There's a wide choice of cruise lines that operate Western Mediterranean cruises including Fred Olsen, P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises, and Saga Cruises. If you are looking for things to do while on a Western Mediterranean cruise; there is truly something for everyone in this region. Just about every cruise line offers a full kaleidoscope of shore excursions, though it is also very reasonable, not to mention simple, to put together things by yourself.
For instance, if your journey stops for a day in Barcelona, Spain, consider a Barcelona highlights tour that may feature a stop at the Gothic Quarter, Gaudis detailed and sculpted Sagrada Familia Church as well as many other urban areas in the city. The Montserrat Monastery is another option seeing as it is located only approximately 45 minutes outside of the city. Located as it is on the side of a mountain, this regal edifice will often be cloaked in mist, and the views available to you while driving up the mountain will be utterly stunning.
If Rome is on your itinerary, you are in for a true gem. Take an overview tour if you've never visited before and be sure that it incorporates a visit to the Vatican and St. Peters Square and Basilica. You may also wish to see the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain, as well as the Spanish Steps if time allows. The wonderful thing about Rome is that it is not only a sight to behold, and overflowing with religious tradition, but it is also an easy city to walk around. While you may want to enlist the help of a tour guide to see the many religious sites such as the Basilica and the Vatican complex, there is nothing to stop you doing your own self-guided route around other areas of the city. Be sure to visit the many quaint streets and maybe even rest for a bit at a sidewalk cafe, enjoying a coffee and just people watching.
If your ship calls at Naples/Sorrento, you will want to take a tour of amazing Pompeii, or better yet take a voyage to the beautiful island of Capri.
With so much available to you on a Western Med sailing, it is the perfect holiday for family groups where everyone's interests may differ. It is also the perfect cruise for those who prefer to see the sights and experience the unique cultures of each region visited.
