Ports of Call
Dover (London), England (Embark and Debark) - "Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." Samuel Johnson's famous words are as true today as when he spoke them. A visitor to London could fill a month with fascinating people, art, music, late-night dancing, fabulous shopping, an endless array of pubs and first rate meals. Tourists should take in Victoria Station, the beauty of Westminster Abbey, Parliament, and the pomp of Buckingham Palace. And then there are the "Elgin Marbles" at the British Museum and the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London. Or visit Sherlock Holmes' HQ on Baker Street (you know the address). After all that, make what might be the most important stop of all: grab a pint at one of the many corner pubs that's been hosting revelers since before America was a nation. Definitely a place to "take in," not just "pass through."

From London, you'll transfer to Dover to board your ship and start your cruise conference.
Pre and Post-Cruise Hotel Packages in London
Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Here in Amsterdam, you can decide whether the real masterpieces are the gabled houses that flank graceful canals, or the van Goghs, Rembrandts and Vermeers that cover the walls of the city's grand museums.
Belfast, Northern Ireland - So much of Ireland's political history is tied up in Belfast that many visitors are surprised to find that it is also a modern city, blending old and new effortlessly as the troubles of its pass fade into history. A day trip away are the Giants' Causeway (a series of stone pillars that extends to Scotland) and the spectacular Antrim coast.
Douglas, Isle of Man - Since 1863, Douglas has been the capital of the Isle of Man and its Viking heritage is manifest in the harbor. Gabled buildings with arched windows face wooden boats and tall-masted sailing vessels, and the promenade stretches a full two miles. As you travel, do two things—first, bear in mind that this is the home of the world-famous TT motorcycle race and some of the locals always drive as if in training; and second, stop to pet the island's indigenous tailless cat.
Dublin, Ireland - Dublin, the fair city, invites you to wander the streets trod by Joyce, Yeats and Oscar Wilde. Drop in at pubs with mahogany bars and stained glass. In the Trinity College Library, feast your eyes on the illuminated 9th-century Book of Kells. Sample the world's most famous stout at the original Guinness Brewery. And, of course, there are plenty of shopping opportunities — from a souvenir shillelagh to Waterford crystal.
Dunmore East (Waterford), Ireland - In this city, founded in 853 by the Vikings, the attraction is clearly the crystal factory. Follow all stages of production, observing how sand, lead and potash are transformed by fire into sparkling crystal.
Guernsey, Channel Islands - - Floating just off the Normandy coast, this bucolic isle is famous throughout the world for its Guernsey cattle. Be easy here: stroll fields of bluebells, watch fishing boats bob in St. Peter Port harbor.
Invergordon, Scotland - The skirl of Highland bagpipes calls you ashore. Go in search of your clan tartan, and "Nessie," the spurious monster often sighted in Loch Ness.
Kirkwall, Orkney Islands - Nestled among the 70 Orkney islands at the northern tip of Scotland lies Kirkwall. Once owned by Norway, the Orkney Islands were given to Scotland as part of a princess's dowry! Norwegian influence can still be found throughout this seaside town, in its names, history, and a unique accent.
Leith, Scotland - No port information available at this time
Milford Haven, Wales - The staging post for the Plantagenet Dynasty's 1170 conquest of Ireland was right here in Milford Haven, Wales. This extraordinary distinction has placed this port firmly on England's historical map for almost a millennium. Milford Haven enjoys the most sheltered harbor in all of Britain, thanks to its unique position on a landlocked inlet that penetrates 17 miles inland, bisecting the county of Pembrokeshire.
Stornoway, Hebrides - At the western edge of Britain, see mysterious standing stones dating from the Bronze Age; and the hardy highland sheep that yield the wool that crofters spin into Harris tweed—a tactile delight and a practical enhancement for your wardrobe. You'll be told that, like wine, it's best when aged.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.
