Cruise Nation has released a cracker of a deal: a 6-night cruise around the Mediterranean over Christmas with return flights, for £449 per person. This package, regularly £749 per person, is one of the cheapest festive sailings we've ever seen.
Flights depart from London Gatwick on 20 December. Fly from London Luton for £479 per person.
The cruise is aboard the Costa Serena and starts in Savona in the north of Italy. The ship calls at Marseille, Barcelona and Civitavecchia (for Rome) on Christmas Day, where the ship stays overnight, before returning to Savona for the return flight on Boxing Day.
The price is based on two sharing an Inside Cabin on a full-board basis. Upgrade to an Ocean View Cabin for £100 more per person or a Balcony Cabin for £200 more per person. You can go all-inclusive for an extra £99 per person.
The family-friendly Costa Serena has five restaurants and 13 bars and lounges. There are also swimming pools (two with retractable covers), a 3-tiered theatre, a casino and a spa, complete with a large gym, a thalassotherapy pool, a Turkish bath and a sauna.
Transfers and baggage are not included. Transfers can be added for £38 per person, return, and baggage for £26-£34 per 20kg piece. Onboard gratuities are compulsary, and cost 7€ per person, per day.
