Explore the historic coasts and seaports of England and Ireland on this voyage aboard our state-of-the-art hybrid ship Fridtjof Nansen.
Voyage back in time as we sail up the beautiful coasts of England and Ireland. You'll set out from Portsmouth, which played a key role in WWII, and visit Fowey in Cornwall, where pirates once smuggled rum and gold along the picturesque coast; Waterford in Ireland, founded by the Vikings in the 9th century; and Liverpool, beloved city of modern culture and Victorian nostalgia. There'll be plenty to occupy the curious, from ancient ruins, castles and Viking settlements, to picturesque fishing villages, famous historic ships and the vibrant modern city of Liverpool. You'll visit Cornwall's rugged coastline with its rocky coves, and maybe drop in on the nearby Eden Project, which features the world's largest enclosed tropical rainforest.
