We admit, right now, we're thinking about how great it would be if we weren't sitting at our desks, typing away with a cup of coffee in hand. Really, we'd rather that be a glass of wine or pint of beer we're enjoying while relaxing and taking in the sights and sounds of Europe. But even though we're working, there's no reason why we wouldn't want you to take some well deserved vacation, enjoy some R&R and reset your mind. For those lucky ones looking for vacation ideas (#jealous), here are our top three European cruise adventure picks for those who love beer, wine and opera.
