Day 2 – At Sea
Day 3 – Invergordon, Scotland (United Kingdom) - Invergordon is a key port with an important naval history stretching back through two World Wars. The small, yet modern town is a charming coastal gateway to the beautiful Scottish Highlands and the incredible scenery forms a stunning backdrop to the romantic castles and historic battlefields.
Day 4 – Ullapool, Scotland (United Kingdom) - Ullapool is a traditional Highland fishing village founded by the British Fishery Society in 1788. The town has two main streets with signs in English and Gaelic, and a number of shops selling quality crafts and gifts.
Day 5 – Tobermory, Isle of Mull (United Kingdom) - The picture-postcard village Tobermory is the capital of the Isle of Mull. Mull is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides and its diverse landscape ranges from High Mountain and wild moorland, to wave-lashed sea cliffs and sandy beaches.
Day 6 – Dublin (Republic of Ireland) - The capital of the Emerald Isle is, with its friendly locals, fascinating history, legendary tradition and charming mix of medieval, Georgian and modern architecture, a city of unforgettable character. Dublin Castle, Christchurch Cathedral, Trinity College and the beautiful square St Stephen’s Green lie south of the Liffey.
Day 7 – St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly (United Kingdom) - The magical Isles of Scilly lie just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. St Mary’s, the largest of the five inhabited islands, is a delight with white sand beaches, tranquil waters and stunning seascapes. The attractive village of Hugh Town, considered the ‘capital’, is the hub of the islands’ activity.
Day 8 – St. Peter Port, Guernsey (Channel Islands) - For over 800 years Castle Cornet has stood guard over St. Peter Port. The attractive town is a delight with cobbled streets, steep stairways and alleyways winding their way down between the houses to a picturesque waterfront of grey and white stone buildings. Guernsey is geographically closer to France, yet loyal to the British crown, and this is reflected in the wonderful Anglo-French ambience around the town.
Day 9 – Honfleur (France) - Honfleur, which with its narrow, half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets and charming old harbour set in a sheltered cove off the Seine’s tidal estuary, is simply enchanting. Unlike many of its Normandy neighbours, Honfleur was spared during the bombing of World War Two and nestled in its tidy, picturesque streets historic buildings house art galleries, artists’ studios, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and fine souvenir shops.
Day 10 – London Tilbury (United Kingdom) (docks 08.00)
