Cruise Description

10 Night Cruise sailing from Edinburgh to Portsmouth aboard Star Breeze.

Close in geography, distinct in culture, the countries of the British Isles offer their own unique takes on the United Kingdom. See it all with the perspective only a Windstar ship can give you as you visit small-ship-only ports like Ullapool, Oban, and Fishguard; berth at small-ship-only locations in Belfast and London ; and stay in key cities like Belfast and Dublin late into the evening. Explore castle ruins and gardens in Scotland. Check the Giant’s Causeway and Blarney Castle off your list in Ireland. Discover the idyllic Cornish village of St. Ives. Even your disembarkation is an adventure as you dock in London right next to HMS Belfast (Tower Bridge), one of the most exclusive cruise ports in the world.

Highlights of this cruise:

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.

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.

Glasgow
The largest city in Scotland is famed for its Victorian and Art Nouveau architecture. Situated on the River Clyde, Glasgow is proud of the 12th century Glasgow Cathedral, George Square with its 12 statues of famous people including Robbie Burns, Queen Victoria and Walter Scott, and the University of Glasgow, established in 1451.

Belfast
Probably best known as the birthplace of the Titanic, Belfast was a hub for not only shipbuilding but also tobacco processing, rope-making and Irish linen in the early 20th century. Today the old shipyards are giving way to luxury apartments in what is known as the Titanic Quarter, home to the Titanic Belfast Centre, a beautiful star-shaped building covering the Titanic’s construction. Other must-sees include the Ulster Folk Museum and the Belfast Cathedral, as well as numerous award-winning restaurants and bars.

Fishguard
Welcome to the Gateway to West Wales and stunning Pembrokeshire National Park. This beautiful area provides breathtaking moments around every bend of the path as you cruise a coastline acclaimed as the world’s best and most beautiful. Don’t miss an optional visit to storybook Pembroke Castle, birthplace of Henry VII or Picton Castle with its 40 acres of gardens. Or head for the National Botanic Garden of Wales, where extensive waterscapes and the world’s largest single-span greenhouse (larger than a football field) frame a dazzling display of flora.

Cobh
Home to Ireland’s only dedicated cruise terminal, Cobh (pronounced Cove) is a charming seaport that was the exit port for 3 million immigrants between 1848 and 1950. Visit the famous St. Colman’s Cathedral with its 49-bell carillon and Fota Wildlife Park where wallabys roam free. Cork, just inland from here, is a university city with a unique 1824 castle-style Gaol which once held prisoners bound for Australia. The hilltop steeple of 18th century Church of Saint Anne is the landmark of the city.

Portsmouth
One of the world’s best known ports, Portsmouth is home to the British Royal Navy and some famous ships like Mary Rose, HMS Warrior and the oldest naval ship still in commission, HMS Victory. It is one of the few cities of England with two cathedrals and boasts one of the tallest structures in the United Kingdom, the 560-foot-high Spinnaker Tower.
