Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Amsterdam Here in Amsterdam, you can decide whether the real masterpieces are the gabled houses that flank graceful canals, or the van Goghs, Rembrandts and Vermeers that cover the walls of the city's grand museums.
  • Day 2 - At Sea
  • Day 3 - Portland, England Your visit to Portland and the English countryside of County Dorset will be rich in scenic beauty and centuries-old history. Visit the ancient village of Cerne Abbas and admire its beautiful 14th-century church and 16th-century houses; explore Sherbourne Castle, commissioned by Sir Walter Raleigh in 1594; and marvel at prehistoric Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sample shore excursions: Historic Corfe Castle; Stonehenge & Salisbury; Stunning Sherborne Castle.
  • Day 4 - St Marys, Isles of Scilly
  • Day 5 - Dublin Dublin, the fair city, invites you to wander the streets trod by Joyce, Yeats and Oscar Wilde. Drop in at pubs with mahogany bars and stained glass. In the Trinity College Library, feast your eyes on the illuminated 9th-century Book of Kells. Sample the stout at Guinness Brewery. Shopping's a dream—from a souvenir shillelagh to Waterford crystal
  • Day 6 - Cobh (Cork) The River Lee runs through Cobh (pronounced Cove), past colorful Victorian quays, neo-Gothic St Finbarre's Cathedral and the lively English Market, then winds through farm and woodland to Blarney Castle and its legendary stone, which you must kiss in order to receive the gift of the gab.

  • Day 8 - Killybegs, Donegal
  • Day 9 - At Sea
  • Day 10 - Stornoway, Isle of Lewis

  • Day 12 - Invergordon The skirl of Highland bagpipes calls you ashore. Go in search of your clan tartan, and "Nessie," the spurious monster often sighted in Loch Ness.
