Culture, History and Much More

What’s left to say about Europe that hasn’t already been said? But, talking about Europe is very different from experiencing Europe. If all you know of Europe is from the history books, you’ve been missing out.

Sail Away on a European Cruise

Undoubtedly, there is much history to explore. Yet, there are also widely diverse, modern cultures in dozens of sovereign nations to immerse yourself in.
Europe (specifically Athens) may be the ancient cradle of Western Civilization. Still, it’s also fashion-forward, trendy, innovative, and reinvigorated.

Moreover, Europe is not just culture, history, art, religion, politics, war, and reconciliation. Europe is also natural wonders, incredible outdoor adventures, and family memories like no other. From the Scandanavian Fjords to the Mediterranean Sea and everything in between, Europe has so much variety to offer the spirited traveler. An “extraordinary adventure” is precisely what you’ll experience on a European cruise!

With all of that to choose from, where should you begin? You should begin by calling Extraordinary Adventures! We can help you navigate the myriad options you’ll have in Europe and guide you through making the right decisions for your style of travel. We want, after all, for your adventure to be tailor-made perfectly for you.

Perhaps the best way to start is to figure out your “why” for going in the first place. For example, do you want to visit medieval churches, museums, ruins, and the like? You might consider a European river cruise. Does nature beckon to you? Then an expedition ship may be a better fit. Maybe you want to absorb the various modern-day cultures. A Mediterranean cruise can take you to several countries in just one cruise!

Speaking of countries, cruises in Europe lend themselves to different preferences and desires. For instance, if you’re excited about climbing in the Alps, that’s not going to happen in Greece, but it will in Switzerland. On the other hand, if you want to admire fine art in the Lourve, there’s only one place you can do that – France! Likewise, you’ll find English pubs in England and Biergartens in Germany. And, while you’re over there, you obviously have to get pizza in its birthplace – Naples, Italy!

After contemplating why and where you’ll be going on your European cruise, you’ll want to start piecing it all together by picking extraordinary itineraries on extraordinary ships and boats. First, take a magical Christmas Markets cruise on the Rhine River with AmaWaterways. Then, get ready to be swept away on a Viking Expedition ship as it takes you to the most northern regions of Europe – places like Scotland and Iceland, where you can witness the incomparable Northern Lights! And, of course, you won’t want to miss the breathtaking Norwegian Fjords as seen from one of Celebrity’s exceptional cruise ships.
