Cultural journeys and expeditions

Cruise Ireland and England aboard a luxury small ship, taking you to major cities as well as captivating islands off the beaten path... enjoy isles of delight... explore the Isle of Man from coastline to fairy legends... choose between the Isles of Scilly, each with their own secrets to discover... and more awaits...

Discover the treasures of the British and Irish Isles and their unique cultural mix of Celtic, Norse and British influences. Most days you'll have a choice of sightseeing excursion; they include: A visit to historic Belfast, where the Titanic was built, and experience the compelling interactive exhibits at the Titanic Experience. Exploring remote Guernsey, a resort island occupied by the Germans during World War II, where military installations, bunkers, and an observation tower still stand amid charming villages and beach hotels. On the Isles of Scilly, off the Cornish peninsula, discover sparsely populated islands of white beaches, fields of flowers, and historic sites that offer an enchanting world apart – on St. Mary’s you’ll visit Hugh Town and see Star Castle, that once defended the island from Spanish invaders and pirates. Immerse yourself in the Irish charms of colorful Cork and Kinsale; enjoy Liverpool, “England’s finest Victorian city,” and its history as home of the Beatles and the "British Invasion." From Portsmouth, England’s premier naval city, head to Henry VIII's Hampton Court Palace, then on to London for two nights in the heart of the city. Your ship is small enough to provide a truly intimate experience with luxury amenities including restaurants, lounges, bars, fitness center, and staterooms with ocean views.

Discovering the Isle of Man

Exploring the tiny nation of the Isle of Man

Visiting the tiny Isle of Man in the Irish Sea, you can follow its Celtic and Viking heritage trail through picturesque villages, passing cliffs, glens, and wild moors to Fairy Bridge. Keep a lookout for the island’s famed tail-free Manx cats – and its legendary “little people” (a.k.a. fairies)! Or ride a steam train on a narrow gauge railway to Castletown, checking out the medieval castle that gave the town its name; take the Victorian Manx Electric Railway to high cliffs with breathtaking views, then Snaefell Mountain Railway to the highest point on the island; or go on a guided hike from the village of Cregneash to the Calf of Man to meet the resident seals and birds. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to fall in love with this wonderful island, its unique history and way of life.

The Langham, London

Europe's first Grand Hotel... reimagined for the 21st Century

With a history of delighting guests and providing personalized service since its opening in 1865, The Langham, London is truly an icon in the British capital. With the recent addition of deluxe suites, a British tavern, The Wigmore and a new spa, Chuan Body + Soul, the reimagining of Europe’s first Grand Hotel is ever evolving.

The isles were all unique and enjoyable to see. Liverpool and the Beatles Experience helped me to relive my youth.
