With a whole world to discover, it is all too easy to forget the treasures we have right on our doorstep in the United Kingdom. Allow Ambassador Cruise Line to remind you with a cruise itinerary of Great Britain that shines some light onto the most fascinating corners of our diverse nation. Focusing on cruising Britain’s many beautiful islands, we will take you from the tranquillity of Tobermory in Mull, with its charming rainbow-hued buildings, to the quaint capital of St. Peter Port in Guernsey, where England meets France amid a picture-postcard landscape.
Our unique itineraries on a British Isles cruise take you to remote, far-flung islands, iconic and vibrant cities as well as charming coastal towns. Made up of over 6,000 islands boasting spectacular coastlines and beautiful landscapes, the British Isles is rich in diverse cultures, customs, and traditions, making for a charming cruise destination.
Our round Britain cruises offer a fantastic opportunity to explore some of the best of both Britain and Ireland and uncover the fascinating history that has bequeathed our island nation with a remarkable heritage.
Some of your cruise highlights with us will include the likes of Portree on the Isle of Skye, where you will feel like you’ve entered a Tolkienesque fantasy landscape upon Skye’s surreal crags and peaks One thing you can be sure of here is a warm welcome from the down-to-earth locals in the capital of Portree. Then there are the hidden pleasures of the St Mary’s in the Isles of Scilly; a subtropical paradise off the coast of Cornwall. Little more than six square miles, St Mary’s is the largest of the islands, with an atmosphere that is unlike anything you will experience on the mainland.
The Channel Islands are truly charming locations with Guernsey’s St. Peter Port being a major highlight. Quainter and more unspoilt than its near neighbour St. Helier, St. Peter Port is part Francophile fishing port, part-bustling capital – and a playground for the wealthy, who know a good thing when they see it.
