Featuring Guest Speakers:
Experience the rich traditions and astonishing beauty of the British Isles and Northern France’s storied coastline during this
Celtic Lands voyage. By exclusive arrangement, walk the hallowed D-Day beaches of Normandy with Dwight David Eisenhower II, grandson of General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and meet Allen Packwood, an expert on British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Director of the Churchill Archives Centre and a Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, England. Professor Eisenhower and Mr. Packwood will join us for a portion of the cruise to lecture and share their insights regarding two of the most influential figures of the 20th century.
Our specially designed Celtic Lands itinerary explores the lands and seas traversed by the Iron Age tribes known as the Celts, along with their enduring influence and captivating historical legacies. Their immeasurable contributions to the culture of Europe’s civilizations are surrounded in mystery and folklore and are rooted in a wealth of art, science and legend. Cruise the waters of the Irish and Celtic Seas and sail across the English Channel aboard the exclusively chartered, Five-Star, small ship Le Boréal—featuring only 110 Suites and Staterooms—to explore cities, villages and islands that abound with Celtic heritage, calling at ports inaccessible to larger vessels.
Discover Scotland’s misty, seldom-visited Inner Hebridean Islands; admire the austere beauty of the Scottish Highlands aboard the Jacobite steam train, better recognized as Harry Potter’s Hogwarts™ Express, and one of the great railway journeys of the world; and call on the majestic Isle of Skye, where the traditional Gaelic language is still spoken today. In North Wales, follow in the footsteps of medieval and modern princes and enjoy a private, specially arranged musical performance by the renowned Welsh Maelgwyn Choir. In Dublin, Ireland, view treasures of Celtic heritage and experience the lively delights of traditional Irish song and dance.
