Cruise lovers will have an opportunity to sail deep into the Mediterranean later this year thanks to Queen Victoria
's 2010 itineraries.
Guests will be able to experience the region in "elegant style and sophistication" through the 12-day voyages, which will kick off and end in a number of charming ports.
The ship's operator Cunard Cruises
announced that the voyages, which are the highlight of Queen Victoria's 2010 offering, will feature several overnight visits in Venice, Barcelona and Istanbul.
Holidaymakers who secure their bookings as soon as possible will be able to enjoy savings worth hundreds of pounds per stateroom through a special offer for early birds.
As well as the aforementioned vessel, Cunard operates the luxury ocean liner Queen Mary 2
and can lay claim to running the only regularly scheduled transatlantic service.
The firm's new Queen Elizabeth
cruise ship is expected to enter into service in October 2010. It was recently floated at a ceremony in Italy where it is being constructed.
