This ex-UK tour takes you from Liverpool across to the vibrant, contemporary city of Belfast, down to the beautiful green coasts of Galicia and to gorgeous Lisbon, before sailing across to the sub-tropical Azores Islands. Here you will experience volcanic hot springs, steaming geysers and sub-tropical forests, alongside stunning colonial architecture and dramatic volcanic scenery. This relaxing cruise returns to Liverpool at the end of a journey encompassing vibrant cities, natural beauty, maritime and Napoleonic history and sub-tropical gardens, as well as a welcome, late dose of southern sun.
