The sights, the sounds and those smells - it's all alluring in the European countries that lie on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. A 2014 Seabourn cruise to the Mediterranean will leave your camera, your belly and your brain full from such wonderful experiences as spending a day exploring the towns of picturesque Positano and amazing Amalfi or learning about bullfighting at a bull breeding farm in Cadiz, Spain.
A cruise to these cities and ports is all you learned in high school come to life. Do you remember learning about the Renaissance in high school history or art? Well take a journey to the Sistine Chapel to marvel at Michelangelo's masterpiece painted ceiling. Were you taught about the Iliad and the Odyssey in your literature class? Visit the Acropolis in Athens to learn about those Greek gods. And in Home Economics, did you have to make pizza? Well visit the birthplace of the dish in Naples.
Aside from experiencing and seeing the sights you learned about in school, Seabourn aims to take its passengers to unexpected ports (and smaller ports with less crowds and built up tourist industries) to uncover the true taste of these European gems. A stop in Bonifacio on the island of Corsica will introduce you to the Lion de Roccapina, a collection of granite on the shoreline that has formed the shape of a relaxed lion. A stop in Trapani, Italy will afford you a chance to visit one of three ancient cities, Segesta, Erice and Selinunte.
A Seabourn Mediterranean cruise is quite a treat, and for 2014 Seabourn is offering a multitude of sailings, from week long journeys focusing on Greece or Italy, to month long voyages that travel as far east as Dubai or as far west as Brussels. Take some time to chat with your Cruise Web cruise consultant to sort through all of the options Seabourn provides, and find the 2014 Mediterranean cruise for you.
