Explore the Mediterranean

What we refer to as our current civilization – from science and democracy to art and culinary traditions – are commonly credited to the culture-rich shores of Southern Europe. The “Old World” is certainly a territory rich in history. It will be hard to go back home once you've lain on the beaches of Italy and Spain, experienced the historical sights of Jerusalem and Greece, and seen the amazing scenery of the Greek Islands and Santorini.

Step back in time with a visit to Rome and its ancient Pantheon and Colosseum as well as Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica, one of Christianity’s holiest places. Anyone who loves unique architectural design ought to visit Barcelona to see Antoni Gaudi’s most distinguished work. holding-hands-1149411__340.jpg Some of the world’s greatest wines can be savored in Italy’s Chianti region, France’s Provence, or the city of Port in Portugal. Anybody traveling along Croatia’s Adriatic coast will want to stop in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Dubrovnik, with its ancient walls surrounding the city still largely intact.

Is a River Cruise Very Distinct from an Ocean Cruise?

There are both similarities and differences between ocean cruises and river cruises, so it is smart to understand both prior to deciding which is better for you. The ships for ocean cruises are usually bigger than those made for river cruises, and have more comforts in the individual rooms. Thanks to their bigger size, they are also able to hold a lot more passengers.

River ships have a much more familiar feeling due to the more modest size, and passengers commonly find themselves making lots of new friends. A second differing feature is that on a river cruise passengers are almost never cruising for a full day at a time, where ocean cruises are in many cases on the open sea for a few days in a row.

Travelers normally get to see a new destination every day. Since the scenery outside the ship is continuously changing, the feeling of exploration becomes part of the discovery.

First-time guests might want to start with a river cruise for several reasons including the fact that land is always in sight, the water is shallower, and the sailing is smoother, so there is virtually no risk of getting seasick. That said, ocean cruises typically have more extensive features including places to work out, more of a selection for dining, and great live shows. But cruising on a river is attractive since the inclusive pricing packages mean you will get free Wi-Fi, all the water and other refreshments you want (even alcohol), and fantastic activities off-ship at specific destinations.
