British Isles and Ireland

There are so many attractions right here on your doorstep…

As well as cruises further afield, our small ships also seek out ports in England, Scotland and Ireland for surprising experiences you might never have thought possible – proving there’s so much to discover close to home.

For 2018 there’s a fantastic array to choose from, including the Isle of Man TT, Edinburgh Fringe, the ‘Round the Island’ yacht race and Bristol Balloon Festival, to name just a few!

Explore new heights

We’ve planned a host of exciting new experiences to enjoy on our 2018 cruises, including a special itinerary around the British Isles, that will coincide with the Bristol Balloon Festival!

One of the largest in the world, this event attracts over a hundred hot-air balloons – a spectacular sight!

Captivating coasts and islands

The nature of cruising means you’re not limited to the mainland – and it’s a fantastic experience being out on the deck of our small ships, seeing the UK from a new perspective.

You’ll also get to anchor at our surrounding islands too, from the Orkneys to the Channel Islands.

Natural wonders

We can boast millions of years of natural history, and you can see many of the wonders that Mother Nature gave us from our cruises.

Perhaps step onto the unique basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway, or discover stunning Tresco on the Isles of Scilly.

A contrast of cities

Cruising around the UK also offers the chance to explore cities too, such as Liverpool, Newcastle, London and Edinburgh, as well as contrasting Belfast and Dublin.

Or why not go up, up and away at the Bristol Balloon Festival, or even enjoy the thrill of the Isle of Man TT? They’re just some of the exciting new experiences available in 2018!

The Edinburgh Tattoo

Our new Scottish cruise in 2018 will take you to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and bring it on board the ship too!

You might also like to attend the magnificent Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. This event always sells out, but book our cruise and you won’t have to worry – as we have an allocation of tickets so you can enjoy prime seats to the show!
