There is no other place in the world with great tourist towns close to one another in the Mediterranean region. Actual ports might vary depending on the cruise ship taken and the packages they offer.

Travelers are always faced with the challenge of deciding between big and small ships. Big ships tend to visit big ports going to some of the best destinations in Florence, Rome, Barcelona and Naples. Some of the major cruise ships offering such experience include the Holland America, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Disney and Princess. If you prefer a more European feel, cruise the Mediterranean with ships from the region like the MSC Cruises and the Costa. These two are based in Italy and offer shorter and cheaper options. British cruises include ships like the Cunard and P&O that offer numerous sailings in the region. The Hapag-Lloyd is another luxury option offered by the Germans.
