Travel Challenge: A late-season Med cruise
Friday 07 September 2012
Each week we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific break. Today: a week-long Mediterranean cruise, departing in the last week of September. Prices are per person, based on two people sharing. Each includes an inside cabin with meals onboard.
