Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to get some opinions. I'm considering taking a european cruise aboard Royal carribean's Voyager of the Seas. I just want to know how is a european cruise and when is the best time to go?

Depends on where you are going???
Northern Europe I would go June- Sept
The Med or Greece I would go April to early June or Sept Oct Nov
I find Europe is much more historical & more on architecture in nature compared to the Caribbean which is more about sun sand & water sports.

I echo everything LHT says. My one Med cruise was on the Legend in October, we got lucky and the weather was short sleeves. Looks like Voyager is going out of Barcelona like we did, very port intensive, do your research if that is your thing, or wing it if that works for you. Not a bad stop on the Voyager itineraries I looked at. Happy Crusiing !

Thanks so much for your feedback lyn and queenofcruzin. The ship that im looking it at is actually the Voyager of the seas for next September. It will be leaving out of barcelona spain. This will be my first med cruise and im excited about it. YOu are right Lyn the carribean is moe sun and water sports and europe is more history which i love. So I'm looking forward to it, How are the seas over there that time of year???
