There are lots of options, but we weren't really interested on those. Although the bands in open venues were excellent.

Loved the cabin. Really fun to stand on the balcony and watch the pilot boats lead us out into open water, and listen to the bagpiper band perform on the dock. Or just sit and read. This was our first cruise with a balcony; totally worth it!

Ship tip

If you like to drink ... wine, beer, water, scotch, whatever... definitely upgrade to premium beverage package. Too expensive to do otherwise.

St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands

We went to the Guernsey Military Occupation Underground Hospital. Do the Castle tour instead.

Cobh (Cork), Ireland Did not visit port

Jameson tour was totally fun.

Dunmore East (Waterford), Ireland

5 out of 5

Dun Laoghaire (Dublin), Ireland

3 out of 5
Not in port long enough to really get the feeling of Dublin ... nightlife and music. This would be a great port to spend overnight. Book of Kells at Trinity college - on my bucket list - disappointing. And Dublin "castle' is not a castle in the medieval sense of the word.

Liverpool, England

5 out of 5
Museum of Liverpool fascinating. We did a tour of an old pilot ship. Now we know all about that.

Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland

3 out of 5
3 of 4 did Edinburgh tour. Good thing we booked through ship because there was an accident on roadway. 10 buses stuck in traffic; but we waited for everyone to get back.

Le Havre (Paris), France

5 out of 5
Honfleur was beautiful.

Dover (London), England

5 out of 5
Dover Castle was amazing, especially if you are an English/Dunkirk history buff.
