The Doring Kindersley Eyewitness Travel Cruise Guide to Europe & the Mediterranean.

There is a certain appeal, convenience and a feeling of security that comes with cruising. But on the other hand there is also a certain predictability, a certain limited quality imposed on the cruise-ship traveller's by virtue of never being able to venture far inland. As a result, cross out Munich, Moscow, Vienna, and all of Switzerland and Austria from your agenda.
That having been said --- there's still a lot to be left to see: all of the British Isles, for example; all the Mediterranean isles; arguably the most beautiful parts of Norway; and, in a stretch, even Berlin.
Because you'll rarely be spending more than a day in a port (what a pity --- and even that is usually an abbreviated one) you won't be able to see all of, let's say, Rome, anyway. So the Guide will take you to the most famous, obvious or important places on your excursion asore. It doesn't tell you about the into races of navigating Rome's public transportation system: it assumes you're getting about by taxi or tour coach.
It's strength: wonderful colored illustrations; wonderful diagrammatic representations of the places you're most likely to visit: St. Peter's Bassilica in Rome, the Vatican Museums.
As with most guides of this sort, the tilt is towards the predictable: art galleries, museums, churches, castles and shopping. But what els is there to see? Stone Age structures north of Dublin, the Leper colony off the shore of eastern Crete or the world's largest model railway layout in Hamburg.
So as you see, while these books are good, they don't capture it all.
But nonetheless, they are a good place to start and, depending on where you're going, well worth taking with you. After all, you're cruising, aren't you.
