Mediterranean cruises for 2013 – three great deals you’ll love


We share our top three Mediterranean cruises for 2013

Mediterranean cruises are always hugely popular because there is always something for everyone – vibrant cities, glamorous locations, cultural delights and of course, plenty of sunshine to boot.

If you’re thinking about planing a cruise holiday for 2013, and wish to sail around the Mediterranean, here are our three top picks from our current inventory.  We’ve based our choices on the fab locations and great deals on offer.

4 night western Mediterranean cruise onboard Norwegian Epic

Offer: Upgrade to balcony cabin rom £99 per person.

This affordable mini break is ideal for a couple with commitments who wish to squeeze in a short break in late spring.  This cruise will start in Barcelona, before you head to the “Gateway to Provence” Marseille.  After a day at sea you’ll visit Majorca, where pretty beaches, medieval cathedrals, shops, tapas bars and vineyards await exploration.  You will then return back to Barcelona before flying home to the UK.

Sails 1st May for four nights with Norwegian Cruise Line.  From £499 per person.

7 night cruise 1st package, exploring the eastern Mediterranean onboard MSC Armonia

Offer: Upgrade to outside cabin from £99 per person

Spend a week touring around the eastern Mediterranean on this cruise holiday.  This spectacular trip kicks off in Venice, before sailing down to Ancona.  You’ll then wake up in Montenegro before heading over to Corfu, then down to the port of Gythio in Greece.  From here you’ll visit Argostoli (also Greece) and then Dubrovnik in Croatia before sailing back to Venice.  This cruise is particularly exciting because it offers holidaymakers the chance to explore a wide variety of cultures and locations in just one week.

Sails 25th October for seven nights with MSC Cruises.  From £599 per person.
