Mediterranean cruises are a fantastic way to explore some of the most famous cities in the world in just a couple of weeks. Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Venice and Dubrovnik all feature heavily in Mediterranean itineraries.

The climate is hot and sunny during the mid summer months – May and September are great for those who prefer a cooler temperature.

It is possible to take Mediterranean cruises of various durations, from 3 nights to 14+ nights. You can experience the best of the Western Med, including Spain, France and Italy direct from a UK port. On shore, you can visit many of the major sites in Europe, such as the Colosseum and the Vatican in Rome, Basilica de Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence and the world famous Monte Carlo Casino are all possible in less than 7 days!

If you’re an art aficionado or history enthusiast, the Eastern Mediterranean is right up your street, offering a treasure trove of ports and destinations where you can indulge your particular passion. Itineraries include ports on the coastlines of Italy, Croatia, the Greek Islands, Turkey, Cyprus and the Holy Land.

Cruises in this region make lots of stops and attract people of all ages; from the sandy beaches of the Greek Islands to the dazzling mosques and palaces of Istanbul, there is something for everyone. You are unlikely to find sailings direct from the UK but there is a wide choice of cruises departing from Civitavecchia (Rome), Venice or other Eastern Mediterranean ports, some with flights from the UK included.

Mediterranean Cruises, run throughout the summer, though it is also possible to visit during the winter months, when you will find many of the main tourist attractions much quieter.
