  • British Isles & Western Europe
  • Photo & Video
The majority of European cruises are between 10-14 days in length. The Mediterranean sailings are generally offered between April and October with Northern Europe offered in the summer months only. The embarkation points differ among cruise lines, depending on the itinerary. European cruises offer a combination of beauty and history. A cruise of Ireland and the British Isles offers the ultimate "sampling" opportunity for any traveler looking to explore the U.K.

From the winding regions of the Mosel, Rhine and Danube, our increasingly popular European River Cruises explore the fascinating history, arts, and world famous wine growing regions of Europe.

Explore terraced hillsides dotted with medieval castles, vineyards, and religious sites along the way, a gentle ride down these tributaries unlocks the treasures of these towns, ancient hubs of merchant trade routes, and strategic fortresses which created boundaries of modern European cultures. Several of these villages and large commercial centers are well preserved and offer an exciting portal to discover quaint cities, local craftsmanship, artistic treasures and gourmet adventures.
