Your biggest difficulty planning a European cruise is narrowing down where you want to go. A Western Mediterranean itinerary usually includes stops in Barcelona and Monaco, as well as ports in Italy. Eastern Mediterranean cruises encompass eastern Italy, Croatia and Greece, and sometimes even Turkey and Israel. A Baltic Sea voyage brings you to Scandinavia and Russia; the Norwegian Fjords carry their own beauty. Don't forget about British Isles cruises, which allow you to visit castles in England, Scotland and London. For sun lovers, it's hard to beat the Canary Islands.
Europe by Sea – A New Approach to the Old World
Incredible Diversity – Cruise itineraries offer a wide diversity of ports to make your vacation truly memorable. On one Mediterranean cruise you can experience Spain, France, Italy and Croatia. Sail the Baltic Sea and you can visit not just the mesmerizing countries of Scandinavia, but also Russia and Estonia.
Leaving a Ship is Easier than Crossing a Border – Visiting many different countries by land is great in theory, until you have to deal with border crossings. A cruise ship makes it easy: all you do is walk down the gangplank, and you’re instantly in a new country; the cruise staff handles all border control matters on your behalf.
See History Approaching – Nothing compares to sitting on your veranda, watching an historic sea port like Barcelona or Stockholm come slowly into view.
