Treasures of the British / Irish Isles

Cruise Ireland and England on this 12-day voyage aboard a luxury small ship, taking you to major cities as well as captivating islands off the beaten path; the cruise runs both east and west. On this westbound version, cruise from London to Dublin, and spend two nights each in premier hotels in the heart of each city. On the eastbound version, begin with two nights at a premier hotel in the heart of Dublin, then sail to the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea, where you’ll discover its unique cultural mix of Celtic, Norse and British influences. Most days you'll have a choice of sightseeing excursion; they include: A visit to historic Belfast, where the Titanic was built, and experience the compelling interactive exhibits at the Titanic Experience. Exploring remote Guernsey, a resort island occupied by the Germans during World War II, where military installations, bunkers, and an observation tower still stand amid charming villages and beach hotels. A visit to Portsmouth, England’s premier naval city, where you'll walk the decks of the restored HMS Victory, Admiral Nelson’s ship that won glory at the Battle of Trafalgar. On the Isles of Scilly, off the Cornish peninsula, discover sparsely populated islands of white beaches, fields of flowers, and historic sites that offer an enchanting world apart – on St. Mary’s you’ll visit Hugh Town and see Star Castle, that once defended the island from Spanish invaders and pirates. Immerse yourself in the Irish charms of colorful Cork and Kinsale; enjoy Liverpool, “England’s finest Victorian city,” and its history as home of the Beatles and the "British Invasion." Your ship is small enough to provide a truly intimate experience with luxury amenities including restaurants, lounges, bars, fitness center, and staterooms with ocean views.
