British Isles

Although the whole concept of cruising for leisure was born in Great Britain, the idea of sailing round the British Isles is relatively new. American visitors, however, find the idea fascinating and British passengers wanting to learn more about their homeland are becoming increasingly interested in cruising at home.

The idea of not flying, no long periods at sea and no borders to cross is appealing to many. The Scottish Islands provide the chance to view amazing wildlife while some of the UK's culturally rich attractions may be seen in cities accessible on a cruise holiday.

The islands off the coast of Scotland provide the chance to view wildlife such as otters, seals, dolphins and even whales, while also offering the very popular itineraries around the famed Scottish whisky producing islands. On most Round Britain voyages cruise lines will endeavour to bring in interesting and enlightening lecture series from experts increasing the attractive proposition of this itinerary.

Most itineraries include a call at St Peter Port on the Channel Island of Guernsey, where tax free shopping is possible whilst at the same time giving the ship duty free status, while occasionally, an additional French port of call may be offered, usually Honfleur or Cherbourg.
