Full Itinerary

Day One

Board Astoria in Tilbury today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.

Day Two

Spend the day exploring Amsterdam's canals, flower markets and museums. Wander the cobbled streets, or take to the water on a canal cruise.

Day Three

Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.

Day Four

Today Astoria arrives in Kirkwall, Orkney's historic capital. Wander the streets and marvel at magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, or join an excursion to fabled Scapa Flow, Churchill's famous Barriers or the Italian Chapel.

Day Five

The Isle of Skye is a wonderful place to explore. Spend the day in picturesque Portree, with its quayside fish 'n' chip shops, or join an excursion and head north, past the Old Man of Storr, to Duntum's Museum of Island Life; west to brooding Dunvegan Castle; south past the spectacular Cuillins; or even across the bridge to mainland Scotland.

Day Six

The small town of Tobermory on the beautiful island of Mull, with its picturesque, multi-coloured houses encircling the waterfront, is a delightful place to explore, as is nearby Duart Castle, the famous seat of Clan Maclean.

Day Seven

Today Astoria arrives in Dublin. This great city of culture, once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift, is one of Europe's most engaging capitals. Grafton and O'Connell Streets are popular with visitors, as are the city's famous bars and pubs, cafes and coffee shops.

Day Eight

Holyhead on Anglesey, at the northwest tip of Wales, offers access to stunning countryside, fine beaches, and welcoming pubs. The island is also home to historic Beaumaris Castle, and to one of the most photographed railway signs in the world - the 58-lettered 'Llanfair P.G.'.

Day Nine

This morning finds us in the Isles of Scilly. Astoria anchors here in, giving you the opportunity to go ashore to explore Hugh Town on St Mary's, the flower-strewn byways beyond, and stunning Tresco, where the famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest subtropical plant collection.

Day 10

Guernsey's St Peter Port welcomes us this morning. See 800-year-old Castle Cornet, which guards the entrance to the harbour, wander the cobbled central quarter and make the most of the island's tax-free shopping.

Day 11

Crossing the Channel completely, our next port of call is Honfleur at the mouth of the Seine. Wander the streets behind the pretty harbour, or perhaps join an optional excursion to Monet's delightful house and gardens at Giverny.

Day 12

Bid farewell to Astoria and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.

ERIC

Poole, Dorset Couple
This was our first cruise on this ship and we were very pleased with it. The accommodation was excellent, the food superb and varied and the staff very attentive and friendly. We only took advantage of 2 pre-chosen shore excursions; one to the Scilly isles was very informative, the other to Dublin was disappointing. However we did our own thing on all other ports of call. We were disappointed that the visit to Guernsey had to be cancelled but understand the danger of transferring to a tender in very rough sea conditions. We have already booked another cruise on the Astoria.

Hollingbourne Couple
The ports of call were interesting and were the main reason for the holiday. THe ship was clean and apparently well maintained although our small cabin suffered from vibration which was a complaint from other passengers. The food was obviously prepared to a budget and we did not starve. The entertainment was OK but there were no talks about the ports that we were to visit which was a feature on other cruise lines. The drinks prices were reasonable and it was necessary to drink a lot to make the "all inclusive" deal of £17 per day worthwhile. The Captain and officers could have pointed out places that we were passing and could have explained other issues as to why it took an hour to berth at Kirkwall.

A most enjoyable cruise. The impending change to sailing out of Le Harve seems to have had an effect of staff moral and discipline. They were not as enthusiastic or polished as on previous cruises. The ship has real soul and is an ideal size.

Couple
unfortuneately I suffered from motion sickness on the Astoria.
there was a lot of what I call rocking and rolling.

Travelling around the british isles maybe that s what you get or
else it was because it was a very small ship

also trying to sleep at night was dreadful the noise of the engines.

Plus the size of the cabin was very small.we had to wait for each other to get ready or else we continually collided.
Bathroom was brilliant with a bath but safety handles were too high to use for us shorter mortals so used shower

entertainment was good but not a lot of other things to do particularly after show
continuous classical music in main lounge was not everyone s cup of tea
quiz s etc good
all in all I prefer a bigger ship with more lounges choice of dining etc

only main dining room and lotus grill,i found service in Lotus grill excellent so chose to have breakfasts and lunches there
Good choice of main meals but desserts very similar
I missed a number of meals due to motion sickness but staff were helpful
