Here's a chance to hop on a plane to Barcelona and then sail around the Mediterranean for less than £25 a night. For £249 per person, this deal from Cruise Nation packs in a 10-night cruise, a pre-cruise hotel stay and return flights, all for up to £380 less than usual.
When can I go
Flights depart on 15 January, 2014. Travel on 2 March for £20 more per person or on 4 January and 2 March for £30 more per person.
After landing in Barcelona, guests will spend a night at the Acta Mimic hotel in the Old Town, close to Las Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter.
The following day, guests will sail from Barcelona to Marseille in the southeast of France, Savona, Livorno, Civitavecchia for Rome and Palermo (all Italy). Next, the ship heads to the Maltese capital of Valletta, Tunis -- Tunisia's capital and largest city -- and Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands. The cruise ends back in Barcelona for the return flight home.
Refurbished in 2010, the Grand Holiday features three restaurants, including two main dining rooms and one self-service buffet, and a choice of six bars. Other facilities include a 2-deck show lounge for large-scale cabarets and shows, a casino and the Santai Spa and Beauty Center.
Baggage and transfers
Transfers and baggage are not included. You can add overseas transfers for £14 each way per person, though public transport may be a cheaper alternative. Baggage costs £28-£34 per 20kg piece.
