Enjoy a five-day cruise around the beautiful Venetian Lagoon with a TV legend

With its breathtaking architecture, glorious palaces and romantic canals that flow into a wonderful natural lagoon, Venice is a must-visit destination. And there's no better way to discover the city than on this fabulous five-day cruise that not only takes in Venice, but also Padua, Chioggia and the Adriatic islands of Burano and Murano.

To make your trip truly unforgettable, you'll be joined by former Corrie and Benidorm star Sherrie Hewson as you take a trip to see the famous coloured glass of the lagoon islands of Burano and Murano. Sherrie, who has also appeared in Carry On Behind, Russ Abbot's Madhouse and Juliet Bravo, will join you for an exclusive drinks and talk before she answers your questions in a private Q&A session.

All your meals on board your ship, MS Michelangelo, are included, as is your cocktail reception and gala welcome dinner. Also included is a trip to the islands of Burano and Murano, plus there are optional trips including the medieval city of Padua and the Doge's Palace, with its mysterious passageways.

Discover Venice
From Piazza San Marco to the Grand Canal and Bridge of Sighs, there's incredible architecture to admire. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to places to explore. You will also have the chance to pick from a range of wonderful optional excursions, including a visit to the nearby city of Padua, a tour of a local manufacturer of handcrafted gondolas and Venetian masks, and a tour where you'll walk in Casanova's footsteps through the secret passageways of the Doge's Palace.

Sail on MS Michelangelo
With just 78 cabins, MS Michelangelo is the ideal ship on which to explore the Venetian Lagoon. It has a spacious sundeck, where you can watch scenery drift by and, each night, you'll be berthed on the waterfront at Riva dei Sette Martiri, a short walk from Piazza San Marco. The elegant upper deck restaurant also boasts panoramic views.
