Day to Day Itinerary:
Day 1: Dublin, Ireland:
Boarding the ship in Dublin you will have the chance to explore this great city or settle into the lavish surroundings of the 5* Celebrity Eclipse.
Birthplace to a host of renowned writers such as Oscar Wilde and W.B Yeats, the friendly Irish capital is literally steeped in culture. But it’s just as famous for ‘black nectar’ – Guinness.
Day 2: At Sea:
A day at sea is the perfect time to explore our one-of-a-kind Lawn Club. Relax in the sun, enjoy a drink, or even a picnic, all with real grass between your toes.
Day 3-4: Le Harve, France:
A Unesco World Heritage Site since 2005, Le Havre is a love letter to modernism, evoking, more than any other French city, France’s postwar energy and optimism. All but obliterated in September 1944 by Allied bombing raids that killed 3000 civilians, the centre was completely rebuilt by the Belgian architect Auguste Perret, whose bright, airy modernist vision remains, miraculously, largely intact. Attractions include a museum full of captivating impressionist paintings, a soaring church with a mesmerising stained-glass tower, and hilltop gardens with views over the city.
Le Harve can be a setting off point for excursions to the French capital, Paris. The allure of the ‘capital of style’ is legendary – haute couture combined with haute cuisine. Innumerable museums, and just as many famous parks sit alongside architectural icons like the Eiffel Tower.
Day 5: At Sea:
Onboard Celebrity Cruises, dining in one of our speciality restaurants is a must. Why not try Murano? Sumptuous surroundings, impeccable service, and outstanding French cuisine.
Days 6-7: Liverpool, UK:
Liverpool is heaven for sport and music lovers, and it also happens to host the UK’s largest collection of museums and galleries outside London. Visit iconic Beatles sites like Penny Lane.
Days 8: Belfast, Northern Ireland:
Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland, and provides the perfect opportunity to experience true Irish culture. There’s no shortage of things to do, from to-die-for boutiques to local restaurants.
Day 9: Waterford (Dunmore East), Ireland:
From Dunmore East, the bustling city of Waterford is just over 17km away. As Ireland’s oldest city, Vikings settled here in 914 A.D. Parts of the old walls remain.
Day 10: Cobh (Cork), Ireland:
Navigate Cork’s hilly streets and discover the melody of Ireland’s most talkative citizenry, who have a way of making conversation. Visit local artisans and witness their skills in weaving and cutting crystal.
Day 11: St. Peter Port, Guernsey:
Saint Peter Port is 24 square miles of unspoiled British isle, overlooking the harbour. Stroll along cliff-side paths and through the interior. Take a deep breath and soak in the peaceful ambiance.
Day 12: At Sea:
On your cruise, make sure you take in a show in our Main Theatre. Cutting-edge productions from fairy tales to comedies, stadium-style concerts to musical theatre. There’s something for everyone.
Day 13: Amsterdam, Netherlands:
Amsterdam is a mix of old and new, historical charm and cosmopolitan flair. It’s a blend of cultures, but quintessentially Dutch. People-watching is rewarding; the quest for rich history even more so.
Your cruise ends today as you disembark the ship to be transferred to the airport for your flight home.
