Spring is the ideal time to take a British Isles Discovery cruise. The arrival of Spring blooms, wildlife and the warmer weather paint the UK in a blanket of bluebells, daffodils and fields of lambs. This is a fantastic opportunity to really appreciate some of the wonderful scenery, fascinating history and ancient cultures of the British Isles.
Highlights of the British Isles Discovery & River Seine cruise include; discovering picturesque harbours such as Oban which means ‘little bay’, historic sites such as the Neolithic standing stones of Skara Brae in the Orkney Islands and the highlights of Ireland.
From Belfast passengers can take an excursion to Giant’s causeway and from Cobh explore the city of Cork and the legendary Blarney Castle. Cruising the beautiful River Seine to Rouen, ‘city of a hundred spires’, and a call in Honfleur adds a little French flair to complete this delightful cruise.
For nature lovers, a call in Amsterdam allows the opportunity to visit the Keukenhof Gardens where an abundance of colour and an impressive selection of flowers in bloom will herald the arrival of Spring in style. In Oban, there is the opportunity to take an excursion with the chance to see a range of wildlife including whales, porpoise, dolphins, basking sharks, otter, golden and white-tailed sea eagles. In Rouen, passengers have the opportunity to take an excursion to Claude Monet’s house and Gardens which regularly featured in his colourful paintings.
