There are few places in the world where you can sample as many flavours, cultures and historic sites as you can on a Mediterranian cruise. This is a wonderful option for anyone who wants to see as much of the region as they can in a short space of time. It is also a great way to see much of Europe without the hassle of organising the trip.
Explore the region with cruises from Italy, France, Spain or Greece. Experience amazing scenery and rich cultures as you cruise from one glamorous port to another. From the sun-soaked Greek islands to the glitzy French Riviera to the Roman ruins of Italy, a cruise on the Mediterranean will surely be a holiday to remember.
Highlights include Athens and the Greek Islands, the arty city of Barcelona, the scenery of the Cote d'Azur and gazing at the yachts and finery of the French Riviera's rich and famous. Sailing through the Giudecca Canal into Venice is one of the many other great experiences.
But of course, there's a wide range of cruise operators sailing all year round, so you can choose your own itinerary or find an itinerary that suits you. You'll also find a range of prices to suit most budgets - from low cost cruises to luxury ones.
The prime season for Mediterranean cruises is from April to October, although there are ships sailing all year. Expect temperamental weather outside of these months, but you might also be able to pick up an off-season bargain.
