Western Mediterranean and Atlantic Islands cruises offer guests the unique opportunity to visit a myriad of European countries, each boasting a unique blend of history, food and entertainment. Visit the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel in Rome, or relax at a local winery in St. Tropez. Spend some time in Barcelona’s downtown promenade one day and stroll along picturesque beaches in Cannes the next. Discover the scenic fishing villages and colorful vistas on the volcanic island of Madeira, or explore the natural aquarium that surrounds the Azores.
Western Mediterranean and Atlantic Islands cruises will typically call at ports in Spain, France and Italy, and may also visit ports in Portugal, Monaco, Tunisia or Morocco.
The Western Mediterranean and Atlantic Islands cruise season is from late April to October, although a few ships cruise this region year-round.
Western Mediterranean and Atlantic Islands cruises are typically 7 to 14 nights in length.
Because you'll need to fly a long distance to reach your port of departure, we suggest that you arrive at the port city at least one or two days in advance of your cruise. This will give you time to rest and get oriented before boarding the ship. Most cruise lines offer pre-cruise hotel packages.
