Summer cruise travel

If you’re planning a summer cruise through Europe, be prepared for some great cruise excursions, and even greater crowds!

From Donna:

Can you believe that 2016 has already passed the halfway mark? Alan and I like to stop mid-year to assess where we’ve been and where we’re going. Literally. We sit down with a glass of wine to review our 2016 travel to-do list. Which trips have we taken so far? Which ones had to be postponed for another year? Which trip is a must-do before the end of the year? If your travel plans have slipped away, this is a fun exercise in getting back on track. Give it a try, then share your travel plans with us at the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook.

From Nicole:

This month, we’re talking cruise travel. There are seemingly thousands of cruises and destinations to choose from, but summer cruises through the Mediterranean are quite popular, but it does come at a cost. Europe offers all kinds of fabulous destinations, all most likely packed to the gills with tourists. If you’re thinking about cruising around the Med this summer, use Donna’s cruise tips to make the most out of your visit.

However, if you’re looking for some really unique luxury cruise travel ideas, we’ve got you covered as well. Check out a few of Donna’s favorite cruises from around the world:
