Few visit Europe without being overwhelmed by its stunning beauty, epic history, iconic architecture, fabulous contributions to world art, cultural heritage, romantic cities and an unparalleled diversity of food and drink. [ReadMoreMob]

From the hauntingly beautiful highlands of Scotland and the astonishing Norwegian fjords to the sandy beaches of Spain, Greece and Portugal, European cruises offer a vast array of landscapes with incredible views thrown in. The list of must-see destinations and landmarks is infinite: the grand canals of Venice; the majesty of imperial palaces St Petersburg; a million flowering tulips in Amsterdam; magical Christmas markets of Hamburg; Barcelona’s Gaudi splendour; the jet-set of Monte Carlo; Monet’s Rouen and so on.[ReadMoreDesk]

Europe is a continent that loves to party. Its streets are home to a plethora of festivals, events and celebrations. From Edinburgh Military Tattoos and Monaco’s Grand Prix to the ‘craic’ in Dublin and Seville’s colourful fair, Europe is one huge playground. It is diamonds, chocolates, Bordeaux wine, canals, a history of war, a design mecca and home to a little mermaid. 

Europe has plenty for everyone, be that a cultural exploration, a short, relaxing break or an adrenaline-charged experience. A cruise to the shores of this historic land simply has no equal.
