British Isles and Ireland cruises

There are so many attractions right here on your doorstep…

As well as cruises further afield, our small British cruise ships also seek out ports in England, Scotland and Ireland, along with the Orkney Islands, Channel Islands and Isle of Man in 2021.

They prove there’s so much to discover much closer to home, from historic houses and period architecture, to sweeping national parks and coastal scenery. Take your pick of cruises aboard our new boutique ships Spirit of Discovery and Spirit of Adventure, and get closer to the history and culture of each destination right here in the British Isles.
