Coast of Corsica

One week is just enough time for a pretty nice Mediterranean cruise out of Barcelona. This August there are over 20 7-day cruises scheduled to depart from this port city in Spain. You have your choice of sailing aboard ships operated by Norwegian, Seabourn, Celebrity, Cunard, Royal Caribbean and Princess.
