Take A Hike With Voyages of Discovery

Voyages of Discovery, which is renowned for its themed cruises, is offering a unique 'Footloose' programme of guided hikes on its 9-day Celtic Treasures cruise next May. The details are as follows:

Itinerary: Cruise from £1,099 per person, departing from Portsmouth on May 25 and calling at Foynes, Killybegs, Portrush, Dublin, Cobh and St Peter Port (Guernsey)  before returning to Portsmouth.

Description: The discovery cruise line offers guided ‘Footloose programmes’ where passengers can experience off-the-beaten-track routes in a number of inspiring and rarely visited locations – which only small ships such as Voyager can access. Keen walkers can join the ship’s experienced ‘Footloose’ guides to discover some of Ireland’s most picturesque landscapes including Glenveagh National Park, the rugged Causeway Coastline and Antrim’s Glens. The final port of call, St Peter’s Port, will also give passengers the opportunity to explore its cobbled streets, mammoth cliffs and hidden coves.

Or how about a two-week Themed Music Cruise on sister ship Discovery?

A Baltic Symphony: 14-day cruise departing May 22, from £1,699 per person:

Itinerary: Departs from Harwich and calls at Copenhagen, Turku, Tallinn, St Petersburg (overnight), Gdynia and Warnemunde

Description: Copenhagen – a delightful overture on this voyage featuring a score of fascinating Baltic cities. Enjoy the relaxed tempo of Turku before medieval Tallinn – Estonia’s legacy of the Hanseatic League. The intriguing composition of Poland’s ‘tri-cities’ is a delightful prelude to Warnemünde – a Baltic gateway to Berlin. Taking centre stage on this classical cruise, St Petersburg is irresistible to lovers of the arts, history and architecture

What’s included: Price includes transfers (where applicable), all on board gratuities, service charges and port taxes, a comprehensive Guest Speaker programme and all meals and entertainment on board. In addition, Voyages of Discovery has also introduced a new complimentary chauffeur service to the airport or port of departure for every guest choosing a higher grade cabin on Summer 2013 bookings.
