What's a cheap way to survive in Europe over the summer?

A few friends and I (three of us total, two guys and a girl; the girl and one of the guys are in a relationship) were planning on going to go to Europe over the summer this year. We want to go to Sweden, England, France, and The Netherlands. We've gotten an invitation to stay on Copenhagen on a friend's boat for a week, so we might end up doing that too.
We're all in college and pretty much broke.
We want to spend a week in each country (probably Stockholm, London, Paris, and Amsterdam respectively), but we're not sure how we'll be able to afford the trip.
We don't exactly want to backpack across Europe and stay in hostels, so any suggestions for other stuff would be nice.
Also, stuff to do that's not touristy in those countries would be nice as well.
What would be an expensive way to get from Boston to the other side of the pond? Do people still do courier exchange-luggage-for-a-package things anymore?
Thanks for the input and Happy New Year!
