The Mediterranean is the most popular cruise destination for British passengers seeking a great holiday with guaranteed good weather. And one of reasons Mediterranean cruising is by far the most attractive for the British is that passengers from the UK can conveniently sail straight from the UK or take fly-cruises via ports such as Palma, Crete, Barcelona and Civitavecchia (the port of Rome).
Mediterranean cruising accounts for nearly four out of ten UK cruise passengers, with even more expected as cruise lines use more and more ships due to the diverse cultural appeal of the Mediterranean.
Another great bonus of a Mediterranean cruise is not just the number of cruises on offer, but the sheer variety of cruise lines, ships and itineraries available for holiday makers and the proximity of the UK to some of the world's most wonderful tourist sites. Whether you want to sail on a small and intimate cruiser or a megaship with every attraction on tap, all this is readily available if you choose a Mediterranean cruise.
Western Mediterranean cruises from Spain or Italy allow passengers to explore Africa, while Eastern Mediterranean cruises provide the opportunity to visit Greece and the Greek islands, Turkey, Croatia and even places as far away Egypt.
