The second largest of the Channel Islands, the Bailiwick of Guernsey lies just off the Normandy coast of France and has a strong connection to its Gallic neighbour, something you will find reflected in its place names and traditional language. Despite being a Crown Dependency of the United Kingdom, Guernsey has its own government and is a meeting point of two cultures that have commingled over the centuries into something truly special and unique.
From the ancient and Renaissance masterpieces of Rome to Moorish Spain and Andalucia, holy Portugal, spectacular river cruising in France, the English Channel and one of the greatest cities in the world, the cosmopolitan British capital of London, this cruise around western Europe has it all.
Starting in Seville, this cruise visits the magnificent city of Cordoba, the great Portuguese cities of Lisbon and Oporto, and the inspiring cathedral at Santiago de Compostela. You will also have the opportunity to taste wine in Bordeaux, visit the old quarter of La Rochelle, St Catherine's Church in Honfleur and the charming Channel Island of Guernsey.
This delightful Grand Voyage combines river cruising in Spain and France with wine tasting in Bordeaux and a spectacular maiden cruise to the North Cape of Norway in the eternal sunlight of the Arctic Circle. Not to mention the Channel and Shetland Islands as well as an incredible overnight stay in the Danish capital of Copenhagen.
