Take a British Isles Cruise This Year

In case you're wondering, the British Isles consist of Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands. These islands comprise the geographic entity known as the British Isles. The British Isles actually make up an archipelago in northwestern Europe. Britain and Ireland are the two largest islands, and there are several small islands in the archipelago as well.

If you're one of those people who is enchanted by British, Irish, or Scottish history, a British Isles cruise is perfect for you. You might consider an eleven or twelve day luxury cruise with stops in Britain, Scotland, Ireland, and even France. You can even stay overnight in Edinburgh and visit Edinburgh Castle. Take a full day to explore historic Dublin--it's worth it. You can search for the Loch Ness monster or see the White Cliffs of Dover from the deck of your ship.

British Isles Cruise Options

For under $2,000, you can select any one of several exciting cruises through the British Isles. Pick the Western Isles and see gothic cathedrals, tartan plaids, and Waterford Crystal. Explore land dotted with sod-covered cottages. You can check out major cities steeped in history or take a stroll through tiny villages and hamlets where life is much the same as it was centuries ago.

Enjoy the pomp and classic dignity of London Town and taste the pubs of Dublin. Play the legendary golf courses of Scotland, where golf was born. Your luxury British Isles trip may include time to wander over the greenest hills in the world, in Ireland. You can even choose to sail on a smaller ship with larger staterooms, a higher ratio of employees to guests, and even more luxury than you can find on a large cruise ship.
