A Mediterranean cruise guarantees an exciting mix of food, culture, fashion, history, sights and sounds as your cruise ship will travel to a number of different countries each with their own distinct flavor and personality. To top it all off, all this can be enjoyed in the warm Mediterranean climate beneath the bright sunshine.
Whether you're after sun-drenched beaches, quaint villages with winding streets and local markets or bustling cities you can experience it all with a Mediterranean cruise. Some Mediterranean cruises leave from Southampton which makes them ideal for people who would rather not fly to meet the cruise ship; it also means that you avoid any luggage weight restrictions. If you'd rather start your cruise in the heart of it all then you can fly to Venice, Barcelona or Palma, Majorca and hop on board from there.
