I went on my first ever AIDA cruise in May this year and I’m sharing my Mediterranean cruise review with you, as it’s been a great holiday. I always imagined a cruise to be something that older people do, but I was proofed wrong. There are so many destinations that the AIDA cruises offer and besides the Mediterranean, I now really want to go on a Caribbean cruise someday.

AIDA Mediterranean Cruise Review


The AIDA cruise starts on Mallorca and if you arrive early you already have the first day to explore Palma or the AIDAblu cruise ship before heading of to your Western Mediterranean cruise. If you want to go to the city, that is very easy through cabs waiting in front of the AIDA cruise ship and shuttle busses.


We spent the first day at sea, so there was plenty of time to try all restaurants and bars, relax by the pool and hit the gym. Also if you’re into entertainment, the AIDA cruise ship has a schedule for lots of activities that you can do on board.AIDAblu BalkonkabineDAY 3 – OLBIA, SARDINIA

Sardinia is amazing and the color of the ocean is just stunning. We spent most of the day by the beach and I think that is what you should do if you have the opportunity to enjoy white sand beaches with crystal clear waters.Olbia Strand SardinienAIDA Ocean CapriDAY 4 – PALERMO, SICILY

Palermo was very different from what I imagined it to be and next time I go to Sicily I will definitely don’t spent my time in Palermo, but explore the island instead.AIDA Palermo SizilienDAY 5 – NAPLES, ITALY – GETWAY TO CAPRI

Once at the harbor in Naples you get to the beautiful island of Capri very easily and I recommend you do that. Capri won’t disappoint with it’s incredible views. It actually was one of my highlights during our AIDA tours through the Mediterranean.AIDA Mittelmeerkreuzfahrt Capri ItalienAIDA Urlaub Blick über CapriDAY 6 – ROME, ITALY

It’s a one hour drive from the harbor to Rome but it is so worth it. One day is surely not enough to explore everything of this impressive city, but you get the idea. Throw a coin in Trevi Fountain, snap a pic at the Colosseum, and explore as much from the city as you can. AIDA Trevi Brunnen AIDA Kreuzfahrt RomDAY 7 – FLORENCE & PISA, ITALY

If you want to check out Florence and Pisa during your Mediterranean cruise you should rent a car at the harbor in Livorno. Drive to Florence first and leave at 2pm latest tot drive to Pisa, to take your tourist shot at the Leaning Tower of Pisa.AIDA Schiffsfahrt PisaAIDA Reise Florenz ToskanaDAY 8 – AJACCIO, CORSICA

In Ajaccio everything is about Napoleon, as he was born there. Just walk through the city and enjoy Corsica for the day.mediterranean cruise reviewDAY 9 – DAY AT SEA

I enjoyed the days at sea so much, as there finally was some time to relax by the pool. One of the best things during a Mediterranean cruise is that you can see lots of Dolphins on the way. Just need a bit of patience watching out to the ocean and maybe a little bit of luck won’t hurt either.AIDAblu Cruise ship PoolDAY 10 – BARCELONA, SPAIN

If you haven’t been to Barcelona go to La Ramblas and have some tapas. If you want to see the famous signs, like Sagrada Familia or Park Güll it’s for the best if you go on a sightseeing tour by bus.AIDA cruises BarcelonaDAY 11 – PALMA DE MALLORA, MALLORCA

Departure! Those holidays go over so quickly but I hope I could help you with my short Mediterranean cruise review. I can highly recommend doing one if you ever get the chance. Booking an AIDA cruise is fairly easy through their website.AIDAblu Mediterrane Highlights
