It’s the chance to combine all your ideas of a dream Italian holiday into one luxury vacation. In addition to your cruise Mariner Boating will include a tour of Sicily.

Pcture yourself cruising the Mediterranean on a brand new, private luxury catamaran. Imagine a friendly, international, professional crew offering their experience and local knowledge, and personalising everything about the vacation from the itinerary itself to your dining and recreational choices.

Unlike many charter yachts, Ombre Blu are specialists in the offer of exclusive on board services including: 5 star massage therapy available all day every day, personal wine tastings with Italian sommeliers, Italian/Sicilian cooking demonstrations using the finest local ingredients, personally guided walking tours and volcano climbs with professional vulcanolgists, scuba diving and courses with your own private instructor and more...

This is life aboard Ombre Blu. You’ll taste deeply the local beauty, nature, history, culture and cuisine, in a comfortable, casual and flexible environment, where everything revolves around you.

This vacation is perfect for all sorts of groups -- friends, families, business people or even as a quiet, romantic escape for a honeymoon couple.

Ombre Blu specialises in cruising Sicily’s Aeolian Islands, which we call ‘The Magnificent Seven’. It’s a unique opportunity to explore in depth this hidden Mediterranean paradise. The Magnificent Seven are the rare gems in the Mediterranean. Their crystal clear water bays, coves, active volcanoes, isolated reefs, white painted houses, and archaeological sites are unmatched for beauty and drama. Their food and wine are simply extraordinary.

Two cabins with en-suite are available on a departure in September 2008.

In conjunction with the one week cruise on board Mariner Boating Holidays is offering one week overland in Sicily. Travel by private minibus and explore this intriguing destination on a well researched tour with pre-booked accommodation including breakfast.
