Cruises around the British Isles

A British Isles cruise will allow you to explore many parts of the region that you might otherwise never see. Did you know Scotland is surrounded by more than 600 islands and the best way to discover them is on the water? Britain's crumbling castles, rolling countryside and bustling cities date back millennia, making it a great island to explore. From royal palaces, to World Heritage sites, stunning scenic countryside to wild moorland, once you've done this cruise, you'll understand why it's named Great Britain.

Main ports of call include England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. However, many itineraries also take you into Europe. Check out the primary ports of call below, pick your cruise from our key offers and then give us a call to start your adventure around Great Britain.

  • Dover (Kent)x Close

    This coastal town has seen its fair share of battles. The legendary White Cliffs have witnessed many an army, and Dover Castle has faced invasions from the Romans and French to name a few. It's located around 80 miles from London, so if you do have some free time on your cruise then a trip to the capital is a must. Take in the amazing architecture of Westminster Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament; visit the Queen's residency, Buckingham Palace; or take a trip on the London Eye for panoramic views of the capital's skyline and beyond. If you're free in the evening then a trip to the West End, including Covent Garden and Leicester Square, has to be on the itinerary.
