Amsterdam, Netherlands (7:00 AM–4:00 PM)
Welcome to the “Venice of the Netherlands.” Explore Amsterdam on your own or on one of the organized shore excursions: visit the Anne Frank House where Anne and her family lived in hiding during World War II or the Van Gogh Museum with its vast collection of paintings, or cruise the Grachtengordel district.
Southampton, England (9:00 AM–8:00 PM)
Today’s port of call is Southampton, which is located on the southern coast of England at an inlet where the rivers Test, Itchen, and Hamble flow into the sea. The port is perhaps most prominently known as the origin point of RMS Titanic’s infamous maiden voyage to the New World. Archaeological finds suggest that the area has been inhabited since the Stone Age and was an important trade center over the centuries due to its strategic location on the English Channel and proximity to France and continental Europe. Artifacts in Southampton’s Old Town, including a long stretch of unbroken medieval defensive walling and the 800 year old Bargate, serve as a fascinating reminder of the city’s rich history. Join an optional excursion to Britain’s capital city of London with famous Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, home of the British Royal Family.
Today relax, unwind and enjoy the fabulous amenities aboard the Breakaway.
Cork, Ireland (8:00 AM–5:00 PM)
Ireland's third largest city is a wonderful walking city built on the River Lee. Visit Blarney Castle, one of Ireland’s oldest and most historic castles. Explore and perhaps even climb the 125 steps of the spiral staircase, perhaps kiss the Blarney Stone, so you can, as tradition says, acquire the “Gift of the Gab.” Or join another shore excursion that lets you experience Ireland's beautiful scenery, charming towns, flavors, and musical tradition.
Day 9 & 10
As the Breakaway leaves the Celtic Sea behind and sails south into the Atlantic Ocean, enjoy two days at sea and live the "Freestyle Cruising" lifestyle.
Ponta Delgada, Azores (8:00 AM–5:00 PM)
Today we visit Ponta Delgada, the largest city in the Azores, a group of nine volcanic islands belonging to Portugal. Located in the mid-Atlantic Ocean, 930 miles west of the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, the Azores offer a mild climate along with miles of sandy beaches rimmed with vineyards and flower fields. Boasting many impressive churches, convents, and majestic white houses, visitors are constantly reminded of Ponta Delgada’s wealthy and illustrious past, when the port was a crucial staging post between Europe and the New World during the Age of Discovery in the 15th and 16th centuries.
Recreate the glory of past days as you sail across the Atlantic Ocean and relive the Golden Age of Trans-Oceanic travel.
