Isles of the UK
Day 1 Dover
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to Dover. Embark Boudicca (3.5-star) in preparation for a late afternoon sailing.
Day 2 St Peter Port, Guernsey
In St Peter Port, Georgian and Regency architecture meets old battlements, tiered gardens and Victorian bathing pools. One highlight is Castle Cornet, an 800-year-old fortress that came under frequent attack from the French, became the last Royalist stronghold to surrender in the English Civil War, and still holds concrete gun turrets from the German occupation. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 3 Falmouth
Cornwall draws holidaymakers with great beaches, quaint fishing towns and Arthurian legends (and the hope of spotting Poldark). Will you spend your day in the harbour town of Falmouth, home to Pendennis Castle and shops full of pottery and pasties, or will you take an excursion to one of the county’s other attractions?
Day 4 At sea
Today is free as we continue our cruise. Enjoy a hearty breakfast then take your pick from the variety of activities on board. Show off your general knowledge in an afternoon or evening quiz. Try your hand at bridge, bingo or deck quoits. Or indulge in a traditional afternoon tea to while away your time. Top off the day with a sumptuous dinner or a simple tasty buffet.
Day 5 Portree, Isle of Skye
The Inner Hebrides are spectacularly wild islands, the dominion of majestic red deer, playful otters, and soaring sea eagles. We dock in Portree, the Isle of Skye's largest and liveliest town. It’s surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills - a truly beautiful place to explore. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 6 Kirkwall, Orkney Islands
Kirkwall, the capital of the Orkney Islands, echoes with Christian, Nordic and Celtic history. Highlights include the ruins of the Earl and Bishop’s palaces. You might want to visit impressive Neolithic monuments, including two ceremonial stone circles (the Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar); and Skara Brae, the best-preserved Stone Age village in Europe.
Day 7 Lerwick, Shetland Islands
Over 100 islands known as Shetland lay in the far north-east of Britain. Only 15 of them are inhabited, leaving swathes of heather-clad moorlands confined by rugged cliffs and pristine beaches. We dock for the day in Lerwick, a tiny capital with independent shops and historic buildings. They give way to the well-preserved remains of a small Bronze Age settlement, cliffs that house thousands of seabirds, and wilderness patrolled by Shetland ponies.
Day 8 Aberdeen
Aberdeen is a striking granite city on a coastline visited by whales, dolphins and porpoises. It’s also a gateway to hundreds of castles and several renowned whisky distilleries. You could spend your day learning about the Gordon Highlanders, or embracing Scotland’s wild spirit one last time.
Day 9 At sea
f you’re still full of energy as we sail home, there‘s lots to fill your time - from quizzes, games and music recitals to walks on deck and dance classes. And of course there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy all the tasty food options.
Day 10 Dover
We disembark after breakfast. Your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
