Ports of Call
Amsterdam, The Netherlands (Embark and Debark) - Amsterdam is a great city in which to discover the charms of northern Europe. The graceful canals of its central district are lined with beautiful gabled houses. It's many, grand art museums display masterpieces of Rembrandt and Vermeer and the largest collection of Van Gogh's work is found here. Fine food is also easy to find along with ample opportunities for shopping (including excellent vintage finds). This great city is well worth a day or two's stay before or after your cruise.
Belfast, Northern Ireland - So much of Ireland's political history is tied up in Belfast that many visitors are surprised to find that it is also a modern city, blending old and new effortlessly as the troubles of its pass fade into history. A day trip away are the Giants' Causeway (a series of stone pillars that extends to Scotland) and the spectacular Antrim coast.
Bruges,(Zeebrugge),Belgium - Bordering the delta of the Scheldt, and the Maas and Rhine rivers, Zeebrugge could be one of the most unique seaports you visit in this lifetime. Zeebrugge is blessed with a picturesque network of canals and fields peppered with graceful windmills. Zeebrugge serves as a gateway port to the historic city of Brussels.
Cobh (Cork), Ireland - Cobh is just a short train ride to charming Cork, Ireland, whose hilly streets echo with the music of what is renowned to be Ireland's most talkative citizenry. Visit local artisans and witness their skills in the arts of weaving and cutting crystal. The charming English Market is a great place to get a taste of the local flavors (including the chance for an excellent meal at the Farmgate Cafe located within). Also, Cork's lovely art museum has many fine works by lesser known artists from the last few centuries.
Dublin, Ireland - Dublin, the fair city, invites you to wander the streets trod by Joyce, Yeats and Oscar Wilde. Drop in at pubs with mahogany bars and stained glass. In the Trinity College Library, feast your eyes on the illuminated 9th-century Book of Kells. Sample the world's most famous stout at the original Guinness Brewery. And, of course, there are plenty of shopping opportunities — from a souvenir shillelagh to Waterford crystal.
Edinburgh, Scotland - The capital of Scotland and seventh most populous city in the United Kingdom, Edinburgh is incredibly rich in both history and modern pleasures. Get the lay of the land with a bird's eye panorama after climbing the 287 steps of the Scott Monument. Then experience history at Edinburgh Castle while art lovers get a "fix" at the Scottish National Museum. Follow either with a meal at the Doric where you can get a fine meal upstairs and fine scotch downstairs. All of the above are within easy walking distance of each other. Follow this with a walk along the Royal Mile and be sure to explore some of the side alleys (called "closes") along the way; that's where the real fun is.

If you're in the mood for a deeper look into Scottish history, visit the National Museum of Scotland where you can get immersed in the earlier lives of the Scots and even see a T. Rex skeleton. Interested in a more botanical experience? How about a visit to the Royal Botanic Garden? A romantic meal at a fine restaurant (even a michelin star restaurant, if you'd like) can be found at Leith, an industrial area near the port that has been given new life as a dining and drinking destination.

Are you a golfer? Ever hear of St. Andrews? You know, the place where they invented Golf. It's here (and yes, you can rent clubs).
Inverness/Loch Ness, Scotland - Inverness, aptly called the capital of the Highlands is a Gaelic word meaning "mouth of the River Ness", which flows out of Loch Ness, famous for its Monster!, into the Moray Firth, famous for its dolphins. Holidaymakers and locals alike, from all over the northern Highlands, take advantage of the excellent shopping, clubs and restaurants which have opened up in recent years, since Inverness city centre has modernised and blossomed.
Liverpool, England - Roll over Beethoven! Liverpool is the birthplace of the Beatles! And it won't take long to discover the amazing legacy of art, music and sport that influence this charming city. A short walk from your ship you'll find Albert Dock a bustling, converted maritime business center that now houses all sorts of entertainments (shopping, food, "The Beatles Story" and wonderful modern art at the Tate Liverpool. A bit further afield (but still quite walkable, if you're hearty), you'll find the Cavern Club, where the Beatles got their start.

Our staff can assist you with all your travel arrangements.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
