Day Port Arrival Departure
1 Amsterdam
Here in Amsterdam, you can decide whether the real masterpieces are the gabled houses that flank graceful canals, or the van Goghs, Rembrandts and Vermeers that cover the walls of the city's grand museums.

4 Newcastle, Tyne
With a 2,000 year-old history and picturesque location in the heart of Northumbria, Newcastle is an awesome sight, with its River Tyne crossed by six bridges, each one with a story all its own - the latest one being Gateshead Millennium Bridge. The main shopping street in the city is Northumberland Street, and most of the top attractions can be seen on foot in the city center.
From Earl Grey's Monument, stroll Grey Street and enjoy its fine Georgian architecture - including the impressive Theatre Royal. The Castle Keep is on the site of an 11th century 'New Castle' built by William the Conqueror's son. Don't miss Blackfriars, a 13th century Dominican monastery - and Hadrian's Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and perhaps the most important monument built by the Romans in Britain. Tour its forts and turrets or simply walk a span of it through the magnificent countryside.

Rosyth is your gateway to the wonders of Scotland. Time travel through centuries of history as you tour the Roman fortification of Antonine Wall, Edinburgh Castle, and the battle site of Bannockburn; explore Edinburgh's Old Town with its delightful multi-storied houses and quaint side streets; and learn about the lives of famous Scottish sons Andrew Carnegie and John Muir.

6 Invergordon
The skirl of Highland bagpipes calls you ashore. Go in search of your clan tartan, and "Nessie," the spurious monster often sighted in Loch Ness.

Tue 12 Sep 2017 08:00 Tue 12 Sep 2017 17:00
7 Lerwick
The countryside is laced with lakes and vast peat bogs. Pause in the Tingwall valley to see the petite Shetland ponies; explore Jarlshof's Stone, Bronze and Iron age ruins; take a ferry to Mousa to see the 200-year-old "broch," or castle.

9 Oslo
At the head of Oslofjord, Norway's handsome capital is the logical first stop in Scandinavia. Thor Heyerdahl's raft, Kon Tiki, recalls a voyage between Easter Island and Tahiti to prove a theory about the earliest colonization of Oceania. Watch the changing of the palace guard; ferry to the open-air Folke Museum with its 12th-century stave church

12 Hamburg
Even though Hamburg is quite well known for its Reeperbahn red light district, Germany's second-largest city is more appropriately recognized for its pivotal role in Europe's economy. Its huge port facility handles a vast amount of traffic and cargo, and the city's meticulously maintained parks, soaring steeples and vibrant art scene attract a healthy tourist trade.
