Pullmantur’s 2018 Summer Schedule
When it comes to great-value summer holidays, look no further than Pullmantur Cruises. Throughout the summer season of 2018, each of the fleet’s four ships will be positioned in regions around the world, taking passengers to some of the world’s finest destinations in comfort and style. Each ship is equipped with a variety of amenities including climbing walls, a spacious pool deck, bars, lounges, an on board theatre and much more to keep you and your loved ones entertained.
From the golden beaches of the Caribbean to the icy cold landscapes of the Arctic Circle, a Pullmantur cruise opens up a multitude of possibilities. This week, we provide an overview of the destinations you can visit throughout the summer season of 2018.
A journey through the Eastern Mediterranean opens up an opportunity to visit destinations throughout Greece and the Balkan nations. The Greek capital of Athens offers plenty of historical landmarks to visit – most namely, the Acropolis and the Pantheon. A number of sailings will depart out of the Athens port of Piraeus, taking passengers on a journey to a number of charmingly and quaint Greek islands including Mykonos, Volos, Souda Bay and Santorini.
On selected sailings, passengers will have an opportunity to travel through the Adriatic Sea to what many consider to be the last frontier of the Mediterranean. This opens up an opportunity to visit Balkan ports including the walled Croatian city of Dubrovnik and the scenic Montenegrin port of Kotor. Best of all, you will also have an opportunity to visit the floating Italian city of Venice, which is home to a multitude of impressive architecture and glistening canals.
All-year-round, Pullmantur’s Monarch will be positioned in the Caribbean, offering passengers a chance to enjoy beach relaxation at any time. Each itinerary will take passengers to some of the Caribbean’s southernmost located islands including the Aruba Bonaire and Curaçao. Each of these islands is home to an array of colourful buildings that reflect the Dutch heritage, as well as a number of beautiful beaches upon which to relax.
The Mediterranean season is well underway and Pullmantur’s Sovereign can take you to some of the finest destinations this region has to offer. In operation until November, these sailings offer a chance to explore charming cities including Rome and Barcelona, as well are more off-the-beaten-track gems including Villefranche and Sete. With so many beaches to relax upon and mesmerising settlements filled with historic landmarks, shopping outlets, bars and much more – it is easy to see why the Mediterranean is considered one of the most popular summer destinations for cruisers.
Zenith will perhaps be the busiest of the four Pullmantur vessels, operating itineraries in a number of destinations throughout the summer season. After transitioning from the Caribbean, Zenith will head into northern Europe before operating two seven-night Baltic sailings. These will offer an opportunity for passengers to visit ports including Helsinki, Malmo, Nynashamn, Tallinn and the iconic St Petersburg.
However, this isn’t the only region where you will find Zenith throughout the summer season, with the ship also pencilled in for a number of Norwegian fjords itineraries. These sailings will enable passengers to travel to some of the most scenic destinations that the continent has to offer, while also providing a peaceful alternative to popular destinations elsewhere. Perhaps most exciting of all, however, is Zenith’s venture into the Arctic Circle. This is a brand new itinerary to be operated by Pullmantur Cruises, taking intrepid passengers into the northernmost reaches of the continent and docking in destinations including Murmansk, Longyearbyen and Narvik.
While each Pullmantur vessel will operate sailings within a different region, the all-inclusive package you can enjoy on board is synonymous across the entire fleet. You can enjoy all meals, a selected range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and all on board entertainment (excluding casino) at no extra cost.
