, Valpolicella & Soave and get to know your fellow cruisers before embarking the ship.  And don't miss out on the optional wine-themed shore tours in Santorini and Taormina where you will be treated to estate tours, tastings and a wine-paired lunch - always a highlight of the cruise program.

As a rare added bonus, this voyage is enhanced by Oceania Cruises as a Claudine Pépin cruise.  Look forward to a unique epicurean voyage featuring specially designed signature menus, engaging lectures, culinary demonstrations and much more with the godmother of SIRENA.
