10 day small luxury cruise that visits amalfi coast

We would like to take a small luxury cruise this May, June or July and visit Naples, Ravello, Positano, Capri and Sicily would be nice too. Dear Husband said he'd go if we went on a cruise. Are there any small luxury cruises that cover that area? We have no interest in croatia or greek isles....just southern italy. Even a combo land/yaht thing would work. Help please!~ This is at the top of my bucket list

Oh, just thought of these folks:

Comments by someone who did the Amalfi Coast one - windstarcruises.com/blog/…

I have no personal experience with them but I know someone who did one of their cruises and enjoyed it a lot.

If you google them you will probably find a lot of reviews

Wind Star is a great cruise line but they do not have the fancy dressup nights like some cruises do. I liked the idea of being under sail part of the time. The newest ship, Star Pride, does not have sails if that is important to you. They have smaller ships. We only had 140 people on our Wind Star cruise. It will be difficult to hit all your requested ports on the same trip.

Look at vacationstogo.com . They have real bargains for cruises.

There was a Tauck tour on our Windstar cruise. They must contract out to other cruise companies and not run their own ships.

It's Tauck's tour, but Tauck leases the ship (Le Ponant) from Compagnie du Ponant, as Windstar probably does as well.

Two suitable itineraries come to mind: 7Night Amalfi and Sicily on Star Clippers' Royal Clipper, departing from Civitavecchia every Saturday in May and early June see cruisetimetables.com/cruisesonroyalclipper-m… for details and 10 Days Rome to Rome on Windstar Cruises' Star Pride departing from Civitavecchia 11 May see cruisetimetables.com/cruisesonstarpride-may2… for details.

Whatever you pick, have a happy cruise!

Look at Exclusive Cruises on the Amalfi Coast. The site is www.exclusivecruises.it. They specialize in the area with a local crew and can help with everything you need.
