DAY 1 - MALTA - LONDON
Meet the tour manager at Malta International Airport for your flight to London. Upon arrival transfer to Southampton Cruise Terminal for embarkation of your cruise on board the Royal Princess.

DAY 2 - 13 CRUISE
The Royal Princess is Princess Cruises’ flagship, christened by the lovely and royal Duchess of Cambridge, formerly Kate Middleton. This ship is larger than any other Princess ship before her and features incredible features, most notably the SeaWalk, a glass enclosed hallway that extends 28 feet beyond the edge of the ship giving passengers a spectacular and unobstructed view of the ocean below. The Royal Princess features dozens of food options and an area to play bocce ball, croquet and golf, along with an expanded atrium with a tea tower where passengers can brew their own tea blend - a very royal experience, indeed.

PORTS OF CALL

GUERNSEY
Guernsey, second largest of the Channel Islands. It is 48 km west of Normandy, France, and roughly triangular in shape. With Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou, and associated islets, it forms the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Its capital is St. Peter Port. In the south, Guernsey rises in a plateau to about 300 feet with ragged coastal cliffs. It descends in steps and is drained mainly by streams flowing northward in deeply incised valleys. Northern Guernsey is low-lying, although small outcrops of resistant rock form hills (hougues).The soil on lower ground is of blown sand, raised beach deposits, and the fills of old lagoons.

CORK
Cork is Ireland`s third city (after Dublin and Belfast) and has always been an important seaport. It began on an island in the swampy estuary of the River Lee and gradually climbed up the steep banks on either side. Today the river flows through Cork city in two main channels, so that you find yourself constantly crossing bridges. The best way to see the city and sample the flavours of its life is to walk. Dublin is the capital of Ireland and the country’s largest city. It is located on the east coast, overlooking Dublin Bay and the Irish Sea. The Liffey is the main river running through the city, dissecting it into ‘northside’ and ‘southside’.

DUBLIN
Dublin is considered the economic and business centre of the country. As well as retaining historic and cultural charms, the city mixes contemporary and traditional at most every turn. Here you will find the best of cosmopolitan and elegant hotels, trendy bars & restaurants as well as great museums and heritage trails. Liverpool is a city with unique attractions, exciting events, world class sport offerings, unrivalled musical heritage and famously warm welcomes. Liverpool is the ideal destination to visit and explore. With the largest collection of museums and galleries anywhere outside of the Capital, Liverpool’s culture and heritage are at the very heart of the city. You’ll always find a fantastic selection of things to do, places to explore and exciting events.

BELFAST
Belfast is in many ways a brand - new city. The old shipyards on the Lagan continue to give way to the luxury apartments of the Titanic Quarter, whose centrepiece – the stunning, star-shaped edifice housing the Titanic Belfast centre, covering the ill-fated liner's construction here has become the city's number-one tourist draw; it was even named the world's leading tourist attraction at the 2016 World Travel Awards. New venues keep popping up, already this decade, historic Crumlin Road Gaol and SS Nomadic opened to the public. They all add to a list of attractions that includes beautifully restored Victorian architecture, a glittering waterfront lined with modern art, a fantastic and fast-expanding foodie scene and music-filled pubs.

GLASGOW
Scotland's biggest city has evolved over the last couple of decades to become one of Britain's most intriguing metropolises. The soberly handsome Victorian buildings, legacies of wealth generated from manufacturing and trade, suggest a staid sort of place. They are packed with stylish bars, top-notch restaurants and one of Britain's best live-music scenes. The place's sheer vitality is gloriously infectious: the combination of edgy urbanity and the residents' legendary friendliness is captivating.

INVERGORDON
Invergordon lies in a particularly beautiful part of the Highlands of Scotland. The village lies near the head of a Firth or Fjord on an arm of the North Sea, and is surrounded by mountains and gentle rolling farmland. The unique features of Invergordon lie in the ability to dock several large liners simultaneously, whilst at the same time offering a very large number of different and exciting shore excursions which appeal to the passengers on board these liners. Virtually every cruise line that calls at North European ports, calls at Invergordon at least once a year and frequently more often.

EDINBURGH
Edinburgh is a city that begs to be discovered, filled with quirky, come-hither nooks that tempt you to explore just that little bit further. Edinburgh is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, draped across a series of rocky hills overlooking the sea. It’s a town intimately entwined with its landscape, with buildings and monuments perched atop crags and overshadowed by cliffs. From the Old Town’s picturesque jumble of medieval tenements piled high along the Royal Mile, its turreted skyline strung between the black, bullnosed Castle Rock and the russet palisade of Salisbury Crags, to the New Town’s neat grid of neoclassical respectability, the city offers a constantly changing perspective.

LE HAVRE
Le Havre is a love letter to modernism, evoking, more than any other French city, France’s postwar energy and optimism. All but obliterated in September 1944 by Allied bombing raids that killed 3000 civilians, the centre was completely rebuilt by the Belgian architect Auguste Perret, whose bright, airy modernist vision remains, miraculously, largely intact. Attractions include a museum full of captivating impressionist paintings, a soaring church with a mesmerising stained-glass tower, and hilltop gardens with views over the city. Le Havre is a regular port of call for cruise ships.

DAY 13 - LONDON
Breakfast and transfer from Southampton`s Cruise Terminal to London for city tour. Relax as you travel around central London to see the sights. Pass through Parliament Square, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey , Buckingham Palace, Nelson’s Column at Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and The Tower Bridge. Transfer to Airport for your flight to Malta.
