The UK & Ireland
You don’t need to venture across the world to encounter
glorious scenery, untamed landscapes, ancient myths and
culture-rich cities. You can see it all on the shores of our
very own isles. The captivating voyages in this section offer
a plethora of unexpected and awe-inspiring sights, all waiting
on your doorstep.
Scottish lochs and isles, and iconic Irish cities are the jewels of this selection of enticing
cruises. From the conveniently located departure ports of Liverpool and Edinburgh’s
Rosyth, you can discover secluded pockets of the Orkney Islands and Shetland Isles, go
monster-hunting in the stunning Scottish Highlands, and savour an authentic taste of
Ireland in Belfast and Dublin. You may be tempted to experience the spectacular Royal
Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the International Festival in Scotland’s vibrant capital.
From the ‘Gateway to the Lochs’, Greenock, the wild Trossachs National Park and the
bonnie banks of Loch Lomond are sure to stir the senses. If it’s a touch of dramatic
ancient history you’re after, then a sailing to Shetland’s Lerwick and Orkney’s Kirkwall
– which is the site of the UNESCO-listed Neolithic village of Skara Brae – will transport
you back in time.
The Isle of Mull’s puffins and eagles, and the pretty, coloured hues of Tobermory,
feature on a number of sailings, as does the extraordinary geology of Fingal’s Cave,
and the towering sea stacks of The Old Man of Hoy. Scotland’s East Coast is equally
prominent, with journeys to Ullapool, home of Scotland’s first Geopark; the awesome
cascading flow of Eas a’Chual Aluinn – Britain’s highest waterfall; and the beautiful
waters of Loch Broom.
No voyage in this corner of the globe would be complete without a visit to the Emerald
Isle. Dublin’s fair city offers history, culture, shopping and unrivalled warm hospitality.
The revitalised Belfast is equally welcoming; visitors should have the RMS Titanic
Experience and a trip to the mysterious Giant’s Causeway firmly on their schedule.
