The Mediterranean with Lavender in Provence Bowls Cruise

The highlights of this FULLY INCLUSIVE cruise include visiting Malaga, Barcelona, Marseille, Mahon, Cartagena, Lisbon. 

You’ll get closer to some of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful and diverse destinations, the highlights of which, including impressive architectural and world-famous monuments, will be within easy reach of your ship’s docking locations.
An undoubted highlight is a specially-timed call at the fabulous French city of Marseille, from where you can tour to the Luberon region of Provence to see fragrant lavender fields in full bloom. Within Marseille itself, there’s much to discover too, including the lively Old Port and Cathédrale de la Major.
In Spain, you’ll visit Malaga, where rewards such as the Alcazaba Fortress and the Picasso Museum await; Barcelona, home to Gaudi’s iconic Sagrada Familia and bustling Las Ramblas; Cartagena, with its rich Roman heritage; and Menorca, for a taste of Mediterranean island life.

All of this PLUS playing Bowls against local teams in 3 ports of call, PLUS our exclusive onboard activities PLUS all Fred. Olsen’s Entertainment and Activities. In addition, this cruise is hosted by the world’s number one ranked bowls player, GREG HARLOW and your Potters Abroad hosts.
