In 2016, we embarked on our first-ever Discoveries of Coastal Europe expedition; and it was a hit! From the variety of choices guests had each day to our stellar expedition staff, we received rave reviews; so much so, we’re repeating this itinerary in April 2018. But, don’t take it from us; read a round-up of what our guests had to say:
Interested in the variety of options available on our Western Europe cruise?
So many options for daily activity; I wanted to do them all! ~ Carol G.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience; the activities offered were so diverse, everyone could find one of interest! The choice of cities and notable sites were wonderful, and I didn’t come home feeling like I had missed seeing anything. ~ Fran M.
It was hard having to make a choice between each day’s options, as all were excellent! ~ Mary P.
Want to know more about the expedition staff on our Western Europe cruise?
Mike Messick was excellent, possibly the best expedition leader I’ve ever encountered! ~ Andrea M.
It has to be said—Cruise Director Kelsey Simmons is awesome. What a wonderful personality! And historian T.H. Baughman was a marvelous surprise, I loved his presentations. ~ Marion W.
All of the speakers gave interesting lectures, but if you have ever studied and/or appreciated history, T.H. Baughman’s presentations were truly exceptional! ~ Gary & Darlene F.
What about the day-to-day activities in various Western European ports?
The early arrivals in Santiago de Compostela and Mont Saint-Michel were very nice; touring Ghent was a nice surprise; and the crepes in Brest, as well as the various port, wine, and cognac tastings were all delicious! ~ Jennifer B.
We especially appreciated Jim Wilson’s birding excursions, the trips to the Channel Islands, and the visits to the World War II sites in Normandy. ~ Sue & Tom M.
The birding was excellent; I’m not really a birder but I love the photo opportunities of birds and scenery. Jim was especially great, looking after everyone and calling out bird species as soon as he saw them, to be sure everyone got a chance. ~ Marc W.
