Day 2 - At Sea

Day 3 - Invergordon (Scotland)
On the beautiful Cromarty Firth, here is your gateway to the Scottish Highlands with its dramatic history and spectacular scenery. Haunting lochs and romantic castles enchant the visitor whilst the eerie, windswept Culloden Battlefield and some distinguished distilleries, most notably Glenmorangie, all vie for your attention.
Day 4 - Stornoway (Outer Hebridies)
Having cruised around the northern tip of the British Isles, you reach Stornoway, the only town on Lewis, the most northerly of the Outer Hebrides. This history-rich outpost offers a tremendous diversity of interests including the pre-historic Callanish Standing Stones, fabulous coastlines, beaches and wildlife.
Day 5 - Tobermory (Isle of Mull)
Genteel describes the lovely Georgian harbourfront architecture of the little town of Tobermory, whilst rugged is a more apt description for the wild moorland and mountainous interior of the Isle of Mull. Take a trip on the Mull Railway or visit tiny traffic-free Iona, where St Columba first brought Christianity in 563 AD.
Day 6 - Dublin (Ireland)
The capital of the Emerald Isle, with its images of ancient Kings, magical folklore and that essential Irish hospitality. From Trinity College to stylish O'Connell Street, Dublin offers a real sense of history, wonderful restaurants, cafés and of course, bars. Enjoy the craic and perhaps an expertly served pint of Guinness.
Day 7 - St Mary's (Isles of Scilly)
Dropping anchor off Hugh Town, the main town of the Isles of Scilly, affords the chance to visit two of this unique cluster of islands, lying 28 miles south west of Land's End. St. Mary's is the largest at just six square miles, while the effects of the sub-tropical climate are spectacularly evident in the blaze of colour at Tresco's renowned Abbey Gardens.
Day 8 - St Peter Port (Guernsey)
The cobbled streets and relaxed style of Guernsey?s picturesque main town introduce you to the unique Channel Islands. Certainly more Anglo than French, but with enough ?je ne sais quoi? to make you think otherwise. Guernsey has a captivating island history, wonderful beaches, miles of coastal walks and tax-free shopping for the less energetic!
Day 9 - Honfleur (France)
This pretty little town, at the mouth of the River Seine, makes a perfect finale to a spectacular cruise. The old harbour and marina are just delightful and the narrow streets and alleys of the old quarter are little changed since French medieval times. Claude Monet's famous garden at Givenchy, the Normandy Landings beaches and even the Bayeux Tapestry are all within reach.
Day 10 - London Tilbury (UK)
Disembark Marco Polo in Tilbury.
