Looking for a fantastic cruise? I recommend to almost everyone cruising the beautiful country of Norway. This is simply one of the greatest cruises I have sailed. I was fortunate to sail on the six-star Regent Cruise Line. We departed from Copenhagen, sailing all the way up the west coast of Norway to the most northern part of Europe which is North Cape. In my opinion, cruising Norway outshines even an Alaskan Cruise.
While staying in a Best Western in Stockholm, Sweden, I pondered the difference from our culture to theirs. Wonderful examples of the differences were in my room. Missing were the common themed prints from American hotels and in their place was a fancy painting with a wild light wrapped around it. Additionally I found a mini-library, stocked with over thirty books. Can you image waking up and have thirty library books in your very room? Not lacking modern comforts, the room also had a DVD player and television. Visit Stockholm and the Best Western. I highly recommend it!
Norwegian Cruise Lines are 4.5 star rated which places them nicely between Carnival Cruise Line (4 star) and a number of five star lines. Cruisers enjoy dining whenever they want on Norwegian at the abundant dining facilities all over the ship! For a little bit more money you can dine in their specialty restaurant, which other cruisers report is fantastic. This line is also known to be great for kids and adults, with cruises that go to Hawaii and all around the world!
When cruising to Rome, Italy, I recommend my clients stay at least one day in this wonderful city. Sights including the Catacombs, Coliseum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps are known worldwide and are just a few of the magnificent sites in Rome. Another great city to visit is Civitavecchia, located two hours north of Rome. Here’s my best tip when planning a cruise that includes Rome: Schedule your Rome sightseeing before or after the cruise. This way you don’t have to rush to visit all of the amazing parts of this fabulous city. This is truly one not to be missed!
