Mediterranean Cruises

A Mediterranean cruise holiday has something for everyone; a vast array of sun drenched beautiful beaches to recharge yourselves on, a huge variety of mouthwatering cuisine to savour as your journey progresses, bags of culture to feast your mind on and endless tantalising shopping to be seduced by!

Due to its proximity to the UK, easy access with cruises from Southampton and the possibility of shorter durations, Mediterranean cruises are an excellent choice for people wanting to introduce themselves to the whole concept of cruising on a first time cruise and indeed are ideal if you are not keen on flying to meet your cruise ship.

Taking a Med fly cruise offers a massive choice of itineraries from the major ports of the Western Mediterranean to the more intimate locations of the Eastern Mediterranean. One of the most popular choices is to take a cruise from Southampton with Royal Caribbean UK or P&O Cruises. Typical ports of call are Rome, Barcelona, the French Riviera and the Baltics. You can also take shorter cruises by taking a fly cruise departing from Barcelona, Rome or Genoa.

The Eastern Med cruises offer you a different side of the Mediterranean. With fly cruises from Venice, Rome and Athens you have a choice for seven to twelve nights cruises to the Eastern Med as well as twenty five night cruises from Southampton. The itineraries also differ to the Western Med, with ports of call including Greece, Turkey, Croatia and Egypt.

Mediterranean CruisesFor those who are happy to fly then why not start your holiday in the heart of it all with a cruise from Barcelona or a cruise from Palma, Majorca. If you are also wanting a really memorable way to entertain and holiday with your whole family then  take a look at our fabulous family cruise section.

If you fancy combing a cruise with a few nights in one of the Med's historic cities or by the sandy white beaches the stunning coastline offers, why not try a cruise and stay Mediterranean holiday?

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
