Can you see yourself on an adventure to the most talked about expedition?

June 22 - Southampton, United Kingdom  Embark

Sail from the very port that the Mayflower, Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Mary all departed on their maiden voyages Today Southampton is the cruise capital of Northern Europe, so expect a city that understands how to have fun. Authentic Tudor remains provide a fascinating insight to 15th century living while other landmarks date back even further. A stroll around the city is generous in its attractions, so there is no better way to see Southampton than on foot. Pre-historic enigma Stonehenge is less than an hour away while the quintessentially English market town Salisbury is perfect for a bit of shopping. Both are well worth a visit.

June 23 - Day at Sea 

Bridge: Morning Pairs Game & Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

June 24 - Newcastle, England  8am - 10pm

From Roman ruins to its more recent industrial days, Newcastle welcomes visitors with the unmissable modern sculpture, Sir Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North. This is public art on a massive scale at over 20ms high, a cherished landmark. The Discovery Museum, bursting with interactive displays, is a thoroughly modern place to learn all about the city’s past. Meanwhile, the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art is a hotspot for modern art lovers.  It’s a passionate city, bursting with character and it’s the friendly locals, "Geordies", that make Newcastle a truly special place to visit. 

Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

June 25 - Newhaven (Edinburgh), Scotland  8am - 11pm

Edinburgh is to London as poetry is to prose, as Charlotte Brontë once wrote. One of the world's stateliest cities and proudest capitals, it's built—like Rome—on seven hills, making it a striking backdrop for the ancient pageant of history. In a skyline of sheer drama, Edinburgh Castle watches over the capital city, frowning down on Princes Street’s glamour and glitz. But despite its rich past, the city’s famous festivals, excellent museums and galleries, as well as the modern Scottish Parliament, are reminders that Edinburgh has its feet firmly in the 21st century.

Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

June 26 - Aberdeen, United Kingdom  8am - 6pm

The Granite City sparkles like silver in the Scottish sunshine, and there is over 8,000 years’ worth of history to dig into in this pretty city of cobbled streets and hunched cottages. Aberdeen was forged by the granite quarried from its earth. Local stone is everywhere from the Houses of Parliament to Waterloo Bridge – but arguably the finest examples of the material’s beauty are in the city itself. The barnacled spikes of Marischal College - the world's second largest granite building – and the grand turreted masonry of the Town House leave a lasting impression. Johnston Gardens add some colour to the city’s canvas, and Old Aberdeen is a fairy-tale walk of cobbled streets and eccentric stone houses where no stone is the same, while the Footdee fishing village, or 'fittie' as the locals pronounce it, consists of historic leaning cottages and ramshackle huts for the city's fishing community.

Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

June 27 - Kirkwall, Orkew Islands, Scotland  8am - 11pm

Scattered just off the northern tip of Scotland, Kirkwall is a scenic archipelago of fascinating, dual heritage. The Viking influence is deep, while a prehistoric past and World War history adds to the endless stories that these dramatic islands have to tell. Sparse and beautiful, let the sweeping seascapes of frothing waves, and dance of the northern lights, enchant you as you explore. Windswept beaches are inhabited by whooping swans, while grassy cliffs hide puffins amid their wavy embrace. Sea caves and crumbling castles - and the dramatic meeting of the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean add to the romantic beauty of these lands, which may be physically close to the UK, but feel an entire world away.

Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

June 28 - Lerwick, Shetland Islands, Scotland  8am - 6pm

With incredible Neolithic history, spanning 5,000 years of human heritage, these islands, which sit just shy of the Arctic Circle, are an isolated and immense treasure trove of history and thrilling scenery. Look out over dramatic coastline from atmospheric Iron Age towers. Sweeping, windswept beaches and wisps of sand connect islands and rugged cliffs - home to some of the most adorable four-legged creatures you’ll ever meet, the diminutive and wavy-fringed, Shetland Ponies who roam the hills and reach a maximum size of 42 inches. The towering Broch of Mousa is perhaps Europe’s best-preserved Iron Age building - and one of the Shetland's finest brochs - a series of round, stone towers, believed to have been constructed around 100 BC. Seals and birdlife ensure that the isolated islands are always well-populated with life - and you can embark on hikes to discover their coastal homes. 
Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

June 29 - Day at Sea

Bridge: Morning Pairs Game & Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

June 30 - Djupivogur, Iceland 8am-11pm

Djupivogur is an uninhibited artistic hub - full of makers and creatives. Slow your pace and discover the refreshing approach to life that has made its trademark in this town. A place where hammers knock on metal in workshops, artists ladle paint onto canvases, and where you might spot a few Icelandic horses roaming across mountains. The most expansive project is the 34 egg sculptures that dot the coastline alongside lazy seals that daydream on the dark rock beaches. 

Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

July 1 - Seydisfjordur, Iceland 8am-5pm

A spectacular fjord lends the town its name, and the structures are dwarfed by this majestic setting, as they huddle around its glassy waters. Encounter sea lions, or try some fishing as you immerse yourself in this highlight of the wild and wonderful Eastfjords. The snow-capped Bjólfur mountain stands above the town and invites you to crunch along hiking trails amid untouched nature, rewarding with mesmerising views across the fjord and town below. These hills can literally sing thanks to a unique sculpture - which resonates with a traditional five-tone harmony. 

Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

July 2 - Akureyri, Iceland  9am-6pm

Akureyri is the gateway to a thrilling land of roaring waterfalls, soaring volcanoes and glorious wildlife. It lies a mere 60 miles from the Arctic Circle, but blossoms with a bright, cosmopolitan feel, and explodes into life during the summer months, when its outdoor cafes and open-air bathing spots fill up with visitors. Feel the thundering and shaking at ‘Waterfalls of the Gods’ or find some peace at the Botanical Gardens. The Akureyrarkirkja Church rises like a grand organ and is the town’s most striking landmark. The 112-step climb is worth the effort to see light flooding in through its narrow stain glass windows, spreading colorful patchworks across the interior.

Bridge: Afternoon Lesson & Pairs Game

July 3 - Patreksfiordur, Iceland 9am-6pm

Nearby, witness the majestic veil of Dynjandi waterfall, which fans out across 60 meters as it descends. Bird watchers will revel to find cliffside nests of puffins, gannets, guillemots, as well as razorbills. Rauðasandur beach is one of Iceland’s more unusual sights, a huge copper-red stretch of sand. Wander the dreamy shoreline, and photograph the remote, colorful collision of sea and sand.

Bridge: Afternoon Farewell Game

July 4 - Reykjavik, Iceland  Disembark AM

Reykjavik, on the coast of Iceland, is the country's capital and largest city.
