The beauty of European cruises has been so inviting for thousands of tourists every year, promising an unforgettable experience of traveling around the continent, which is so diverse and breathtaking.

So, is it worth it to go on a cruise ship journey?

Absolutely! Traveling by boat around the continent offers some of the most scenic itineraries and often allows travelers to visit several destinations without having to change their accommodations or even transport. Visiting popular destinations becomes more convenient and so much more enjoyable. Some of the most common places to visit while traveling on a cruise can be iconic rivers in Europe such as the Rhine, Seine, and the Danube, in addition to coastal routes that offer views of charming towns, breathtaking landscapes, and historic cities.

Speaking of the conveniences, it goes without saying that onboard amenities for passengers are one of the best parts of cruising. Gourmet dining, spas, fitness centers, entertainment, as well as theatres, and many other leisure activities, are at guests’ disposal at all times.

However, each traveler’s experience, time constraints as well as budget dictate one’s worthiness of a European cruise.

A Reddit user advises those that are planning to go on a trip to not just go for a cruise and try out other alternatives before deciding on their traveling plans.

“First I would fully say do NOT just go for the cruise. If you plan on doing this, fly into Ireland a few days early, take the cruise, and go somewhere else for a few days afterward. Make the most of that flight cost,” the user says.

Another one highlights that a budget for food is necessary as people can grow tired of alternatives offered on the cruise and this enables them to have a better experience.
