If you don't want to fly, why don't you take the ferry over to Liverpool. Fred Olsen are doing a cruise (on the Black Prince I think ) departing from Liverpool ( and back ) on 20th Dec for 16 nights going to the Canaries ( It'll be far warmer than the med at that time of year anyway ). This website shows Oceanview Cabins available. From all accounts it appears that Liverpool Port is not the most sophisticated or scenic port to embark on a cruise, but then hey-ho you can't get everything!.

I think your only hope is Dublin Airport & fly to a port where a Med cruise is sailing from. I am not aware of Med cruises ever departing from Dublin. Regards.

Well what a week it’s been with the collapse of Monarch, it has sent shock waves through the travel industry and here at our team have been working hard to ensure that our cruise customers have been looked after and that it has had a minimal effect on their cruise booking.I have been so sad and upset for all those employees waking up last week to find their job had gone…just like that!
