The British Isles

 

Cunard Line® on the Queen Victoria®

June 4 - 16, 2019
13 Days / 12 Nights

(Roundtrip from Southampton)

 

Day 1

Southampton, United Kingdom

The United Kingdom's premier passenger ship port, Southampton was home to the great transatlantic liners of yesteryear. The port serves as your gateway to Southern England’s magnificent historic sites, national landmarks, charming villages as well as the great metropolis of London. Southampton is the ideal starting or ending point for a memorable voyage.

 

Day 2

At Sea

Queen Mary 2 is wonderfully grand. Illuminations is a luxury 3D cinema, a planetarium and a classical music venue. If you fancy a little shopping, fine boutiques centred around the ship’s magnificent Grand Lobby, provide a range of products from tempting souvenirs and gifts to exquisite jewellery and designer clothing.

 

Day 3

Glasgow, Scotland (from Greenock)

When you cruise to Greenock, think of it as the gateway to some of Scotland’s most exciting cultural cities and perhaps the most breathtaking scenery you will ever experience. As you disembark, you will often be greeted by the stirring sight and sound of a traditional Scottish pipe band in full tartan regalia.

 

Day 4

Oban, Scotland

Oban is a town and port in western Scotland. It’s a gateway to the Hebridean islands. The Colosseum-like McCaig’s Tower overlooks Oban Bay. Seafood eateries cluster by the harbour. Outside town is the ruined Dunollie Castle, once the seat of Clan MacDougall. The nearby house museum, from 1745, explores clan and local history. On Loch Creran, the Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary has an aquarium and rescue centre.

 

Day 5

Isle Of Skye Sail By

The Isle of Skye, connected to Scotland's northwest coast by bridge, is known for its rugged landscapes, picturesque fishing villages and medieval castles. The largest island in the Inner Hebrides archipelago, it has an indented coastline of peninsulas and narrow lochs, radiating out from a mountainous interior. The town of Portree, a base for exploring the island, features harbourside pubs and boutiques.

 

Day 6

Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

Kirkwall is the main settlement of the Northern Isles and capital of Orkney, an archipelago in the north of Scotland, as well as the largest island settlement in Scotland.

 

Day 7

At Sea

If anything sums up the freedom of your cruise, it is the array of places to eat, from healthy to hearty, from light bites to haute cuisine. The only challenge is deciding what to order, when so much catches the eye.

 

Day 8

Dublin, Ireland

Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. Its historic buildings include Dublin Castle, dating to the 13th century, and imposing St Patrick’s Cathedral, founded in 1191. City parks include landscaped St Stephen’s Green and huge Phoenix Park, containing Dublin Zoo. The National Museum of Ireland explores Irish heritage and culture.

 

Day 9

Liverpool, United Kingdom

Liverpool was the former home of Cunard Line. The Cunard Building, the Royal Liver Building, and the Port of Liverpool Building – all on Pier Head – are often described as the city’s ‘Three Graces,’ Liverpool is vibrant and modern with a taste of the 60s. Take a ferry across the Mersey for stunning harbour views or embark on a Magical Mystery Tour commemorating ‘The Beatles,’ the city’s most famous sons.

 

Day 10

Cork, Ireland (from Cobh)

Cork, just inland from Ireland’s southwest coast, is a university city with its centre on an island in the River Lee, connected to the sea by Cork Harbour. The castlelike 1824 Cork City Gaol once held prisoners bound for Australia, and exhibitions relay the building’s history. The hilltop steeple of 18th-century Shandon Church (officially the Church of Saint Anne) is a symbol of the city.

 

Day 11

At Sea

If anything sums up the freedom of your cruise, it is the array of places to eat, from healthy to hearty, from light bites to haute cuisine. The only challenge is deciding what to order, when so much catches the eye.

 

Day 12

St. Peter Port, Guernsey

Saint Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey as well as the main port. The population in 2014 was 18,207. In Guernésiais and in French, historically the official language of Guernsey, the name of the town and its surrounding parish is St Pierre Port.
