    Go Local - The Two of Scotland's Best in Edinburgh

    Experience the joys of two iconic Scottish activities: drinking a wee dram of whisky and playing the bagpipes.

    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at a downtown venue for a whisky tasting. The Scotch Malt Whisky Society will host the event, in which the whiskies will be served at cask strength. That means the drams will not have been subjected to chill filtration or any other interference that would alter their tastes.


    You will be served three drams, a dram being an eighth of a fluid ounce. The tasting will reveal the remarkable variety within the distillation processes and present the complexities that the different oak casks and aging times impart.


    Before each dram is sampled, one of the society’s members will describe the whisky’s characteristics. Some whiskies might taste spicy and dry while others may be heavily peated with strong smoky flavors. The experience will be enlightening and entertaining.


    Your immersion into the world of bagpipes will be just as fulfilling. Louise Marshall, one of Scotland’s most renowned pipers, will lead your workshop. She has played for Queen Elizabeth II and Pope Benedict XVI, and her instruction will be based on years of experience.


    Marshall will teach you basic chanter techniques, show you how bagpipes work and describe the instrument’s history. If you wish to look the part, Scottish attire such as kilts, sporrans and feather bonnets will be available.

    Visit the environmentally friendly House of the Future for a glance into how people might live more sustainably and talk to Berliners that are already doing it. The Futorium, as the house is also known, showcases green construction as it was built with technologies that maximize renewable energies. It also contains exhibits that will get you thinking about better and perhaps controversial ways to live in the future, and the obstacles that first need to be overcome. Later, you will meet some restaurateurs that only serve vegan and vegetarian dishes made with organic, sustainably grown ingredients. Some of that produce comes from community gardens that have popped up throughout Berlin. You may want to visit one of these for lunch on our own. You may talk to a few of those gardeners or to local farmers at a communal market. Berlin’s near obsession with eco-conscious goods extends into clothing, as you will discover while browsing stores with forward-thinking brands whose merchandise is ethically made and sustainable.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Browse the House of the Future in Berlin and learn about its sustainable technologies.
    • Get an idea how people might live in the future and make less of an environmental impact.
    • Converse with the owners of vegan restaurants or with community organic gardeners.
    • Meet shop owners whose merchandise is ethically made and sustainable.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    Explore parts of Edinburgh that are often overlooked but shouldn’t be, as these revitalized areas have become thriving destinations.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon reach Dean Village, a historical area of Edinburgh where grains were milled for 800 years. Once a separate village where many mill workers lived, it still seems vastly different from busier Edinburgh.


    Highlights include a 19th-century residential building for the mill workers known as Well Court and Dean Bridge, which spans the Water of Leith. Thomas Telford, the engineer behind the ingenious Caledonian Canal, designed the bridge. While meandering about, you might also see decorative mill stones and stone plaques with carvings of baked breads and pies, a nod to the grains used to make them.


    Continuing on, you will next explore Stockbridge, a village on the north edge of Edinburgh that is wonderfully bohemian and artsy. Landmarks include the Roman temple-inspired St. Bernard’s Well, whose waters supposedly have medicinal qualities, and the Stockbridge Colonies, a cluster of 19th-century stone homes that is really a village within a village.


    A leisurely walk to Leith follows. A port for more than 1,000 years, Leith has been thoughtfully renovated and revitalized, yet its historical character has remained intact. During the guided portion of your visit, you might see what was once the largest swing bridge in the United Kingdom, a 17th-century signal tower that was originally a windmill, and the statue of Roberts Burns. During free time, you can explore even further.

    The city of Oporto lies on the north bank of the Douro River, near where it meets the Atlantic Ocean and is the second largest city in Portugal. While it has always played an important role in international trade, Oporto's historic center has been recently recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


    Your tour begins with a lovely walk around the historic heart of Oporto where you will see many of the city's notable landmarks. Dating mainly from the 18th century when trade was booming and merchants were financing elegant homes for themselves and grand buildings for the city, the local architecture reflects the elaborate gilt-work of the baroque-style and the neoclassicism and romanticism of the 19th and 20th centuries. You will also have the opportunity to drive over the unique double-decker bridge which spans the Douro River, the work of the famous Parisian engineer Gustav Eiffel. At the conclusion of your city tour, you'll be given some free time to explore on your own or browse through some of the colorful local shops.


    Before returning to the ship, a final stop is made at one of the many port wine lodges that Oporto is internationally famous for. After an informative tour of the cellar where you will learn about the processes involved in creating fine port wine, you'll be treated to a wine tasting of some of their finest products.

    Help keep Zeebrugge’s coastline free from debris during a beach clean-up and then take the collected material to a facility that will convert it into green energy. The exact beach will be chosen the day of the excursion, but you can be sure it will be one of Zeebrugge’s most beautiful and popular stretches of sand. After about an hour of cleaning the beach, you will drive to nearby Oostende, where the collected debris will be taken to Biostoom, a biosteam plant that produces sustainable energy from waste. During the insider’s tour of the facility, you will gain an understanding of the fascinating process that creates green energy from household trash. You will learn how the debris is sorted and combusted in an eco-friendly way that makes enough steam to drive a generator and produce electricity. Steam power is just one of the sustainable energies that have made Belgium a leader in green energy.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Join a beach clean-up to help beautify one of Zeebrugge’s most popular stretches of sand.
    • Take the collected debris to Biostoom, a facility that produces steam power from waste.
    • Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of Biostoom to see firsthand how it creates green energy.

    Experience Bruges like a local by exploring areas off the beaten path but still in the shadow of landmarks such as Kruispoort. Although you will stop at this 15th-century gate, the sites that lie ahead will reveal a lesser-known but not less spectacular side of Bruges. You will see windmills along medieval ramparts, follow atmospheric lanes through residential neighborhoods and pause at the bridges and inner canals that gave Bruges its nickname, the Venice of the North. Upon arriving in St. Anne’s, you will behold the Jerusalem Chapel, which was designed to mirror the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. By the 16th century, Bruges had become a textile center for woven lace, and you will observe a demonstration of this artisan trade that continues to flourish. Another way to become immersed in local life is at the Markt, a sprawling square that has been a marketplace for more than 1,000 years.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Explore atmospheric areas of Bruges that are typically unknown to all but the locals.
    • Cross landmark canals that gave Bruges its nickname, the Venice of the North.
    • Watch a demonstration of lace making, a trade that has flourished in Bruges for centuries.

    Gain a greater understanding of Northern Ireland and its culture by following a foodie guide through Belfast, pausing every so often to sample classic dishes and delicacies.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon reach the heart of Belfast, where you will commence a walking tour, accompanied by a local food enthusiast. The exact locations to be visited will be determined the day of the excursion, but they will definitely be establishments that best represent the cuisine of Northern Ireland. These will be the markets, restaurants and cafés that the locals frequent, rather than those typically found in guide books.


    You may well start at St. George’s Market, the oldest covered market on the entire island of Ireland. While browsing the stalls and soaking up the atmosphere, you will sample delicacies that are distinctly Irish. You may be offered a chunk of fried eel or a bite of Belfast bap, a hearty sandwich typically loaded with Irish bacon, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese.


    Continuing on to other foodie locales, you might try a few spoonfuls of colcannon, a mixture of mashed potatoes, cabbage, cream and butter. Of course, potatoes appear in all sorts of classic dishes such as Irish stew, Ulster fry and boxty, a tasty potato pancake.


    Other Irish staples that you may sample include fluffy soda bread and wheaten farls. The latter is a griddle cake that is served in quarters known as farls.

    Cruise into the North Sea to a large offshore wind park that greatly contributes to Belgium’s ambitious sustainable energy goals. Before you head out to sea from Blankenberge harbor, you will hear about Belgium’s commitment to wind power, how wind turbines work and their effect on the climate and marine life. The country has embraced the development of wind parks because other means of energy emit excessive carbon dioxide and importing electricity has its limitations. It will be quite the experience to view the dozens of offshore wind turbines up close from the comfort of the boat. They soar high above the water and continuously generate power by optimizing the available wind. As part of your immersion into clean energy, you will see how the power is transported to shore for distribution.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Observe offshore wind turbines up close from a boat that provides a unique perspective.
    • Learn the benefits of wind power and why Belgium is so committed to its development.
    • See how the power from the offshore wind turbines is transported to shore.

    Enjoy an insider’s look at life in Edam by visiting a local family and touring a cheese-making facility to see how Edam’s famed cheese is produced. An enlightening walking tour will introduce you to the city, where you will see St. Nicholas Church and the Edam Museum, which occupies an 18th-century sea captain’s house. For a deeper understanding of life in Edam, you will stop by a centuries-old residence and enjoy coffee and cake with the owners. They will elaborate on the long history of their home, how Edam has changed just in their lifetimes and what the future may hold. Still, it is impossible to escape the draw of cheese in Edam. More than a quarter of the cheese produced in the Netherlands is the city’s namesake cheese, a soft variety made with less milk fat than most other cheeses. While touring a cheese-making facility in town, you will watch the process and then taste samples.

    Escorted around town by a local, you’ll be introduced to life in Greenland’s eighth-largest fishing village. Suffice it to say, rush hour is no big challenge in this burg. But living in Paamiut has its rewards for the 1,500-or-so souls who call it home. Their scattered skyline is colorful, their blue-black mountain backdrop is stunning – they even have a handsome stave church, one hotel and a supermarket. The fishing is excellent, the mitten-makers are busy, and the wildlife is contented. Minke and humpback whales swim by in the fjord, while white-tailed sea eagles (Greenlanders call them “Nattoralik”) guard the sky and bring good luck to those who spot them. On your town walk you’ll visit a local family and perhaps strike up conversations with friendly shopkeepers and others. A stop at a workshop that crafts coats from sealskin will provide a glimpse into the unique local economy – in Greenland, seal meat is a mainstay in the diet and no by-products are wasted.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Stroll the streets of tiny Paamiut with a local who knows its story and residents personally. • Be on the lookout for exciting wildlife, from majestic sea eagles in the sky to whales in the fjord. • Visit a workshop where sealskin is crafted into mittens and coats in classic Greenland fashion. less
