Cruises in Tunis

Edit This
In Tunis, cruises can be booked everywhere and are one of the best ways to explore the Mediterranean Sea. Tunis is one of the main ports for Mediterranean cruises so booking a cruise is very simple. Depending on the length of time you want to spend on your cruise, as well as your budget, there is definitely something for everyone in Tunis. Keep in mind that as a major Mediterranean port, the majority of cruises are for major cruise lines so the cruises can get a bit pricey. There are private, smaller cruises available, you just need to poke around to ensure you get the best price.

Royal Olympic Cruises

Known by locals as one of the most inclusive and luxurious cruises offered on the Mediterranean Sea, the Royal Olympic cruise line offers guests a variety of cruises at a variety of rates. Ranging from a three day to a seven day cruise, these ships take you from Tunis to a variety of ports along the sea in France, Spain, Italy, Malta and Greece. The ship you will travel on is the massive, eighty six thousand ton Costa Mediterranea. This magnificent liner includes facilities and amenities such as a casino, multiple lounges and bars, a nightclub, three swimming pools, countless lounging and viewing decks, a spa and fitness center. With a crew of over nine hundred, the Costa Mediterranea is one that will ensure a relaxing getaway. Stunning views of the coastline with stops along the shore make this a cruise you will not want to miss out on.

Sousse and Port El Kantaoui

Two of the major ports in Tunis are the Sousse and Port El Kantaoui. Both ports offer tourists a range of shorter tours along the Mediterranean that are much more budget friendly than booking a five day cruise through one of the major cruise lines that operate out of Tunis. There are five different boat trips that are offered through this port. The three most popular are the Bedouin Feast, the Boat Trip and the Mini Safari. The Bedouin Feast is an evening cruise that offers a traditional Tunisian meal complete with wine, drinks and entertainment including acrobats and belly dancing. The Boat Trip is a full day mini-cruise that makes multiple stops along the coastline giving you opportunities to swim and fish. The Mini Safari is an overnight trip that has you spending the night in the Sahara desert. Stops include the cave dwellings of Matmata and the Roman Colosseum.
