Mediterranean Magic; Immerse Yourself in a Region Soaked in History, Culture and Romance


Beguiling, enchanting, fascinating and vibrant, the Mediterranean has entranced visitors for generations, which is why P&O Cruises offers a wide selection of ports in this wonderful location, and why its fleet of seven modern ships sails here regularly throughout the summer months

And now, thanks to P&O Cruises Free Cruise Connections, which offers you free travel to or from your cruise, it's never been easier to access this magical region.

The alluring flavours and colours, not to mention sights and sounds, make every P&O Cruises holiday to the Mediterranean seem out of this world, and with more UK departures than any other cruise line, there really is no choice when it comes to deciding which company should transport you to this captivating region.

You can experience breathtaking scenic wonders from exciting angles, too, through the myriad shore excursions offered. Imagine viewing Gaudi's eccentric architecture in Barcelona from a helicopter, or take a catamaran tour to swim in the inviting crystal-clear waters of Valencia.

Only in the Mediterranean can you experience the thrill of arriving at a different port of call nearly every day, dropping in on such ancient cultures as those found in Athens, the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt and among the ruins of Ephesus in Turkey.

Expect some thrilling contrasts, too, from the treasures of Florence and Pisa to a sizzling bazaar in Istanbul. You could be soaking up Second World War history around Malta's historic Grand Harbour one day and dipping into Sicily's medieval past as you explore its port of Trapani the next. The delights are endless.

In most cases you will be within a short walk of the main sights, but if not, P&O Cruises provides free shuttle buses to let you unlock the secret treasures of your destination at your own pace - or you could choose to take an exciting shore excursion.

Whichever holiday you choose, you know you are in expert hands, from the local guides who have in-depth knowledge of the places you will visit to the ship's dedicated staff who are waiting to welcome and pamper you every step of the way. …
