Not sure about sailing from Newcastle, most of the cruises from Newcastle go to northern Europe.. The Calypso sailing from Cyprus is adult only and other ships during May/June are adult only but these are fly cruises from Palma.

The answer to your question is YES & NO! Thomson actually cruise from Newcastle around the Baltic and Fjords, but if you want to cruise the Med "ADULTS ONLY" then you have to fly out to Cyprus from Newcastle Airport and join the CALYPSO to cruise around Turkey, Egypt and Israel! Please be very careful though, and if you do decide that this appeals to you, have a VERY close look at the CALYPSO before you book! As I think has already been mentioned, P&O have both the Arcadia and Artemis sailing from Southampton on "Adults Only" cruises to the Med. all through the year. That is what I would recommend personally. I would much rather catch a coach or drive a car down to Southampton than tackle flights to and from the Med.! Happy cruising.

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...
