Boasting dozens of languages, half a billion residents, and over 25 countries in an area less than half the size of the United States, Europe could easily be considered the most culturally diverse continent on the planet. During a Europe cruise, nature enthusiasts will be awed by the icy blue fjords of Norway and Ireland's Cliffs of Moher. The archaeologically inclined will delight in the ruins of Troy, or Delos, revered as the birthplace of Apollo and Artemis. The list of "must-sees" on a Europe tour are as varied as its visitors. A trip includes such classical destinations as Venice, Athens, Spain, London and France, but a cruise to Europe also invites travel into the Arctic, Turkey, Serbia, as well as the treasures of Africa's Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia and Cape Verde. Experience the majesty of Europe travel and find your own off the beaten path European adventure.
