Ireland, Iceland & Scotland

 

Celebrity Cruises on the
Celebrity Eclipse

April 30 - May 10, 2018

11 Days / 10 Nights

(Roundtrip from Dublin)

 

Day 1

Dublin, Ireland ~  (EMBARK) 10:15 PM

Dublin is thought to be almost a thousand years old, but the city has transitioned well into the 21st century. Easily navigated by foot, the city’s 44 square miles and cobblestoned streets speak to its storied history of patriots and writers, the latter of which includes, Joyce, Yeats, Wilde, and Beckett. Must-sees include Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green Park, Newgrange, Dublin Castle, the National Museum of Ireland and the James Joyce Cultural Centre. However, no visit to Dublin would be complete without a pint (or two) of Guinness and an afternoon-into-evening spent in one of the city’s many pubs.

 

Day 2

Belfast, Northern Ireland ~ 11:00 AM - 8:15 PM

Belfast has undergone an enormous transformation in recent years and thanks to a focus on expansion and regeneration, the city is now experiencing a tourism renaissance. Today, free from the mayhem that once was, this major Northern Ireland city has done a terrific job in both disassociating from her past and creating a thriving positive public perception. With new cultural quarters—the Cathedral Quarter, the Gaeltacht Quarter, the Queen’s Quarter and the Titanic Quarter—the former linen and shipbuilding epicenter is a flourishing community that blends industry with culture. Here, where the Titanic was so carefully built, you can see beautifully restored Victorian architecture, indulge retail therapy at a fabulous shopping center, and enjoy the quintessentially Irish experience at the lively waterfront, which is a friendly hub of live music, overflowing pubs and modern art.

 

Day 3

At Sea

Dining on board Celebrity Cruises is an experience for all the senses. Choose casual or upscale, sushi or Italian, inside or alfresco under the stars. With up to a dozen specialty restaurants and an array of bars, lounges, and clubs, every experience is one-of-a-kind. Our menus, crafted by Michelin-starred chef Cornelius Gallagher, are inspired by, and locally sourced from, the amazing regions we visit.

 

Day 4

Reykjavik, Iceland ~ Arrive 1:00 PM

Iceland's capital and largest city is located on the country's southwest coast at the head of Faxafloi Bay. Settled in 877 AD, Reykjavik has grown into an important seaport and center of government and education with theatres, museums and observatories. Interestingly, this modern city still chooses to use water from nearby hot springs to heat all of its buildings.

 

Day 5

Reykjavik, Iceland ~ Depart 3:00 PM

 

Day 6

Akureyri, Iceland ~ 10:30 AM - 6:30 PM

Akureyri, Iceland's second-largest city—affectionately known as the Capital of North Iceland—is one of the country's most important ports and fishing centers. A cool café scene, growing gourmet movement, and bustling nightlife proves Akureyri is more than meets the eye. From fabulous summer festivals fueled by the Midnight Sun to some of the best skiing this side of the arctic circle, this laid back Nordic city is a study in contrasts. Explore stunning snow-capped mountains and fjords or soak up robust folk culture. Whatever you choose, it's sure to be the adventure of a lifetime.
