Ancient ruins, sparkling beaches, turquoise waters – you might think we’re talking about the Caribbean or French Polynesia. Offering the best of tropical islands and the Mediterranean, Sardinia is the ultimate Dream cruise location.
Sardinia is an island located off of Italy. It is known for its white sandy beaches and miles of coastline. Although flat and sandy on the coast, Sardinia features many mountainous and hill regions more inland. The cuisine in Sardinia is also much different on the coast than inland. The costal cuisine is very much seafood based including the additions of lobster, mussels, and other sea dwellers to pasta dishes while inlands pasta dishes served with very rich sauces and cheeses.
