Detailed Port Descriptions

Southampton, England

It was the departure point for the Mayflower in 1620, and for the ill-fated Titanic in 1912. The charms of London are not far away, but pray tarry in the south to explore other wonders, including Bath, with its natural hot springs and stunning architecture and the mysterious megaliths of Stonehenge, or venture all the way west to Lands End, and the wild moorlands and pirate haunts of Cornwall.

Edinburgh (Leith), Scotland

To discover Edinburgh, head to its historic heart with a walk down The Royal Mile. At the top, perched above the city, is Edinburgh Castle, home to the crown jewels and sweeping views. At the far end is the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s official residence when in Scotland. Buildings steeped in history line the route between the two, with most converted into shops, restaurants, and pubs.

Dundee, Scotland, UK

See why Dundee is referred as the City of Discoveries. A golf-lovers paradise, this is the birthplace of the game and the perfect spot to squeeze in a round. It’s also the ideal location to brush up on your naval history with a tour of the HMS Unicorn, a nearly 200-year-old ship from the golden age of sail to life. Afterward, relax by the River Tay and take in the views of Scotland’s hidden gem.

Invergordon, Scotland

A popular port of call, Invergordon combines a superb natural setting of mountains, tumbling waterfalls, rushing rivers, magnificent gardens, and serene lochs—including Loch Ness and its famous resident. Some must-sees include the castles Dunrobin and Cawdor (reportedly Macbeth’s castle), the flower displays of Beauly, Culloden Battlefield, Shin Falls, Inverness, and Glenmorangie Distillery.

Belfast, Northern Ireland

Stroll along the slipways where the Titanic was built and explore a stunning new museum dedicated to the ship's famous, ill-fated journey. Set out from the city and explore the otherworldly landscape of the Giant's Causeway, with its hexagonal natural rock formations. Wet your whistle at the Bushmills distillery or settle into a classic pub for a pint of Guinness.

Glasgow (Greenock), Scotland

Glasgow is a lively and cosmopolitan city, making a name as a vibrant center of 21st century design, set against a background of   exceptional Victorian architecture and state-of-the-art glass towers which house a growing financial services industry. The real Glasgow can be found in the pubs, where everything from the weather to solving the world’s problems are discussed over a pint.

Douglas, Isle Of Man

Take a trip back in time when you arrive in Douglas on the Isle of Man. Horse-drawn trams guide travelers through scenic sea-front streets just as locals have been doing since 1876. Visit medieval fortresses, abandoned castles (haunted by a ghost dog, as the legend goes), and the village of Cregneash, where residents live in authentic thatched cottages that harken back to a bygone era.

Dublin, Ireland

There’s a story waiting around every corner in Dublin. Spend time in Temple Bar and watch the city come alive, take a ghost tour to discover Dracula’s unnerving connection to Dublin, and behold a view you’ll never forget from the Observation Wheel. Of course, no Irish adventure is complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse where you’ll learn the history of Ireland’s most popular stout.
