My Husband is not a big traveler and is hesitant to take a cruise, river or ocean, with 2000 strangers. He is interested in the Baltic countries as well as Ireland, Scotland, England area, or a river cruise though Germany. I am a huge traveler but...have not liked cruising as the time spent in each port is too short and rife with strife if we go it alone (time and getting left behind due to unforeseen situations) rather then with the group tours. We want good food, nice cabins and time in port. At this point small is the way to go I am validating but....Cost is not the issue, but I want my husband excited AFTER the cruise is over so he will do it again! Help!
