Reasons to visit the British Isles on a cruise holiday

Breathtaking Coastlines

The rugged coastlines, green pastures and ancient folklore of Ireland and beyond await you on a cruise around the British Isles. St Peter Ports Island will seduce you with its multitude of gorgeous bays ranging from long, whilst Invergordon is the perfect place to try to catch a glimpse of the elusive Loch Ness monster in nearby Inverness.

Wild Landscapes

Scotland’s wild landscape is made up of castles, glacial valleys, mountains and lochs. Stornoway, the main town on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides, is renowned for its unspoilt natural beauty and stunning scenery of mountains, moorland and golden beaches. The natural beauty and archaeological wonders of the Orkney Islands will astound and enthral you, too.

Fascinating History

For history lovers, St Peter Port is a dream. Discover Castle Cornet, an 800-year-old fortress that guards the harbour, as well as museums dedicated to the German occupation of Guernsey in the Second World War. You will also be enchanted by the fine Georgian and Regency houses, tumbling terraced gardens, winding streets and hidden leafy alleyways.
