Itinerary

Description

Discover dramatic coastlines, picturesque harbours and scenic landscapes. This short cruise captures charming Guernsey and the beautiful Isles of Scilly, with the chance to visit tropical Tresco Abbey Gardens. Discover medieval Honfleur with its cobbled streets and lofty narrow houses overlooking the colourful harbour. Perhaps opt to visit Monet’s famous garden at Giverny, or the chic resort of Deauville.

Cruise

Day 1 – Embarkation in Cardiff

After joining the coach, we travel to Cardiff and board the Marco Polo. We then begin our journey, taking time to relax in our cabins or on deck and enjoying the use of the ship’s range of leisure facilities. 

Day 2 – St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly

Our destination today is Britain’s only island archipelago, the magical Isles of Scilly, which lie just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. St Mary’s, the largest of the five inhabited islands, is a delight with white sand beaches, tranquil waters and stunning seascapes. The attractive village of Hugh Town, considered the ‘capital’, is the hub of the islands’ activity. The second largest and the only privately-owned island is Tresco, where, in the glorious Abbey Gardens, some 20,000 exotic species thrive in the sub-tropical climate. Optional excursions explore both St Mary’s and Tresco, two of the beautiful cluster of islands that are worlds apart from everyday life.

Day 3 – St Peter Port, Guernsey

We arrive in St Peter Port in Guernsey where Castle Cornet has stood guard for over 800 years. The attractive town is a delight with cobbled streets, steep stairways and alleyways winding their way down between the houses to a picturesque waterfront of grey and white stone buildings. Guernsey is geographically closer to France, yet loyal to the British crown, and this is reflected in the wonderful Anglo-French ambience around the town. The second largest of the Channel Islands has a wonderful coastline with beautiful bays and pastoral scenery that includes the handsome, much-prized Guernsey dairy cows. The tax-free haven is perfect for duty-free shopping.

Day 4 – Honfleur, France

We cruise into the picturesque port of Honfleur this morning. Over the years many renowned painters and writers have been attracted to Honfleur, with its narrow, half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets and charming old harbour set in a sheltered cove off the Seine’s tidal estuary. Unlike many of its Normandy neighbours, Honfleur was spared during the bombing of World War Two and nestled in its tidy, picturesque streets historic buildings house art galleries, artists’ studios, boutiques, restaurants, cafés and fine souvenir shops.

Day 5 – Disembarkation in Portsmouth

We arrive in Portsmouth in the morning where we disembark and join the coach for our journey home.
