ALBA Tours


The value is incredible, the experience is beyond compare.
A trip to Europe is the stuff of dreams for many, and a cruise on the Mediterranean a particularly big draw. Imagine, waking up each day to new sights and sounds – opening your eyes to see the cliffs of Santorini or the gondolas of Venice – and all the while being able to sit back and enjoy superior service and amazing amenities: the gourmet meals, the fine wine, and the incomparable views. These are experiences that are indeed beyond compare… and completely within reach. In fact, a Mediterranean cruise offers what is easily the very best bang for your travel buck.

Experience & Expertise
Enter ALBATours. With almost 40 years of experience of providing comprehensive vacations in Italy and along the Med, ALBATours offers quality, flexibility, and above all else, value. When you take a Mediterranean cruise with ALBATours, you don’t just get a cruise, you get a completely customized cruise package.

We take care of everything, from start to finish
It starts with your direct flight from Toronto to Venice or Rome, where you are then picked up and taken to your MSC ship. After that, you are wined, dined and are free to enjoy all your ship has to offer without having to lift a finger. And just like that, while you sleep, you are transported from one city to the next… and you do it all at a really great price. In fact, there would be no way to enjoy the same exceptional value if you were to book a hotel room in Europe for every night of your trip, on top of having to get from one city to the next.

Mediterranean memories
ALBATours offers Eastern and Western Mediterranean cruise packages with partner MSC Cruises, which operates the youngest fleet of ships in the region. Starting in either Venice or Rome, you can head east and discover Dubrovnik and Istanbul; you can visit the ruins of Ephesus, as well as Athens’ ancient Acropolis. Head west and discover Antoní Gaudí’s Barcelona, vibrant Naples, historically rich Genoa and so much more.
