Full Itinerary

Day One

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

Day Two

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

Day Three

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

Day Four

Today you'll anchor off Stornoway, capital of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides. Beautiful and unspoilt, these ancient islands have been inhabited for over 6,000 years. Wander through the town, or take an optional excursion to Callanish's famous Standing Stones, thought to be nearly 4,000 years old.

Day Five

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 Six

Astoria's call in Belfast brings chances to explore both this unique city - where the gleaming Titanic Quarter is a must-see attraction - and the scenic Antrim countryside beyond.

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

Astoria arrives in Cork's long, narrow Cobh harbour this morning. A shore excursion here offers you the chance to discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland. You might choose to head into the rolling countryside to fashionable Kinsale, famed for its fine food and sea-fishing, or to visit famous Blarney Castle, just north of the city.

Day Nine

This morning finds us in the Isles of Scilly. You'll have 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.
