Itinerary

Amsterdam
Day 1
Amsterdam is a gorgeous Dutch city where a boat cruise along the canals gets to the heart of things. Yet, the magic also unfolds while strolling through narrow streets and crossing the hundreds of bridges. It houses a treasure trove of fabulous art museums, including the Rijksmuseum, adorned with Dutch Masters, conveniently located near the Van Gogh Museum. To the south, picturesque stretches of countryside with windmills line the canals.
Zeebrugge
Day 2
Zeebrugge is a picturesque seaside resort and Belgium's primary port. The marina is home to Seafront, a maritime theme park situated in the historic fish auction house. The Baudouin Canal seamlessly links Zeebrugge to the captivating city of Bruges, often referred to as the Venice of the North due to its enchanting canals. Bruges is celebrated for its medieval architecture, lacemaking, exquisite Belgian beer and mouthwatering chocolate.
Honfleur
Day 3
Honfleur in Normandy has attracted artists for centuries, including Impressionist Claude Monet, with many works on display at The Eugène Boudin Museum. Set on the Seine estuary in the department of Calvados (known for apple brandy), this picturesque harbour town has cobbled streets and colourful 16th- to 18th-century townhouses around the Vieux Bassin (old harbour). The 15th-century St. Catherine's Church is built entirely of wood by shipwrights.
Saint-Malo
Day 4
The medieval coastal city of Saint-Malo is a labyrinth of streets. Dating back to the 12th century, Saint-Malo was once a haven for pirates and a stopping point for merchant ships. Today, colourful shops sit alongside aromatic markets, cafes and restaurants serving oysters, crêpes and cider. Intra-Muros, the ancient walled town, forms the heart of Saint-Malo, where the striking Gothic and Romanesque Cathédrale de St Malo dominates the skyline.
Tresco, Isles of Scilly, England
Day 5
Tresco, one of the five inhabited islands of the Isles of Scilly, is a subtropical paradise located 45 km off the coast of Cornwall. The Gulf Stream provides a mild climate, allowing flowers and other flora to thrive, including the 20,000 global species found in Tresco Abbey Garden. This world-renowned botanical garden is divided into themed areas, including the Valhalla Collection of succulents, the New Zealand Garden, and the Italian Garden.
Concarneau
Day 6
The picturesque French port city of Concarneau is in the Finistère department of Brittany. On a tiny islet, Its medieval walled city has narrow alleys and ramparts. Nearby, the artist village of Pont Aven, discovered in the 1860s by American painters, became a popular stop for French artist Paul Gauguin who set up the École de Pont-Aven art movement known as synthetism. The local speciality, galettes are melt-in-the-mouth Breton butter biscuits.
Day at sea
Day 7
Sea days are rarely dull. Take the time to sit back and let the world go by. The ship’s observation decks provide stunning views of the passing ocean. A day at sea gives you the opportunity to mingle with other passengers and share your experiences of this incredible trip or head to our library which is stocked full of reference books. Get an expert’s view in one of our on-board lectures or perhaps perfect your photography skills with invaluable advice from our onboard professional photographers.
Vigo
Day 8
Gateway to the Atlantic, Vigo is a major fishing port with a canning and freezing industry. Casco Vello, the old town with steep narrow streets and picturesque squares, leads to the fish market. Monte O Castro hill offers an old fortress and a third-century BC archaeological site. Nearby, the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage way leads to the UNESCO-protected Old Town of Santiago de Compostela with its majestic cathedral is a short bus ride away.
Leixoes (Oporto)
Day 9
Famed for its port wine and bridges over the river Douro, Portugal’s second city, Oporto (Porto) is a city of two halves. On the left bank is Gaia's famed port houses such as Graham's and Taylor's. Ribeira, on the right bank, has rows of colourful old houses that line the riverfront, narrow streets that rise up the hill and Igreja de Carmo church whose facade is adorned with blue azulejos (tiles). A vintage tram trundles to the Foz district.
Lisbon
Day 10
Spread over seven hills with São Jorge Castle views, bustling Lisbon is one of the world's oldest cities. Elegant Baixa, hilltop Alfama with its yellow tram, and scenic Graça overviewing pastel buildings, are top areas. The Jerónimos Monastery in Belém is a World Heritage Gothic site. The classic Portuguese pastel de nata custard tarts are a local treat. Europe’s longest suspension bridge, the Ponte 25 de Abril, crosses the river Tagus.
