Dun Laoghaire (Dublin) to Copenhagen
Much like the Irish blessing, the road, fjords and emerald scenery rise up to meet you throughout this 16-day cruise to historic Northern European ports, emerald-topped cliffs and unspoiled Norwegian fjords during visits throughout Ireland, the Isle of Man, Scotland, Norway, and Denmark. Sip a rich and frothy stout and take in Dublin’s skyline from the Gravity Bar. Float past lonely Scottish castles, serrated coastal cliffs and seemingly endless windswept heaths. Ride deep into the Norwegian wilderness aboard the scenic Flam Railway. Spiral skyward in the hoofsteps of royalty inside Copenhagen’s Rundetaarn, a 17th century observatory built for horses and carriages and host to horseback rulers like Czar Peter the Great.

Day 1: Dun Laoghaire (Dublin)
Dublin is a city of delights and surprises. Stroll across the Ha’Penny Bridge to Trinity College for a glimpse of the Book of Kells. Step inside the 11th century Dublin Castle. Stop by the Guinness Storehouse or Old Jameson Distillery for a taste of Irish history. And embrace the beauty of Dublin Bay, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 2: Isle of Man
From the Manx Grand Prix to the 14th century castle at Peel. From Rushen Abbey to the island’s own breed of cats and sheep. The Isle of Man stands on its own. Here you can enjoy one of our most exciting optional excursions – experience the motorcycle course that draws fans from all over the world on our own specially designed 3-seater Trike. And enjoy beautiful scenery of this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve while you ride.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 3: Portrush
Enjoy this beautiful Northern Ireland resort town, graced by sandy beaches and wonderful tide pools. You may also want to visit Belfast from here, with its superb gardens and architecture. Or arrange a side trip to the famous Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO site. A visit to Mussenden Temple at Downhill Demesne will heighten your appreciation for the builder’s art.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 4: Tobermory
On the beautiful approach to Tobermory, you’ll be hard-pressed to decide if the cheery buildings along the harbor or the fishing boats in front have the brighter palette. Call it a draw, and an appetizer to the day ahead in this charming port off the beaten path. Go whale watching or watch the shadows play in the cloister of magnificent Iona Abbey. Good thing your yacht is so appealing or you might be tempted to stay.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 5: Portree
Watch for sea eagles as we approach Skye’s picturesque capital. The rare bird with an 8-foot wingspan was re-introduced here in 1975 and several pairs nest at Portree Bay. The pastel buildings along the waterfront and Cuillin Ridges beyond promise a day of Hebrides-style adventure. Visit stately Dunvegan Castle, or shop for naturally dyed yarns in Skye colors.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 6: Kirkwall
Everything about Orkney is olde, from the 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae (the “Scottish Pompeii”) to the peat-distilled whisky at Highland Park to the UNESCO site of the Ring of Brodgar, dating back to 2700 B.C. Even the local brogue hints at times past, accented by the area’s Viking legacy.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Invergordon
Here is your entry to Scotland’s spectacular Highlands. In Inverness, listen for the song of the Highlands in the sparkling gurgle of the River Ness as it winds through the town’s center. Look for a glimpse of the elusive Nessie in Loch Ness. And wait for whispers of Shakespeare’s Macbeth in the fairytale setting of Cawdor Castle.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 9: Edinburgh
From the Firth of Forth, a UNESCO site, to the Royal Mile, Edinburgh is steeped in history. Edinburgh Castle. The Royal Botanic Gardens. The UNESCO site of Old Town. The wonders of Edinburgh are never ending. From one of Europe’s best-preserved castles to the world’s longest herbaceous border, a riot of color and culture pervades. In this city as old as Scotland itself, you’ll find the perfect blend of historic tradition and natural beauty.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 11: Bergen
Colorful Bryggen, Bergen’s Hanseatic quay and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is so delightful you may find it difficult to explore further. But do. Watch the Huldras (forest nymphs) dance at Kjosfossen Waterfall, wander the narrow smau between the old buildings climbing the hillside.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 12: Geirangerfjord
Cruise up 9-mile-long Geirangerfjord, one of the most famous fjords of Norway.  This UNESCO site has several impressive waterfalls and your ship will cruise by the most famous waterfall of the fjord – the characteristic Seven Sisters Waterfall.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 12: Geiranger
Visit tiny goat villages to sample homemade cheese. Take a RIB boat out on the spectacular Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Buy yourself a mango ice cream cone and absorb all the beauty around you.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 13: Alesund
At the entrance to spectacular Geirangerfjord, Alesund has been voted the most beautiful town in Norway, and not only because of its location. The town burned to the ground in 1904 and was rebuilt in Art Nouveau style, with a few added elements from Nordic mythology – a longboat here, an image of Thor there.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 14: Skjolden
Located at the end of picturesque Lusterfjord with its emerald-green waters from melting glaciers, Skjolden is nestled between Norway’s highest mountain range, Jotunheimen National Park and two glaciers. It is home to the wooden, 12th century Urnes Stave Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 15: Sognefjord
Cruise up the longest and deepest fjord in Norway – and possibly the most beautiful. At its deepest the Sognefjord drops to more than 4,265 feet with the striking contrast of the mountains rising to more than 5,570 feet.  You will be able to enjoy the scenery long into the evening due to the late sunsets.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 15: Stavanger
Here’s a day for exploration. Your ship will dock in the very city center near the oldest part of town. A short stroll will take you to Stavanger Cathedral, the best preserved medieval cathedral in Norway, the city center and cobblestone pedestrian streets. Just an hour’s boat trip away is the 2,000-foot-high Pulpit Rock with its magnificent views of the lovely Lysefjord.
