Are you searching for Mediterranean Cruises?
Summer in the Northern Hemisphere is all about getting outdoors, soaking up the sun, and enjoying the long warm days. Many holidaymakers rush to the coast to enjoy the aquamarine waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Holidaymakers are often limited to one resort town, though. There is, however, an easier way to see much more of the beautiful Mediterranean.
Cunard Mediterranean luxury cruises will take you to exciting ports in the sparkling Mediterranean. These Mediterranean stops give you a taste of many different countries from Greece for eastern Mediterranean cruises to Spain in the West as well as France and Italy hugging the Northern coast.
All you need to do is board your gleaming ship, unpack in your luxury cabin and Cunard will do the rest. The Cunard Mediterranean fleet includes Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.
Your days on board are about a wide range of gastronomic dining, on-board activities, rejuvenating spas and toning up in the tip-top gym. Or you can opt to soak up the sun around the pool while sipping outrageously colourful cocktails.
Then there are yoga sessions or group dancing classes with ballroom specialists and don’t forget about the deck sports.
Be sure to keep abreast of the daily activity program and lectures on offer by world experts in a number of disciplines and you might be fortunate to have an on-board planetarium which takes you on a different kind of voyage – into our solar system and the universe beyond.
The evenings are all about donning some smart attire and enjoying cocktails in one of the busy pubs and bars followed by fine dining and wines in the restaurant of your choice. There is also the captain’s welcome party to look forward to. Then off to the theatre for a show, live music and dancing or a throw of the dice in the noisy casino. Next is the nightclub, a late night stroll on the moonlit deck and a coffee or nightcap on your way to bed where you are gently lulled to sleep after a day of fun and meeting new friends.
There is a wide range of cruises to choose from starting at 6 days right through to 14 and 21 day cruises. The ports of call are carefully chosen to ensure that your days will be filled with fun while investigating museums, markets, street cafes and local life. There is also a selection of shore excursions but be sure to book early.
