Visit the remotest parts of our islands

Admire incredible British landscapes in the spring, from the Norfolk Broads to the Scottish Highlands.

Bask in the springtime bloom of the British Isles on your circumnavigation. Featured on this 14-night itinerary are soaring cityscapes filled with history and colourful countryside scenery inviting you to step off the beaten track. Great Yarmouth, your first destination, is a bustling seaside town within easy reach of the Norfolk Broads and Sandringham House. A visit to this royal retreat will reveal its history and even a few of its secrets! Continuing up the eastern coastline of Britain, you will visit Newhaven, providing easy access to Edinburgh. During your time in the Gothic city, perhaps visit the castle, around which the old quarter is huddled, and don’t miss an opportunity to step inside the enigmatic Rosslyn Chapel – the subject of many mysteries. Welcoming you to the Highlands is Ullapool. During calm weather its whitewashed cottages are picturesquely reflected in Loch Broom, and Ullapool is an excellent base for gentle wildlife-filled hikes.

For wild landscapes and unspoilt nature, look no further than the Isle of Skye, punctuated by powerful waterfalls and plenty of curious rock formations. The island also features several excellent distilleries for a dram or two of whisky! To recharge your batteries, the following day Spirit of Discovery will cruise the St Kilda Archipelago, a World Heritage site and a sea birds' paradise. Greenock is your final Scottish port before arriving into Belfast, Northern Ireland’s capital and the city from which RMS Titanic was launched. You can learn all about its fateful voyage at Titanic Belfast, an interactive exhibition opened in 2012.

Heading south, your penultimate destination is Dún Laoghaire, a port located just 30 minutes from Dublin’s city centre. It is a city synonymous with literature, music and, of course, Guinness – all of which can be enjoyed on a programme of optional excursions. Before returning home, your ship will berth on the Isle of Portland, gateway to Dorset and a stone’s throw from Weymouth. Long associated with sailing and maritime activity, Portland is also within easy reach of Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, Corfe Castle, Dorchester and Bovington Tank Museum.
