Europe Cruises

Cruises to Europe

Your biggest difficulty planning a European cruise is narrowing down where you want to go. A Western Mediterranean itinerary usually includes stops in Spain, Barcelona and Monaco, as well as Italy. Eastern Mediterranean cruises encompass Italy, Croatia and Greece, and sometimes 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.

    First time cruisers, picked the Spirit primarily on price. Was a bit concerned initially by reviewers who wrote off the ship as being old and tired. Although we had an inside family cabin, we were happy with the size and condition of the cabin. ... Read more

    We wanted a smaller ship without a lot of kids. Plus the cruise we chose visited the ports we wanted to see. It all fell into place. Crew to guest ratio was almost 1:1 (I would guess 5:7). Food was excellent; unusual and expertly prepared. Buffets ... Read more
