The cruise season in the Mediterranean is coming to an end

About one more month and it is over for cruising in the Mediterranean. Most ships will leave the area and make their way to the Caribbean or South East Asia. A few ships will stay to face the high waves and the colder weather.

In this article we show you a few ships we encountered on our last Mediterranean cruise. Most big cruise lines were present: Aida, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Costa, Regent, MSC, Láustral, Celebrity, Norwegian, Princess and Azamara.

Nog ongeveer één maand en het is voorbij het cruisen op de Middellandse Zee. De meeste schepen gaan het gebied verlaten en kiezen voor de overtocht naar het Caribisch gebied of Zuidoost Azië. Enkele schepen zullen hier echter blijven om de golven en het koudere weer te trotseren. 

In dit artikel tonen we foto’s van enkele schepen die we op onze laatste Middellandse Zee cruise zijn tegen gekomen. De meeste grote cruise maatschappijen waren van de partij: Aida, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Costa, Regent, MSC, Láustral, Celebrity, Norwegian, Princess and Azamara.

  5. I have often thought of coming to Barcelona and taking that cruise back to US for the winter season. Prices are wonderful for this transatlantic crossing. When do they usually leave?

  15. Mooie foto's van deze prachtige schepen Filip, ik zou best zo'n cruise willen maken, maar dat kost wel een flinke duit lijkt mij.

  17. het zijn allemaal prachtige schepen Filip. Ik heb in de week gelezen dat toekomstig in Venice de grote cruiseschepen niet meer binnen mogen lopen. Er wordt een nieuw kanaal of zo gebouwd.
