Be the first to sail in the waters of the Mediterranean this spring on a spanking new ship – at rates up to 74% off! The Costa Pacifica will be taking its 8-night maiden voyage on June 6, and surprisingly, prices start from as little as $799. That’s a rare find on any voyage in this region at this time of year – let alone an inaugural sailing.

The new Pacifica has a heavy musical influence, with each area of the ship characterized by a different style. Other highlights of the ship include a Grand Prix simulator, Samsara Spa, outdoor jogging track, shopping center, and casino.

The ship embarks from Savona, Italy and will make its first stop in Marseille, France the following day. After that, it will call on Barcelona, where passengers can visit numerous museums, theaters, and art galleries. Next is Palma de Mallorca, an ideal place to pick up embroidery, jewelry, pottery, glasswork, and other handmade creations before sailing on to Tunis, Tunisia. After seeing the ancient ruins in Tunis, cruisers will visit Valletta, on the island of Malta which is famous for medieval castles, palaces, minarets, and grand churches. From there, the ship calls on Sicily before reaching the final destination of Rome.
