Mediterranean Cruises

The Mediterranean is all things to all people, and there’s no better way to explore than on a Mediterranean cruise. From incredible culture and architecture, to great food and wine aplenty, seaside cities with shopping streets scattered with coffee spots, every destination forges its own identity. And the beaches. Oh, the beaches! From vast golden swathes to the tiny pebbled coves, you will love exploring each location.

So, where exactly will you visit on a Mediterranean cruise? Well, this depends on the itinerary and how long you plan to sail – but rest assured, wherever you go and for however long, a truly memorable holiday awaits.

Ibiza, for example, was once hailed as the party island of the Mediterranea but has now shed its glow sticks in favour of an altogether more adult vibe. Yes, there are still pockets of pure party hedonism to be found in Playa d’en Bossa and Ibiza Town, but this is an island that has far much more to offer.

A little further east, there is the incredible mainland Italy, where ancient cities such as Rome and Pisa are within easy reach. A little further south you may encounter Sicily on a Mediterranean cruise, where you’re guaranteed a foodie reawakening from the moment you step ashore. There’s nothing finer than a bowl of pasta con le sarde by the sea; who knew that sultanas and sardines were such a great match? Find yours in Cefalù on the north of the island – an ancient fishing port full of character, charm and arguably more restful than some of its neighbours on the Tyrrhenian coast.

If you opt for a Mediterranean fly-cruise with P&O Cruises, there’s every chance it will start in Malta. Home to Valletta, the tiniest capital city in Europe, this island spans just 20 miles by 10 – you won’t find a single lake or river here, but not that it matters. The Maltese islands archipelago is brimming with culture and a resident population who are about as friendly as they come. 

Then you will encounter the gorgeous Greek mainland, as well as a fair few of its islands. From sun-drenched beaches to snow-sprinkled mountains, it may sound like a cliche, but there really is something for everyone in this part of the world. It epitomises everything that’s great about holidaying in the Mediterranean: the sea, the sand, the sunshine and the souvlaki, it’s destination waiting to be savoured in every sense of the word. 

A Mediterranean cruise is a chance to sample a smorgasbord of rivieras, capital cities, archipelagos and coasts in a week or two of blissful relaxation. What are you waiting for?
