Itinerary

Day 1Bergen, Norway

Your British Isles cruise begins here. When you arrive in Bergen, encircled by majestic mountains, fjords and glaciers, you’ll quickly understand how its setting inspired the Viking sagas. With your ship berthed next to Bryggen wharf, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can easily stroll along its waterfront once you’ve settled in to your veranda stateroom. This evening mingle with the locals and dine ashore, as we will be spending the night in port.

Day 2Bergen, Norway

Take in more of Bergen’s Norwegian charms this morning. You’ll see the beautiful 18th-century wooden houses and visit the Hanseatic Museum on your included tour. Or, take an excursion to Troldhaugen, the home of Norway’s famous composer Edvard Grieg, or a trip to the peak of Mt. Ulriken to savor an Ulriken bun, a cinnamon pastry, at the mountaintop restaurant.

Day 3Shetland Islands (Lerwick), Scotland

Admire the rugged beauty of one of Scotland’s remote island outposts today. Set out to explore the island and meet its famous residents—Shetland ponies. Perhaps visit the remarkable archaeological site of Jarlshof—evidence of a thriving Viking presence. Or, sail the seas on board a replica Viking longship and try your hand at rowing for a true Viking travel experience.

Day 4The Highlands (Invergordon), Scotland

Call today on Invergordon, on the doorstep of the mountainous, heather-covered Scottish Highlands. One of Europe’s most sparsely populated regions, the famed Highlands provide a fascinating glimpse into the days of warring clans. Enjoy a scenic drive into their splendor, stopping to view Loch Ness, legendary home of the elusive monster, and the historic ruins of Urquhart Castle, one of Scotland’s largest, perched on a ledge overlooking the famous lake.

Day 5Edinburgh, Scotland

Today, you’ll take in the medieval and neoclassical beauty of Scotland’s capital, gracefully set among rocky hills and gracious green ribbons of park. On an included tour, browse the Royal Mile—the famed avenue connecting the hilltop Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. You might elect to explore Edinburgh Castle more closely, including a visit to the Crown Jewels. Or, venture to medieval St. Andrews, birthplace of golf.

Day 6Orkney Islands (Kirkwall), Scotland

Today, immerse yourself in the rich history of the Orkney Islands, ruled by the Vikings from the 9th to 13th century. See the Standing Stones of Stenness, a 5,000-year-old circle of stones, and explore this ancient monument. Visit the well-preserved Stone Age settlement of Skara Brae, or for a true taste of Scotland, take a trip to the world’s most northerly whisky distillery.

Day 7The Highlands (Ullapool), Scotland

Cruise through the stunningly scenic Western Isles and anchor in the pristine waters of Loch Broom to explore Ullapool, situated in a spectacularly remote area of the United Kingdom. Dramatic mountain peaks pierce the sky here, dwarfing this former herring port village. You will disembark for a panoramic tour that takes you deep into the village-dotted Wester Ross landscape, passing pristine lakes, craggy massifs and tranquil castles.

Day 8Belfast, Northern Ireland

Explore Belfast, a hidden gem of the British Isles and capital of Northern Ireland. This historic city has undergone a renaissance that has bolstered its economy and its culture. During a tour, witness a unique blend of British-influenced Victorian flair in its stately public buildings and an authentic Irish charm in its pubs and shops. See the quaint Cathedral Quarter, the majestic City Hall, bustling St. George’s Market and the poignant murals recalling its past turbulence. If you wish, you may visit the nearby Giant’s Causeway, a spectacular seaside formation of 40,000 conjoined basalt columns.

Day 9Liverpool, England

Discover Liverpool, birthplace of the Beatles and a stunning cultural center of soaring churches and impressive architecture. You will see the neoclassical St. George’s Hall and the cone-shaped Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. On the storied waterfront, part of the city’s Maritime Mercantile UNESCO World Heritage Site, marvel at the “Three Graces,” a trio of magnificent buildings. You might also follow in the footsteps of the Beatles, Liverpool’s most famous sons.

Day 10Holyhead, Wales

Soak up the Welsh ambiance of Holyhead, a cozy coastal enclave on the northwestern tip of Wales. This fascinating town is contained within one of the few three-walled Roman forts in Europe, protected on the fourth side by the sea. You will see the historic St. Cybi’s Church at the fortress’s center and visit the Holyhead Maritime Museum, chronicling local seafaring history. You will also have time to explore the bustling waterfront.

Day 11Dublin, Ireland

Discover Dublin, the Republic of Ireland’s charismatic capital on the Liffey River. Founded as a Viking settlement, today it is one of Europe’s most significant cultural hubs. A panoramic tour takes you to Trinity College; its library is the city’s repository of some five million volumes. You will also see the soaring St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Christ Church Cathedral, two major centers of the country’s religion, and pass by neoclassical City Hall and the sprawling Dublin Castle.

Day 12Scenic Cruising: English Channel

Cruise the Irish Sea into the Celtic Sea. Along with a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean to the west of the British Isles, these waters were once known simply as “Western Approaches” as recently as the mid-20th century. You will round the southern shores of Wales and England and enter the English Channel, making your way to the Strait of Dover. Enjoy your ship’s many amenities as you cruise, perhaps indulging in a massage at The Spa, taking high tea in the Wintergarden and closing your day with fine cuisine at Manfredi’s Italian Restaurant.

Day 13Dover, England

Call today on the city of Dover, its importance as a port dating back to the Bronze Age. You can journey to the medieval city of Canterbury, made famous through Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, to visit the shrine of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket. Or, immerse yourself in natural beauty at Sissinghurst Castle and Garden, an Elizabethan-era mansion which showcases a classic English country garden.

Day 14London (Greenwich), England

Discover the celebrated Royal Borough of Greenwich—part of which, Maritime Greenwich, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. London is just a short drive away, so you can take in the regal city and all its splendor. See the Tower of London, Parliament and Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and St. Paul’s Cathedral. Or venture into the countryside to visit Windsor Castle, one of the royal residences. Alternately, step off the ship to tour Greenwich, its excellent National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory from where the world’s clocks are set.

Day 15London, England

Disembark your ship this morning as your journey through the British Isles comes to a close, or extend your stay in London. Alternatively, you may continue your journey with an extension opportunity in Scotland.
