Sailing from Siracusa after two days visiting the vibrant Sicilian port, we headed towards another Mediterranean island, Malta . Upon entering Grand Harbour of Valletta, the ship was given an 8-cannon salute from the Upper Barrakka ramparts .
My enrichment talks included a general introduction to Sicily, (“Sicilia! Italy in the Superlative”) a second talk about Siracusa’s history and highlights , a third on Italian festivals throughout the year where the unusual traditional festivals at the Easter period in central Italy and ports visited were explained.
On Palm Sunday we docked in Cagliari , Sardegna where many residents and guests aboard The World came to the theater to learn about the history and highlights of Cagliari . Here are some photos of places visited during our week on The World.
