French Cities, Celtic History & Culture
Join us aboard Marco Polo for a delightful spring cruise round the UK from Bristol to Portsmouth. Sail across the the Channel to Normandy, and through the upper reaches of the River Seine to Rouen and Honfleur. Then discover astonishing island scenery and tiny, perfect ports on Orkney, Shetland, Mull and the Isle of Lewis, and the heather-clad glens of the Highlands as Marco Polo anchors in the great natural harbour of Invergordon.
Join an optional shore excursion in Newhaven for the chance to visit Edinburgh. Uncover Belfast's long and complex history, and see the world-famous exhibitions of the Titanic Quarter, and spend a day wandering Dublin's Grafton and O’Connell Streets and Temple Bar, soaking up the culture in the city's museums, pubs and bars. Visit Cork, southern Ireland's historic centre of commerce, culture and fine food, and cruise around the southern tip of Ireland to call in Bantry and to explore the glorious coastal scenery of the Ring of Kerry.
