Itinerary


Day 1 - Southampton, England, UK

Located in the picturesque English county of Hampshire, Southampton is a vibrant waterfront city, serviced by direct trains to London, an airport, and an international cruise terminal. Explore the city’s maritime heritage and links to RMS Titanic in the Sea City Museum, see contemporary British art in the Cultural Quarter, or walk the medieval walls in the Old Town, paying a visit to the Tudor House and Garden. Further afield you will find The New Forest National Park, Winchester Cathedral, Stonehenge, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the Isle of Wight, while the city’s thriving craft beer and culinary scene will leave you spoilt for choice when hunger strikes. 


Day 2 - At sea


Day 3 - Cork (tours from Ringaskiddy), Ireland


Day 4 - Dublin, Ireland

Dublin's winning charm is world famous. The dark waters of the River Liffey swirling beneath the Halfpenny Bridge transport you to a different age: the literary Dublin of Yeats, Shaw, Swift and Wilde.

Explore to your heart’s content, from St. Stephen’s Green, down bustling O’Connell Street, to the welcome “craic” and Guinness of the hundred or more bars that dot this uniquely welcoming place.


Day 5 - At sea


Day 6 - Stornoway, Scotland, UK

Stornoway, which is located in the Scotland Western Isles, is a place of harmony and diversity. Both Gaelic and English is spoken, eagles live close to otters, both hint at the unity of the community. If you’ve ever listened to the famous UK shipping forecast, you’ll have heard the name Stornoway mentioned in the cryptic but soothing relay of crucial information to seafarers.


Day 7 - At sea


Day 8 - Glasgow (tours from Greenock), Scotland

Greenock is your gateway to Glasgow, arguably Scotland’s most animating cultural city. It serves as a brilliant stepping-stone to some of Scotland's most rugged and breathtaking scenery to the north. As you disembark at Greenock to explore Glasgow, you will likely be greeted by the stirring sights and sounds of a traditional Scottish pipe band in full tartan regalia.


Day 9 - Belfast, NI, UK

Belfast, capital of Northern Ireland, enjoys a wonderful setting of high hills, sea lough and river valley. Founded in the 17th century, the city prospered to become a world-leading industrial center.

Overcoming much of its recent political turbulence, Belfast has emerged as a vibrant, destination of beautiful Victorian buildings, stylish boutiques and charming old pubs.


Day 10 - Liverpool, England, UK

Liverpool and its port was once home of Cunard Line. The Cunard Building, Royal Liver Building, and the Port of Liverpool Building, all on Pier Head, are often described as the city’s “Three Graces.”


Day 11 - At sea


Day 12 - St Peter Port, Guernsey

Fortified against centuries of successful and foiled invasions, Channel Island Guernsey is dotted with wonderful castles and coastal defense forts. This quaint harbor is Guernsey’s charming capital.


Day 13 - Southampton, England, UK
