Subtropic Summer Cruising

The Mediterranean consists of a subtropic climate providing relatively mild winters and very warm summers, making it a perfect destination for small ship cruises. The temperature is moderated by nearby large bodies of water making for comfortable conditions throughout most of the year. The best time of year for small ship Mediterranean cruises is April through November.  

Flourishing Flora

Mediterranean climates rarely, if ever, see frost or snow; therefore plants such as palm, citrus and many broad-leaf evergreens flourish in contrast to the hardier deciduous and coniferous trees which dominate mid-latitude climates. It’s no wonder the cradle of civilization is found in the dry summer subtropical climate.
