European Ports

With hundreds of different itineraries to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to our incredible selection of European ports. Do you want to explore the palaces and cathedrals of Northern Europe? Perhaps you’d prefer the cultural shores along the Eastern Med? There are plenty of options when you book with Six Star Cruises.

Just some of the European ports available on sailings include Bergen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Naples, Rome, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Cannes, Athens, Istanbul, Mykonos and Palma. But did you realise that you can even take a cruise around Britain too? There are plenty of British ports right on your doorstep so this may be the perfect time for you to explore the British Isles.

Here are just some of the our favourite European ports that you can cruise to.

Rome (Civitavecchia)

As one of the most popular cruise stops in the whole of Europe, Civitavecchia is your gateway to the Eternal City of Rome. This truly is a fascinating port, as the fast-paced modern life merges with ancient Roman history to offer a remarkable experience. Just some of the highlights include the Colosseum, Roman Forum and the Vatican.


Istanbul is one of the largest cities in the world and as such offers plenty to see and do. You could easily spend two days exploring the city which is why many cruise lines tend to offer an overnight stop here. Highlights include the Archaeology Museum with its incredible artefacts, a city bus tour in which you will get to see a wealth of sites and a visit to the huge Topkapi Palace.


The second largest city in Norway, Bergen is affectionately known as ‘the gateway to Norway’s famous Fjords’. One of the most enriching activities to do here is take an excursion to Mount Floyen which is a 1,050-foot peak. You can reach the top of this by taking a ride on the Floybanen Funicular, which runs from the city centre - right to the top of the mountain. From here, you’ll have the most incredible views across the whole landscape of the area.

St Petersburg

A magical stop along the Baltic Sea, St Petersburg oozes charm and culture. Must see sights include Catherine the Great’s Palace, which features a 298 metre white, gold and blue façade and is crowned with golden onion domes and St Isaac’s Cathedral with its marble walls embossed with semi-precious stones.
