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.
