European Jewels Cruise Review

“Me and my wife have never been cruising before, but we decided to treat ourselves with this European Jewels cruise and we are absolutely delighted. The cabin was superb as were the amenities onboard. Me and my wife loved the spa but I must admit we spent most of our time in the different eating areas. We even took part in a cooking class! The excursions were also very fun and I would recommend them to anyone looking to get to know Europe a bit more especially if you like architecture or history.”
