Highlights of this cruise:
Dublin, Ireland is thought to be almost a thousand years old, but the city has transitioned well into the 21st century. Easily navigated by foot, the city’s 44 square miles and cobblestoned streets speak to its storied history of patriots and writers, the latter of which includes: Joyce, Yeats, Wilde, and Beckett. Must-sees include Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green Park, Newgrange, Dublin Castle, the National Museum of Ireland and the James Joyce Cultural Centre. However, your Dublin cruise is not complete without a pint (or two) of Guinness and an afternoon-into-evening spent in one of the city’s many pubs. Travel to the seaside town of Malahide to enter its grand castle set amid 250 acres of breathtaking grounds. Climb the stone stairway and explore the castle’s Great Hall and intricately carved Oak Room. Afterwards, head to Malahide Village and stop in local pub for an Irish Coffee and some good cheer. Delve into Ireland’s past with visits to a pair of storied landmarks. First, enter Dublin Castle, symbol of English rule since the 13th century. Tour its apartments adorned with Killybegs carpets and Waterford chandeliers then visit the Old Library at Trinity Collage to view the mysterious Book of Kells, Ireland’s most treasured medieval manuscript.
Glasgow (Greenock), Scotland
Greenock is your gateway to Glasgow on Scotland cruises. Only an hour away by train, Scotland's largest city, Glasgow, displays a striking mix of architectural styles and plenty of Scottish character. At first glance, Glasgow, Scotland presents a gothic beauty that’s certainly reason enough to visit on its own. What lies inside these sober Victorian façades is a city brewing with an artistic energy, five-star restaurants, ale soaked local pubs, and fashion-forward shops. Indoors, it offers a diverse lineup of museums, art galleries, eateries, and shops—some of the best outside London—with all the latest trends and some quirky second-hand gems. On cruises to Scotland, and by extension, Glasgow, it becomes evident that this place honors its industrial past while still looking towards the future. The live music scene here is one of the richest and varied in Britain. You may be tempted to visit the The Arches, a unique bar, club and arts venue located beneath Glasgow’s Central Station. Victorian buildings mingle amongst a modern, urban city with an emerging culinary scene, top-notch retail shopping, and first-rate museums and art galleries. After your hustle and bustle, you may want to slow things down a bit and cruise the newly revitalized River Clyde; the 8th longest river in the UK and one that was of great import when the city was a robust center for shipping as well as ship building.
With a history that dates back more than 800 years, Liverpool has been a major port for centuries. The awe-inspiring architecture, and amazing restaurants are just the beginning of this exciting city. The art scene is probably best known for the Beatles, and you can visit where it all began for them. The amazing galleries, theatres and museums make Liverpool a cultural capital.
Belfast, Northern Ireland
Belfast has undergone an enormous transformation in recent years and, thanks to a focus on expansion and regeneration, the city is now experiencing a tourism renaissance. Today, free from the mayhem that once was, this capital city of Northern Ireland has done a terrific job in both recovering from her tumultuous recent past and creating a thriving, positive public image. With new cultural quarters—the Cathedral Quarter, the Gaeltacht Quarter, the Queen’s Quarter and the Titanic Quarter—the former linen and shipbuilding epicenter is a flourishing community that blends industry with culture. Here, where the Titanic was so carefully built, you can see beautifully restored Victorian architecture, indulge retail therapy at a fabulous shopping center, and enjoy the quintessentially Irish experience at the lively waterfront, which is a friendly hub of live music, overflowing pubs and modern art. During your cruise from Belfast, experience amazing waterfront lined with modern art galleries, clubs that feature music from artists both local and from abroad, a chef-driven food scene that favors local and seasonal ingredients, and pubs pulsating with the Belfast way of life.
The White Cliffs of Dover stand as a symbol of England's legendary strength and character. These cliffs were the first sign of home for British soldiers returning from the battlefields of WWII. Dover is a post-war city whose beauty lies in the history and pride that lives beneath her terrain. Among Dover's attractions are the massive Dover Castle and the unique archaeological site of the Roman Painted House, uncovered 28 feet underground by a road crew in 1970. Dover Castle, easily the most iconic and enduring attraction of this clifftop city, dates back some 2,000 years. So much history passed through the stone walls of this ancient castle, the best way to relive it is through the wonderful, immersive tours that are offered on your Dover cruise. You will have the opportunity to see the secret underground tunnels the English army used to conduct operations, as well as to evacuate many troops from the beaches of Dunkirk. Take in the Old-English opulence on a tour of Leeds Castle, whose stately grounds and grand chambers have played host to six medieval Queens. You’ll also find plenty of scrumptious and hearty English dining options fit for a royal feast, from Steak and Ale Pies to plenty of international choices, including Greek, Mexican, Italian, and French restaurants.
Portland, Dorset, UK
Landing at this huge 19th-century harbor in Southern England, originally constructed for the Royal Navy, puts you within a few hours of countless world-renowned icons, including those of London. The town sits on a tiny peninsula jutting into the English Channel. At the tip is Portland Bill, with three lighthouses. Two 18th-century towers have been converted into holiday apartments and a birdwatching center. The 1906 lighthouse, painted red and white, invites you to climb its 153 steps to the top. Today a tourist economy centers on its picturesque old harbor, the site of lovely pubs, cafés, and restaurants. Hoist a pint. Try the fish and chips. A stroll around this vibrant harbor is one of life's simple pleasures.
Cork (Cobh), Ireland
Cork (Cobh), Ireland- Affectionately referred to as ‘The real capital of Ireland’, Cork is a musical and resilient place where tradition and modernity often meld; where live music and local pride are the order of the day. Navigate Cork's hilly streets and discover the melody of Ireland's most talkative citizenry with their signature gift of gab.
The seaside town of Cobh is located on the south coast of Ireland in County Cork and is considered one of the world’s most noteworthy, natural harbors. For history buffs, Cork is also a great find. Ring the Shandon Bells inside the 300-year old tower of St. Anne’s Church. Admire the French Gothic spires of St. Finbarre’s Cathedral and stroll through 17th-century alleys surrounded by the River Lee. Ireland’s second city is fast becoming one of Europe’s most playful destinations.
You’ll easily find yourself downing a pint of stout in a cozy pub or enjoying hearty Irish favorites at a corner bistro on your Cork cruise. The town also boasts an array of market-source international restaurants serving French, Spanish, and American cuisine. Visit local artisans and witness their skills in the arts of weaving and cutting crystal. Cork is filled with the lore, tradition, and good cheer of Ireland at its best.
