Quiet Season Mediterranean Cruises

A quiet-season Mediterranean cruise opens Europe to you in an entirely new way. Some say this is the best time of year to visit, with fewer travelers and more opportunities to maximize your time and travel dollar. Locals, too, relax during the off-season and are eager to chat. Low-season airfares, combined with Viking Inclusive Value, make fall and winter ideal for a getaway or a holiday cruise. View our Quiet Season Mediterranean cruises below.

Highlights of Quiet Season Mediterranean

For many travelers, fall and winter are the best times to visit the Mediterranean. The cities and villages of the coast put on a different face. Vineyards are put to bed after the harvest, the bustle has died down and the vast open squares of great cities can be seen in their more natural state: as an uncrowded gathering spot for locals, not for tourists. Visit in the quiet season and see the Mediterranean in a different light. Here are a few ways you will enjoy your journey:

  • Take in the sites more fully at a more relaxed pace
  • Linger at places that interest you, with fewer crowds to navigate
  • Enjoy more comfortable touring in cooler air
  • Celebrate a holiday in one of the world’s most appealing regions
  • Delight to festive lights and markets during the holiday season
