Plan your cruise in Europe:

arrow Cruise Article and Reviews

Read our in-depth reports on ocean and river cruises. Also see Tour Europe by Ship, which discusses "port-intensive" cruising as an alternative to cars, trains,  and coaches.

arrow European Barge and Canal Cruises

Explore Europe's inland waterways on a hotel barge or narrowboat. The pace is slow, the atmosphere is cozy and informal, and you'll avoid crowds even during high season. Also see our article on Coastal, Canal, and River Cruises in Britain.

arrow Venice for Cruisers

If your cruise begins or ends in Venice, Italy, read our Venice for Visitors port information. Also see "Roundtrip Cruises from Venice," our 35 pages about Rome's cruise port of Civitavecchia, and our guide to Paris River Cruise Ports.
