Mediterranean cruise- first week of May?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

Looking to take a Mediterranean cruise the first week of May 2018 and am looking for some tips. The cruise we are looking at would be leaving from Rome, and would be traveling to Venice, a couple places in Croatia, Greece, Malta, and back to Rome.

My questions are:
1. Is the first week of May an ideal time to go on a Mediterranean cruise?
2. What would the weather be like?
3. What should I (a mid 20's woman) pack?
4. Any other advise?

We would be in Europe for 4 weeks. A day in Rome before the cruise, a 12 day cruise, three days in Rome after the cruise, and then an additional two weeks traveling through Spain and Portugal.

Am looking for advise for the cruise specifically, but would appreciate any advise for the whole trip (especially the packing!), as this is my first trip spanning more than two weeks!

Thanks in advance!!
