Begin with a flight to London, a city with a splendid mix of old elegance and innovation. Tailor your holiday by using your Oyster Pass for the tube or bus to begin your exploration! From historical landmarks, contemporary galleries and trendy shops, London wins the Queen’s clap! Take in a Broadway show performance to round out your stay.

Set out on the Atlantic aboard the Norwegian Jade, completely remodelled in 2017 and award-winning for luxury. Our first stop: Lerwick, a vibrant city of the Shetland Islands where Scandinavian is more prominent than Scot. Sea lochs, moorlands, beaches, and towering rock formations sculpted by the wind await!

After Reykjavik (see next page), we cross the ocean for the rugged hills of St. John’s harbour. Take a steep stroll along candy-coloured row houses up to Signal Hill’s Cabot Tower. In Halifax, absorb the Maritimes’ Celtic culture and visit the star-shaped Citadel and the Waterfront Warehouses. Portland’s Old Port water-front has working fishing wharves and converted warehouses with restaurants and shops. Don’t miss the West End’s Victoria Mansion museum!

Your cruise ends in… New York, New York! “gonna be a part of it!” The DeNure coach awaits to show you Manhattan’s Empire State Building and Central Park, Ellis Island’s Immigration Museum and Statue of Liberty, and the National 9/11 Memorial Museum. Do it all in the city that never sleeps!

Say farewell to New York City and stop in Norman Rockwell’s quaint hometown of Stockbridge, before you return home.

 

Included Excursion in Reykjavik, Iceland

Near the top of the world, Iceland is a country of contrasts: volcanic fire and glacial ice, colourful cities surrounded by silver seas and black lava.

Ice covers only 10% of Iceland, but the glaciers are a source of pure water and a symbol of national pride. The creative cultural hub of Iceland, Reykjavik is the starting point of your adventure. Reykjavik’s energetic downtown is home to a thriving arts scene and is renowned for its Viking museums, nightlife, and geothermal power. The Settlement Exhibition is built around an unearthed Viking Longhouse, and the National Museum holds Iceland’s remarkable artifacts.

We’ll see the hot springs and geysers of the Geothermal Fields and the serene Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most-visited attraction. A perfect 38°C, the Blue Lagoon’s milky-blue water comes from 2000 metres below the earth, picking up silica (which makes it blue) and minerals on its journey to the surface. Soothe your skin, body, and soul in its re-energizing bath!
