Looking at a map of Europe, it’s not surprising to want to visit and explore all of its old cities. But you don’t have to take multiple train rides or book different hotels. There’s a more convenient—and fun—way to travel, and that’s by going on a cruise. With European cruises, you can hop to various European ports very easily, while you enjoy the crisp breeze aboard a luxury ship designed solely to make your stay unforgettable. And you can simply hire a car service to take you for a quick tour before your cruise’s departure!
Usually, a cruise like this will start at south Hampton and set sail to Paris. After that, you can then go south on a Mediterranean cruise or go north towards Scandinavia.
It’s always a good idea to go south, and explore the Mediterranean Sea that the ancient Romans considered as the Roman Empire’s lake. Your options include getting to Barcelona and seeing the magnificence of the Sagrada Familia Cathedral. You can breathe in the glamor of the French Riviera in Montecarlo, and follow the steps that the celebrities take. You can even reach Rome, the eternal city and the home of works of art like the Sistine Chapel.
Forget about the photos you see online. The sights you can behold with your own eyes will stay with you for a lifetime. Whether it’s a romantic cruise for two or a fun and educational trip for the whole family, a Mediterranean cruise is simply one of the best there is.
Northern European Cruise
Once upon a time, southern Europe quailed upon the arrival of the formidable Vikings from the North. But today, you can go north and see the land that spawned such love of adventure. Here you can see the beauty and the ruggedness of Scandinavia, while you enjoy the cities and laid-back attitudes of locals in Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. Explore the landscape of Iceland and you’ll certainly find more than just ice.
Discover the beauty of Berlin, and see for yourself how underrated Helsinki is. And you may even go as far east as St. Petersburg, and understand why the locals consider it the most beautiful city in Russia.
But you don’t have to hop on a plane to Southampton to enjoy your European Cruise. You can leave in one of the main ports in Florida and end up in the Old World, and you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back in time as your cruise ends in Lisbon in Portugal or in Spanish towns like Vigo and La Coruna.
A trip like this will give you lots of time to enjoy the ship’s amenities as well. Cruise ships aren’t merely passenger ships—they’re designed to be fun and relaxing at the same time.
During the day, you can enjoy various games such as bumper cars, ice skating, inline skating, scuba dive training, mini-golf, zip lines, and rock climbing. You can also just relax in the spa, or savor the cuisine at the world-class quality restaurants on board. At night, you can play in the ship’s casino.
But you don’t need to have a winning card to realize that if you’re aboard one of the European cruises, you’re one of the luckiest people in the world.
