Life is Easy on the Eastern Mediterranean

Eastern Mediterranean cruises combine European art and cuisine with the exotic touches of the Middle East — depending on where you sail. In any case, these itineraries are filled with breathtaking destinations, sweeping ocean views, and lots of fantastic cuisine.

Eastern Mediterranean locales can include Mykonos, Athens, and Santorini in Greece alone. Plus, there’s also Cyprus, Turkey, Venice, Italy, and even Croatia. Some cruises combine these ports with a shared Middle Eastern itinerary, with stops in Abu Dhabi. You’ll see beaches, islands, walled historical cities, valleys, and more.

The world’s most popular cruise lines sail the Eastern Mediterranean, such as Princess, Holland America, Azamara, Costa, MSC, Viking, Crystal, Celebrity, and Royal Caribbean.
