Coon Rapids Travel Agent Spotlight: Mediterranean cruise
Taking a cruise on the Mediterranean Sea is a great way to see the sites of southern Europe and is the feature of our Coon Rapids Travel Agent spotlight.
Boarding in Barcelona
I had the pleasure of sailing the Mediterranean Sea out of Barcelona. Oh Barcelona! I want to go back! It is amazing to wander thru the small alleys and shops only to discover the beautiful Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, which is a gothic style Church that was built in the 1300’s. Plan on taking time to see the sites in Barcelona before boarding for your Mediterranean Cruise. After exploring the city, we boarded our ship to head out to sea.
Port stop in Cannes, France
Another favorite for me was Cannes, France. I enjoyed walking the Promenade de la Croisette, where I did a little window shopping and star stalking. Aside from exploring the city, the Yachts in Cannes were quite amazing. I did see the luxury hotel Majestic Barriere which is a haven during the Cannes Film Festival. Your Mediterranean cruise is sure to stop in Cannes so I recommend walking the city and taking time for shopping when you stop.
Speeding through Rome
Rome was a short stop, but long enough to experience riding around Rome in the train! The high speed train! We were able to stop at the Vatican and hear the Pope speak at the Vatican. Rome is a city filled with history and faith and worth an excursion from your ship.
A Great Cruising Experience
This is just a glimpse of my Mediterranean cruise experience. What an excellent way to see a variety of destinations throughout Europe. There’s nothing wrong with sailing in a balcony cabin facing out the back of the ship! Beautiful sunsets and beautiful full views of the cities when departing in the evening!
