Over the past year, the dollar-euro exchange rate has been steadily decreasing until recently, one euro was valued at the equivalent of one U.S dollar, marking the first time the two currencies reached parity since December 2002.
Valued at roughly $1.22 at the end of May 2021, the euro now sits at just about $1, the lowest it's been in two decades. This shift now allows Americans who are traveling to Europe to get the ultimate deal when cruising around top Mediterranean yacht charter destinations such as Greece, Spain, France and Italy.
With over 19 countries in the European Union, and Croatia officially becoming the 20th member to adopt the euro as its currency at the start of 2023, charter guests have an abundance of unique and interesting places to explore from the glorious Finland archipelago to the mesmerizing Malta.
