Royal Caribbean Mediterranean Cruises

A Mediterranean cruise is sure to awe and mesmerize any would be traveller as well as provide a good history lesson on ancient European history and culture on this once busy trade network. Royal Caribbean is one of the world’s most exciting cruise lines offering good value holiday cruises with entertainment programs for adults and children of almost all ages.


Explore the Greek Isles and discover the works of the once dominant and mighty empires of the Greeks and Phoenicians. From the Acropolis of Athens to the Suleymaniye Mosque (the Blue Mosque) and a host of other Greek and Turkish landmarks, there is something to appeal to everyone. Or book a Western Mediterranean cruise and explore the ruins of Rome’s Colosseum, once famous as a gladiatorial arena and venue for mock battles. In Barcelona, feast your eyes on the incomplete Spanish basilica Sagrada Familia by Gaudi.

Royal Caribbean is renowned for being family friendly and their association with Dreamworks takes their children's entertainment programme up that extra notch, with the kids able to meet characters like Shrek and Kung Fu Panda. There is plenty for every family to do on board the ship with the H2O Zone, waterslides, the climbing wall, the kids club, surfing simulator, shows and much, much more.

Don't stay on board when the ship docks. This is a famous playground for the well-to-do so it's worth going hunting for the sighting of a celebrity or two. Shop the same boutiques as the rich and famous for clothes, wines and jewellery. Take a trip to Suquet Hill in Cannes or a leisurely stroll along promenade de la Croisette.

Mykonos, Greece

Be enchanted by Greek mythology when you visit this renowned landmark, as you learn about the slaying of the Giants by Hercules as well as visiting Apollo's birth place.

Messina (Sicily), Italy

The legendary home of the Mafia so you might want to keep an eye out for guys in oversize tracksuits. The only unfortunate thing the Mafia has failed to control are the earthquakes that have ravaged this area. Traverse Piazza del Duomo to see Orologio Astronomico clock as well as the main cathedral, capish!

Ibiza, Spain

Good time + beautiful people = Ibiza. Beach party, club party, whatever your party and whatever time of day, this is where you want to be. So get your party shoes and go rock it!

Ravello
