A couple weeks ago the moment was finally there: after endless travel adventures around the world in more than 7 years I did my first cruise. Obviously super excited I boarded one of the biggest ships in the world: the Crown Princess in Barcelona. On this western Mediterranean cruise I explored in total 6 different ports in 4 different countries. In this blog I will give you tips for a cruise around the med and everything you need to know when you are about to book this trip. Also included is the itinerary of my 7 day Mediterranean cruise and excursion tips.
After almost 7 years traveling and visiting 100 countries I finally embarked one of those big ships I had always been willing to go on. My first cruise was a fact! In Barcelona I went on board the Crown Princess of Princess Cruises and set sail for a 7-day cruise on the Mediterranean Sea towards Rome. As I was extremely excited and wanted to go in with zero expectations I did not do any research about a what to expect on a first cruise. For you though I wrote this first time cruise guide so you get some inside tips and cruise do’s and don’ts.
