RICK STEVES’ EUROPE
Travel Skills: Cruising
Setting sail on the Mediterranean, we’ll explore the ins and outs and pros and cons of cruising. We’ll learn how to get the most out of a cruise and exercise our independence to make smart use of limited time on shore by planning well, avoiding lines, and eating quick-but-local meals on the go. Along with the joys and efficiencies of cruising, we’ll consider the downsides, including the inevitable congestion and commercialism that comes with mass tourism.
