How did this Mediterranean cruise ports website come about?

My name is Martina and this website is the result of 7 exciting years of professionally cruising the best Mediterranean cruise lines, ships and destinations but you can read more about that unforgettable part of my life on the About Me page.

Being a cruise port lecturer, I have been privileged to spend lots of time in numerous European cruise ports time after time.

Whether I wanted it or not, I became extremely skilled in getting around these Mediterranean ports.

Now, my mission is to pass on my knowledge on to you and empower you in deciding how to best spend your day in port according to your affinities and your budget!

All the articles on the Mediterranean cruise ports easy are the product of the first-hand experience in helping cruise guests get around the destinations. Read them, use them and once you get off that gangway yourself, you will feel like you’ve been there hundreds of times before.

Of course, you can also use them to show off, sound like a real Mediterranean cruise guru at the dining room table and impress your fellow cruisers ;)

"Thanks to Martina and her wonderfully informative website, I have learned lots of useful tips about Venice, and Dubrovnik (three of our ports of call). The "voice" of Mediterranean Cruise Ports Easy is that of a friendly travel agent! It makes the information easy to remember."
