Will ship go around Sicily?

Recommended Posts

Sailing Europe for the first time next spring on Carnival Radiance. One of the stops is Palermo, Italy. We will then have a sea day and the next port is Kotor, Montenegro.

I'm curious would we sail around the south of Sicily or go through the water way near Messina? I'm unable to locate an actual itinerary map on the Carnival site.

Agree. Sailing the Straits of Messina is a plus.

Keep an eye on Stromboli when you sail by, maybe you'll see something interesting.

You peaked my interest. Something like what?

I am just now starting my research as the cruise is sooo far off.

Have you looked up what Stromboli is? Its an active volcanic island. I suspect you will not be close, as you will be heading west to Palermo, and you might be passing it in the dark. Or, maybe you will come back by it enroute to the Straits of Messina, but again, it may be getting dark. IIRC correctly its a couple sailing hours north of the Straits of Messina
