Holland America's Med Cruise Bargain

Holland America Line is offering an 11-night Mediterranean Explorer cruise from just £699 per person this month - and guests can upgrade to an Ocean View stateroom for only £1. This offer includes full board accommodation and is based on two people sharing a stateroom on MS Noordam.

The exciting itinerary kicks off in Barcelona on July 24 and heads first for Palma de Mallorca, the vibrant capital of Majorca, followed by cultural Marseille, home to the famously delicious ‘bouillabaisse’ seafood dish. The ship then travels east to Monaco’s glamorous Monte Carlo where guests can soak up the sun with the rich and famous. Journeying on to Italy, the next port of call is Livorno, a classic Renaissance city from where passengers have the opportunity to visit Florence and Pisa.

After a relaxing day at sea, a great opportunity for making the most of Noordam’s pools and sundecks, the ship arrives in Tunisia’s La Goulette (for the city of Tunis), where the famous Bardo Museum can be explored. The ship moves on to Palermo in Sicily where Roman, Norman and Arab influences combine, celebrating the cultures that are explored throughout this itinerary. The penultimate port of call is Naples, from where Pompeii and Capri can be visited, before arriving at Civitavecchia, the historical port leading to Rome.

Prices start from £699pp for an inside stateroom on a full board basis. Guests can upgrade to Ocean View Staterooms for just £1, with prices starting from £700. These prices exclude flights, although flights can be booked through Holland America request, with prices subject to availability.
