If you’re looking for a different type of holiday this year then you should definitely consider a Mediterranean cruise! Where you can relax in a blissful atmosphere, wake up to beautiful views every day and dine in well-catered restaurants while having attentive staff at your service. Sounds pretty perfect doesn’t it? Well if this sounds like your ideal holiday, then it’s time for you to experience the enjoyment of a Mediterranean cruise.
The world’s largest inland sea is surrounded by three large continents, also known as the Cradle of Civilisation. Mediterranean cruises are among the most popular types of cruises because you get the chance to visit a wide range of destinations such as resorts, historic cities and idyllic islands.
Cruises setting sail from the UK usually involve taking up a few days before actually entering the Mediterranean so will take around ten days or more. Fly cruises are an excellent option because they are very port intensive, sailing at night and docking during the day. Visiting six ports in a week is normal for a Mediterranean cruise; all you need to do is decide which one you want to go on – a Western cruise or an Eastern cruise.
A Western Mediterranean cruise is filled with Rivieras, island resorts and cities. The route will sail from Barcelona, Palma, Genoa or Rome. It visits ports on the Spanish coast and other popular stops include Majorca and the Balearics and both Sardinia and Corsica. If this sounds like the perfect cruise for you, then check out the wide range of Mediterranean cruises available from Cruise Kings.
However, if you’re looking for the full Aegean experience then an Eastern Mediterranean cruise will best suit your needs. Packed with islands to explore and surrounded by ancient sites and cities you’ll get the chance to see and visit most of the popular Greek islands.
