What Is the Best Time of Year to Cruise the Mediterranean?

aerial view of a Mediterranean coastal town

Summer in the Mediterranean is hot, sunny, and beautiful, which means that millions of tourists gather there to soak up the coastal sun and sea on the beaches. That means that summer is by far the most crowded Mediterranean season. If you want to avoid those crowds, aim to travel in the spring (May/June) or fall (September/October). You'll avoid the crowds and enjoy lower prices on travel: These are great times to find Mediterranean cruise deals. Every season in the Mediterranean can be beautiful, but remember that in the winter, temperatures drop and the ocean becomes choppy.

How Much Would a Mediterranean Cruise Cost?

The most common prices for a Mediterranean cruise are between $200 and $1,000 per person per night. Prices can change drastically with each line, and of course, the length of your cruise will greatly affect how much you spend.

No matter whether you're looking for a 3-night, 9-night, 20-night, or 5-night Mediterranean cruise, you can count on CruiseDirect to help you find the best Mediterranean cruise deals. We guarantee the lowest prices, and we charge no booking fees!
