Mediterranean cruises

Sail south for longer, balmy days in the beautiful Mediterranean

Our Mediterranean cruises are a fantastic way to explore many different cities. Imagine the cost – and hassle – of organising city breaks in Rome, Florence, Lisbon and Barcelona… well on our itineraries, you can do it all on one enjoyable holiday!

But it’s even better than that – you’ll also discover beautiful, sun-kissed islands such as Sardinia and Minorca, combining busy day’s sightseeing with gentler days of relaxing. Visit the ancient sights of Spain and the mix of British and Spanish culture in Gibraltar on our new ship Spirit of Adventure. From foodies to art aficionados, lovers of ancient history or modern city breaks, our small-ship cruises around the Mediterranean Sea really do offer something for everyone.
