21 nights | April 18 – May 09, 2015
April 25, 2015 marks 100 years since the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers – the Anzacs – on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. The aim was to capture the Dardanelles, the gateway to the Bosphorus and the Black Sea. At the end of the campaign, Gallipoli was still held by its Turkish defenders, and among the thousands killed were 2721 New Zealanders, almost one in four of those who served on Gallipoli.
For many New Zealanders then and since, the Gallipoli landings meant the beginning of something else – a feeling that New Zealand had a role as a distinct nation. Many of our Viaggio Guests have had relatives who served or were killed at this historic battle.
As the result of discussions with some of these Guests, we have have created a viaggio unique vacation experience which will provide you with the opportunity to be in Gallipoli to commemorate this historic event.
This viaggio unique vacation experience will be based around a 21 night private charter of a 244 passenger luxury cruise ship – boarding in Istanbul on April 18, 2015.

We look forward to sharing this viaggio unique vacation experience with you in 2015.
