Experience an Eastern Mediterranean cruise in modern luxury.

From its stunning coastline and ancient architecture to its famous cuisine and charming culture, crusing through the Eastern Mediterranean can be one of the most rewarding travel experiences you’ll ever have.

The starting point for many of our Eastern Mediterranean cruises is Venice, Italy, and its historic canals. Here, you can experience an authentic Venetian gondola ride, as you cruise on the water through winding, narrow city canals, enjoying picturesque cityscapes while listening to a live serenade. En route to your gondola station, you’ll walk through St. Mark's Square, with a view of its iconic bell tower. Thrill to a 35-minute romantic ride along Venice's charming canals with an experienced gondolier. Glide under picturesque bridges and lively seafronts while accompanied by the sounds of an Italian vocalist and accordion player on this non-narrated tour.
