Save up to £1,000 on a Med fly cruise with Holland America Line

 Overnight stays in Istanbul and Venice

Get the most out of late summer and make great savings on a 12 night Mediterranean holiday with Holland America Line. Departing on 28 August 2014, the Venice roundtrip cruise is perfect for exploring the best of the Med when temperatures are still high but summer holiday crowds have dispersed. This cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam starts from £1,079pp, based on two sharing an inside stateroom, and includes return flights, transfers, and the full board cruise.

Setting off from Venice, the first port of call is Katakolon in Greece, gateway to Olympia, followed by Piraeus, from where guests can easily visit Athens. The ship then cruises The Dardanelles to Istanbul where guests will enjoy an overnight stay in port, giving them extra time to explore the rich and varied history of this city. Next stop is Lesbos, followed by Kusadasi in Turkey, from where the ancient ghost town of Ephesus, dating back to the first century BC, can be explored. The ship then continues onto Santorini followed by Argostoli, where guests can enjoy pristine beaches and fantastic local wine.  Finally, the ship returns to Venice, where passengers will experience an overnight stay in port to finish the cruise.
