Cruise Select

From the Rock of Gibraltar and Spain's sundrenched southern and northeastern coasts, along France's southern shores and Monaco, to Italy's western coastline, the western Mediterranean is a veritable treasure trove of history, and boasts colourfully charming coastal resorts, cosmopolitan cities, picturesque fishing villages, alluring islands, and plenty of glamour.

Cruising along the Western Mediterranean, each port offers splendid art and architecture, rich wines and fabulous food - from paella and Cava to pasta and Chianti. Most Western Med cruises will take you between the iconic and vibrant Gaudi landmarks of Barcelona and the ancient imperial treasures of Rome, although you may well admire the pastel colours of the Amalfi coast, find the artistic wonders of the Renaissance in Florence, the chic glamour of the millionaires' playgrounds of Monte Carlo, Nice, Cannes, and Saint Tropez, and unearth an unique moment in time during a visit to the ruins of Pompeii.

Blessed with favourable weather, you'll find a Western Med cruise at any time of the year, whether sailing from the UK or flying to join the cruise, although most departures are between May and October, generally ranging from seven to fourteen-day itineraries. The Western Med makes for an excellent combination with the Adriatic or even further afield to the Eastern Mediterranean, uncovering more beautiful destinations on Europe's sunny, southern shores.
