Europe

The Baltic, Ireland, Britain & the Norwegian Fjords are all classic cruise destinations in their own right, and due to their proximity several of them can even be combined in 1 classic cruise (Scotland & Norway, Ireland and Scotland, Copenhagen to Reyjavik via Norway & Scotland). 

• Cruising the Norwegian Fjords - Probably Europe's most famous and dramatic cruise. Sognefjord is the world's longest ice-free Fjord, and is a Mecca for cruise ships. Dramatic cliffs plunging into fjords, remote fishing villages, waterfalls and vast swathes of forest fill the viewfinder thoughout your journey.
Cruising around Britain & Ireland provide rugged coastlines teeming with seabirds, ancient stone circles and burial grounds, glorious sea lochs protected by immoveable castles, all interspersed with some hard working fishing villages and a few distilleries too.
Cruising in the Baltic has a different profile - More about some of Northern Europe's great cities - St Petersburg, Riga, Tallinn, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki and more.

This title is a little confusing, as cruises to Greece, Italy, Croatia and the South of France are all listed under 'Mediterranean cruises'. And Iceland and Spitsbergen appear in the Arctic cruises section. The rest of Europe provides a myriad of different small ship cruising experiences, from the gorgeous Greek Islands, dotted with white-washed villages, to the wild and cold northern reaches where Polar bears roam the icescapes of Spitsbergen.
