Anyone know about best European cruises/cruise lines?

We are planning a European cruise for spring 2016. There are 6 adults, including my Mom who will be 84. I know nothing about cruises in Europe as all my travels there have been on land with unplanned itineraries. (Love!) but this trip is really about Mom and she is not up to all the walking required. Our group has named Greece, Venice as definite ports, with others welcomed. Appreciate ANY help!

Hey Katherine,

If it's Greece and Italy you are after you might want to check out 

We just completed a mediterreanean cruise that called at Civitavecchia and Venice as well as CannesBarcelonaMajorca. All in it was under 2600 euros for the two of us, which was pretty good, me-thinks. We are not seasoned cruisers but really enjoyed it. Definitely will be going again. I think we got the bug....

We did a Holland America cruise last year that started in Venice and then hit ports in OlympiaAthensKusadasiRhodesMikonos, and Santorini before heading back to Italy for Naples and Rome. We added on from there from Rome to Barcelona, but there was apparently another option others chose that started in Rome and included other stops in the Adriatic including CorfuDubrovnik and other stops in the Adriatic before hitting Venice as the midpoint.

Definitelty be sure to look at these back-to-back options combining two 10 day itineraries into a 21 day itinerary, as that can also save you a bit of money on the booking as well as giving a number of additional ports.

Thanks for your comments! Were you pleased with Holland America?

Overall, yeah. Just be sure to look for deals when booking.
