Discover a range of fascinating destinations in Italy, Greece and Turkey with this deal from Major Cruise: £499 per person for a 10-night Eastern Med cruise with an award-winning cruise line. That's up to £450 cheaper than we found elsewhere.
The price includes return flights from London Stansted with checked bags, return ship transfers, 10 nights aboard Norwegian Jade with all meals and snacks, plus US$100 per stateroom onboard credit.
Norwegian Jade is run by Norwegian Cruise Line, which has been voted Europe's Leading Cruise Line for the last five years at the World Travel Awards. Departing from Civitavecchia (the port for Rome), the ship sails to Greece and Turkey before returning to Italy. Travel on 21 November; 12 December; 23 January, 2013. Click here for more information.
We particularly like the fact that this itinerary gives passengers the chance to visit the archeological sites of Olympia (from Katakolon) and Ephesus (from Izmir)**, as well as stopping in great cities including Athens (from Piraeus), Istanbul (where the ship will stay overnight) and Naples.
When you're not discovering ancient civilisations, check out Norwegian Jade's Stardust Theatre with Las Vegas-style productions, the nightclub on the higher decks with views of the ocean on three sides and the 2-deck spa. The usual sport and leisure facilites, such as golf driving nets, swimming pools, mini golf and a jogging track, are also available.
Oceanview Staterooms are £50 more per person and Balcony Staterooms are £200 more. Balcony Staterooms come with US$150 onboard credit. Travel for £539 per person from London Gatwick on 12 December; or on 2 January from London Gatwick and London Stansted.
