Tunis, Tunisia

A shore excursion in Tunis will see travellers having the opportunity to discover the ancient ruins that are scattered across the coastline of Tunisia. Like many European countries, Tunisia has a rich heritage, home to some of the most historically captivating architecture in the world. Quaint market stalls are surrounded by endless sandy dunes, with holidaymakers feeling like they’ve stepped into a whole new world. When you have been given a detailed account of your itinerary, be sure to research your tour options and plan in advance, to ensure that you get the most out of your time in this magnificent country.

Santorini, Greece

Santorini is one of the most frequented cruise ports in Greece, and as you sail into the magnificent surrounds of this region, it is easy to see why. This magnificent Greek Island is located in the group of Cyclades Islands, and is home to cascading cliff sides that plummet into the sea below. Some of the best views in the world can be seen from Santorini, so take the time to simply relax, indulge your senses in a traditional Greek feast and bask in the magnificent scenic views before you. Santorini offers travellers the chance to taste some of the finest drops of wine in the world, so be sure to book-in for a wine tasting tour, if you are lucky enough to have a lengthy shore excursion in Greece.

Venice, Italy

The list of things to see and do in Venice is virtually limitless, and so they only problem you will have is deciding what to do first. Visiting the Great Canals of Venice is a must for all travellers and provides the perfect opportunity for capturing some memorable holiday photos. St Mark’s Basilica is also one of the most famed attractions in Europe, but like most ports of call in the Mediterranean, simply dining on fine food and wine is more than enough to suffice.

With such a vast variety of cruises to the Mediterranean available to travellers, it is important that you research your ports for disembarking. If you have your heart set on visiting a particular destination, talk to your travel agent at Cruiseabout to ensure that you will have ample time to make the most of an unforgettable shore excursion.
