Europe is a marvelous place to cruise for many reasons. Whether you’re a first-time visitor to Europe or you’ve visited many times, European cruises allow you to see the art, history, and natural beauty of the region without having to navigate the train stations and roads or spend lots of time figuring out where to eat and sleep.
Here’s why you should cruise around Europe:
Sites are easily accessible
Many of Europe’s most popular sites are easily accessible to people choosing either a river or ocean cruise. Most of the major cities in Europe were built on the water. And those that are not can easily be reached via a short train or bus ride.
An efficient way to travel
Since Europe is quite compact, cruising allows you to see many sites and cities efficiently. Most of the time, your cruise will be sailing at night, arriving at a new city first thing in the morning. That means you can enjoy a full day in each city. You can take advantage of the guided tours offered by your cruise line or go off and explore on your own. Either of these are a more efficient choice than spending time getting between cities or finding a car park.
Travel in comfort
Unlike taking a large bus tour, train trip, or driving holiday, you’ll only need to unpack your belongings once when you cruise. If you’re a little nervous to travel in countries where you don’t speak the native language, cruising can also be a good choice for you.
Travelling involves long days, whether you’re walking around Rome or seeing the Canary Islands on a cruise. You’ll know that you can head back to your ship and enjoy a delicious dinner and watch a show or have an early night when you’re finished seeing each new city.
If you’re super busy, you may not have time to plan many different destinations. When you book a European cruise holiday, the itinerary has been prepared by people who are experts in the best things to see and do in Europe. That means you can sit back and relax, knowing that you simply have to turn up and enjoy yourself once you’re onboard.
