Eastern Mediterranean Cruises will take you through thousands of years of enchanting history, with long, lazy summer days and balmy evenings that encompass the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. From picturesque ports and harbours, ancient ruins and historical monuments, busy markets and bustling boutiques, experience it all as you journey dreamily through the Mediterranean.
Imagine the charm of a quaint village steeped in beauty, the sun shining as bright bougainvillea sway in the wind, a splash of pink on the beautiful white washed walls. It’s true what they say; an Eastern Mediterranean cruise allows you to explore the beauty of the coast’s most coveted towns and ports, in the most relaxed and serene way.
The Eastern Mediterranean roughly encompasses a broad range of territories, including Italy’s Adriatic coast, Croatia and the Dalmatian coast, the islands of Greece, Turkey’s Istanbul and the Black Sea.
Whether you want to sample the ancient archaeological delights or a beach lover’s paradise, cruising the Eastern Mediterranean provides the ideal opportunity for everyone to enjoy its wonder.
Windswept Mykonos has enjoyed soaring status in the last few years. Its rugged terrain is dotted with chalky olive bushes, granite stone, windmills and blinding white-washed buildings — all bordered by beach and backlit by an unflinching blue sky. Dance the night away in one of the many cosmopolitan bars and clubs, and be sure to hit the popular Paradise Beach. It welcomes a diverse crowd, with sand-side bars that serve colourful cocktail combinations whilst the music sings out. The spectacular dance clubs on Mykonos host world-renowned DJs and stay open until well past sunrise, perfect for those who like to party.
Set midway up the spectacular Dalmatian Coast, the Croatian city of Split is fortunate enough to have escaped a history of conflict and natural disasters relatively unscathed and now stands proud as one of the jewels of the Adriatic. A popular destination for eating and drinking, Split is also host to a number of ancient monuments whose history can be traced back to Roman times. Don’t miss Diocletian’s Palace, some of the most imposing Roman ruins in the world, that have not only survived but still stand with pride.
The fjord-like channel that leads to Kotor protects the walled, medieval trading port, also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Montenegro’s most famous town offers a blend of ancient histories and antiquities – along with more laid-back treasures, such as beaches and villages – making for a fantastic array of holiday options. In the summer months people pour into the town, with the yachts of the super-rich filling the marina, and for anyone who likes their towns romantic, historical and stunning, Kotor will be the highlight of their Eastern Mediterranean cruise.
