Explore Mediterranean
Overview
The Mediterranean evokes images of golden sandy beaches, fresh seafood and stunning natural beauty.

A cruise around the Mediterranean allows you to sample the landscapes, local food and laid back lifestyles of the Spanish Costa's, the French and Italian Rivieras, the Balearics and North Africa. How you choose to cruise the Mediterranean and which countries you visit is up to you - there is so much choice that you're bound to find the itinerary for you.

Cruises in the Mediterranean tend to fall into three broad categories:

Eastern Mediterranean/Aegean Sea cruises visit ports in Turkey, Greece and its islands, such as Rhodes, Santorini, Mykonos and Crete. Ships travelling this itinerary on seven-day cruises often depart from Piraeus (Athens), Greece, or Istanbul, Turkey, though some longer voyages sail from ports further west.

Western Mediterranean/Southern Europe cruises sail among the cities and villages of Southern Europe from the Adriatic to the Straits of Gibraltar, including Venice, Naples, Civitavecchia (Rome) and Genoa in Italy, Monte Carlo in Monaco, St.Tropez in France, Barcelona in Spain and a host of others, ranging from small villages to major cities.

Southern Mediterranean cruises visit the more exotic ports along the coast of North Africa from Morocco to the Holy Lands, including Tunis in Tunisia, Tripoli in Libya, Alexandria in Egypt and Haifa in Israel, among others.

Due to its proximity to the UK, easy access with cruises from Southampton and the possibility of shorter durations, Mediterranean cruises are an excellent choice for people new to the concept of cruising or for those not keen on flying to meet their cruise ship.

Rome, Italy
Venice, Italy
Venice, Italy
Explore beautiful Venice on Italy's north-east coast. This city built on water is a popular tourist destination due to its gondola rides, delicious cuisine and stunning Gothic architecture. A maze of winding canals, you can sail up the Grand Canal to visit the stunning Palazzo Ducale and Basilica di San Marco. See works of arts from Bellini and Titian at Gallerie dell Accademia, then head to Scuola Grande di San Rocco to see the intricate and captivating way Tintoretto depicts Old and New Testament scenes. Many canal-side bars host live music that you can enjoy as you dine on fresh seafood dishes and prosecco. Make sure to try Venetian cicheti — similar to tapas — which include dishes such as soft salami and smoked swordfish.
Palma, Majorca
Palma sits on the south coast of Balearic island of Majorca and is the island's capital city. The streets of this vibrant port city are lined with an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars, galleries, shops, and heritage buildings. Explore the narrow alleys and lanes of the old town, before spending time at the impressive Palma Cathedral. Indulge in retail therapy on Avenida Jaume III, Passeig de Born, and the streets around the Placa Major. Palma Aquarium, Bellver Castle and the Joan Miro Foundation are well worth a visit, too. The dolphin, sea lion and parrot shows at Marineland and Poble Espanyol — a collection of Spain's famous buildings in miniature — are great for family times. Or why not take a scenic train ride to the town of Soller or travel inland to the Caves of Drach?
