Unlock the Magic of the Mediterranean; A Region So Rich in History and Culture You Cannot Fail to Be Captivated

Fortunately, P&O Cruises offers so many different ways of discovering and exploring this fascinating region, where pomp and majesty still reign in the beauty of its cities. All seven ships in the P&O Cruises fleet spend their summers sailing from Southampton to this beautiful region, offering more breadth of ports and itineraries than most other cruise lines.

In the Eastern Mediterranean it is easy to picture a Greek tragedy being played out on the triumphal stage of temples and monuments in Athens, which evokes stories of ancient times round every corner; then you can pop into a modern-day restaurant in the little streets of the Plaka and dine on a meze of humous, tzatsiki and tender lamb washed down with ouzo.

The joy of a P&O Cruises holiday is the choice and variety of shore excursions, which are all led by expert guides. …
