There is a wide range of cruise itineraries to look forward to in 2016 that can take you to various regions of Europe. In the run up to Christmas and the New Year, we take a closer look at a few of the best to look out for.
Spanish Isles – Seven Nights – 6th August 2016
Perhaps one of the most obvious places to start with regards to 2016 cruises is the Mediterranean, and the fantastic Spanish Isles itinerary will take you to many fantastic destinations along the Iberian coast. Departing from Marseille, France, this seven-night cruise will take you to a range of renowned sun-kissed island destinations including Ibiza, Majorca and Menorca. These Balearic Islands host some of the finest beaches in the world, each of which is made up of golden sands and tranquil turquoise waters.
Baltic Capitals Cruise – Seven Nights - 2nd July 2016
An alternative option to the Mediterranean would be to sail northwards, into the Baltic Sea. Pullmantur’s Baltic season commences in July 2016 with the seven-night Baltic Capitals Cruise, which will take you to an array of stunning European destinations.
Sailing out of Malmo, Sweden, you will visit Warnemunde (for access to Berlin); Nynashamn, Sweden (for access to Stockholm); Helsinki Finland; and Tallinn, Estonia. The highlight of this itinerary, however, is undoubtedly the city of St Petersburg in Russia. Known as the empress of the Baltic, this city is steeped in history and is filled with huge squares and colourful spires.
Midnight Sun Cruise – Seven Nights – 21st May 2016
For those who would rather not fly, the Eurostar is a great way of being able to travel into Europe from the UK. Pullmantur’s Midnight Sun Cruise departs just 20 miles off the coast of Dover in Calais, France. As the name suggests, this itinerary will take you deep into the Norwegian fjords, where you may be able to witness the phenomenon that is the Midnight Sun.
This seven-night roundtrip itinerary will take you to stunning destinations within the fjords including: Stavanger, Hellesylt, Geiranger, Flaam and Bergen. Prepare to be completely mesmerised by the sheer natural beauty on display.
These are just a few examples of the cruise itineraries available in 2016 with Pullmantur Cruises. For each itinerary, you will be able to take advantage of the all-inclusive offering which covers all meals, drinks, flights, overseas transfers and gratuities. If you can’t wait until next year, however, there are a number of Caribbean and South American itineraries available over the Christmas period.
