As well as the chance to visit some of the world’s most exotic destinations, a cruise holiday is also a great option for getting to see some of our own brilliant cities and spectacular coastal scenery all from the luxury and comfort of your cruise ship. And with so many great places within such a relatively small island group, you’ll get more time ashore to really experience the cultural variety and see the major sights that make Britain and Ireland such an interesting place to explore.

Dublin is a beautiful and charismatic city and your shore excursions here will offer a glimpse of the Irish capital’s rich history. You might visit the grand and ornate Merrion Square, home of the National Gallery. The Giant’s Causeway with its uniquely quirky rock formations is one of the natural wonders of our islands and it’s a feature of any cruise that stops off at Belfast. As you progress north you may well call in at Greenock whose shipping credentials span the centuries and continue today with the town the modern day gateway to Glasgow, Scotland’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. Spend a few hours shopping here or take a tour up to the nearby shores of the lovely Loch Lomond if you have the time. Most round Britain cruises will also give passengers the opportunity to spend some shore time in exciting and interesting Edinburgh and see the amazing Georgian architecture. Perhaps you’ll take a trip to the famous castle and Holyrood, the Queen’s official Scottish residence. The beautiful Isles of Scilly and the charming Hebrides, as well as Channel Islands stop-offs and visits to other great port cities like Newcastle, Liverpool and Cork also feature on various itineraries offered by some of the world’s leading cruise lines.
