Despite suffering extensive damage during World War II, the 379-year-old city of Southampton has retained some of its historic charm and reinvented itself as a twenty-first century shopping destination. The core of the modern port city is the Civic Centre, a short walk east of the train station and home to the excellent Southampton City Art Gallery, which is particularly strong on contemporary British artists. The Western Esplanade runs alongside the best remaining sections of the old city walls.  Take a chance to visit the great city of London on an optional shore excursion.

Belfast has a pace and bustle you’ll find nowhere else in Northern Ireland. At first glance Belfast closely resembles Liverpool, Glasgow or any other industrial port across the water, yet look a little closer and you’ll soon discover a city which dances to its own beat. The ill-fated cruise ship Titanic was built in the city’s now largely defunct shipyards. A fascinating, interactive museum dedicated to the Titanic can be found on the waterfront.

Reykjavik is mirrored in the waters of its bay, which is evident when your cruise ship sets anchor in the port. The quays along the seafront host a variety of shops, live music clubs and cafés.  Take a stroll down Frakkastigur up to Laekjartorg, to admire the Solfar, also known as the Sun Voyager, a large modern steel sculpture by Jon Gunnar Arnason, that represents a Viking vessel. 

Step back in time as you reach the historic centre, in the districts of Adalstraeti and Sudurgata, where you can still see the remains of some primitive Icelandic dwellings. Also the church of Hallgrimur, probably the most important architectural monument in Reykjavik, is worth a visit.

Nova Scotia is one of the most spectacular landscapes on the Canadian Atlantic coast; a true paradise for nature lovers who can admire moose, eagles, and go whale watching to see the numerous types of cetaceans living in the surrounding seas. Located on a fjord of Spanish Bay, Sydney is the largest urban centre on the island of Cape Breton. The attractions of the city are mainly related to its Scottish heritage. In fact, it is a diverse mix of nationalities that put on various Canadian cultural events of Scottish or Eastern European origin throughout the year.

Canada is a vast country offering tourists a diverse number of wonderful attractions to see and explore. One of those not to be missed is Halifax, the capital city of Nova Scotia. Each city has a symbol that represents it more than anything else: for Halifax, its star-shaped citadel dating back to the late 18th century, famous in Canada both for its beauty and for its historical importance. Inside the citadel, museum staff dress as soldiers of the army and navy, discover the clothes used in the past and other items in maritime activities.

New York is a wonderful port of call, a city of surprising history and culture. Hidden gardens, modern skyscrapers, galleries filled with priceless pieces tucked away in medieval-style cloisters… it offers so many opportunities for discovery. Wandering through the patchwork of neighbourhoods is as great a thrill as any single sight. Perhaps try espresso in a shabby-chic Williamsburg café or take in the view from the rooftop at Chelsea’s High Line or a ride on the “A” to Far Rockaway.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER

Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop.

They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
