Things to Do on a Mediterranean Cruise with Holland America Line


Mediterranean cruises with Holland America offer a chance to explore places you’ve only read about for years. There’s the romantic Grand Canal in Venice, the Dead Sea in Israel and the blue and white houses of Mykonos.

  • Flamenco with Dinner (Barcelona, Spain)
    Become immersed in Spanish culture when you attend this fiesta. First you’ll be served a dinner of seafood paella at an Anadalusian restaurant, and then sit back and digest your food with a performance of the Flamenco. Flamenco, native to this region of Spain, is not just a dance but also a style of music. After this show you’ll take a scenic drive before heading back to your Holland America cruise ship.

  • Nighttime Gondola Serenade (Venice, Italy)
    Experience the aura of love and the history of romance that Venice has to offer with a nighttime ride with your significant other along the waterways of Venice.

  • Pergamum Acropolis, Red Basilica and Asclepion (Dikili, Turkey)
    Visit the Pergamum Acropolis which sits 900 feet above the town of Pergamum, which was one of the region’s greatest cities back around 300 BC. The Acropolis was home to the second grandest library of the ancient world, after Alexandria in Egypt. This was also the city where parchment paper was invented. With this Holland America excursion you’ll also visit the Red Basilica, which is a red brick temple built to honor the Egyptian gods.

    Mykonos is booming at night when all the beachgoers freshen up for a night on the town. However, this party island also has plenty of history to explore during the day.
