Springtime in Scotland

Join Astoria to see some of Scotland's most breathtaking scenery and visit three vibrant Irish cities on this Easter cruise. Call first in Belfast, where you'll have a chance to explore the thriving city and the regenerated Titanic Quarter. You’ll then head to three delightful Scottish visits, beginning in Stornoway on the beautiful Hebridean Isle of Lewis, before cruising south to spend Good Friday in splendid, Victorian Oban in its sheltered west coast bay, and Easter Saturday in Fort William, in the shadow of Ben Nevis.

A Bank Holiday Monday call in Dublin, with the chance to join the throng in Grafton and O’Connell streets and perhaps to visit Trinity College, is followed by two more Irish calls. Explore the bustling food-lovers city of Cork, and perhaps complete your scenic cruise by joining an optional excursion to the Ring of Kerry from the pretty harbour town of Bantry, on legendary Bantry Bay.
