Southampton

Southampton

Embark: 10 December 2022
The UK's premier passenger ship port, located in the picturesque English county of Hampshire, Southampton is a vibrant waterfront city, serviced by direct trains to London, an airport, and an international cruise terminal. Explore the city’s maritime heritage and links to RMS Titanic in the Sea City Museum, see contemporary British art in the Cultural Quarter, or walk the medieval walls in the Old Town. Further afield you’ll find The New Forest National Park, Winchester Cathedral, Stonehenge, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the Isle of Wight, while the city’s thriving craft beer and culinary scene will leave you spoilt for choice.
Hamburg

Hamburg

In Port: 12 December 2022
Established by Charlemagne, Hamburg owes much of its architecture to the rebuilding done in the late 19th and early 20th centuries after a massive fire. World War II also inflicted severe damage, but the city's medieval character is still evident thanks to post-war restorations. Water is a wonderful feature here - as you'll notice when you arrive along the River Elbe, investigate quirky historic districts by canal and glide past highly desirable addresses lining the Alster lakes.
Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Rotterdam, The Netherlands

In Port: 14 December 2022
Rotterdam does innovation and imagination like nowhere else. The Nazi bombardment gutted most, but not all, of the old city. As a result, modern glass skyscrapers stand next to 19th and 18th century buildings. So many modern masterpieces demand your camera's attention, none more so than the extraordinary tilted Cube Houses. They are simply inspired!

Brussels (from Zeebrugge)

Brussels (from Zeebrugge)

In Port: 16 December 2022
Zeebrugge is your gateway to Brussels, Bruges and Ghent. The old capital of the Duchy of Burgundy, Brussels is famed for its fine cuisine and is also capital of the European Union. Bruges and Ghent are perhaps the best-preserved cities in Northern Europe. Bruges is a fairy-tale city where medieval edifices, proud bridges and overhanging trees admire their beautiful reflections in glassy canals. Around its waterways quaint cobbled streets lead you to markets, museums and churches.
