About the ports

London
Long live the Queen, they say. And rightfully so. You would be hard-pressed to find any Londoner, much less her Majesty, willing to leave a city as beautiful and grand as London. Whether visiting Westminster Abbey or St. Paul's Cathedral, the regal city of London is one destination you will not soon forget.

Le Harve, France
Not just history buffs but everyone will appreciate this opportunity to visit the sites of the Allied Landing of 1944 and to pay homage to the brave soldiers who fought and died on French soil.

You will pass over the "Pont de Normandie," the bridge crossing the mouth of the River Seine, as you depart Le Havre and make your 2.50-hour drive through the fertile dairy countryside of Normandy. We will continue to the City of Caen, where you will visit the Caen Memorial Museum. With its audio/visual effects and exhibits, you will trace the course of history from the causes of the two World Wars, to the Normandy landing and the collapse of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan. A full buffet lunch will be served at the memorial.

After lunch, you will drive along the coast, and stop at Pointe du Hoc where three companies of Second Ranger Battalion climbed the 100-foot cliffs on D-Day to capture this strategic position. Continuing along the coast, a photo stop will be made at Omaha Beach. There, at dawn on June 6, 1944, one of the first two bridgeheads of landing American troops was established. You will visit the American Cemetery of Colleville located near Omaha Beach in the village of Saint Laurent. The cemetery stands as a witness to the sacrifices made along these shores. You will see the American Memorial and grounds of the cemetery dedicated to those soldiers who fought and died on the beaches. Then, you will ride back to the ship.

St. Peter Port, Channel Islands
Saint Peter Port is 24 square miles unspoiled British isle. Overlooking a picturesque harbor the view is truly inspiring. The breathtaking scenery and peaceful ambiance make this a unique paradise.

Cobh, Ireland
Crossing the River Lee will take you onto a country road, tree and hedge-lined, rural and peaceful. Continue through agricultural communities, past small brightly painted houses with colorful gardens, and over stone bridges towards the village of Blarney. Blarney has remained one of the most legendary places in Ireland, nestled in breathtaking scenery and rich in folklore, nostalgia and legend. You will have time in the village, facing a broad expanse of Green and Parkland, which leads towards the Castle. You can browse amongst the array of small gift and craft shops, or visit Blarney Woollen Mill, famous for its array of Irish sourced goods gathered together under the rambling roofs of the Old Mill. Shopping there is an experience not to be missed.

Dublin
The capital city of Ireland, Dublin is filled with history and unique artisanship. From architecture, to fine crystal and of course Guinness.

Liverpool
You will see the contrasting styles of Liverpool’s two great cathedrals, the Roman Catholic Metropolitan and the Cathedral of Christ the King. Its giant wig-wham style design is splendidly photogenic and the building is undoubtedly the major modern architectural attraction of the city. This unusual cathedral is topped by a spiked lantern tower containing 25,000 pieces of stained glass.

We will also visit the unique village of Port Sunlight, a picturesque 19th century garden village built by William Hesketh Lever for the workers of his soap factory. We visit the Sunlight Vision Museum, and see the exhibition telling the fascinating history of the village - the factors which led up to its creation and how it grew into one of the finest industrial villages in the world.

Greenock, Scotland
Cross the impressive Erskine Bridge for a photo stop at Dumbarton Rock. You will continue along to Loch Lomond - The beautiful inland loch, known as the Queen of Scottish lakes is the largest in Great Britain. Next, stop at the village of Luss with its flower-bedecked cottages and stroll through the village to the water's edge or browse stocked gift shops. From Luss, the loch is your constant companion as you journey further northwards where your route takes you along a steadily climbing scenic road to the summit viewpoint of 'Rest and Be Thankful,' where you make a photo stop to enjoy the panoramic views. Returning, enjoy the atmospheric scenery of loch, glens and peaks slips as you travel around the head of Holy Loch and into Hunter's Quay and the terminal of Western Ferries. The 20-minute crossing of the Firth of Clyde will take you to the Clyde-side town of Gourock. From there you will follow the coastal road returning to Greenock.

Holyhead, Wales
Holyhead is the largest town on the island of Anglesey and is perhaps known best for being a busy ferry port. However, visitors should also note that the town has a number of interesting attractions and is a bustling shopping and visitor’s area in its own right.
