Cruising Europe is an experience you will remember for a lifetime. With careful planning and preparation, you will experience the cruising adventure of your dreams. Cruise planning begins with your imagination. When you daydream about your European cruise, what do you see yourself doing? Are there any ports of call that would be a “must see” for you? Would you prefer a casual cruise experience, or are formal cruise traditions more to your liking? Do you plan to travel with your family, or is this cruise a second honeymoon for you and your spouse?

When you take a cruise, you are signing up for a certain type of travel experience. You want to be catered to, you want all of your amenities in one place, and you want to see the world without unpacking your bags. Getting the most out of your cruise experience begins with careful cruise planning. Whatever your dream looks like, it is important to create a vision for your cruise before you begin your research. The more you know about what you want from your cruise experience, the better equipped you are to decide which European cruise is best for you.

With dozens of cruise companies operating in Europe – at least 50 in the Mediterranean alone – you are sure to find the European cruise of your dreams. Cruise planning is simplified by keeping a checklist of your “must haves” and “wishes” close at hand. As you weigh your options, your checklist can help you easily identify the cruise that would work best for you and your traveling companions.
