The kind of ship you will enjoy for your European vacation depends entirely on where you're planning the trip; but no matter which vessel you choose, Adventure Life guarantees comfort & top quality service. In the Mediterranean, we can help you arrange tours on luxurious schooners (like Le Ponant) or world class motor yachts (like Croatia's M/S Kleopatra). The river cruises along the tranquil Seine, Rhine, or Danube Rivers are another great way to see Europe. If you're hoping to travel around the British Isles, then the Lord of the Glens will even afford you exclusive access to the legendary lochs of Scotland. As you head into the frigid waters of the Arctic, you will either need an icebreaker (such as the technologically advanced 50 Years of Victory) or an expedition ship (like the research vessel Akademik Ioffe).
