If you like your cruise to be formal, dressy and upmarket then Cunard could be perfect for you. Their three ships with their distinctive look, offer quality and class and their service matches the same standard. Their white glove service high tea is one of the true highlights of ocean cruising overall and an experience not to miss.

Full Itinerary

Day 1: Southampton

Begin your cruise in Southampton

Day 2 & 3: At Sea

Day 4: Lerwick, Scotland

The most northerly point of the British Isles, little Lerwick can compete with the world’s most memorable locations on any cruise. The only town and capital of the Shetland Isles, Lerwick lies 100 miles from mainland Scotland and is nearer to Norway. Originally given as a gift in a Danish Princess’s dowry in the mid 1400s, Shetland has kept much of its Scandinavian feel to this day. Discover Neolithic archaeological sites, Iron Age artefacts and mysterious standing stones.

Day 5: At Sea

Day 6: Akureyri, Iceland

Established in the mid-17th century, Akureyri is home to Iceland’s largest fishing company and its biggest shipyard. Viking sagas, spectacular fjords, snow-capped mountains... Iceland’s ‘Capital of the North’ is also surprisingly mild and the so-called Green Town is made for those long summer days.

Day 7: Isafjordur, Iceland

Keep your binoculars handy. Iceland’s western fjords are prime whale watching waters and, if your luck’s in, you may just spot a telltale spout of water.

Day 8 & 9: Reykjavik, Iceland

A mass of brightly coloured corrugated iron roofs is a familiar sight here in the world’s most northern capital city. Experience the incredible views of the Golden Waterfall and wonder at the spouting geysers. Join in a national pastime – shopping! Designer labels, local wool, gourmet treats, even a flea market, it’s all right here.

Day 10 & 11: At Sea

Day 12: Glasgow, Scotland (from Greenock)

When you cruise to Greenock, think of it as the gateway to some of Scotland’s most exciting cultural cities and perhaps the most breathtaking scenery you will ever experience. As you disembark, you will often be greeted by the stirring sight and sound of a traditional Scottish pipe band in full tartan regalia.

Day 13: Dublin, Ireland

The dark waters of the River Liffey swirling beneath the Halfpenny Bridge appear to transport you to a different age, the literary Dublin of Yeats, Shaw, Swift and Wilde. From the smart surroundings of St. Stephen’s Green, down bustling O’Connell Street, to the blarney welcome you'll find waiting in a hundred little bars and restaurants the craic, like the Guinness, is always good in Dublin.
