Now being British the isles do hold a special place in my heart and this is what stood out most when I came across this gorgeous British Isles Cruise.
I love the fact that it starts in Amsterdam because there is a non stop flight from Calgary to Amsterdam – quick and easy way to get there.
But let’s look at the itinerary –
After leaving Amsterdam you head out to Dover to spend a day there exploring the beautiful countryside. Of course the first thing you will see from far away will be the White Cliffs of Dover – a welcoming sign for returning soldiers and sailors during WWII. There is also Dorset Castle – over 2000 years of history. So much to see.
Next stop is Portland in Dorset – this is another spectacular part of the coastline. I used to live about an hour away in Devon so we often would head down to Weymouth, right next to Portland, to visit the beach. While you are there have some fish and chips – best you’ll ever get.
It gets better – with visits to Cork in Ireland – make sure to enjoy a fresh Guinness when you are there. Then on to a visit to Liverpool – then back to Ireland to visit Waterford. This is a lovely time of year to visit Ireland. After Waterford head up to Belfast. Home of the Titanic and of course “the troubles”. Then on to Scotland and your last visit being the Shetland Islands – you might even see some of the ponies that this place is famous for.
Wow – what an itinerary – I love it.
And I love the fact that this is on one of my favourite cruiselines – Celebrity Cruises – because they include all the drinks, tips and wifi.
Also it is on the Celebrity Apex, sister ship of the Celebrity Beyond which I attended. I love the lay out of these ships and the artworks on board.
The other good news is that we have some rather special pricing – exclusively for us.
