13 Day England & Northern Europe

  • Discover the highlights of 5 amazing countries
  • Visit France, Netherlands, Germany & more
Includes return international flights & cruise

A European ocean cruise is always a good idea - the history, beauty, and luxury are second to none. Exploring exotic and iconic ports by day, lounging poolside on the lido deck with a fruity cocktail (or two) in the late afternoon, and indulging in Michelin-worthy cuisine as the ship makes its way to the next stunning destination. What’s not to love? Though it’s been a while between sailings, this late-2022 package with return flights included has all the makings of an unforgettable holiday.

Begin with three days at leisure in London. You could take in Buckingham Palace, head up to see the view from The Shard lookout, visit Westminster Abbey. The choice is yours! Then, make your way up to Southampton to embark on your seven night MSC cruise of Northern Europe. Visit Zeebrugge, linked to the medieval city of Bruges; admire the bold and modern architecture of Rotterdam, the second largest city of the Netherlands; dock in Hamburg, where the grand boulevards and stately buildings feel like you’ve been transported back in time - and more!

Package includes return international flights, a seven night cruise aboard the ‘MSC Magnifica’ ship, three nights centrally located 4-star hotel accommodation, and 20 meals.
