The Mediterranean is deservedly one of the most popular cruise destinations in the world, offering a rich and diverse selection of ports and attractions well-suited to people of all ages and interests. A gorgeous region, it stretches from Spain across to Turkey, with some of the biggest and most interesting cities accessible by ports across the coastlines.

Western Mediterranean

Some truly fantastic cities are always a fixture on Western Mediterranean cruises, with visits to such iconic destinations as Barcelona, Rome and Marseille often included on itineraries. Its cities and towns offer an enchanting mix of contemporary and classical architecture, along with many museums and landmarks telling the history of the region. The Mediterranean is a truly versatile region though and has more than its fair share of beautiful beaches and rolling countryside to enjoy too.

Cruises that travel the western Mediterranean focus on Italy, Spain, France and Monte Carlo and often extend to Portugal and Morocco. Mediterranean itineraries can even extend to the islands of Majorca, Sardinia and Corsica - giving each cruise a varied and interesting itinerary.

Western Mediterranean cruises are often a popular choice for a cruise and stay package. With many itineraries beginning in either Barcelona or Rome, it pays to take advantage of a hotel break as part of your cruise deal so that you have more time to explore the delights of these excellent cities.

Eastern Mediterranean

Cruises to the eastern Mediterranean are primarily focused around Greece, Turkey and the east coast of Italy, often including stops in Croatia, Montenegro and Malta. Cruises to the eastern Med are perfect for escaping to the sun or uncovering the rich history of the area.

Both Greece and Turkey are home to a wealth of incredible ancient ruins, from famous landmarks like the Parthenon and Olympia to the age-old temples to be found on the island of Rhodes. Malta is also well-known for being home to a wealth of historic structures and ornate churches for those with an interest in the past.

Travellers looking to unwind under the sun will doubtless enjoy the many beaches and islands of the region, all blessed with some truly amazing scenery.
