In alliance with Smithsonian Journeys.

This cruise is part of a collection of PONANT voyages that are specially tailored for English-speaking travellers who want to engage with the world. In addition to the usual elements of the PONANT experience, the listed price for these voyages includes transfers to and from the ship, talks and discussions aboard ship by world class experts, and a shore excursion or activity in each port of call that encourages guests to embrace the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of the local environment and culture. 

Join us for this 9-day cruise aboard Le Dumont-d'Urville exploring the rich history and culture that thrives on either side of the Irish Sea. 

Begin with a night aboard ship docked near London Bridge, then set sail in the early morning down the Thames to discover historic Dover Castle, perched high on the emblematic White Cliffs, and perhaps visit the nearby UNESCO Heritage site of Canterbury Cathedral. 

Enjoy a morning on the Isle of Wight visiting Osborne House, Queen Victoria's favourite residence, before a relaxing afternoon cruising along the shores of the English Channel. Arrive the following day some 30 miles off the southwest coast of Cornwall in the Isles of Scilly, where you visit the world-famous Tresco Gardens. 

Crossing the Irish Sea, you call in Kinsale, Ireland, your gateway to proudly Irish Cork and its iconic Jameson Distillery. Holyhead, Wales, on the Isle of Anglesey, is where you may visit medieval Caernarfon Castle, built in the late 13th century by Edward I as the architectural capstone to the English conquest of Wales, or you may choose to explore the National Trust's Bodnant Garden. 

Belfast, Northern Ireland's dynamic capital, is home to Titanic Belfast, a state-of-the-art museum on the site of the yard where the ill-fated ship was built. It is also your opportunity to experience the spectacular unspoiled scenery of the Antrim Coast and the famed Giant’s Causeway of over 40,000 interlocking, hexagonal columns, formed by the cooling of molten lava some six million years ago. 

Your final full day is spent exploring the fabled Hebrides, beginning with the mystical abbey of the Isle of Iona, home to the first Christian settlement in Scotland. Next, you will proceed to Duart Castle, ancestral home of Clan Maclean on the Isle of Mull, and ending in the charming fishing port of Tobermory, whose distillery produces a renowned single malt scotch whisky. 

Your voyage comes to an end in Glasgow, Scotland's modern cultural capital.
