13-Night British Isles Voyage on Azamara Quest
Muse on voyages past as you sail out of Southampton, long a maritime center, its yards turning out warships for king and country from the Hundred Years War in the 14-15th centuries, to two world wars in the 20th. After a relaxing day at sea you’ll arrive for two full nights in Edinburgh where you should head to its historic heart for a walk down The Royal Mile. At the top, perched above the city, is Edinburgh Castle, home to the crown jewels and sweeping views.
An overnight in Dundee means more time to explore the UK’s first designated UNESCO City of Design. The new V&A Museum Of Design is housed in a world-class building at the heart of the newly transformed waterfront. Visit and learn the story of Scotland's outstanding design heritage. A late stay in Invergordon to take in the natural setting of mountains, tumbling waterfalls, rushing rivers, and serene lochs is next, followed by another day sampling fine wines at sea.
Cruise into a late stay in Belfast, famous for the launch of the RMS Titanic before setting sail for yet another late night in the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow. Your final late night will be in Douglas, whose lovely sea front is lined with picturesque hotels and restaurants, and can be traversed by horse-drawn trams as it has been since 1876. Finally you’ll come to Dublin for your final stop and last overnight of your voyage. Sample a Guinness and the latest lore at The Brazen head, serving up drink and daydreams for 800 years.
