Silversea Cruises to the Mediterranean
The Mediterranean has turned into one of the world’s most popular cruise destinations. And why shouldn’t it be? Beautiful weather, stunning beaches, centuries of history, and well-known culinary tastes define the region.
But not all perspectives of the Mediterranean are identical. Some cruise lines aim big and grand, while others, like Silversea, strive to take you behind the scenes. Silversea’s “insider look” starts with the popular attractions and then touches on luxury and exclusiveness, with excursions to the best museums and private afterhours events, chefs serving traditional dishes, and trips to vineyards – where you can taste the wine right from the source.
Of course, the Mediterranean region plays a major role in history. Three major empires – the Greeks, the Romans, and the Ottoman Empire – flourished around its perimeter, and in later years, the Renaissance brought about definitive inventions and works of art. History, however, serves as a platform for modern developments, and from Spain through Greece, the past exists side-by-side with the latest in architecture, fashion, and art.
Silversea cruises to the Mediterranean last at least four nights at sea, and are on one of the following vessels: • Silver Spirit • Silver Wind • Silver Cloud
All three provide spacious accommodations for 200 to 400 passengers, while Silversea’s luxurious features make time spent on board nearly as enjoyable as exploring on land. You’ll find several outdoor pools, multiple restaurants, bars, and lounges, a spa, library, shopping boutique, Wi-Fi spot, conference room, and lecture hall.
Eastern: Venice to Istanbul may seem like a short distance on a map, but it’s a centuries’ long tour through history, be it exploring Renaissance art, Roman ruins, learning about Greek philosophy, and touring old Turkish mosques. In between, the brilliant sun and azure waters make stopping at Balkan resort towns in Croatia and Montenegro a must. Depending on itinerary, you’ll visit Istanbul, Kavala, Athens, Volos, Thessaloniki, Venice, Croatia, Montenegro, Corfu, Katakalon, Santorini, Sicily, Slovenia, and Mykonos.
Western: A summer in St. Tropez or Ibiza? Time spent exploring the architecture of Barcelona, the cuisine of Southern France, and art and fashion in Italy? Satiate your artistic and leisure passions with a single trip. A cruise to the Western Mediterranean essentially covers it all with stops in Barcelona, St. Tropez, Monte Carlo, Rome, Portugal, Seville, Malaga, Cartagena, Valencia, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Florence, Cannes, Malta, Marseilles, and Tunisia.
Black Sea: Although a separate region, in character and geographically, the Black Sea flows into the Mediterranean. Around it, Eastern European resort towns attract tourists looking for sun, beautiful beaches, and warm water, but history and religion, too, play an important role. The region is supposedly the location of Noah’s Ark and Jason and the Argonauts. Ports include Constanta, Nessebar, Sinop, Sochi, Trabzon, and Odessa.
