Cruise – Mediterranean
Some of the most ancient civilizations flourished around the Mediterranean. It was opened as a highway for commerce by merchants. Under the Roman Empire it became virtually a Roman lake and was called Mare Nostrum. Later, the Byzantine Empire and the Arabs dominated the Mediterranean. Products of Asia passed to Europe over Mediterranean trade routes.With the opening of the Suez Canal the Mediterranean resumed its importance as a link on the route to the East. The development of the northern regions of Africa and of oil fields in the Middle East has increased its trade. Its importance as a trade link and as a route for attacks on Europe resulted in European rivalry for control of its coasts and islands.
