British Isles Cruises
Take a detour from the rest of Europe and see the British Isles by sea on board selected Pullmantur Cruises. From the White Cliffs of Dover to the bizarre Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, you will be able to explore just a few of the highlights that Great Britain and Ireland have to offer.
Many cruises starting in Spain, Portugal or Calais will take you to Dover and arguably the best way to see this historic port town is from the sea. Stand in awe as you approach the glistening white cliffs which dominate England’s south eastern coastline. This town is guarded by a 2,000 year old historical castle known as the “Key to England” which features underground tunnels, built into the chalk and these were where the Dunkirk evacuation was planned.
On your way to Iceland on board the Eyjafjallajökull Cruise; you will be able to visit a number of British ports in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Shortly after embarking from Calais, you will arrive in Falmouth, Cornwall, which features the third largest deep-water harbour in the world – attracting many sailing enthusiasts. Here you can admire the charm of the Cornish region and indulge in traditional cream tea and fresh seafood.
Scotland has so much to offer including a friendly, warm welcome; beautiful scenery; and, of course, the legendary Loch Ness ‘monster’. Ullapool, in the Scottish Highlands, has become an ideal holiday centre and offers a wide selection of amenities including boat hire and golf. As well as stunning scenery, the town also boasts a strong reputation as a centre for music, art and drama.
The capital city of Northern Ireland, Belfast, was completely transformed by the industrial revolution and is lined with shipyards. The city’s sad and violent history is reflected in the streets, but Belfast seen a resurgence in tourism in the 21st century and you can explore the many grand buildings or visit the geological wonder that is Giant’s Causeway.
