France, Italy, Spain
Stretching from Gibraltar in the West to the Black Sea in the East and from the French Riviera to the North African coast, the Mediterranean Sea is home to some of the world's oldest cultures and some of it's most beautiful cities. Soak up the sun on the Spanish Balearic Islands of Mallorca and Ibiza or walk Las Ramblas in the Catalan capital of Barcelona; discover the Italian way of life in Florence or visit the stunning Trevi Fountain in Rome. From the medieval walled city of Dubrovnik in the Adriatic to the Parthenon in Athens and the mosques and minarets of Istanbul, the Mediterranean offers almost unlimited opportunities for relaxation, exploration or adventure.
Your choice of cruises is similarly varied - you can fly to the Mediterranean to join a cruise from many different departure ports, or sail directly from Southampton for a 14 night (or longer) voyage.
