2017 Mediterranean Golf Cruise
 Vacation by PerryGolf

2017 Mediterranean Islands Golf Cruise
Valencia, Mallorca, Menorca, Sardinia & Corsica
on Azamara Quest

7 Nights | 4 Rounds | Barcelona to Rome | 21 – 28 October 2017

PerryGolf is proud to again partner with Azamara Club Cruises for an exceptional golf voyage to some of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean on board the outstanding 690 guest Azamara Quest.  We begin in the vibrant Spanish city of Barcelona with six captivating ports of call ahead including Valencia, Mallorca, Menorca, Sardinia and Corsica enroute to Rome.  The golf lineup includes four outstanding rounds at the highly rated courses of El Saler, Son Gual, Pevero Golf Club and Sperone Golf Club.  The latter three have the added charm of all being island venues, and our visits there are made superbly convenient via our floating boutique hotel Azamara Quest !

Our guest list typically brings together like-minded individuals sharing a love of golf. Inevitably many new friendships are formed. Many guests are golfing couples but an equal number are golfers travelling with a non-golfing spouse. The latter are also exceptionally well catered for as, in addition to the fabulous onboard facilities, a wide selection of Azamara Land Discoveries® are offered in each port. The itinerary also allows for some relaxing “time at sea” under Mediterranean skies.

Onboard, our guests are absolutely spoiled. Our favored ship Azamara Quest is small enough to provide a most intimate experience and nimble enough to access smaller ports, but large enough to provide a great choice of outstanding dining and bars; the ship also offers an exceptional full service spa, and features excellent and varied evening entertainment. In addition to all “normal” cruise features, Azamara Club Cruises include all soft drinks, specialty coffees, boutique daily wines, and a choice of select standard beers and cocktails within the cruise fare, plus all gratuities to create a thoroughly all inclusive cruise experience. Our itinerary is also set to allow for late evenings and occasional overnights in certain ports, allowing you much greater “immersion” in the destination. Just read what our past guests say. We know you will love it!

21 OCTOBER, SATURDAY:  BARCELONA, SPAIN (IN PORT / 6:00PM)

Embark Azamara Quest from 1:00PM onwards. All aboard by 4:30PM.

Barcelona is the 11th most visited city in the world according to MasterCard’s 2014 Global Destinations Index and 3rd most popular in Europe behind London and Paris. There’s a lot to like in this Olympic City (1992) from the food to the beaches, the weather and the night life. For many visitors however Barcelona is about architecture, especially the work of Antoni Gaudi. His Sagrada Familia in the city center is astounding. Construction began on the church in 1882; it is scheduled for completion in 2026 on the 100th anniversary of Gaudi's death.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®

Welcome Cocktails & Briefing this evening for a chance to meet your fellow travellers.

22 OCTOBER, SUNDAY:  VALENCIA, SPAIN (7:00AM / 6:00PM)

Valencia has come a very long way since 138 BC when it was founded  as a Roman colony.  Today it is Spain’s third largest city after Madrid and Barcelona.  It has one of the world’s most prosperous local economies.  The story you’ll probably take home however is about one of the most striking ranges of architecture imaginable. Of course you’ll find antiquity in many forms such as Valencia’s Gothic cathedral which was built over a mosque after the Christian reconquest of 1238.  You will also find the space-age City of Arts and Sciences, a massive project by neofuturistic architect Santiago Calatrava (World Trade Center Transportation Hub) whose showpiece is Oceanogràfic – one of the world’s biggest aquariums, with polar zones, underwater tunnels and an underwater restaurant.  The juxtaposition is startling.  And you’ll have two full days to immerse yourself in it!

GOLF: El Saler Golf Club is located on the outskirts of Valencia within the Albufera Nature Park. Designed by Javier Arana, one of the most prestigious Spanish designers and opened in 1968, it sits nearby the beach occupying terrain dotted with pine trees and sand dunes and has a distinctly links feel. It’s famous "cats claw" – similar to the Monterey Peninsula’s iceplant grass –  is to be avoided in the rough.

23 OCTOBER, MONDAY:  PALMA DE MALLORCA, SPAIN (7:00AM / 10:00PM)

The original city of Palma dates back to Roman times; modern day residents of the old quarter are still digging up artifacts in their gardens. Balanced on a seawall above the marina is the amazing gothic Cathedral, icon of the city, with some of the world’s largest stained glass windows. Also high on the artistic scale is the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Art featuring works by masters including Picasso, Miró, Gris, and Dali.  Mother Nature’s aesthetic achievements can be found in the Caves of Drach—mystical caverns where the play of shadow and light on the rock formations stimulates the imagination.

GOLF: Son Gual has been lauded since it opened in 2007.  The Thomas Himmel designed layout is considered the finest of the Balearic islands and is one of the most talked about venues in southern Europe, with the European Golf & Travel Media Association naming it as 'The Discovery of 2010'.  Son Gual enjoys a lovely location, peppered with mature olive trees and wild flowers, with its design and conditioning being of the very highest standard.

24 OCTOBER, TUESDAY:  MAHON, MENORCA, SPAIN (8:00AM / 6:00PM)

Your arrival by ship is fortuitous as Mahon is most striking when approached by sea, perched atop a cliff overlooking the natural harbor. Shops cluster along streets between two plazas, one large and lined with cafés and restaurants, the other tranquil, and site of the Church of Santa Maria, known for a celebrated organ with four keyboards and more than 3,000 pipes; and Carmen, a convent whose cloisters now house the municipal market.

25 OCTOBER, WEDNESDAY:  CAGLIARI, SARDINIA, ITALY (1:00PM / 6:00PM)

Arriving by sea is how you get to witness to full specter of this colorful city rising haphazardly from the sea, cresting with a rocky centerpiece better known as Il Castello. The capital of Sardinia, Cagliari boasts over 25 centuries of history to explore in the form of Roman ruins, museums, churches, and numerous galleries. Wander the streets to catch glimpses of yellow-tinged buildings juxtaposed with an impossibly blue sky. Or head to Poetto, the main beach. Spanning nearly five miles along the city’s coastline, we suggest splurging on an umbrella and lounge chair which will offers the perfect vantage point to contemplate the alluring turquoise water. But as enjoyable as Cagliari is in the daylight, once the sun starts to set you’ll want to find yourself in the heart of Cagliari’s medieval old town, Il Castello. Gaze over the city below and the ocean beyond and watch Mother Nature put on her own version of a light show as the fading light casts shadows on the landscape below.

26 OCTOBER, THURSDAY:  OLBIA, SARDINIA (7:00AM / 11:00PM)

In a desirable location on the stunning Costa Smeralda, Olbia has been inhabited since the 8th century BC, but a recent archaeological discovery of 24 shipwrecks—two of them from the age of Nero—has landed it in the spotlight. The name Olbia means "happy town", though its past has been somewhat difficult with the city destroyed and rebuilt many times throughout its history. Of course that makes it all the more interesting, as every empire that came and went has left something of value behind for you to see.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®.

GOLF:  Pevero Golf Club. The site of Sardinia’s first golf course – along the rugged, ragged coastline of the peninsula between the Bays of Cala di Volpe and Volpero – lured the esteemed Robert Trent Jones for one of his earliest projects overseas.

27 OCTOBER, FRIDAY:  PORTO-VECCHIO, CORSICA, FRANCE (7:00AM / 6:00PM)

Dating back to the 16th century, the fortified port town of Porto-Vecchio is now a Corsican resort destination. The Old Town district—with its cobblestone streets, charming buildings, and ruins of the ancient citadel—features fashionable shops, boutiques, and cafés while Porto Vecchio’s modern marina offers ferry rides to Bonifacio and the Lavezzi Islands nature reserve, plus a variety of places to enjoy a local beverage harborside. Visit the Church of Saint Jean-Baptiste, the Bastion San Antonia, and the Porte Genoise Gate for panoramic views of the sea, mountains and surrounding valley, or enjoy an afternoon at one of Corsica's two most famous beaches, Palombaggia and Santa Guilia, located just south of Porto-Vecchio. As dusk settles, head to the Old Town’s Place de la République (main square) for its lively nightlife, bars, and restaurants.

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®.

GOLF: Sperone Golf Club. Europe’s “Pebble Beach” is yet another RTJ masterpiece in the region situated on yet another spectacular site perched above the striking blue Mediterranean. Sperone has been ranked as high as France’s 6th best course.

28 OCTOBER, SATURDAY:  CIVITAVECCHIA (ROME), ITALY (6:00AM / IN PORT)

Disembark Azamara Quest 9:00AM.

Rome has something special to offer to all visitors, no matter their interests and tastes. Whether you daydream about fighting with gladiators in the Coliseum, debating with togaed senators in the Forum, tossing a coin in a fabled fountain, or being awestruck by the magnificence of St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s masterpieces, Rome seems to live up to its sobriquet as the Eternal City. When you need sustenance, today’s Rome will provide delizioso pasta e vino. Or perhaps you draw strength from a little retail therapy—the Italians are also renowned for their sense of style.
