Mediterranean – Adriatic Sea – Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and Albania all lie on the Eastern side of the Adriatic Sea. Cruises in this part of the world can leave the UK but it is more likely the ships are home-ported at Malta, Naples, Majorca or Venice using their airports. This is a very special area and digs into the history, religion, and mythology, not least the Game of Thrones.
