Mediterranean Cruise Highlights

Whether you're looking for history, art, or adventure, the Mediterranean has something for you. Tour Barcelona's architectural wonders, like La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell, or visit the Vatican and Michelangelo's famed Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. Hike to the many ruins throughout Athens, like the Acropolis and the Parthenon, and revel in Florence's art at the Uffizi Gallery and the Museo di San Marco. And of course, take a dip in the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean.

Popular Mediterranean Cruise Ports

This region includes some of the most culturally and historically rich cities in Europe. Here are a few can't-miss destinations to visit on a cruise to the Mediterranean:

  • Mykonos, Greece: Stunningly serene with its white-washed buildings, blue-domed houses, and sparkling beaches, Mykonos is a must-see while in the Mediterranean. Lounge on a private beach, ride an ATV through the island's hills, or indulge in delicious, fresh Greek food at an oceanfront restaurant.
  • Venice, Italy: Imagine yourself moseying down a canal on a romantic gondola ride or strolling through cobblestone streets, gelato in hand. Venice is one beautiful sight after another - St. Mark's Basilica, Piazza San Marco, and Scuola Grande di San Rocco are just a few.
  • Dubrovnik, Croatia: Surrounded by walls dating back to the 13th Century, Dubrovnik is an interesting, historical town dotted with churches, cafes, monasteries, and shops. Visit the Arboretum and Rectors' Palace, or take a cable car up to Srd Hill for a beautiful view of the city.

When is the Best Time to Go to the Mediterranean?

With its warm, tropical temperatures, the Mediterranean is an attractive vacation destination for most of the year. In fact, cruise lines sail to the region year round, though the bulk of voyages are between March and October. If you are looking to avoid crowds, travel during the spring or fall; these seasons also offer more mild temperatures than July or August.

What Cruise Lines Go to the Mediterranean?

The Mediterranean is a popular cruise destination, and as such, most cruise lines sail there, from large, contemporary lines like Royal Caribbean Cruises to small, luxury ones like Silversea Cruises. Here are a few with plenty of sailings throughout the season:

  • Costa Cruises: Costa Cruises sails to the Mediterranean year round, and considers the region home. Travel to Eastern ports - Venice, Santorini, or Kotor, or Western ones like Barcelona or Ibiza on a Costa Cruise. This Italian line offers plenty of kids programming, spacious cabins, and eco-excursions for those looking to try something adventurous with no environmental impact.
  • MSC Cruises: Choose from dozens of ports in Spain, France, Italy, Croatia and Greece on an MSC cruise through the Mediterranean. MSC's staff leads shore excursions to significant archaeological sites, world-class museums and monuments, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, aquariums and more.

Norwegian's signature Freestyle Cruising is perfect for families or laid-back travelers looking for a relaxed cruising environment. Choose from a four-day Western Mediterranean cruise, a 20-day Eastern Mediterranean and the Gulf cruise, or plenty more in between.
