Day One: Depart from Portsmouth
Join Astoria before she begins her journey east from Portsmouth this afternoon. As you skirt the coast, you'll have time to settle in to your cabin, and to enjoy the ship's facilities and excellent five-course dining.
Day Two: At sea
Spend today relaxing as Astoria cruises north. Get to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.
Day Three: Hull
As Astoria arrives in Hull this morning, you'll say goodbye to some of your fellow voyagers and welcome new friends aboard before continuing your cruise.
Day Four: At sea
Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.
Day Five: Kirkwall
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 Six: Stornoway
Astoria will anchor off Stornoway, the capital of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, today. These unspoiled islands have been inhabited for over 6,000 years. Wander through the town, or take the optional excursion to Callanish’s mysterious Standing Stones, thought to be nearly 4,000 years old.
Day Seven: Tobermory
The small town of Tobermory on the beautiful island of Mull, with its picturesque waterfront of brightly painted buildings, is a delightful place to explore, as is nearby Duart Castle, the famous seat of Clan Maclean.
Day Eight: Belfast
Early this morning, Astoria arrives in historic Belfast. Explore the city centre, visit the new Titanic Quarter developments that pay homage to the ill-fated vessel, or join an optional excursion to the vast ’stone staircase’ of the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim Coast beyond.
Day Nine: Dublin
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 10: St Mary's
This morning finds us in the Isles of Scilly. Astoria anchors here in sheltered waters, 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 11: St Peter Port
Guernsey's St Peter Port welcomes Astoria 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.

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