The Mediterranean, a region synonymous with trade, exchange and encounter, has always attracted travellers. From Corsica and Sicily to the Cyclades, its islands are simply enchanting. Its beach-, cove- and steeply cliff-lined shores leave the kind of memories that last forever. Its cities, from Barcelona to Istanbul, bustle with people and activity, and paint a picture of the millennia-old history of this legendary sea. Embark for a Mediterranean cruise and enjoy a taste of the "dolce vita" as you experience your exotic escape.
