Default European Cruise Port Guide
Mediterranean Cruise Port Guide

Mediterranean cruises are on sale in 2012: A synopsis of the most common ports of call.


This is a great year to go to Europe - prices are unbelievably low

The Mediterranean Sea has two traditional cruising regions: the Eastern and Western Mediterranean. The third region is the Baltic Sea, located between Germany/Poland to the south and Scandinavia to the north. The fourth is the Atlantic Ocean, including the British Isles and Ireland, and the west coasts of Portugal, Spain, France, Holland and the Benelux countries facing the North Sea. In the Atlantic going south, you find Madeira and the Canary Islands off the coast of Morocco.

This article discusses the Mediterranean. Northern and Atlantic Europe, and river cruises will be discussed in Part Two.

Default Europe's Atlantic, Baltic and River Cruises
Europe's Atlantic, Baltic and River Cruises

by Paul Motter, CruiseMates Editor

A guide for people considering a European cruise: The Baltic and Atlantic cruise ports and river cruises.

In part one, we focused on Mediterranean options for first-time Europe cruisers. Click here to read part 1. In this article, we will discuss the Baltic Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and river cruising.

Highlights of the Baltic Sea
The Baltic Sea connects to the North Sea and the Atlantic through the Danish Straits, with Denmark and Germany to the south and Norway in the north. Inside the Baltic Sea to the south are Poland; the "Baltic States" of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia; and Russia. To the north are Sweden and Finland. The typical Baltic cruise usually ends or begins in Copenhagen, Denmark or Stockholm, Sweden. The highlight of a Baltic cruise for most people is St. Petersburg, Russia, once known as Leningrad, the "Jewel of the Soviet Union."
