How to Cruise

Featured Destinations

From the pristine beaches and ancient ruins of the Eastern Mediterranean to the artsy and flavorful countries of the Western Mediterranean, this region is easily one of the most diverse in the world. Revel at Spanish and Italian architecture, soak up some sun in Greece, explore antiquities in Istanbul and Malta or get a taste of the French countryside on the outskirts of Nice, Monte Carlo or Cannes. Some Med itineraries dip down into northern Africa; the Canary Islands are also a popular stop for repositioning cruises.
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.

Hits & Misses From an Arctic Adventure on Hurtigruten's Spitsbergen
(11:00 a.m. GMT) -- We've just returned from an Artic Adventure with Hurtigruten to the top of Norway -- flying right up to Kirkenes -- which lies just 15 minutes' drive from the border with Russia. Snow was several feet thick on the ground and the temperature was at a balmy minus 14 Celsius, perfect for spending a night in the Snow Hotel. We then jumped onboard Spitsbergen, and headed south for a taster of what Hurtigruten call the "Classic Coastal Voyage" -- from Kirkenes to Bergen (or vice versa), calling in at 34 ports along the way (sometimes for just 15 minutes!). Hurtigruten has sailed this route for 125 years, providing a vital link to the isolated communities dotted along 1,250 nautical miles of Norwegian coastline.Here are our hits and misses from an Arctic Adventure with Hurtigruten.
