The Mediterranean ("Middle of the Earth") enabled trade for the Egyptians, Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Arabs – to name a few – since the start of history. Museums on its shores display recovered sea relics from these ancient civilisations. Its ports are gateways to the treasures of Egypt, Turkey, Greece and Rome. Call at modern resorts on the Cote d'Azur, the Principality of Monaco, and islands of France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Malta. Some of the key ports are Barcelona, Civitavecchia (Rome), Venice, Athens and Istanbul. Cruises broadly group as Western Mediterranean, Eastern Mediterranean, Black Sea, and Holy Land (Palestine/Egypt). Where will you visit first? Ancient Rome and the Vatican, the Acropolis of Athens, the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, unearthed civilisations of Turkey, or Egyptian megaliths? Well, just plan for a second and third cruise.

All the major cruise lines and small ships visit this region. Cruises sail from the UK, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Oslo and Bergen. Generally cruises visit either the Baltic Sea states or the North Sea fjord coastline. The latter usually spend 7 nights around the sub-Arctic fjord coast of Norway. Longer cruises reach further north to the Arctic regions of Norway and/or include Iceland. If visiting St Petersburg look for an itinerary that gives you one or two nights’ stay to allow for worthwhile on-shore tours.

Sailing is year-round in the Mediterranean. Embark from the UK or one of the Mediterranean ports. Consider on-shore tour options offered by the cruise line or local tour operators. On some cruises the ship stays overnight in port to allow for more time to look around, say, cities like Athens or Istanbul. Can you plan a pre- or post-tour to allow for a longer stay in a city? Smaller vessels offer premium/luxury cruising, off-the-track small ports, and overnight stays where you need more time to explore on shore.
