Our cruises in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe provide a terrific way to explore the continent's many cultures and historic landmarks. Each day of your voyage brings new sights, like magnificent Gothic cathedrals, fabled palaces, Old World cities and picturesque harbor towns laced with cobblestone lanes.

We've secured the deepest discounts available for European cruises -- you can save up to 84% on Mediterranean departures in 2018, for example.

Today I'll provide some tips to help anyone heading in that direction find a great cruise at a great price. Click any link below for a complete list of options.

Mediterranean cruise itineraries typically range from seven to 14 days and are most numerous from late April through October, although several lines place ships in the region year-round. Many sailings visit Spain, France, Italy and Greece.

Below, I've organized our Mediterranean cruises by the most popular departure ports:

Monte Carlo

Due to the cool climate, the most popular time for cruising in Northern Europe is from May through August, but you'll still find departures at other times of the year. Itineraries generally range from seven to 14 days, and most sail in the Baltic Sea to legendary port cities like St. Petersburg, Stockholm and Copenhagen. There also are cruises that concentrate on the British Isles or the Norwegian Fjords.

Here are the most common departure ports for Baltic cruises:


And below is a list of common departure ports for cruises of the British Isles:
