Sample Europe Packages



When cruising to or from Italy—perhaps into Civitavecchia, Venice, Livorno and beyond—enjoy a personalized Monograms pre- or post-cruise package in Italy. Arrive in Florence and spend a day viewing the iconic sights of the city before your first-class train ride to Rome. Once in Rome, you can visit landmarks such as the Sistine Chapel, the Roman Forum, and even St. Peter's Basilica. Spend one more night in your centrally-located hotel before enjoying an included breakfast and embarking on your cruise vacation.



Departing from Southampton and worried you won't get to see Big Ben or The London Eye? Monograms pre- and post-cruise packages with The Cruise Web are the answer. Spend two days before you hit the sea exploring the wonders of London at Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and the Piccadilly Circus! Wake up and enjoy your complimentary breakfast at the hotel, and make it to the port on time with your included transfers.



Does your trip of a lifetime end in Paris? Spend some time exploring the most visited country in the world with this post-cruise package. On your first day, you get to take a walking tour with a local host who will take you to all the must-sees. From there, embark on a short river cruise of the Seine before heading to the Mediterranean in Nice. Here, you'll spend a day touring before you get a second day to yourself to relax on the iconic stone beaches or visit the historic perfume factories.



Whether it's your embarkation or disembarkation port, Barcelona is definitely a city you want to explore. Arrive and be greeted by a local host who will make sure you get settled in your hotel before a big second day exploring the capital of Catalonia. Highlights of this tour include la Sagrada Familia Basilica, Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece, and the Parc Guell, a one of a kind mosaic work of art. Now, you can cruise in peace knowing you didn't miss anything in this amazing city.



When you think of history in Europe, Rome is one of the first cities to come to mind. But did you know Lisbon is older, and the perfect place to tour before or after your cruise vacation! Monograms arranges everything for you from breakfast, to hotel reservations, and even sightseeing tours. On these tours, you'll see UNESCO World Heritage sites, a 16th century defense tower, and take in a meal while the sounds of Portuguese folk music float through the air.



Throughout history, Amsterdam has been a hotbed for artists and tourism and is now an option for you to explore, pre- or post-cruise! Here, you'll have the opportunity to tour the world famous Rijksmuseum, where the masterpieces of Dutch artists are displayed. With a Monograms package, you get VIP access to skip the line! The next day, you can explore the city on your own. A few popular destinations are the Anne Frank house and the Van Gogh Museum! After a full day, take a recommendation from your Local Host on the best spot for dinner!



Ireland is a wonderful place to visit with a pre- or post-cruise package from Monograms. Once here, you will meet up with your Local Host, who will help you get checked into your hotel and recommend a spot for dinner before you go out the next day to see the city. Eat a complimentary breakfast in your hotel before enjoying a guided sightseeing tour that includes Dublin's famous landmarks, such as St. Patrick's Cathedral, a granite statue of Oscar Wilde, and the thousand-year-old Book of Kells at Trinity College. Spend the next day enjoying some free time, which many occupy with a visit to the famous Grafton Street shopping district. The history and culture of Dublin make it a wonderful place to tour before or after your cruise.



Beer, holiday markets, pretzels, and so much more await you in your pre- or post-cruise land tour of Germany. With Monograms, you can start your German vacation in Munich, where you'll spend the first night in a hotel before a day full of exploration in the city! Your guided tour includes stops at the 1972 Olympic Park, BMW World, and the home of the world famous Oktoberfest. After another day of free time in Munich, hop on a train with your Local Host towards Berlin. In Berlin, your included, guided tour will stop at icons like the Berlin Wall, a restored Reichstag, and the Holocaust Memorial. Afterwards, enjoy another day of free time in Berlin, and then it's time to get ready for your cruise (or head home, if you choose the post-cruise option).



If you love classical music, you can't miss out on seeing Vienna, which has been dubbed "The City of Music." After arriving, you'll get settled into your hotel before waking up for a guided sightseeing tour with a Local Host. Some highlights of the tour include Schonbrunn Palace, the State Opera House, and the Strauss Monument, dedicated to composer Johann Strauss. Then enjoy a day of free time, supplemented with the suggestions of your local guide, before heading out to enjoy your cruise.



Arrive in the famous city of Budapest and embark on a pre- or post-cruise adventure like you've never experience before. Spend your first full day on a guided sightseeing tour, visiting Heroes' Square, the Castle District, and seeing the panoramic views of the city offered by Fishermen's Bastion. Your next full day will be spent on your own, but make sure you ask your Monograms Local Host for the best "hole-in-the-wall" place for traditional spicy Hungarian goulash.



After spending a day or two exploring London, you can supplement your cruise with a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland. Here, a guided sightseeing tour is included in your Monograms package, which will stop at historic sites such as the Edinburgh Castle, and the oldest set of crown jewels in the isles, first used in the coronation of Mary, Queen of Scots, in the mid-1500s. The next day begins with another, shorter guided tour to the Royal Mile, where the royalty in Scotland have resided since the 16th century. After that, enjoy some free time in the city before a complimentary breakfast sees you off onto your next travel adventure, a cruise!


Czech Republic

When you spend time in Prague before or after your cruise, you're in for a historical treat you can't find anywhere else. Whether you're on your guided tour, seeing the Astronomical Clock that was built in 1410, or spending your free day exploring the Jewish Quarter, which has monuments dating back to 1096, you will experience history in Prague. After the sightseeing, cross over the Charles Bridge, circa 1357, to enjoy a traditionally brewed Czech beer while your Local Host tells you more about the city.
