Mid-Mediterranean – Adriatic Sea
Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and Albania all lie on the Eastern side of the Adriatic Sea and don’t forget Italy. 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. (Trieste Palace was where the Dragons were kept, and it goes on and on all the way to Dubrovnik.
