It is not possible to fairly compare a European river cruise with a European land tour. The two offer totally different travel experiences and as a friend says, it is like comparing apples and oranges... you can’t! There are positive elements to both experiences, so in wrapping up my cruise experience, I’ll try to comment on the unique elements of each and offer some comparisons.

There are many benefits associated with this Viking River cruise, but perhaps the best is the opportunity to unpack once for a seven-day tour.

The incomparable Mont St. Michel rises out of the bay, adorned with its medieval abbey. It’s a well-known tourist destination and it can get pretty crowded during the day, but it takes on a whole new atmosphere at night. Here, I share the story of one of my visits to Mont St. Michel.

When traveling in Europe tipping is not near as common as you might think and it certainly is not as lavish. While nothing about tipping is concrete, I hope these guidelines will relieve some stress and help you fit in like a local when traveling through Europe.

Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) is a service offered to credit cardholders that offers to convert a foreign transaction at the point of sale into the home currency of the cardholder. This is never a good idea for the consumer because it comes with inflated exchange rates that benefit the merchant. An unsuspecting cardholder can lose up to 7% by opting in to this feature. Since DCC works against the purchaser, never say you would like your purchases to be converted to dollars.

The USA has been resistant to Chip and Pin technologies, which sometimes causes traditional magnetic strip credit cards to be declined. The new American credit cards with an imbedded chip are accepted in nearly all locations, but may still require a signature. Depending on your card provider, you may be able to request a pin for your chip-imbedded card. Before traveling see if your bank or credit card company will issue a new chip-enabled card.
