So without further ado, take a look at three things to do while cruising to Europe.

1) Norwegian fjords

A far cry from the traditional vision of Europe as cultured cities, museums, and art galleries, the Norwegian fjords are Mother Nature in all her glory, extraordinary natural wonders that really have to be seen to be believed.

Cruising up through one of the most spectacular landscapes in Europe is an exceptionally special experience and one you’ll not forget in a hurry. From ancient, vast glaciers to abundant wildlife, the Norwegian fjords are a must for any cruise to Europe. 

2) Athens

To really get to grips with European history, Athens is the place to start. The cradle of Mediterranean civilization, Ancient Greek culture was where it all started for Europe as a concept, and the ancient monuments, ruins, and sights of Athens are a wonderful way to learn more, and spectacular to visit as well! From the magic of the Parthenon to the majesty of the Acropolis, a visit to Athens will truly blow your mind.

3) London

The capital city of the UK is one of Europe’s cultural jewels, a vibrant, bustling metropolis that boasts some of the best museums, art galleries, theaters, and concert halls in Europe, and even the world! It also has a spectacular dining scene and a booming nightlife and rivals New York as a city that never sleeps.

Don’t miss the mummies at the British Museum, the Old Masters at the National Gallery, or the chance to attend the Last Night of the Proms at the Albert Hall, an iconic British tradition.
