    Relaxation at sea

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Honfleur/France, 8.00 – 18.45 hrs

    Honfleur/France
    Boudin and Renoir used to wander the narrow streets of Honfleur – and now you can discover the half-timbered houses of the old town. Monet immortalised the Gothic cathedral at Rouen*, which itself went down it history as the “city of 100 church towers”. The surrounding area of Pays d’Auge* is the home of Calvados, which you can sample in a distillery.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    St. Helier/Jersey/Channel Islands/Great Britain, 7.00 – 12.00 hrs
    Sark, 14.00 – 19.00 hrs

    St. Helier/Jersey/Channel Islands/Great Britain
    Get to know the capital of the unconventional Channel Islands at your own pace, or explore the wild beaches of the south coast by walk*.

    Sark/Channel Islands/Great Britain
    Sark is a British island with the flair of France and a place where cars are a rare sight. Instead, wonderful gardens bloom – of which La Seigneurie is probably one of the most beautiful.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Portland/England, 7.00 – 0.00 hrs

    Portland/England/Great Britain
    The Jurassic Coast* is as wild and unspoilt as when it evolved millions of years ago. A hike along the coast offers magnificent views, such as the spectacular cliff arch at Lulworth Cove. Encounter what is probably one of the world’s most mysterious structures at Stonehenge* followed by a stroll through medieval Salisbury*.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Dartmouth, 7.00 – 21.00 hrs

    Dartmouth/England/Great Britain
    The best way to enjoy the charm of the English Riviera is on a nostalgic steam train*, which chugs past golden beaches and romantic cottages to Paignton. Other perspectives will be provided by your journey through the sometimes barren landscape of Dartmoor National Park, where you can take a peek behind the monastery walls at Buckfast Abbey*.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Falmouth, 3.30 – 20.30 hrs

    Falmouth/England/Great Britain
    Picturesque fishing villages, rugged cliffs, gently rolling meadows – Cornwall’s* stunning backdrop is truly cinematic. Follow the natural beauty to the coast at Land’s End, England’s most westerly point, enjoying the view of the tidal island of Saint Michael’s Mount along the way. Alternatively, you can explore three of the world’s climate zones in the greenhouses of the Eden Project*.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Tresco/Scilly Isles, 7.00 – 15.00 hrs

    Tresco/Scilly Isles/Great Britain
    Thanks to its mild climate, this small island houses one of Cornwall’s most spectacular gardens: Abbey Gardens. Its variety of exotic and rare plants is unique in Great Britain.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Avonmouth (Bristol), 4.00 – 17.00 hrs

    Avonmouth (Bristol)/England/Great Britain
    Alongside Bristol’s rich heritage, Bath* is another great place to explore. Marvel at the remarkable excavations in the Roman Baths and the terrace at Royal Crescent. The spirit of many different eras pervades Cardiff Castle*, where you can explore the relics of Roman and Norman castles and a Victorian house.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Milford Haven/Wales, 7.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Milford Haven/Wales/Great Britain
    Behind the “gateway to the west coast”, you will be welcomed by green Welsh meadows and wonderful views on the way to Pembroke Castle*. Wales’ smallest city also has a great deal to explore: cleverly concealed in a hollow is St David’s* imposing 12th-century cathedral – an unforgettable sight.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Cobh/Ireland, 8.00 – 0.00 hrs

    Cobh/Ireland
    Standing proud, St Colman’s Cathedral welcomes you to the Irish coast. Where the first steamship once set sail, you will set out in speedy rigid inflatable boats (RIB)* for the fishing village of Kinsale, with medieval houses in all manner of colours. Enjoy a taste of cultural heritage in the Old Midleton Whiskey Distillery*, where Irish whiskey was apparently invented.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Relaxation at sea

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Dover/England/Great Britain, 7.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Dover/England/Great Britain
    Look forward to a welcome from a world-famous sight: the imposing chalk cliffs shine from afar, promising further highlights. Plan an excursion to London*, explore the cultural sights at your own pace and browse the capital’s chic department stores. Alternatively, be enchanted by Canterbury*, which offers a glimpse of the past with historic weaving houses and its imposing cathedral behind the mighty city gates. Garden fans especially should not miss out on one of the world’s most significant examples: Sissinghurst Castle Garden*.

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Relaxation at sea
    Evening passage through the Kiel Canal

    Tuesday, 17.07.2018

    Golf

    Tue 10 May Honfleur, France – New Golf Barriere de Deauville
    The first 18 holes of this course were sculpted out of the Norman landscape by Tom Simpson in 1929. Today, three 9-hole courses offer numerous bunkers and some very fast greens. The three 9-hole courses are combined depending on the season and wind direction.

    Thu 12 May Portland, England – Dorset Golf Club
    The highlands of Portland offer three sets of 9 holes. And it is not just their names – Lakeland, Parkland and Woodland – that differ. The spacious facility is designed as a loop and always starts directly... Read more

    The first 18 holes of this course were sculpted out of the Norman landscape by Tom Simpson in 1929. Today, three 9-hole courses offer numerous bunkers and some very fast greens. The three 9-hole courses are combined depending on the season and wind direction.

    Thu 12 May Portland, England – Dorset Golf Club
    The highlands of Portland offer three sets of 9 holes. And it is not just their names – Lakeland, Parkland and Woodland – that differ. The spacious facility is designed as a loop and always starts directly from the clubhouse to wherever you finish.

    Fri 13 May Dartmouth – Dartmouth Golf & Country Club (Additional course 1)
    In the middle of the British highlands, an interesting golfing challenge awaits you. The 18 fairways on the parkland course lead over some highly varied terrain. This course therefore requires careful space management because your position may prove crucial to your result.

    Mon 16 May Avonmouth (Bristol) – Celtic Manor Golf Club
    This resort has 54 holes; the Twenty Ten Course (6,852 m in length) and one par 71 were created specially for the 2010 Ryder Cup, when the Europeans defeated the USA by one point. Visitors can experience the same feeling as the sporting greats.

    Tue 17 May Milford Haven, Wales – Tenby Golf Club (Additional course 2)
    Old, older, oldest. The club is proud of its 125-year history. It is particularly worth mentioning that only golf has ever been played on this piece of land. The links course runs directly alongside the Atlantic.

    Wed 18 May Cobh, Ireland – Fota Island Golf Club
    This club has 54 holes spread over three courses. The Deerpark Course has twice hosted the Irish Open tournament. The three courses have one thing in common: you should explore them using a Strokesaver, which is extremely helpful in managing the course.

    Fri 20 May Dover, England – Prince’s Golf Club
    The typical English dune landscape is the setting for this 27-hole links course. The untouched natural surroundings make the three sets of 9 holes another spectacular sight. Here, golf is celebrated in a very traditional manner.
