Where do Eastern and Western Mediterranean cruises go? 

Can you go to Greece AND Spain in one 7-day cruise?

Western Mediterranean cruises move around the Western side of the Italian boot, toward Spain, with stops in Italy, Malta, France, and Mediterranean Islands.

Eastern Mediterranean cruises sail toward Greece with stops in Croatia, Albania, Italy, and Montenegro.

Most 7-day cruises go to either the East or West side of the Med.  Only longer cruises or open jaw cruises will span the distance between East and West, hitting destinations on both sides of the Med in one cruise.
