Mediterranean Cruises

The "Cradle of Civilisation", the Mediterranean is blessed with idyllic islands, historic cities, glamorous resorts and summer sun. It is enclosed by three continents, making it the world's largest inland sea. Most cruises to the Mediterranean are 14 nights or longer if sailing from the UK, so for a shorter Mediterranean cruise they a fly-cruise is ideal for you. Fly-cruises will generally include a port every day and sail overnight to ensure you make the most of your itinerary.

When To Visit?
Cruises visit the Mediterranean all year round, though the most popular seasons for cruising is May to October when the temperatures are at their highest.
