Mediterranean Cruises

With so many countries and thousands of years of history on the itinerary of our Mediterranean cruises, there are plenty of ways to discover this ancient sea. You can step into grand cities and laidback harbours, discover lively resorts and sleepy islands, stand before vibrant modern architecture or age-old wonders.


Your cruise to the Mediterranean may be a sophisticated jaunt to French Riviera and Italy’s Renaissance treasures. It may follow the fairytale Adriatic to Croatian gems and magical Venice. You could weave among Greek Islands filled with white-washed villages or even reach the imperial splendor of the Black Sea.


Many great civilisations once flourished around these shores. So a Med cruise offers the perfect opportunity to experience some truly iconic destinations. There’s the Parthenon on the Acropolis in Athens, Rome’s Colosseum and other imperial treasures and, in the western Mediterranean, Barcelona – a city renowned for its extraordinary architecture, especially Antoni Gaudí's famous cathedral, Sagrada Família.


Quite simply, everything goes. You can wander sociable plazas, piazzas and squares, admire Monaco’s yachts and supercars or painted fishing boats on Corfu. Watch opera in Naples, vibrant street theatre in Barcelona, or the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier in Athens. Discover the birthplaces of iconic artists, philosophers and writers, or simply follow your instincts wherever you touch shore next on your Mediterranean cruise.


Your taste buds are in for a treat all over the Med. You can sample Spanish tapas or Greek mezze, treat yourself to Italian coffee and gelato or Turkish tea and baklava. You can expect fresh fish and meats prepared to age-old family recipes, while olives, sun dried tomatoes and fruit all feature heavily in the region’s cuisine too.
