    The highlights of this cruise

    Welcome to the southern coast of England and the port of COWES. CORNWALL* is famous around the world for being a magical place of little fishing villages, thatched cottages and green meadows. This special aura also fills the air at the Lost Gardens of Heligan* near FOWEY. Next, delve into Ireland’s traditions with a visit to Bantry House*, a trip to one of the quaint pubs in DINGLE or a view of the amazing Cliffs of Moher*. Scotland is proud of its legends – and rightly so. Lose yourself in your daydreams at romantic castles overlooking the lakes and moors of the Highlands*. The soundtrack to the Scottish way of life awaits you in EDINBURGH*, where you’ll arrive just in time for the Military Tattoo*. Enjoy two days of the festival in the capital around Edinburgh Castle* before returning to HAMBURG.

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

    Experience the world’s best golf courses with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

    On our exclusive Golf & Cruise voyages, we have reserved the best golf courses for you in advance and put together attractive basic packages.

    Basic package: Four courses
    € 2,290 per person
    Additional course 1: € 350 per person
    Additional course 2: € 390 per person

    This cruise brings you the best of British golf. This is not necessarily always just about a polished layout – it is the very natural terrains that make these holes special and determine the course of a game. The icing on the cake is when you can head back to the clubhouse with a successful score and order a glass of the local single malt.

    Sat 05.08.2023 Fowey, England – Lanhydrock Golf Club – additional course 1
    This parkland course nestled amongst mature trees lies in a valley near Bodmin in the heart of Cornwall. Players need precision here – the moderately sized landing zones demand an accurate approach. This means it might be wise to take one club less, as there’s little that will save you if your ball disappears into the undergrowth around the trees.

    Mon 07.08.2023 Bantry, Ireland – Bantry Bay Golf Club
    Golf fans can look forward to a combination of parkland and links course here. The holes lie right on Bantry Bay, offering views of the town of Bantry. It’s a good idea to make use of a golf cart for the rather hilly fairways. The original traditional layout has plenty of surprises in store during a round. You may find that the tee for one hole needs to be played across the green of the previous hole, for instance.

    Wed 09.08.2023 Galway, Ireland – Galway Bay Golf Resort
    The Irish professional golfer Christy O’Connor Jr has created an enchanting blend of classic links style and resort course here right on the Atlantic coast. The holes have rather unusual wide fairways, paired with plenty of typical pot bunkers and small, fast greens. On top of all this, you have the views and the wind off the Atlantic to contend with.

    Fri 11.08.2023 Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland – Ballyliffin Golf Club
    This classic links course is up in the north of the island of Ireland. Nature has had a key hand in the design of the course here. The very undulating dune terrain shapes the entire golfing landscape right on the Atlantic coast. The blind spots this creates are just one of the features of this original course design. – A golfing adventure that will transport players back to the origins of the game.

    Mon 14.08.2023 Invergordon, Scotland – Royal Dornoch Golf Club
    There is evidence that golf was played in Dornoch as early as 1616. The historic links course that still stands here was established in 1877. The natural course is particularly impressive in late spring and early summer when the gorse bushes are in bloom. The flowers give off a wonderful vanilla fragrance and form a wall of yellow blossom around a large part of the holes, creating a very special atmosphere on the course for all the senses. In typical links style, the fairways run almost side by side between the gorse and the coast until the ninth hole and then head back in the direction of the clubhouse.

    Wed 16.08.2023 Newhaven, Scotland – Dalmahoy Country Club – East Course – additional course 2
    This 36-hole course is one of the more typical English-style golf courses. Players will need precision for their round, but those who can send their ball in the right direction on the rather narrow holes will love and enjoy this course. The championship course also has numerous water hazards in store, which find their way into play now and then.


    • In order to guarantee a comfortable flow of play for all golfers, we have determined a basic speed, which is sufficient for a playing time of 4.5 to 5 hours on foot (covering 18 holes with a trolley).
    • Due to tournaments, renovations, etc. at the various golf clubs, our Golf & Cruise programme is subject to change at short notice.
    • Golf & Cruise voyages allow all players with a handicap of 36 or less to play on courses all over the world. 
    • Additional courses can only be booked in conjunction with the basic package.
    • The reservation of e-carts cannot always be guaranteed due to local availability and weather conditions. You may, therefore, have to play and walk just with trolleys - possibly even on hilly courses. Please consider this when planning/booking your Golf & Cruise package. 
    • Halfway refreshments are always ordered via the respective golf club; we have no influence on the quality of the snacks. We kindly ask for your understanding.
    • When booking a Golf & Cruise package and flights through Hapag-Lloyd, we will register your golf equipment directly with the airlines – when possible and required. The current baggage regulations of the relevant airline apply. In your travel documents, which you will receive about four weeks prior to departure, you will find relevant information about this. Excess baggage fees for golf equipment are normally to be paid at check-in.
    • Minimum number of participants for basic packages: 12 persons.
    • Minimum number of participants for additional courses: 10 persons.
    • If the minimum number of participants is not reached, cancellation will occur no later than eight weeks prior to cruise departure.
    • Rental clubs for right-handed and left-handed players are available on board, subject to a surcharge.
