The Mediterranean is one of the most popular cruise destinations and a Luxury cruise has something for everyone; endless beaches and sparkling seas, from vibrant cities such as Barcelona, the glamorous French Riviera with St. Tropez, Cannes, Nice and Monte Carlo to the cultural delights of Rome, Venice, Florence and Athens.
It is telling that nowhere the size of the Mediterranean has such a wide variety of historical, cultural, religious and incredible sights. The only problem may be, disappointment that you do not have enough time enough time to take it all in on a single luxury cruise.
When to go:
The main season for Mediterranean cruises is from May to October, when the weather is more reliable and at its warmest, but some of the cruise ships which sail in northern Europe through the summer reposition themselves to the eastern Med from September until May, so cruises in this part of the Mediterranean are available year-round
