Where we sail.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Strikingly beautiful Amsterdam is spoken of highly for its concentric canals and the humpbacked bridges that cross them, and for its cyclist-friendly avenues of graceful tall trees and gabled houses.

Belfast, NI, UK

Belfast, capital of Northern Ireland, enjoys a wonderful setting of high hills, sea lough and river valley. Founded in the 17th century, the city prospered to become a world-leading industrial center.

Bremerhaven, Germany

Bilbao, Spain

Bilbao is in the heart of Basque Country on the Iberian coast bordering the Bay of Biscay. It’s known for the wet and temperate climate that sustains its landscapes of lush dairy pastures and forests.

Bass Rock, Scotland, UK (Cruise-by)

From North Berwick we pass the magnificent Bass Rock, an imposing volcanic island about a mile from the shore of the Firth of Forth. It features impressive bird and marine wildlife and a lighthouse.

Cadiz, Spain

Historic, mysterious and romantic, the Spanish city of Cadiz is unlike any other. Founded in about 1100 BC, it is generally accepted as the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in today’s Europe.
