The concept of cruising for leisure was born in Great Britain, in the Shetland Islands in 1835, however cruising the British Isles is relatively new. The idea of not flying, no long periods at sea and no borders to cross is appealing to many and the ports of call are becoming well equipped for receiving hundreds of visitors on a day’s excursion ashore.
Most itineraries on these UK cruises will include a call at St Peter Port on the Channel Island of Guernsey, where tax free shopping is available and where, whilst docked, the ship will hold duty free status.
Wildlife such as otters, seals, dolphins and even whales can be seen whilst traversing the Scottish islands. In addition, some of Great Britain’s most culturally rich attractions can be enjoyed in Dublin, Edinburgh and Cobh (Cork). Occasionally, a French port of call may also be offered, usually Honfleur or Cherbourg.
