Decide whether youre most interested in the time spent at the destination or in how you want to spend the time on the ship itself. All but the smallest cruise ships generally offer such amenities as spas gyms shows or entertainment and a variety of dining options. Travelers that are more interested in the destination itself will find that Carnival is known for offering some of the best shore excursions although lines featuring smaller cruise ships can often visit exotic smaller ports that are inaccessible to the large ships On the other hand if youre more interested in your time on the ship perhaps you should consider Norwegian which features cruise ships known for their suites as well as their entertainment.
In addition to Blue Man Group the NCL Epic showcased \"Legends In Concert\" which featured impersonated performances by Elvis Madonna Tina Turner Michael Jackson and other \"super-stars\". If you like this sort of thing you will probably enjoy it very much. Otherwise you may find it to be \"OK\" as I did. Another Epic \"first\" is Cirque Dreams and Dinner which is performed by an exceptionally talented group of acrobats in a special theater-in-the-round called the Spiegel Tent. Several of our staff members saw this show and said that it was very good but perhaps a bit too long. My wife and I saw a very different show in the Spiegel Tent. Our 3-year-old granddaughter who we were able to bring with us is a big fan of \"Dora the Explorer\" and \"Diego\" and she just loved the Nickelodeon character breakfast which in addition to Dora and Diego also featured \"Sponge Bob Square Pants\" \"Jimmy Neutron\" and others. In an exclusive deal with NCL the Nickelodeon characters are presently appearing on the Epic and the NCL Jewel (which now sails year-round out of New York City) and will eventually appear on several other NCL ships.
A typical day aboard a cruise ship in Europe starts with breakfast being delivered to your room and placed on your balcony so you can watch as you gently glide into port. If you dont have anything planned for that day go the restaurant deck and enjoy a hearty meal. If you have a tour booked head for the meeting area that has been designated by the cruise line. In most cases the tours are four to five hours long giving you the rest of the day to explore more fully. If you have planned it right you can do your tour then return to the ship for lunch then go out in the afternoon to hit the spots you have chosen to see. Most cruise lines set sail for the next port in the early evening around 5 or 6 oclock. After you have watched the sail away you have time to get cleaned up have a drink and then have a leisurely dinner. There is always entertainment after dinner to enjoy. The casino and the bars will be opened to the late hours but remember you have an early start the next day.
Another choice would be a barge cruise. Many small barges have been converted to luxury cruise ships. These ships can maneuver in the smaller rivers and canals. Since they carry very few passengers (6-12) they are a more intimate experience. You will need time for cruises such as these. They travel slowly and make overnight stops in small villages. Then there is a Yacht cruise which appeals to the heart of all want to be yachtsmen. These too are much smaller and you will experience amore intimate cruise. But lets go with the traditional cruise that visits lots of ports during the cruise. Since you have invested a lot of time and money to get to Europe you will want to choose a cruise that visits lots of ports in many countries. Go for a 12 to 14 day itinerary visiting countries that interest you. Review the tours offered before you leave so you know which ones you want to book when you arrive at your cruise ship. Usually the cruise ship will stop in a port during the day traveling to the next port during the night. Occasionally a ship will overnight in a port giving you more time to tour.
