Spain, France and Italy Cruise, Oh My!
There is something about Europe that just feels different. The minute you step off a cross-Atlantic air trip and step foot on the continent you feel like you are in another part of the world. At the same time, Europe is also familiar. It has its lovely towns, bustling cities and historic cultures, but none of this leaves you feel like you are visiting Mars. Europe is both different and familiar.
Europe is also wonderful, especially if you can take the time to explore some of its southern areas. Celebrity Cruises has an excellent cruise of the Balearic Islands. Don’t worry, I didn’t know what this was either until I saw the itinerary. The 10-night cruise starts and ends in Spain’s marvelous city of Barcelona. From there it is off to Provence and Nice, France, two lovely seaside cities that are dripping with culture. The culture heats up with a visit to Florence and the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Wouldn’t it be something if you were there when it falls down? Don’t worry, that probably isn’t going to happen unless you accidentally bump into it. Try not to be a klutz.
The rest of the journey sees you spending time in Rome, Italy, Corsica, Valencia, Spain and Gibraltar before returning to Barcelona. This is a cruise that covers a lot of territory in a hurry and it is an excellent way to discover just how unique and how similar Europe can be.
