Cruising to Europe is the most relaxing way to see more of these legendary lands on one unforgettable holiday.

Imagine the thrill of spending a day in one of the world’s most glorious cities, only to discover a spectacular new horizon the next day. Sail these storied waters with the cruise line designed to immerse you in the destination and find out why Princess Cruises has been awarded Best Cruise Line in Europe.

You’ll discover the beauty of the Adriatic and AegeanSeas. Sail from Barcelona, Athens, or Rome on this 21 night voyage savouring cuisine and ancient ruins of Italy, seeing the whimsical architecture of Spain and immersing yourself in white-washed villages and beaches of the Greek Isles.


Visit Istanbul: The capital of vanished empires, Istanbul is a true crossroad, the only city on Earth to span two continents. This meeting place of Europe and Asia, of Christian and Muslim, is one of the great adventures a traveller encounters. Browse the stalls of the world's largest bazaar, explore ancient mosques and churches, and gaze at the stunning jewels in the Topkapi Palace.

Late night in Mykonos: The island's nightlife, a glittering whirl of coloured lights, music, and parties.  Mykonos town features hip boutiques, restaurants, jewelry stores, souvenirs, taverns and cafés. The island's famed windmills are found just south of the waterfront.

Enjoy time in Barcelona, Rome and Athens:

  • Barcelona is one of the world's greatest treasures. Vibrant and earthy, commercial and cultural, this city of two million residents is the capital of Spain's autonomous region of Catalonia. Stroll along the wide, tree-lined promenades of Las Ramblas and marvel at the spires of Gaudi's Basilica La Sagrada Familia.

  • Rome has been a magnet luring the world's greatest artists, architects, and philosophers since the days of the Caesars. The ancient capital of the Western World and the centre of Christianity for nearly 2,000 years, Rome provides an inexhaustible feast. Visit the ruins of the Forum, view the splendours of the Sistine Chapel, or climb the Spanish Steps, once the heart of Rome's Bohemian Quarter.

  • The past maintains a vibrant presence in the cradle of Western civilization. Atop the Acropolis, the serene Parthenon sails above the commotion of the modern city. Then there is the hustle and bustle of the modern city, a metropolis of 4.5 million that spreads out from the foot of Mt. Lycabettus and across the plain. Packed with busy shops and lively tavernas, modern Athens is a colorful counterpoint to classical Greece.

Visit 7 countries with 15 different port of calls for a really immersive Mediterranean experience.  

Short on time: This itinerary is amazing to experience the Mediterranean at its best but if necessarythis itinerary can be split into 7 or 14 day cruised departing Barcelona, Athens, or Rome. Speak to a holiday advsior for further information!
