Detailed Port Descriptions

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam, the beautiful capital of the Netherlands, has the wonderful atmosphere of a 17th-century city combined with the contemporary character of a modern metropolis. It is a treasure chest of superb architecture and is famous for its canals and extraordinary museums. Once you arrive on your cruise to Amsterdam, be sure to catch the city’s highlights, especially the iconic   houses that straddle the snaking canal system of which the city is known for. When in Amsterdam, do as the Dutch and discover this first-class city on two wheels as this is one of the most bike-friendly places on the planet. When it comes to viewing the world’s great artistic masterpieces, you could hardly pick a better city. Pay a visit to the famous Van Gogh Museum and ponder the works of Holland’s favorite son. Afterwards, pop into a cozy cafe or tavern and let the charms of this city wash over you.

Dover, England

The White Cliffs of Dover stand as a symbol of England's legendary strength and character. These cliffs were the first sign of home for British soldiers returning from the battlefields of WWII. Dover is a post-war city whose beauty lies in the history and pride that lives beneath her terrain. Among Dover's attractions are the massive Dover Castle and the unique archaeological site of the Roman Painted House, uncovered 28 feet underground by a road crew in 1970. Dover Castle, easily the most iconic and enduring attraction of this clifftop city, dates back some 2,000 years. So much history passed through the stone walls of this ancient castle, the best way to relive it is through the wonderful, immersive tours that are offered on your Dover cruise. You will have the opportunity to see the secret underground tunnels the English army used to conduct operations, as well as to evacuate many troops from the beaches of Dunkirk. Take in the Old-English opulence on a tour of Leeds Castle, whose stately grounds and grand chambers have played host to six medieval Queens. You’ll also find plenty of scrumptious and hearty English dining options fit for a royal feast, from Steak and Ale Pies to plenty of international choices, including Greek, Mexican, Italian, and French restaurants.

Portland, Dorset, UK

Landing at this huge 19th-century harbor in Southern England, originally constructed for the Royal Navy, puts you within a few hours of countless world-renowned icons, including those of London. The town sits on a tiny peninsula jutting into the English Channel. At the tip is Portland Bill, with three lighthouses. Two 18th-century towers have been converted into holiday apartments and a birdwatching center. The 1906 lighthouse, painted red and white, invites you to climb its 153 steps to the top. Today a tourist economy centers on its picturesque old harbor, the site of lovely pubs, cafés, and restaurants. Hoist a pint. Try the fish and chips. A stroll around this vibrant harbor is one of life's simple pleasures.

Cork (Cobh), Ireland

Affectionately referred to as ‘The real capital of Ireland’, Cork is a musical and resilient place where tradition and modernity often meld; where live music and local pride are the order of the day. Navigate Cork's hilly streets and discover the melody of Ireland's most talkative citizenry with their signature gift of gab. The seaside town of Cobh is located on the south coast of Ireland in County Cork and is considered one of the world’s most noteworthy, natural harbors. For history buffs, Cork is also a great find. Ring the Shandon Bells inside the 300-year old tower of St. Anne’s Church. Admire the French Gothic spires of St. Finbarre’s Cathedral and stroll through 17th-century alleys surrounded by the River Lee. Ireland’s second city is fast becoming one of Europe’s most playful destinations. You’ll easily find yourself downing a pint of stout in a cozy pub or enjoying hearty Irish favorites at a corner bistro on your Cork cruise. The town also boasts an array of market-source international restaurants serving French, Spanish, and American cuisine. Visit local artisans and witness their skills in the arts of weaving and cutting crystal. Cork is filled with the lore, tradition, and good cheer of Ireland at its best.

Liverpool, England

With a history that dates back more than 800 years, Liverpool has been a major port for centuries. The awe-inspiring architecture, and amazing restaurants are just the beginning of this exciting city. The art scene is probably best known for the Beatles, and you can visit where it all began for them. The amazing galleries, theatres and museums make Liverpool a cultural capital.

Belfast, Northern Ireland

Belfast has undergone an enormous transformation in recent years and, thanks to a focus on expansion and regeneration, the city is now experiencing a tourism renaissance. Today, free from the mayhem that once was, this capital city of Northern Ireland has done a terrific job in both recovering from her tumultuous recent past and creating a thriving, positive public image. With new cultural  quarters—the Cathedral Quarter, the Gaeltacht Quarter, the Queen’s Quarter and the Titanic Quarter—the former linen and shipbuilding epicenter is a flourishing community that blends industry with culture. Here, where the Titanic was so carefully built, you can see beautifully restored Victorian architecture, indulge retail therapy at a fabulous shopping center, and enjoy the quintessentially Irish experience at the lively waterfront, which is a friendly hub of live music, overflowing pubs and modern art. During your cruise from  Belfast, experience amazing waterfront lined with modern art galleries, clubs that feature music from artists both local and from abroad, a chef-driven food scene that favors local and seasonal ingredients, and pubs pulsating with the Belfast way of life.

Glasgow (Greenock), Scotland

Greenock is your gateway to Glasgow on Scotland cruises. Only an hour away by train, Scotland's largest city, Glasgow, displays a striking mix of architectural styles and plenty of Scottish character. At first glance, Glasgow, Scotland presents a gothic beauty that’s certainly reason enough to visit on its own. What lies inside these sober Victorian façades is a city brewing with an artistic energy, five-star restaurants, ale soaked local pubs, and fashion-forward shops. Indoors, it offers a diverse lineup of museums, art galleries, eateries, and shops—some of the best outside London—with all the latest trends and some quirky second-hand gems. On cruises to Scotland, and by extension, Glasgow, it becomes evident that this place honors its industrial past while still looking towards the future. The live music scene here is one of the richest and varied in Britain. You may be tempted to visit the The Arches, a unique bar, club and arts venue located beneath Glasgow’s Central Station. Victorian buildings mingle amongst a modern, urban city with an emerging culinary scene, top-notch retail shopping, and first-rate museums and art galleries. After your hustle and bustle, you may want to slow things down a bit and cruise the newly revitalized River Clyde; the 8th longest river in the UK and one that was of great import when the city was a robust center for shipping as well as ship building.

Lerwick/Shetland, Scotland

Almost 100 islands make up the Shetland Islands, which sit on the northernmost part of the British Isles. Lerwick is Shetland's only town and is a cosmopolitan seaport that offers warm hospitality to its visitors. The old waterfront is filled with pleasure boats, visiting yachts, and more. Travelers can experience everything from lively "theme" bars and clubs to a Town Hall that boasts breathtaking stained glassed glass windows, each with its own story.
