The popular 10-night British Isles & Cities Discovery itinerary is sold out sailing from London Tilbury, but passengers can take an overnight coach from London Tilbury and board Columbus in Rotterdam to join the cruise. The Coach will take passengers from London Tilbury to join Columbus in Rotterdam and sail to Kirkwall (Orkney Islands), Tobermory (Isle of Mull), Belfast, Dublin, St Mary’s (Isles of Scilly), St Peter Port (Guernsey), Honfleur (France) returning to London Tilbury.
Highlights of the British Isles & Cities Discovery cruise include experiencing the scenic splendour of dramatic Scottish islands contrasting with fascinating highlights of the Emerald Isle. With a full programme of optional excursions, passengers can explore Skara Brae, a 5,000-year-old Neolithic village in the Orkney Islands, the beautiful scenery of the Isle of Mull on a Panoramic tour and the spectacular Giant’s causeway from Belfast. This cruise offers history, heritage and beauty – plus a call in Honfleur (France) adds a continental flavour.
The 15-night Canary Islands & Madeira cruise will sail south to warmer climates from Rotterdam. A coach will take passengers from London Tilbury on Wednesday 16 October to join Columbus in Rotterdam and sail to Gibraltar, Arrecife (Lanzarote), Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Tenerife), Funchal (Madeira), Lisbon (Portugal) returning to London Tilbury.
This voyage to islands in the sun will take passengers to four contrasting Atlantic Islands on a wonderful autumn escape south to warmer climes. Highlights of the Canary Islands & Madeira itinerary include calling at beautiful Madeira and the ever-popular Canary Islands of Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Tenerife. Calls in Gibraltar and Lisbon will provide opportunities to take an excursion to experience the history and the culture of these fascinating places, for example a tour of the Rock of Gibraltar or exploring Lisbon’s famous sights by Tuk-Tuk.
