Helpful Tips to Know Before You Go

  • Depending on your port of call, you may or may not want to book shore excursions ahead of time. Many cities and locations are incredible to explore even without booking any tours, but others have signature sights or experiences that you'll need to reserve ahead of time. Be sure to think about the things you're most excited about.
  • Come prepared for walking. A European cruise is going to take you to incredible sights you'll want to explore on foot, and that means good walking shoes. Prepare with plenty of sun cream to ensure you don't burn while out and about.
  • Summer heralds the best weather for most of the Europe cruising options, but also the greatest crowds. Decide for yourself when in the year you wish to cruise, and consider choosing the off-season to have a calmer experience of the most popular sites.
  • Come prepared for a variety of dress codes. Some sites and fine dining establishments you may wish to visit may require more covering clothing, so it would be prudent to pack more than just beach-going garb.
  • The wonders of Europe are in the ports. You won't have many days at sea, so be sure to pick an itinerary that's focused on the ports and activities you're truly inspired by.

Things To Do

  • Sample local cuisine. The places you'll be calling at each boast a rich and delicious culinary tradition all of their own, and on your cruise, you'll want to try it all. From fine dining to street food and cafés, there are endless ways to try the local food. Depending on your itinerary, you can savour the foodie delights of the French patisserie, Italian pasta, Spanish paella, the Swedish Kottbullar, plus so many more. 
  • Discover magnificent cultural wonders. Many of the ports you'll stop at are full to bursting with outstanding sights, no matter whether you're choosing a Mediterranean, Scandinavian, Atlantic or river itinerary. Visit the Vatican in Italy, tour landmarks in Lisbon, and so much more.
  • Explore every iconic local experience you can manage. There's so much to discover, from visiting UNESCO world heritage sites to checking out unmissable activities unique to certain ports. Pick your perfect shore activities and do things that can be done nowhere else on Earth.
  • Take walks and tours. So many of the ports you'll call at are made to be discovered on foot, whether by fantastic walking tours of local cities or landmarks or by taking hikes to see outstanding sites of natural beauty. Pack good walking shoes and prepare to witness Europe's wonders unfolding before you.
  • Marvel at the stunning natural beauty of every region you visit. The islands and shores you will see are blessed with mountains, gorgeous rugged cliffs, rolling green hills, pristine stretches of shoreline and so much more. Gaze upon glittering waters or stare at the magnificence of the mountains you'll pass on a river cruise. No matter where in Europe you cruise, there are plenty of reasons to pack a camera.
