Where to go on a Mediterranean cruise
One of the best things about cruising in the Mediterranean is that you can combine culture and history with areas of stunning natural beauty and, of course, good weather.
Some of the most popular destinations on such trips include ports in Spain, Italy, Greece and Croatia, where you can step ashore to visit some of Europe's most fascinating and picturesque cities.
Meanwhile, if you choose a cruise that takes in some of the islands, such as Mallorca, Rhodes or Madeira, you can also look forward to having the opportunity to soak up some sun on beautiful beaches.
Fred. Olsen Cruises offers some great itineraries for a two-week break, heading to locations such as Lisbon in Portugal before travelling on to Alicante, Palma and Menorca in Spain, rounding the trip off with a stop in Gibraltar.
Meanwhile, a longer excursion for 25 nights is available and will take you on a journey to some of the Mediterranean's highlights.
Among the ports of call are Sardinia in Italy, Iskenderun in Turkey, Limassol in Cyprus, Alexandria in Egypt and Algiers in Algeria.
Of course, shorter voyages of just a week can also be booked and will usually travel to France and Spain.
Soak up some culture on a Mediterranean cruise
Italy has to be one of the top destinations for a cultural cruise around the Mediterranean, with many ships stopping off at Venice, Rome, Livorno and Sardinia.
While your ship is moored up, you will have time to wander among the stunning architecture and even visit one or two of the museums and galleries for which the nation is famous.
Of course, you should not miss the opportunity to sample some authentic Italian cuisine before you head back to your ship.
Another wonderful destination for those seeking culture on their holiday is Croatia. The old city of Dubrovnik, for instance, is certainly worth a visit due to the many historic buildings located here, as well as the impressive walls that encircle the settlement.
