    The highlights of this cruise

    Where better to start a cruise around Scotland than in the capital city, EDINBURGH. Hidden in the shadows of the venerable Rosslyn Chapel* and behind the walls of Edinburgh Castle*, there are 1,000 years of eventful history to discover. Get closer to the traditions of the Highlands in KIRKWALL on a visit to a whisky distillery* or on a lobster fishing* trip off the coast of ULLAPOOL. For insights into the world of the Scottish clans, visit Inveraray Castle*, which sits amidst majestic natural scenery near OBAN. Get to know the different sides to Ireland as you explore BELFAST or follow in the tracks of Celtic customs on the ISLE OF MAN. LIVERPOOL welcomes you with modern art, lots of music and historic buildings – go in search of the perfect souvenir before saying goodbye in DUBLIN.

    * 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: Three courses
    € 1,790 per person
    Additional course: € 390 per person

    Like a good whisky, this route is full-bodied with an enjoyable aftertaste. The Irish Sea is your starting point for four Scottish, Irish and English golfing experiences. On every fairway, you will experience a variation of the historic origin of the game. The dunes along the coastal strips determine the exact layout of each course. – A golf cruise in historic spots, and not just on the golf course.

    Fri 09.08.2024 Leith (Edinburgh), Scotland – Dalmahoy Hotel & Country Club – East Course
    This very typically English golf course has two different 18-hole experiences. The traditional layout of the course means the fairways are very narrow, which demands a great deal of precision. You also need to concentrate on sending your ball off in the right direction so that this course and its intense golfing experience stay in your memory. As well as the narrow fairways already described, bunkers that are typical of English courses also need to be avoided. There are also some impressive water hazards to play around on the Championship Course.

    Wed 14.08.2024 Belfast, Northern Ireland – Royal Belfast Golf Club
    Ireland’s oldest golf club was personally appointed a royal golf course by King Edward VII in 1885. Established in 1881 as a six-hole course, it has grown over time into an 18-hole parkland course. The fairways may have been modernised several times over the years, but they can’t deny their royal roots. This becomes particularly clear when you enter the historic clubhouse after your game.

    Thu 15.08.2024 Douglas (Isle of Man), England – Castletown Golf Links – Additional course
    This course is situated on a peninsula in Castletown Bay, surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean. This location means that many of the fairways end with greens on the steep cliffs, which drop straight down into the sea. The golfing challenges are not only in the course layout, however. The constant sea breeze also has a strong influence on the trajectory of the ball, and the distracting views have a part to play as well.

    Fri 16.08.2024 Liverpool, England – West Lancashire Golf Club
    In the dunes north of Liverpool, a typically northern English links course awaits. With its undulating, narrow fairways, impenetrable roughs and fast greens, you can look forward to a highly original game of golf. As well as the challenges of the layout, you also need to watch out for the constantly changing wind blowing off the Atlantic. All in all, careful course management is required. – Just what you might have imagined for your British golfing experience.
