Where better to take a cruise than the Adriatic region of the Mediterranean? You’ve got everything you need from the sun, sea and culture, not to mention you’ll have endless amounts of exploring to get up to.

The Adriatic Sea is the body of water that separates the Italian Peninsula from the Balkan Peninsula, and is the northernmost arm of the Mediterranean. The Adriatic is also situated between the eastern coast of Italy and the western coast of Croatia, both incredibly popular cruising destinations.

Now here at Cruise Deals we like to give a little helping hand to all you fellow cruise enthusiasts, so we’re compiling a little list of our top three, best Med deals… you’re welcome.

Thomson Cruises

Let’s kick it off with this amazing cruise only deal onboard Thomson Celebration, where you’ll not only have the chance to pamper yourself in the two-storey health and beauty spa, but you’ll constantly be swaddled in the luxury you deserve.

This Croatian Classic Cruise (try saying that five times) will have you visiting some of the most incredible Adriatic highlights the Med has to offer, including the breathtaking 12th Century walled city of Dubrovnik. Crammed with architectural wonders you’ll be in awe of the Old Town vibe and landscape, including Onofrio’s Fountain built in the 1430’s. For all you Game of Thrones fans you probably already know that Dubrovnik is one of the key locations used for filming, so why not go ahead and channel your inner Khaleesi.

Thomson Celebration will depart on 22nd September 2016 for 7 nights, with cruise-only prices starting from £760 per person – all tips included, upgrade to All Inclusive for £10 per person per night*.

Holland America

This 24 night Magic of the Mediterranean cruise onboard the MS Eurodam is number two on our top picks around the Mediterranean. We know you’ll have an unforgettable cruise experience on one of Holland America’s most desired ships, with activities ranging from cocktail making classes to digital photography workshops – you’ll be spoiled for choice.

For three days of this enchanting cruise you’ll have the opportunity to explore the romantic city of Venice, where you’ll be minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Piazza San Marco, also known as St Mark’s Square. You’ll also witness the best of Italy’s culture and city life, and why not wind down with a gondola ride and soak up all Venice has to offer.

The Magic of the Mediterranean cruise will begin in Barcelona on the 5th July 2016, prices start from £1,698 per person – free upgrade to ocean view from interior*.

And for you film buffs out there Venice’s infamous Film Festival will be taking place from August 31st to September 10th, just another reason why you need to get cruising.


Hop on the Silver Spirit and get treat like a Queen or King with this Silversea, Venice to Venice 10 night cruise. The Silver Spirit is a ship like no other with all of the award winning hallmarks of a Silversea cruise experience, including brand new venues for dining and entertainment. Elegance will simply ooze from every aspect of your cruise experience, along with a rejuvenation atmosphere that will make you feel like a brand new person.

On this one of a kind cruise you’ll have the opportunity to sample the wonders of one of Greece’s most popular destinations Corfu, where we know it’s charming villages and architecture will catch your eye immediately. If you’re a beach sort of person… let’s face it who isn’t really, then you’ll be spoiled for choice with plenty of crisp, sandy beaches to relax on or even take part in some thrilling water sports.

We just have to mention that unlike some other Med cruises you’ll have the chance to visit the stunning island of Hvar, a destination that is a rare port of call and definitely a must to see.
