Spain not only provides year round warm climates and wonderful beaches, it is also rich in culture and architecture, making it is an ideal location to start your cruise from. Since 2005 cruises from Spain have become increasingly popular, particularly the Spanish ports of Barcelona.
Major cruise companies like Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Costa Cruises, NCL and MSC Cruises have positioned some of their most popular cruise ships from Spain. For 2012 Barcelona will see the mammoth Norwegian Epic sail from Barcelona as well Royal Caribbean Liberty of the seas, MSC Fantasia & Celebrity Solstice cruising from Barcelona.
The success of cruising from Spain is due to the large number of low cost airlines that have been introduced. This allows you to book a cruise only and then add your own cheap flight with the likes of BMI Baby or EasyJet.
Due to Spain’s growing popularity, additional Spanish ports have been added. You know have the choice to cruise to Malaga, Alicante, Seville, Bilbao and Cadiz to destinations like the Canaries, the Western and Eastern Mediterranean and even Egypt.
