Some of the answers

Sound advice … “Figure out collectively as a family what you want to see and do while in Europe” –@joyceeOlivaPR

Why Europe... Mediterranean destinations are full of history, but you can also laze in the sun. Great food. And gelato for the kids- @CaptGreybeard

Top cities and tips:

Venice and Dubrovnik was a favorite of  @cruiseradio.  Barcelona was high on the list for the easy walk around town by @CaptGreybeard.

Great tips from Family Travel Network’s  @kidtravel who suggested  that families “Look for ports that have great flight connections & rates + places you want to spend extra time exploring”
