Cruising Europe: Western European Ports of Call

Highlights of the Western European ports of call on the Crystal Serenity

A cruise is a wonderful thing: it allows you to unpack once, yet visit much more than just one place. Itineraries vary, but Crystal Cruises opts for some very interesting ports of call, including a Dover, England to Barcelona, Spain trip. I’ve compiled some snapshot highlights, to wet your wanderlust whistle.

In the coming weeks, look for more from Crystal’s Western Europe. Next week, travel with us on AmaWaterways’ AmaCerto along the Danube. So pack your bag – you’ll only have to unpack it once.
