While you may be tempted to keep this book intact as a souvenir of your travels, you’ll appreciate even more the footloose freedom of traveling light while you’re in port. I haven’t skimped on my coverage of the sights in this book—which is why it’s a bricklike tome. To get the most out of the book, please don’t hesitate to tear out just the pages that you need for each day in port (see sidebar). Is a European Cruise Right for You?

When evaluating prices and making a budget, remember to take into account all of the “extras” you might wind up buying from the cruise line: alcoholic drinks, meals at specialty restaurants, the semi-mandatory “auto-tip” (about $10-12 per day per person), shore excursions, and your gambling tab from the casino, just to name a few.
