I need 5 cruises that you can join in Malta and visit some other
Mediterranean places, for example Sicily, Crete, Sardinia and
Corsica(just examples). The cruise must end in Malta or a city served
by Air Malta, so I can fly back to Malta (the whole thing must start
and end in Malta, one way or the other). The itinerary should last 3-5
days. The purpose of the cruise for me isn't to visit Malta, it's to
embark on a cruise for someone who is already in Malta.

Hello webuserid,

There are indeed a few cruise itineraries which depart from Malta. 
However, they are not short journeys of 3-5 days, but instead lasting
from 7 to 11 days' duration.  At the very least, it would have to be a
seven-day cruise.  Would these still be of interest to you?  I also
found a 5-day journey that begins in another city (covered by Air
Malta) and ends in Malta.  Would that be of use for you?  If so, would
other 5-day cruises beginning somewhere accessible by Air Malta be of
interest also?  Overall, there are not many choices existing for
cruises from Malta, so your flexibility will be key.  There are not 5
choices that exist for your strict requirements without beginning and
ending somewhere accessible to Malta (but not Malta itself), or
beginning from Malta and lasting for seven days.

I think you are asking the impossible!

Lots of Med cruises call at Malta but none seems to start and end there.

It's enough to make a Maltese Cross.

Also, 5 days is rather short for a Med cruise.

Of course, someone will now prove me wrong!

I do hope so but if I am right, you might consider joing a cruise from
somewhere else that stops at Malta in 5 days time ... if there is such
a thing.

Let's get this straight.

1) You are in Malta
2) You want to go on a cruise from there for 3-5 days
3) You want to get back to Malta using Air Malta 
...(presumably you have staff discount)

I think that I'm missing something.
