Included with your cruise
Day 1 - Southampton, United Kingdom, EMBARKATION
The United Kingdom's premier passenger ship port, Southampton was home to the great transatlantic liners of yesteryear. The port serves as your gateway to Southern England’s magnificent historic sites, national landmarks, charming villages as well as the great metropolis of London. Southampton is the ideal starting or ending point for a memorable voyage.
Day 2 - At Sea
Day 3 - Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Rotterdam does innovation and imagination like nowhere else. The Nazi bombardment gutted most, but not all, of the old city. As a result, modern glass skyscrapers stand next to 19th and 18th century buildings. So many modern masterpieces demand your camera’s attention, none more so than the extraordinary tilted Cube Houses. They are simply inspired.
Day 4 - Cruise by Flamborough Head
Day 5 - Cruise by Bass Rock and Isle of May, Anchor at new haven
Day 6 - Inverness, Scotland (from Invergordon)
Soak up the unmistakable Scottish Highlands, shrouded in myth and folklore. Amidst conical hills and verdant glens, seek out Loch Ness and scan its glassy surface for the legendary ‘monster.’ Visit Culloden Moor where Bonnie Prince Charlie was defeated, Cawdor Castle – forever linked with Macbeth – and regional whisky distilleries bearing their own famous names.
Day 7 - Cruise By Isle of Skye
Day 8 - Killybegs, Ireland
Killybegs is a natural deep-water harbour in County Donegal, Ireland’s most remote county. It stands on the rugged northwest coast, where green hills roll inland away from dark cliffs and coves sculpted by the Atlantic waves. This corner of the Emerald Isle makes for a breathtaking call along certain cruises that take you around British waters.
Day 9 - Glasgow, Scotland (from Greenock)
When you cruise to Greenock, think of it as the gateway to some of Scotland’s most exciting cultural cities and perhaps the most breathtaking scenery you will ever experience. As you disembark, you will often be greeted by the stirring sight and sound of a traditional Scottish pipe band in full tartan regalia.
Day 10 - Belfast, Northern Ireland
Belfast, capital of Northern Ireland, enjoys a wonderful setting of high hills, sea lough and river valley. Founded in the 17th century, the city prospered, becoming one of the world’s leading industrial names. Despite its more recent political troubles, Belfast has emerged as a vibrant, alluring destination. Amidst its beautiful Victorian buildings you can shop in stylish boutiques, sip a Guinness in one of its charming old pubs or take a scenic stroll in Barnett Demesne park.
Day 11 - Liverpool, United Kingdom
Liverpool was the former home of Cunard Line. The Cunard Building, the Royal Liver Building, and the Port of Liverpool Building – all on Pier Head – are often described as the city’s ‘Three Graces,’ Liverpool is vibrant and modern with a taste of the 60s. Take a ferry across the Mersey for stunning harbour views or embark on a Magical Mystery Tour commemorating ‘The Beatles,’ the city’s most famous sons.
Day 12 - Dublin, Ireland
The dark waters of the River Liffey swirling beneath the Halfpenny Bridge appear to transport you to a different age, the literary Dublin of Yeats, Shaw, Swift and Wilde. From the smart surroundings of St. Stephen’s Green, down bustling O’Connell Street, to the blarney welcome you'll find waiting in a hundred little bars and restaurants the craic, like the Guinness, is always good in Dublin.
Day 13 - Cruise by South Cornwall
Day 14 - St Peter Port, Guernsey
Fortified against invasion for centuries, Guernsey is dotted with castles and coastal defence forts. During World War II, the Channel Islands were the only part of the United Kingdom occupied by the Germans. This quaint harbour whose narrow, cobbled streets and granite houses rise in tiers on the hillside is actually the isle of Guernsey's capital.
Day 15 - Southampton, United Kingdom

Aboard the queen Elizabeth
Queen Elizabeth evokes the heyday of Hollywood glamour and elegance. Her wood panelling, gleaming chandeliers, marble flooring and beautiful decorative touches exude luxury. Some of the best restaurants at sea, sumptuous lounges and spacious suites and staterooms represent the very best of the Cunard experience.
Queen Elizabeth offers plenty of open deck space to explore. The Garden Lounge, designed to have the feel of a Kew Gardens conservatory, is the perfect place to sit back, relax and soak up the sun. If you enjoy slowing the pace of life down a little, perhaps you’ll sample the spa, enjoy a watercolour painting class or take in a Cunard Insights talk. For something more active, try a fencing class or complete a few laps of the promenade deck.
