Britain and Ireland…
If you’ve ever wanted to discover the beauty of Britain and Ireland, we have a fantastic range of cruises for you to choose from. You can explore historic cities such as Dublin, Belfast, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Newcastle, but the very nature of cruising means you’re not limited to the mainland – it’s a fantastic experience being out on the deck of our small ships, seeing unrivalled views of the coastline.
Captivating coasts and islands
On many itineraries you’ll also get to anchor at the surrounding islands too, from the Orkneys to the Channel Islands.
Perhaps step onto the unique basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway, or discover stunning Tresco on the Isles of Scilly.
Explore new heights
For 2018 there’s a fantastic array of experiences to choose from, including the Isle of Man TT road races, Edinburgh’s famous Fringe Festival, the ‘Round the Island’ yacht race and the Bristol Balloon Festival which is one of the largest in the world attracting over a hundred hot-air balloons!
