Other Popular Cruise Destinations in Europe
The Mediterranean is the absolute winner when it comes to the most popular cruise destinations not only in Europe but the entire world. The region is home to some of the most famous historical attractions, breathtaking scenery, fantastic beaches, … A heaven for travellers of all ages and interests.
The second most popular destination in Europe after the Mediterranean is Denmark and Scandinavia which are followed by:
British Isles. A growing number of British families decide to explore the hidden beauty of the British Isles aboard a cruise ship. Spectacular castles, medieval towns and cities, charming coast villages, dramatic landscape, the ability to observe some of the most fascinating marine species make a cruise to the many British Isles an unforgettable experience. Families interested in a cruise to the British Isles can choose between a number of both large and small ships and a wide range of routes and itineraries.
The Baltic region. Cruises to the Baltic region, in the first place the countries of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia aren’t as sought after as cruises to the neighbouring Denmark and Scandinavia. But since they became the members of the EU in 2004, the three Baltic states are getting increasingly attractive to European travellers. While it is possible to find cruises to the Baltic states exclusively, shore excursions to the coastal towns of Estonia, Lithuania or/and Latvia are usually a part of Northern Europe cruises.
Iceland. The most remote country in Europe is famous for its spectacular landscape dominated by majestic glaciers, active volcanoes, lava fields and geysers, high mountain peaks, spectacular lakes and rivers, … which, however, is subject to a continuous change as the country is one of the most geologically active places in the world. Due to its remoteness, cruises to Iceland usually don’t include shore excursions to other countries of Northern Europe with the exception of longer cruises to the Arctic.
Russia. Just like the three Baltic states, Russia is usually only a part of Northern Europe cruises, with St. Petersburg as the prime destination. If you would like to visit the magnificent city that is also referred to as the Venice of the North, you are advised to look for cruises to Scandinavia and Russia.
