If you’re looking for a sunny getaway to escape from the cold English weather, have you considered a cruise along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea? Here are three luxurious cruises you can take to experience the great weather, culture and food of the Mediterranean and its unmissable cities and beaches.

Carnival Sunshine: Venice to Barcelona

Take a trip on Carnival Sunshine and experience some of the most stunning and fascinating locations in Southern Europe. The cruise lasts for twelve days, visiting five countries in total: Italy, Croatia, France, Monaco and Spain. City stops along the way include Naples, Rome and Marseilles, while travellers can also spend time relaxing on the beach during stops in Mallorca and Barcelona.

The benefit of travelling around the Mediterranean on a cruise ship is that even when you are between stops you can still enjoy the high life. Cabins range in price depending on what size and how many extra amenities you would like. Prices on the Carnival Sunshine start at £699 per person for an Interior Stateroom. However, if you want to splash out you can get an Ocean View Stateroom, an Ocean Suite or even a Balcony Stateroom. For a truly special trip, you can book the Grand Suite, which is a home away from home with its own television, luxury bathroom and VIP fast-track check-in.

MSC Divina: Mediterranean from Genoa

This cruise is perfect for anyone who is looking for sun, sand and sea, as it takes in some of the most gorgeous islands and beaches along the Mediterranean. Following an overnight stay in a top four star hotel, the journey sets off in the city of Genoa, Italy’s largest seaport. From there the cruise lasts 11 nights, and stops along the way include the busy city of Barcelona, the multicultural Moroccan city of Casablanca and the stunning Madeira Islands.

Accommodation on the MSC Divina ranges in price, size and levels of luxury. If you’re on a budget you can get an Inside Stateroom for just £699 per person but if you’re happy to pay a little more you can book a lovely Aurea Suite. The Aurea Suite has everything you could wish for to feel completely at home, including a bathroom with tub, interactive TV, spacious wardrobe, Internet and air conditioning. Once you've settled in, you won’t want to go back to normal life!

MSC Splendida: Mediterranean from Barcelona

This all inclusive cruise takes travellers around the Mediterranean, beginning and ending at Spain’s culture capital, Barcelona. This cruise takes you between two continents, as you will also experience Africa with a visit to Tunis, the capital city of Tunisia. Other stops along the way include Palermo in Sicily and Marseille in France.

Every traveller gets a great view on the MSC Splendida as all cabins are along the outside of the ship. If you want to catch the sea breeze without escaping the privacy of your own cabin, you can book a room with its very own balcony. All rooms offer interactive TV, mini bar and air conditioning, among other amenities.
