Europe - Western Travel Guide

Europe - Western Cruises Highlights

  • Barcelona, Spain: First up is the vibrant Barcelona, where your ship will dock at one of Europe's largest ports. Just a short ride from the port, you'll find yourself amidst the buzz of city life, architectural marvels, and sprawling beaches. Don't miss Gaudi's surreal Sagrada Familia and the bustling La Rambla, the city's famous promenade!
  • Lisbon, Portugal: As your cruise ship approaches the scenic Lisbon port, you're greeted with a view of the imposing São Jorge Castle. The city's highlights, including the historic Belém Tower and the colorful neighborhood of Alfama, are accessible for a day's exploration. Indulge in Lisbon's rich maritime history and vibrant street life.
  • Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy: Civitavecchia serves as your gateway to the eternal city of Rome. A bustling port with top-notch facilities, it's your starting point for an unforgettable trip into the heart of the Roman Empire. Explore ancient wonders like the Colosseum, the Pantheon, or toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain for good luck!
  • Southampton, United Kingdom: Southampton, known as the cruise capital of the UK, welcomes you with its modern port facilities. It's more than a jumping-off point for London; the city's maritime museums are a treat, and the nearby New Forest is perfect for a serene retreat. Plus, it's a stone's throw from the mystic wonders of Stonehenge.
  • Eiffel Tower, Paris, France: No symbol is more iconic of Paris than the awe-inspiring Eiffel Tower. Standing tall over the cityscape, it offers a panoramic view of the City of Lights. Constructed in 1889, it's not just a marvel of engineering but also a testament to human ingenuity and aesthetics.
  • The Colosseum, Rome, Italy: Step into the world of gladiators, epic battles, and ancient history at the Colosseum. This grand amphitheater, once capable of seating 50,000 spectators, is a monumental relic of the Roman Empire and offers an unparalleled glimpse into its rich cultural past.
  • La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain: Marvel at Antoni Gaudí's architectural masterpiece, a church that's been under construction since 1882! Its unique style combines Gothic and Art Nouveau forms, and the detailed craftsmanship of every nook and cranny is nothing short of divine.
  • Anne Frank House, Amsterdam, Netherlands: Beyond a museum, this is a touching homage to the wartime diarist Anne Frank. Preserving the secret annex where she and her family hid during World War II, it's a profound reflection of courage and tragedy intertwined.
  • Acropolis, Athens, Greece: Perched high above the city of Athens, the Acropolis is a citadel of ancient history and home to several architectural masterpieces like the Parthenon. Its significance in shaping Western civilization is beyond measure, offering insight into the origins of democracy, philosophy, and theater.
  • Buckingham Palace, London, UK: Experience the pomp and circumstance of the British Monarchy at Buckingham Palace. The Changing of the Guard is a must-see, a colorful ceremony of music and precision marching. It's British culture on full display.

Europe - Western Cruises Travel Tips

  • You'll be walking quite a bit during your time in Europe, much of which will be spent traveling over cobblestone streets. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.
  • Many destinations and natives will speak English, but it's always nice to learn some key phrases in the native language. It leaves a good impression on the locals when you give it an effort!
  • Currency matters. The Euro is your best friend in most of Western Europe, but remember, places like the UK have their own currency (British Pound). It's wise to have a mix of cash and cards.
  • Don't be afraid to discover the local cuisine! There's a little something different to explore in every country, and the local delicacies are often reasonably priced. 
  • You simply won't be able to experience everything on a short cruise, so choose the top one or two sites you want to get to in each port city, or ask your cruise line for recommendations.
  •  In Western Europe, greeting people with a polite smile and a 'hello' goes a long way. Brush up on simple local phrases; "merci" (thank you in French), "por favor" (please in Spanish), or "scusi" (excuse me in Italian) shows respect and appreciation for the cultures you're visiting.
  • Versatile clothing that you can layer is key due to varying climates. A lightweight waterproof jacket, comfortable walking shoes, and sunscreen are essentials. If you plan on dining at a fancy restaurant or attending the opera, bring smart attire, as many upscale venues have a dress code.

Europe - Western Cruises Things To Do

  • Belem Tower
    Belem Tower

    Belem Tower in Lisbon, Portugal, was originally constructed as a 16th century fortification. It's officially known as the Tower of Saint Vincent and is considered the ceremonial gateway to Lisbon. There are five floors with the Governor's Hall, the Chapel, the Audience Hall, the Kings' Hall, and the Roof Terrace.  

    Best Time To Visit

    Belem Tower is open all year long, but the summer is considered the best time of the year since the weather is more preferable. If you can, head here first thing in the morning to beat the crowds.   

     

    You Should Know

    The tower was constructed from 1514 to 1520 and was deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. To reach the upper floors, you'll have to use a small, narrow spiral staircase. If you don't like heights or tight spaces, there's still plenty to see on the ground. The tower is open from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. from October through April, and it stays open an extra hour from May through September.
  • Anne Frank House
    Anne Frank House

    You simply can't be in Amsterdam without paying a visit to the Anne Frank House. This incredible museum contains sobering exhibits about World War II and the hardships that the Frank family endured. It opened in 1960 and is a nonprofit organization.  

    Best Time To Visit

    The Anne Frank House is open all year, though operating hours are typically shorter in the winter months. Admission costs €12.50 for adults, €6.50 for children 10-17, and €1 for children 0-9.   

     

    You Should Know

    Throughout the museum, you'll see original pages from Anne's diary, pictures of her family and friends, and the hinged bookcase leading to the secret annex. Photography is not allowed to preserve the integrity of the museum's original items. The House is full of steep stairs that those with difficulty walking may have a hard time traversing.
  • Castle Hill
    Castle Hill

    One of the best views in Nice, France, can be found from Castle Hill. The Castle of Nice was built as a citadel for military purposes. You'll find the ruins of the defensive walls, an elevator built right into the rock, and a beautiful artificial waterfall. This site essentially divides the city of Nice in two: the eastern port side and the western Old Town side.  

    You Should Know

    You can reach the top of Castle Hill either by elevator or by staircase. Don't miss the Bellanda Tower, home to the Maritime Museum. It's a reconstruction of a former castle bastion and was the home of composer Hector Berlioz. He wrote the famous "King Lear" overture there! Behind the public toilet, there's a small path that leads you to two fascinating historic cemeteries (one Jewish, one Catholic).  
  • La Sagrada Familia
    La Sagrada Familia

    Perhaps the most well-known attraction in Barcelona is La Sagrada Familia, which translates to "Holy Family." This incredible cathedral began construction in 1882 under Antoni Gaudi, whose influence can be seen all throughout Barcelona. The cathedral's main claim to fame is the fact that it still remains unfinished, though it is scheduled to be completed in 2026.  

    Best Time To Visit

    La Sagrada Familia is less crowded from October through March. Also, early morning is the best time to get a beautiful view of the sun coming through the stained-glass windows.   

     

    You Should Know

    Since you'll be visiting a Catholic church, dress appropriately. Clothing may not be see-through, your shoulders must be covered, and your pants or skirt must come down to at least the mid-thigh. In addition to La Sagrada Familia itself, the site also houses the Gaudi House Museum for an in-depth look at the painter's life and works. Admission costs €26 per person, and children 11 and under enter for free.
  • Van Gogh Museum
    Van Gogh Museum

    While you're in Amsterdam, take some time to experience the Van Gogh Museum. This is the largest collection of Van Gogh artwork in the world and is located right in the heart of the city. You'll find stunning famous pieces like "Sunflowers" and "Self-Portrait with Grey Felt Hat."  

    Best Time To Visit

    The Van Gogh Museum is suitable year-round since it is an indoor attraction. It's typically less crowded in the early mornings before 11 a.m. Adult admission (18+) is €19 per person. Children enter for free.  

     

    You Should Know

    In addition to the permanent exhibit, the Museum also hosts various rotating exhibits with artifacts and information about. Van Gogh's life.

In addition to the entrance fee, the Van Gogh Museum does accept and appreciate donations.
  • Warnemünde Lighthouse
    Warnemünde Lighthouse

    First constructed in 1836, the Warnemünde Lighthouse is a unique attraction for visitors to Germany. It's made of white glazed bricks and stands about 120 feet or 37 metres high. The tower provides an absolutely unmatched view of Warnemünde and the Baltic Sea. If the lighthouse looks familiar, it's likely because some believe it was used on the promotional poster for the movie Shutter Island!  

    You Should Know

    Entry to Warnemünde Lighthouse is incredibly affordable at just €2 per person. Once you're done exploring the lighthouse, you can head into town for a delicious lunch and souvenir shopping. To get to the top of the lighthouse, you'll need to climb a granite spiral staircase.
  • Belfry of Bruges
    Belfry of Bruges

    Right in the heart of Bruges, Belgium, you'll find the stunning Belfry of Bruges. This medieval bell tower is one of the city's most widely recognized symbols and has formerly housed the municipal archies and a treasury. It also served as an observation post to look out for fires and other dangers.   

    Best Time To Visit

    The Belfry is open daily from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Admission costs €12 per person with discounts available for seniors older than 65 and youth up to 25. Children up to 5 enter for free.  

     

    You Should Know

  • Rijksmuseum
    Rijksmuseum

    For a taste of Dutch art and history, visit the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. You'll find works from Rembrandt, Vermeer, and countless other famous Dutch painters. The total collection of artwork and historical pieces totals more than one million items!  

    Best Time To Visit

    The Rijksmuseum welcomes guests all year long. Admission costs €20 per adult, and children 18 and under enter for free.   

     

    You Should Know

Europe - Western Cruise Packages

Quick Facts

Western Europe isn't just a feast for the eyes; it's a playground for anyone with a thirst for adventure. Beyond the iconic landmarks, there's an array of activities that truly let you soak in the vibrant spirit and natural beauty of this diverse region. Whether you're a thrill-seeker or a culture enthusiast, there's something exhilarating waiting for you.

  • Getting There

    Setting sail to Western Europe offers a unique perspective on this diverse and historically rich region. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the vast stretches of the Mediterranean and North Seas to the south and north, this area is a jewel accessed easily by sea. Most cruise ships embark from major coastal cities such as Barcelona, Lisbon, or Southampton, offering you a smooth voyage to these shores.

    Upon reaching Western Europe, the approach by sea is nothing short of spectacular. Cruise ships navigate through strategic waterways and docking points, providing panoramic views of iconic coastal cities. Ports like those in Marseille, Antwerp, and Hamburg have been gateways for explorers and traders throughout history, and now they welcome modern travelers looking for their own European adventure. With state-of-the-art facilities, these ports are designed for seamless disembarkation, placing you right at the heart of each destination, ready to begin your exploration the moment you step ashore.

  • The Perfect Time for a Western European Cruise

    Summers in Western Europe, while beautiful with warm, bright weather, can be quite crowded, particularly in popular Mediterranean destinations. Cruising during the summer months often means navigating through bustling ports and dealing with higher temperatures. Winters, though charming and festive, especially during the holiday season, can be chilly, requiring cruisers to prepare for colder weather.  

    Spring and autumn, however, are the real sweet spots for cruising in Western Europe. These seasons allow cruisers to enjoy lush spring blooms or the rich autumnal colors that transform the landscapes, enhancing the scenic cruising experience. Whether you're exploring Renaissance art in Florence during the spring or watching an autumn sunset by the Seine in Paris, these seasons provide a serene and picturesque backdrop for your cruise.  

    For those who prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle of peak tourist times, off-season cruising also presents cost-effective options and a more authentic experience, as towns and cities revert to their natural rhythms. Ready to set sail on your Western European cruise adventure? These seasons offer the perfect opportunity to explore this diverse and culturally rich region in a comfortable and relaxed manner.

  • Why Book a Cruise to Western Europe?

    If you've ever dreamed of exploring the best of Western Europe, there's no question about it: booking a cruise is your ticket to a hassle-free adventure through this culturally rich region. Imagine unpacking just once and settling into a comfortable, floating hotel with endless amenities and entertainment options at your fingertips. Cruises offer unmatched value for your money, bundling accommodation, transportation, and mouth-watering dining into one affordable package, not to mention the array of onboard activities that cater to all ages.

    However, the benefits extend far beyond convenience and cost-effectiveness. Cruises give you unique coastal views of Europe that traditional land-based travelers miss out on. Picture gliding past the Norwegian Fjords or witnessing the stunning cliffs of the Mediterranean coast, all from the comfort of your deck chair. These are the exclusive vistas that only sea travel can provide.

    Moreover, cruises often include stops at ports that are gateways to exclusive experiences and expeditions. Perhaps it's a private tour through the vineyards of Bordeaux or a closed-group visit to lesser-known historical ruins; these carefully curated excursions are designed to immerse you in local cultures and landscapes.

    Also, there's the unparalleled ease of travel. Forget the constant packing and unpacking, the rush to catch trains or the hassle of navigating roads in a foreign land. Your ship handles the logistics, leaving you free to unwind, explore, and absorb the diverse tapestry of Western European culture. So, when it comes to discovering Western Europe, cruising is not just a choice; it's an opportunity for an adventure that's as relaxing as it is enriching.

  • Experience the Flavors of Western Europe

    One of the joys of traveling through Western Europe is the opportunity to indulge in the many different flavors, each telling a story of rich cultural heritage. Western European cuisine, with its diverse palate from hearty German stews to fresh Mediterranean produce to delicate French pastries, promises a delightful journey for your taste buds.

    Start by savoring the world-famous Spanish tapas or the classic Italian pizza and pasta, each dish oozing with centuries of perfected flavors. Don't skip on trying the quintessential fish and chips in a cozy British pub or treating yourself to Belgian chocolates and waffles that melt in your mouth. And, of course, accompany your meals with unique regional beverages, from the finest French wines and spirited Irish beers to Portugal's sweet, smooth port wine.

    For food experiences that are more than just dining, visit local markets like La Boqueria in Barcelona or Borough Market in London. They offer not only fresh, local produce but also a taste of everyday life and traditional foods. Or, for a touch of sophistication, book a seat at one of the many Michelin-starred restaurants across Western Europe for a meal that's nothing short of a culinary revelation.

  • Immerse Yourself in Western European Culture

    This region is filled with customs and festivities, all set against the backdrop of centuries-old architecture and contemporary arts. It's where tradition meets modernity, and every country has a unique story to tell.

    You'll find yourself swept up in a whirlwind of color and music if you time your visit with renowned festivals such as Spain's vivacious 'La Tomatina' or Germany's legendary 'Oktoberfest.' Over in Ireland, the streets come alive for 'St. Patrick's Day,' a festival of parades and vibrant green attire, celebrating the nation's heritage and culture.

    Culture extends beyond festivities, though. Respect for local customs is key to immersive travel. Simple gestures, like accepting an Italian's offer of a home-cooked meal or respecting the customary quiet of a Spanish siesta, pave the way for genuine cultural exchanges.

    Art enthusiasts will find their haven in cities like Paris or Amsterdam, home to galleries that host everything from the Renaissance masters to quirky contemporary works. Literature buffs, on the other hand, can tread the cobblestones of Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace.
