So you're after a Mediterranean holiday. If that's as far as you've got with your holiday plans and you can't quite decide where to stay, why not consider a Mediterranean cruise? Whether you're a tentative first-timer or a seasoned regular, you'll soon find that a cruise is the perfect way to explore this beautiful corner of the world.
Rather than settling for one location throughout your holiday, you'll be whisked from one magical destination to another, with plenty of time to discover the sights and tick off each new place as you go. And what an itinerary! On 7-night Mediterranean Cruises you could take in no less than half a dozen different destinations, with time to spend in each new city or port. With Royal Caribbean International for instance, you'll find various Eastern Mediterranean cruises - one of which calls at six different destinations including Marseille in France, Barcelona and Valencia in Spain, Palma in Majorca, and Rome and Genoa in Italy. How's that for a Mediterranean holiday?
What's great about cruising is that all of your dining, accommodation and facilities are usually included in the upfront cost of the holiday, so all you have to do is turn up and enjoy yourself. Although it might seem a little more expensive than your average package holiday, when you consider the all-inclusive nature of cruises - not to mention the sheer range of destinations you'll visit - it's actually pretty reasonable. On top of that you'll always find special offers and discounts too. Some of the best cruise deals can be found by looking for last-minute departures - typically leaving within the next few weeks - while other discountsare available on early bird deals for next summer or winter.
