Both archipelagos are renowned for their rugged scenery and wildlife; RSPB Sumburgh Head, where various species of bird live and breed amongst sea cliffs and coastal scenes, is a particular highlight to seek out in the Shetlands.

See some of the finest Scottish scenery from your ship; behold the sight of Fingal’s Cave and Dutchman’s Cap, and the landscapes of the Small Isles. Your time in Scotland also includes visits to Invergordon, for tours to legendary Loch Ness, and Leith, the gateway to Edinburgh and its many attractions, from Royal Yacht Britannia to Edinburgh Castle. Enjoy some English delights too; visit Falmouth to enjoy Cornish pasties and cream tea in the town or even tour to the Eden Project, and capture the beauty of the Isles of Scilly, their palm-lined beaches, charming towns and pretty landscapes. What’s more, there’s also a day in Dublin, to sample the ‘craic’ of this famous Irish capital, see its landmarks and of course enjoy a couple of Jameson’s and Guinness at Temple Bar.

Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
