Shore Trips in the UK and Northern Europe
Ports of call in Northern Europe include some of the most beautiful (St Petersburg, Stockholm), historic (London, Edinburgh) and laidback (Amsterdam, Helsinki) cities in the world. Explore scenic archipelagos, tour centuries-old castles and look at some of the planet’s best art.
Amsterdam cruises arrive at the Eastern Docklands, which is close to Central Station and can be reached on foot in ten to twenty minutes (Centraal Station). Visit one of the city’s well-known art museums, such as the Van Gogh Museum or the Rijksmuseum, after touring the city by bike and canal boat, taking in the row houses and lush lanes. Although English is commonly used by most residents, Dutch is the official language in the Netherlands. The euro is the local currency.
Belfast The Titanic was originally built in Belfast, the city of Northern Ireland, where there are a few tourist attractions honouring the design, construction, and journey of the ship. Visit the Titanic Experience at the Titanic Quarter, which is located across the harbour from the port, if you’re interested. In Belfast Harbour, a few miles north of the city centre, ships dock. To explore city attractions like St. Anne’s Cathedral, take a taxi into the city. English is spoken and British pounds are used as currency in Belfast, which is a part of the United Kingdom.
