Cruise remote Icelandic coastlines, sun-soaked Greek islands and all the waters of Europe in between.

The only trouble with cruising Europe is deciding just where to go. If you’re looking for clear skies and a warm breeze, set out from Athens to explore the Aegean Sea. If it’s a touch of the Old World and historical intrigue that drives you, then raise the sail in Split or Dubrovnik and embrace the Adriatic. The Mediterranean coasts of Spain and Portugal boast stunning beaches and ancient Islamic architecture, while the receding glaciers of Iceland are home to looming cliff sides and Viking legends. Whatever your tastes, the vast breadth of European coast offers a multitude of unique experiences for any and all seafaring adventurers.

Highlights of European Adventure Cruising

Beautiful Blue and white combination in Santorini island, Greece

Sail the seas of the Cyclades

This collection of Greek islands is famous for the classical blue and white domed architecture that rings each coastline. The narrow lanes of Mykonos and Santorini are the region’s biggest drawcards, but between the beaches of Poliegos, the villages of Paros, and the ancient sites of Delos, the smaller and less crowded islands more than hold their own.

Westjords  Mountains and landcape

Venture to the far-flung Westfjords

Some of the most dramatic landscapes in the world are found in Iceland’s far north-western corner. The Westfjords comprise a broad, unspoiled peninsula where towering cliffs and mountains meet icy North Atlantic waters. Millions of seabirds find shelter in the heights, with puffins and northern gannets nesting in the Latrabjarg Cliffs – a sheer wall of volcanic rock 450 m (1500 ft) high.

Kornati national park and some Croatian islands

Discover the beauty in Kornati National Park

When playwright George Bernard Shaw first saw the islands off the Croatian coast, he wrote that God must have made them ‘out of tears, stars and breath.’ Sail, swim and kayak from one pristine bay to another to witness the vast wealth of marine wildlife and natural beauty throughout the 89 islands of the Kornati Archipelago.

Alhambra Palace and the pond area of Granada in Spain

Behold the grandeur of Granada

Set at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Spain, Granada lies at a crossroads of geography and culture, with influences from North Africa to Western Europe, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. But seven centuries of Arabic rule have left the deepest mark, with Alhambra Palace standing testament to the beauty and depth of Moorish architecture.

Cruise the Algarve's blue waters.

Cruise the Algarve coast

The Mediterranean coast of Portugal is well known for its golden stretches of sand, but the region has far more to offer than just beautiful beaches. Ria Formosa Natural Park is one of the most important areas for aquatic birds in the country, while the medieval city of Silves is home to Islamic castles and Christian cathedrals.

Swimming off the boat in Croatia.

Live it up on the Dalmatian Coast

The scenery across Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast is wide and varied, from Roman ruins and Venetian villages to pristine riverbanks and stunning shorelines. Dive into the waters of the Adriatic Sea, sail along the Neretva River, feast inside Diocletian’s Palace in Split, and swim beneath the waterfalls in Krka National Park.
