the European cruise routes
unforgettable European cruise experiences
The two European cruise routes, between Denmark and Norway and Holland and the UK, are great ways to discover Europe and Scandinavia, and a cruise is also an exciting and cost effective alternative to a flight and expensive hotel nights.
The two cruise routes cover three of Europe's main capitals - Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Oslo, as well as the exciting and dynamic city of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Choose the length of your stay
It is your choice - take the cruise as a one way trip, as a round trip cruise (with five to seven hours to spend at the destinations before the return trip), or choose another of length of time to stay between two trips.
With daily departures to and from all four European destinations, it is easy to plan both your European cruise, and your stay in each of the European countries.
