The 16 members of the Atlantic Alliance have created their first manual to ease the cruise lines to create new interesting itineraries along Europe’s West Coast.

The Atlantic Alliance is the cruise lines partner for creating and promoting this unique cruise destination, which stretches from Germany to Portugal giving cruise passengers the chance to explore 7 of Europe’s greatest countries. Portugal, Spain, France, England, Belgium, Holland and Germany represent 7 of Europe’s top capitals such as Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Paris, Madrid and Lisbon through 16 of the most beautiful ports along the Atlantic Coast of Europe in just one cruise. The 16 members of Atlantic Alliance Project have developed a number of new theme cruises to facilitate the cruise lines’ marketing efforts. These themes will also inspire the cruise lines to see the region with new eyes as it symbolizes the real European flair and offers cultural highlights and exclusivity beyond conventional luxury.

The themes originate from the multitude and diversity of experiences and attractions that the Coast of Treasures has to offer. They are:

§ Unique masterpieces: UNESCO World Heritage
§ A Must-see: the Capitals of Europe
§ Trace the Roots: the Emigration Cities
§ Art and History: Galleries and Museums
§ Food and Wine, Shopping and Shows
§ Singing and Dancing: Fado, Flamenco, Chansons, Pop, Waltz and Jazz
§ Bright Lights: Christmas Markets in Europe

The themes, concepts and ports are presented on over 40 pages. The combinations are endless, from a short trip to a 14 day cruise.
