Why Choose a Cruise to The Mediterranean?

Whether you want to watch the sunset over Santorini, revel in the religious artwork of Rome, dance until the early hours in Dubrovnik or indulge in the café-culture of Cannes, the Mediterranean’s continuous appeal lies in its varied destinations that lie side-by-side. Why choose just one sun-soaked holiday spot when you can experience so many, on an incredible value Med cruise?

From the breathtaking Sistine Chapel in Rome to Antonio Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the Mediterranean is home to some of the world’s most treasured landmarks. Travel back in time at the Acropolis in Greece, recreate the famous pose at the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy and marvel at Palma’s royal Almudaina palace in Mallorca.

And it’s not just history buffs and sight-seers who will love our cruises to the Mediterranean – the region is known for its delicious range of cuisine, exquisite artwork and relaxed way of life. From friendly locals to traditional festivals and unique shopping experiences, a Med cruise offers something for every passion, taste and holiday-style.

With so many incredible locations to discover, choosing where to start your Mediterranean cruise is likely to be the only difficult decision you’ll have to make. Explore the Eastern Mediterranean on a cruise from romantic Venice and find yourself floating along the Grand Canal in a gondola one day, soaking up the sun in Malta’s historic capital La Valletta the next and finishing your trip with a touch of the exotic at Istanbul’s incense-soaked markets.

Those looking to experience the best of the Western Mediterranean can choose from a wide selection of cruises, departing from some of the Med’s famous city ports. Come aboard in the Eternal City of Rome before setting sail for some of Italy’s most dramatic landscapes, fall in love with the multi-coloured, hill-set towns of the Amalfi Coast, shop till you drop in Cannes luxury designer boutiques, perfect your tan amongst the glitterati on the beaches of Palma de Mallorca and end your Med cruise with a taste of authentic Spanish tapas in Barcelona’s backstreets.

Whichever side you pick for your Mediterranean escape, you’ll find the perfect, low-cost, Med cruise package at Cruise Nation.

Santorini

Highlights of an Eastern Mediterranean Cruise

No two of our Eastern Mediterranean cruise itineraries are the same, but each takes in the very best destinations that the divergent East has to offer. From the beauty of witnessing a sunset in Santorini to the old-world charm of Dubrovnik, discover five of the Eastern Mediterranean’s most popular locations.

Athens

One of the world’s most ancient cities, the appeal of heritage-listed historic sites, mythical gods and laid-back, Mediterranean lifestyle has kept travellers returning to Athens for hundreds of years.

Today, the sprawling city is a perfect blend of old and new: ruins sit next to chic new restaurants, centuries-old artefacts hang side-by-side with modern masterpieces and boutique hotels provide a fresh take on city-dwelling.

No Athens stop on a Mediterranean cruise would be complete without a visit to the Acropolis and the Parthenon, whilst those who want to indulge in some retail therapy should make for the Plaka – the city’s oldest neighbourhood, lined with pretty boutiques and jewellery stores.

Santorini

The Greek island of Santorini needs little introduction, thanks to its status as one of the most visited and photographed islands in the world.

Known for its spectacular sunsets, perfectly offset by the iconic white houses and blue domes, this is one Mediterranean destination to be marvelled at.

As you arrive on your Eastern Mediterranean cruise, you’ll be captivated by the romantic hillside houses, charming old-world feel and welcoming locals – including the many donkeys that are still used for transportation on the island.

Incredible sunsets aside, Santorini also has plenty of sights to keep you busy during the day. Explore the historic hilltop village of Oia, visit the ancient ruins of Akrotiri or take a dip in the clear blue waters that surround the Island’s beautiful, multi-coloured beaches.

Dubrovnik

The Eastern Mediterranean’s most charming old town, sailing into Dubrovnik is a magical experience – whether it’s your first, or fifteenth, time.

The city’s status as a popular tourist hub has escalated over the past several years, and once you step onshore, you’ll easily see why. Baroque buildings line the pristine streets, twisting stone steps lead to hidden restaurants and bars and the azure waters tempt swimmers even in the colder months.

Food lovers will delight at the wide variety of cuisine on offer, but it’s in the seafood restaurants where Dubrovnik’s unique tastes truly shine. After dinner, head for the city’s cliffside bar or take the scenic cable car to the heights of Mount Srd for one of the finest sunsets views in the Mediterranean.

Istanbul

The only city in the world to sit astride two continents, Istanbul is as fascinating as it is diverse. Both cosmopolitan and ancient, modern Istanbul still bares the marks of empires long since disappeared – from the Byzantines to the Ottomans.

Arriving in the Port of Istanbul at Karaköy, visitors are instantly charmed by this mix of influences and cultures. Witness the opulence of the Topkapi Palace – the former home of the sultan – before gaining a greater understanding of the past at the Istanbul Archaeology Museums.

The unmissable Grand Bazaar is one of the largest and oldest markets in the world, with over 250,000 browsing through the vast maze of stalls every day. Before you leave, don’t forget to stop by the city’s other famous market – the Spice Bazaar – to experience the intense colours, smells and tastes of Istanbul.

Venice

Romance, mystery and intrigue combine in one of the world’s most visited cities. The floating maze of streets and winding canals that cover the 100 small islands of Venice are easy to lose yourself amongst, but a short gondola ride will soon see you back at Venezia’s main attractions.

Unmissable sights include the hidden rooms and passages of the Dodge’s Palace in St. Mark’s Square, the tragically beautiful Bridge of Sighs and the incredible artwork of the Basilica.

Venice is also one of the finest cities in the world for food and drink. Avoid the tourist-traps and sky-high prices around the most famous sights and instead dive down a side street, where bars and restaurants are filled with local alfresco diners, sipping elegantly on Aperol Spritzes canal-side.

Highlights of a Western Mediterranean Cruise

From tasting “La dolce vita” on Italy’s Cinque Terre to snorkelling in Mallorca’s crystal waters, and rubbing shoulders with the A-List on the streets of Cannes, a Western Med cruise offers breathtaking scenery, delicious local delicacies and the chance to feel like a movie-star. Explore five of the Western Mediterranean’s most iconic destinations:

Barcelona

Barcelona

The cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, Barcelona is a city brimming with history, art, architecture and, above all else, incredible food.

The best tapas in the world can be found down some of Barcelona’s many hidden laneways and tucked-away squares, which can be perfectly paired by asking for a recommended local Catalan wine.

Those in search of great architecture can take their pick from the otherworldly Gaudi masterpieces such as the Sagrada Familia and Casa Mila, or the gothic beauty of the city’s old quarter, where Barcelona Cathedral’s intricate interior leaves even those non-believers speechless.

Before you set sail, don’t forget to visit the buzzing La Rambla for designer shopping, souvenirs and street food.

Palma de Mallorca

If fine white beaches, year-round sunshine and turquoise waters aren’t enough to entice you, the city of Palma, on the island of Mallorca, is also home to some of the most interesting and underrated historical site in the Western Mediterranean.

Tear yourself away from your sun-lounger for long enough to visit Palma’s exquisite gothic cathedral Le Seu, the impressive hilltop Bellver Castle and the lavish Palau de l'Almudaina, before eating like a local in the historic old quarter.

Rome

The Eternal City needs little in the way of an introduction, and with many of our Western Mediterranean cruises starting and finishing in Rome, you’ll have plenty of time to discover the city’s timeless appeal for yourself.

Whether you are eating the world’s best gelato outside the Vatican, exploring the grandeur of the Colosseum or being stunned in silence by the magnificent artwork of the Pantheon, Rome is a city that was made to be explored, and adored.
