The Mediterranean has become one of the most popular cruising destinations for the vast diversity in every port, from the gothic architecture and surrealist art of Barcelona to the natural beauty in Greece’s Santorini. The Mediterranean is famous for having the world’s greatest natural wonders and history-changing landmarks, where cruise guests can be completely enveloped in history and culture thousands of years old.
With several cultures in one place, a cruise through the Mediterranean provides guests with a sampling of European life and history. Explore the undulating coastlines and crystal clear waters at a leisurely pace from the comfort and convenience of a cruise ship.
The Mediterranean’s most famous ports include Barcelona, Marseilles, Rome, Athens, Santorini, and Ephesus, an ancient and culturally rich port in Turkey.
Athens is a popular port of call in every Mediterranean cruise, famous for being a center of arts and philosophy, as well as the Acropolis with the ruins of the Parthenon. Take a tour through the picturesque neighbourhood of Plaka, with neoclassical mansions built on the oldest street in Athens. A visit to Santorini is unique and memorable, with iconic blue-capped buildings in cliff-top villages, where guests can climb by foot or donkey to Fira to view the stunning Santorini caldera.
No cruise through the Mediterranean would be complete without a trip to Rome, by way of Civitavecchia. Rome is home to some of the world’s best known historical landmarks, with the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling mural, and the Vatican Museums. The Italian countryside and Tuscan landscape is perfect for a relaxing getaway with trips to various vineyards and wineries as well as Florence.
