MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE HOLIDAYS             Cruises Enquiry Form

Ah, the Mediterranean. See it once and the memories forever embrace your soul. See it a thousand times and you still yearn for more.  The Mediterranean is so enthralling, so absolutely seductive that, like the mythical siren's song, its spell is impossible to break.  An oasis of indulgent pleasure.  A haven for nature's glory.

Once you experience it, once you behold all its treasures, you will never be the same.  Our Mediterranean is that beguiling.

Mediterranean cruise

Each destination is a journey in and of itself.  A number of cruise lines offer a variety of cruises.  Select from the Greek Islands, Ancient Turkey, and The Holy Lands; or cruise the Western section and include Spain, France and Italy.

An extended Mediterranean cruise is simply a cruise vacation that combines ports from both the Western Mediterranean and the Eastern Mediterranean, typically beginning in Barcelona and ending in Greece or Turkey or of course in reverse.

WHY CRUISE THE MEDITERRANEAN?                  Back to top

The Mediterranean has numerous advantages over other cruising areas, with its diversity of cultures, peoples, languages and history.  There are so many ports ideally suited to cruise passengers, with something to interest everyone, in most cases situated close to where the ship docks.

Nowhere else can such an array of culture and history be found in such a relatively small area.  While the weather from Spring through the Autumn is almost invariably ideal, even in the winter months the weather is generally very mild. 


Some observers feel that within a couple of years, the Mediterranean will become a year-round cruise destination.   Indeed, the advantages of cruising the area outside the peak periods are certainly alluring, with the prospect of fewer crowds visiting the must-see attractions.

In a nutshell, there is nowhere else on earth where one can cruise to so many different countries within a short period of time and to sample as many flavours, cultures and retrace the footsteps of history as one can in the Mediterranean.   Luckily for cruise passengers, the choice and range of ships on which to so travel are getting wider each year!


All nationalities require valid passports; it is recommended that they are valid for six months beyond period of intended stay.  Please contact us with regards to which passports require visas that are not covered by the Captain’s blanket visa.
