The best European cruise lines include some of the largest and most well-known cruise lines in the world. From large-scale cruising ships to smaller, more intimate river cruises, the cruise lines listed here are all based in Europe. Which ones are truly the greatest? You decide that, with your votes. And this list is by no means complete, so feel free to add any Europe cruise lines that are missing.

Two of the largest and most recognizable names among the best cruise lines in the world are certainly MSC Cruises (which is now based in Switzerland, but originated in Italy) and Costa Cruises (based in Italy). Both of these cruise lines feature massive ships in their lineup, including several cruises that would be more than appropriate for families and even for families who want to cruise with kids.

Some of the European cruise lines on this list feature luxury cruises, giving passengers five-star treatment, from spas to six-star cuisine. Cunard (United Kingdom) and Crystal Cruises (Japan) are certainly included in this category. These cruise lines pamper guests to the max, as they guide them towards some of the most wonderful port destinations in the world.

One of the fastest growing and most popular means of cruising throughout Europe is the river cruise. Some of the companies listed here also appear on this list of the best river cruise lines, not surprisingly. River cruises are certainly unique, and the cruise ships themselves tend to be a bit smaller than the ocean liners, allowing for a lower passenger-to-staff ratio and, usually, fantastic one-on-one service.

Whatever your cruising style, enjoy this list and don't forget to vote!
