Then throughout the day you will dissect the azure waters of the Adriatic, and the next morning you will find yourself at the pier of Venice.

Cruise in Spain (Puerto del Rosario — Las Palmas route)

The Canary Islands are so beautiful that tourists just don't want to leave them. It is enough to visit them only once to revive the memory of local beauties all year after year. For completeness, we recommend that travelers explore the rest of the archipelago. As part of the cruise, you can proceed to Gran Canaria, stay on the water for about 7 hours and explore the coastal areas of the island in detail. An alternative solution is to choose a short cruise from Tenerife to La Gomera and then to the small but very beautiful island of El Hierro.


Norway Cruise (Aalesund — Geiranger Fjord route)

The most picturesque places in Norway can be observed by buying tickets for a cruise from Aalesund to the small settlement of Geirager. By the way, the fjord of the same name is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List due to the amazing natural beauties untouched by man. On the territory of the fjord there are many high waterfalls, crystal clear and transparent bays. To spend time meaningfully, you should stay in the town of Aalesund. Here you will definitely take a lot of memorable photos and enjoy the local nature.

Norwegian Sognefjord Cruise

The fjords of Norway are famous for their incredible beauty, but the Flom – Gundwagen route along the Sognefjord Bay stands out against the general background. This bay is the European record holder not only in length, but also in depth. That is why the locals nicknamed it the "royal fjord". During the cruise, passengers will be able to observe amazing views of the bay and coastal areas.

Sea travel in this archipelago is rich, but at the same time does not cause fatigue among tourists. As part of the cruise, passengers are offered a rich entertainment program, as well as magnificent views of the beauties of the Turku archipelago and the Aland Islands.

Sweden Ferry cruise to Ystad and Visby

Ystad and Visby are two fabulously beautiful cities in Sweden, as if descended from the pages of children's books with stories. These cities are famous for their unique half-timbered houses, as well as luxurious mansions of smugglers. Visby is known for its rich Hanseatic history, fortress vaults, beautiful flowers and a warm welcome from the locals. Both cities have long beaches, and therefore it is better to visit them in the summer season.

Fans of memorable photos will certainly appreciate the authenticity of the city of Ystad. Its main advantage is the preservation of canonical half–timbered architecture and old quarters. In fact, this city has remained unchanged since the Middle Ages.

Visby is ideal for a family cruise and walks with children. Interesting places for photos are here on almost every corner. Especially this town will be loved by fans of fresh flowers: the houses and restaurants of Visby are literally drowning in luxurious and fragrant roses.

We recommend taking the time to walk around the surroundings of Torshavn. Here you can take a lot of beautiful photos of grazing sheep and green meadows,
