Southampton, England

Southampton is a bustling port city bursting with history, as well as shopping opportunities, great restaurants, and superb pubs. Located on England’s southern coast, the area has a deep connection with WWII, having been used as a staging area for the attack on D-Day. It’s also well-known to be the home port of the Queen Mary 2. Today, the city is largely defined by its universities and retail shopping. The real sightseeing, however, happens when you use this port as a jumping off point for attractions found outside, yet relatively close to the city. For instance, London is but a little over an hour away by train.

St. Peter Port, Channel Islands

Saint Peter Port is 24 square miles unspoiled British isle. Overlooking a picturesque harbor the view is truly inspiring. Stroll along cliffside paths and through the rustic interior. The breathtaking scenery and peaceful ambiance make this a vacationer's paradise.

Cork (Cobh), Ireland

Affectionately referred to as ‘The real capital of Ireland’, Cork is a musical and resilient place where tradition and modernity often meld; where live music and local pride are the order of the day. Navigate Cork's hilly streets and discover the melody of Ireland's most talkative citizenry with their signature gift of gab.

The seaside town of Cobh is located on the south coast of Ireland in County Cork and is considered one of the world’s most noteworthy, natural harbors. For history buffs, Cork is also a great find. Ring the Shandon Bells inside the 300-year old tower of St. Anne’s Church. Admire the French Gothic spires of St. Finbarre’s Cathedral and stroll through 17th-century alleys surrounded by the River Lee. Ireland’s second city is fast becoming one of Europe’s most playful destinations.

You’ll easily find yourself downing a pint of stout in a cozy pub or enjoying hearty Irish favorites at a corner bistro on your Cork cruise. The town also boasts an array of market-source international restaurants serving French, Spanish, and American cuisine. Visit local artisans and witness their skills in the arts of weaving and cutting crystal. Cork is filled with the lore, tradition, and good cheer of Ireland at its best.

Waterford (Dunmore E.), Ireland

Ireland's oldest city, Waterford, was founded by Vikings in 914 A.D. and parts of its ancient walled core still stand. Explore the area’s history and heritage with a visit to the archaeological finds on display at the Waterford Museum of Treasures. The Waterford Crystal factory is another must-see on your Waterford cruise, where craftsmen, glass blowers, cutters and engravers have been crafting elegant crystal creations since 1783.

Another way to come face to face with Waterford’s Viking and Norman past is to head to the Viking Triangle where you’ll find the best museums in all the country. Reginald’s Tower, the oldest standing building in the city that dates back to the 13th century and is the first structure to use mortar in its construction. The tower once served as a prison, an arsenal, and a mint. Almost 300 years of Waterford’s history can be found under the single roof of an old Georgian mansion known as Bishop’s Palace. All sorts of period flatware, furniture and other items can be found here, including a Waterford crystal

Akureyri, Iceland

Akureyri, Iceland is the country’s second-largest city and one of the country’s most important ports and fishing centers. Affectionately known as the Capital of North Iceland, it has a cool café scene, a growing gourmet movement, and a bustling nightlife that proves this city is more than meets the eye.  From fabulous summer festivals fueled by the Midnight Sun, like the Akureyri Summer Arts festival (late June-late August), to some of the best skiing this side of the arctic circle, Akureyri, Iceland is a laid-back Nordic city and a study in contrasts.

Soar into the blue sky to discover Grimsey Island, home to only 92 residents and thousands of sea birds. The city’s Botanical Gardens is famed for its collection of high-latitude plants and well worth a visit. Explore the ancient lava formations of Dimmuborgir and the geothermal landscape of bubbling mud and hissing fumaroles at Namafjall Mountain. The Great Fish Day of Dalvik, on the second Saturday in August, where revelers feast for free on the North Atlantic’s bounty is a paradise for seafood lovers.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Iceland's capital and largest city is located on the country's southwest coast at the head of Faxafloi Bay. Settled in 877 A.D., Reykjavik has grown into an important seaport and center of government and education with theatres, museums and observatories. Interestingly, this modern city still chooses to use water from nearby hot springs to heat all of its buildings.

And you’ll find on your cruise to Reykjavik that the culinary scene is eclectic and awesome. The seafood is amazing just about anywhere throughout the city and traditional Nordic salt cod or fish stews are readily available. But there is no shortage of international culinary favorites like French and all sorts of new Nordic fusion-style options as well. Explore the city’s artistic boutiques for authentic Icelandic souvenirs and trinkets, like music boxes, unique clothing, driftwood furniture and fish-skin handbags.

Glasgow (Greenock), Scotland

Greenock is your gateway to Glasgow. Only an hour away by train, Scotland's largest city, Glasgow, displays a striking mix of architectural styles and plenty of Scottish character. At first glance, Glasgow, Scotland presents a gothic beauty that’s certainly reason enough to visit on its own. What lies inside these sober Victorian façades is a city brewing with an artistic energy, five-star restaurants, ale soaked local pubs, and fashion-forward shops. Indoors, it offers a diverse lineup of museums, art galleries, eateries, and shops—some of the best outside London—with all the latest trends and some quirky second-hand gems.
