European Cruising Tips & Travel Guide

The Best of Europe
No matter which part of Europe you want to visit, Adventure Life is ready to help plan your dream vacation with some of the best cruises and expeditions out there. 
The Arctic: Get ready to explore the frigid North in style as you set out through these icy waters to see the fjords of Iceland, Greenland, and the legendary Northeast Passage across the northern coast of Russia, where Aurora Borealis can be seen.

Scandinavia: Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and Denmark comprise this northerly region of Europe, where Arctic wildlife like polar bears, seals, and whales swim in these remote waters.

The British Isles: Take a walk into Europe's medieval past as you explore the hauntingly beautiful castles that dot the rolling hills and highlands of Scotland & England; stroll along the quiet beaches of Wales; Get a taste for authentic Gaelic culture in Belfast, Northern Ireland; or experience the "luck of the Irish" in the green pastures of Ireland itself.

Western Europe: Breathe in the fresh Paris air as you tour this enchanting French city, or see the harrowing beaches of Normandy and the French Riviera at Nice. In Germany, the Rhine River will take you through the towns of yore, adorned by ornate castles & impressive cathedrals. A tour of the Iberian Peninsula will acquaint you with the world-renowned art and architecture that characterizes Spain & Portugal.

Eastern Europe: For half of the 20th century, a wall hid these bewitching countries from the Western world, but now you can experience all Eastern Europe has to offer as you explore the unique cultures that surround the Black Sea, like Russia, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Slovakia, the Ukraine, and other hidden gems of this part of Europe. The melodies of the Danube River will delight you as you navigate deeper into the heart of Europe's lesser known sites & attractions.

The Mediterranean: This expansive sea borders the southern coasts of Europe and the northern tip of Africa and is known for its temperate climate, delicious food, and excellent beaches. Visit the heart of the ancient Roman empire as you explore Italy, or see the ruins of the myth-ridden Greek empire as you cruise the Greek Isles. From Sicily to the Dalmatian Coast, a Mediterranean cruise is a mix of pure relaxation, fascinating archaeological sites, and some of the best cuisine you'll ever taste.

The beautiful blue Danube takes you through the countries of Central and even Eastern Europe. The Seine & Rhone Rivers highlight the best that France has to offer.

Mediterranean cruise - aboard a classic sailing schooner or a luxurious yacht - makes for a great way to relax among the sun-kissed isles of the Cyclades, explore the ruins of Greece, visit Croatia, or see all that Italy, Monaco, and Mediterranean France have to offer.
