Choice of ships and destinations for Mediterranean cruise holidaymakers

Date Posted: 26 Feb 2010
There are many locations that individuals and families can head to when deciding that they want to enjoy a cruise holiday.

Alongside experiencing Caribbean cruises or a trip taking in the Baltic and Fjords environment, there is also the opportunity sample what the Mediterranean has to offer.

Member of boyband Blue and West End actor Duncan James is one individual that enjoys a cruise break to relax and fight off fatigue.

Writing for the Daily Mail, the 31-year-old revealed that he recently embarked on a Mediterranean cruise, taking in locations including Turkey, Greece, France and Barcelona.

The cruise liner chosen by Mr James to complete his journey was Princess Cruises, where he took advantage of the opportunity to go on a trip which barred children.

Climbing on board the Ruby Princess, he was particularly impressed by the opportunity to enjoy a few hours in the casino after dinner and the food on offer.

He highlighted that "the standard of cuisine is incredible and there is so much variety", while "cruise ships' best restaurants now rival many of the top ones in the world".

Alternate options for evening entertainment include the chance to watch a Broadway-style show or listen to live music.

Furthermore, he was a keen visitor to the Turkish village of Kusadasi, where he got to explore a "fascinating archaeological site".

Meanwhile, writing for the Liverpool Daily Post, David Mastin recently remarked that Naples was a must-visit destination for those considering a cruise holiday to the Mediterranean.

Sampling all of the delights of the Brilliance of the Seas vessel from Royal Caribbean Cruises, Mr Mastin took advantage of the opportunity to appreciate the history on offer in Naples.

The Mediterranean can also be enjoyed from a starting part in the UK, with the option of taking a cruise from Southampton.

Another destination that a family can travel to is the Canary Islands, which is regularly attended by the Independence of the Seas ship from Royal Caribbean Cruises.

Travellers can take advantage of some physical everyday activities ranging from rock climbing to ice skating, while those wanting to simply relax may prefer to visit one of the spa facilities featured on the vessel.

A surfing simulator and a mini golf course may appeal to younger cruisers, while the Timanfaya National Park could be enjoyed when the boat stops in Lanzarote.

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! "
