    The highlights of this cruise

    From Hamburg, the EUROPA will set sail for the United Kingdom, finally calling at NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE again, after a relaxing day at sea. Each of the seven bridges over the river that gave the city its name tells its own unique story from Newcastle’s long history. Today, this former trading centre is still considered the gateway to Scotland – and the EUROPA will head for Great Britain’s northernmost country from here. You will have time to explore EDINBURGH* until late into the evening. From the winding alleys of the medieval Old Town to the splendid boulevards of the Georgian New Town, Scotland’s capital city – listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site twice – is full of exciting contrasts. During the Military Tattoo* music festival, Edinburgh Castle is lit up in the evening, making it a very atmospheric setting for Scottish tradition.

    A visit to the majestic HIGHLANDS* will bring you even closer to Scotland’s origins. The rugged landscape of mountains and lakes stretches as far as the eye can see. Venerable castles tell the history of old clans, and on the banks of Loch Ness*, at the foot of the ruined Urquhart Castle*, legends seem close enough to touch.
    Off the coast of Scotland, the islands of the Inner Hebrides await you, full of almost mystical flair. The ISLE OF SKYE, or the “misty isle”, is famous for spectacular landscapes and castles built by powerful clans. Today, the MacLeods still reside at Dunvegan Castle*, Scotland’s oldest continuously inhabited castle. They have turned the surrounding gardens into an enchanting green oasis of exotic shrubs, pergolas and waterfalls. The beauty of nature also permeates the Isle of Mull: eagles soar through the air, deer roam through the forests and, with a little luck, you’ll spot seals and dolphins at the coast.

    World literature meets pub culture: DUBLIN, the city of Wilde, Joyce, Beckett and so many other great literary figures, is officially a UNESCO City of Literature. Since the EUROPA will stay here overnight, you will be able to enjoy Dublin’s creative atmosphere in depth, and explore two of Ireland’s most pleasant parks: Powerscourt Gardens* and Mount Usher Gardens*. Perhaps you’d like to take in the magnificent library at Trinity College* or visit the Guinness Storehouse* and learn more about the art of brewing beer? With its palm-lined promenade, lively street cafes and yachts bobbing in the harbour, TORQUAY is another town that shows England from its sunny side. Relax in one of the English Riviera’s glorious gardens, marvel at the verdant splendour of the Lost Gardens of Heligan*, and enjoy a view of the impressively illuminated Millennium Bridge in the evening. After a relaxing day at sea and an evening passage through the Kiel Canal, your cruise will come to an end in Kiel, having shown you the highlights of the British Isles.

    * The shore activities are not included in the cruise price and are in the planning stage. Subject to change. Numbers are very limited.
