Have you not tried using a cruise comparisom travel agent that gives you the opportunity to enter the month you want to go and the port you want to sail from - and see what results come back? Try Voyan.

Have you looked at Royal Caribbean, they do 2 itineries on Splendour of the seas,departing from Venice which you can purchase as cruise only. We did one of the itineries at the end of May this year and purchased our own flights to and from Venice. We visited Dubrovnik, Turkey, Santorini and Corfu, many of the other passengers on board were doing both itineries as a back to back.Good luck.

I think that for a request like this you ought to be talking to Cruise Agents. There are certainly cruises that you want and you will be able to get them "Cruise only" but you have to talk to agents or even direct with the Cruise Lines. People who respond to questions here are just experienced (and even inexperienced ) passengers and/or anoraks....Neil Dow.

The specialists for that area are Costa cruises -see their website and you certainly can easily book cruise only. They cruise mainly from two ports Savona nr Genoa or Venice - which is a magic departure port due to the fabulous cruise past St Marks Square and through the Venice lagoon. Costa is a great cruise line with super modern, clean ships but only go with them if you appreciate a mixed culture ship and mixing with other nationalities but if you only want Brits or Americans make another choice.

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

A Majestic Atrium the heart of the ship.

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...

MSC Loyalty Match scheme a hit!!

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

MSC have launched a new incentive to attract new customers and reward existing clients with an offer of matching customers loyalty level with competitors. Rather that just stop at matching cruise line loyalty levels, they have gone as far as matching loyalty levels for hotel chains and tour operators too.Clever move in my opinion, as I have many customers that specifically stick to a specific company as their loyalty levels are at the top level, so they love the perks they receive from their ...
