Europe - Mediterranean Cruises

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 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. Read more

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. 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.

Destination Tips

  • Considering travelling early or late in the summer season for less crowds. Many European countries as well as the USA have school breaks over this time.

  • Rome's famous seven hills – in fact, there are nine – offer some superb viewing points. A favourite is the Palatine Hill, where Romulus supposedly founded the city and where the ancient Roman emperors lived in unimaginable luxury.

  • Sailing the Greek Islands is so beautiful. Stunning Santorini has small alleys with eateries and markets galore, white buildings with blue roofs all hanging off cliff faces.
