“As well, we recently added an exclusive option to Air Canada Vacations which allows you to book your clients’ cruises 12 months in advance or more to secure the price of the flight portion of the cruise package to select destinations like Athens, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Rome, and Venice.”

For solo travellers, Air Canada Vacations has a selection of single staterooms without the extra supplement.

The most popular time to cruise in Europe is during the summer months, but the shoulder seasons of spring and fall are prime times to see the continent with fewer crowds (and better pricing!).

That means no terminal changes and no bags to recheck, as they’ll be automatically sent to the following Air Canada flight.

Air Canada Vacations has made it easier than ever to book a Flight & Cruise package—when booking a client’s cruise, travel advisors no longer need to call in to add the flight. They now have the option to add it during the booking process, all online!

From the Baltic to the Adriatic: Take Europe by ship

Working with 12 of the biggest, most popular and revered cruise lines in the industry, Air Canada Vacations offers a wide range of European itineraries, from scenic river cruises to luxurious ocean journeys. The challenge is choosing where to go!

A Med cruise is the ultimate way to explore some of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. From the bustling streets of Barcelona to the glamour of Monaco, there is no shortage of excitement on a Western Mediterranean cruise. Some cruise itineraries even include stops in Turkey and Israel, countries known for their rich history, stunning architecture, and fascinating cultures. And for sun lovers, it’s hard to beat the Canary Islands, located off Western Europe.

Then there’s the Eastern Mediterranean, a treasure trove for travellers seeking to explore the hidden gems of Eastern Europe. The ancient ruins of Greece and charming towns of Croatia or Italy’s eastern coast are sure to transport travellers back in time to a world of myth and legend.

A Baltic Sea voyage brings cruisers up close and personal with the colossal walls of the Norwegian Fjords, while sailing the British Isles is all about castles in England, Scotland, and London.

Whether your clients are looking for adventure, relaxation, or a bit of both, a cruise is a perfect way to discover Europe for the first, fifth, or umpteenth time. The choice is theirs, but one thing is for sure–a European cruise will provide unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.

Get that second wind of exploration

If your clients are looking to get more out of their cruise, Air Canada Vacations has itineraries that provide pre- or post-cruise extended stay. Whether it’s staying an extra night in Rome or an extra day in Barcelona, these vacation packages allow travellers to experience each destination with less interruption and more flexibility.
