Make sure you pack your walking shoes for Edinburgh. Stroll along the medieval Royal Mile to the Palace of Holyroodhouse to see the abbey and Queen Mary’s chambers. Savor the old town’s marvelous Georgian and Victorian architecture. Marvel at the impressive Edinburgh Castle, high on its volcanic crag with a fabulous view.

This starkly beautiful island holds many ancient treasures like the mysterious Standing Stones of Stenness and the 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae, which was discovered with the furniture and indoor drains preserved. Make sure to visit the striking trio of St. Magnus Cathedral, the nearby ruins of the Earl’s Palace and Bishop’s Palace. After touring, stop in a pub to chow down on salmon and lamb dishes with the locals. And ask them about the wide range of Kirkwall’s specialty items, which includes cashmere, whiskey and crafts.

Port of Call
Cork (Ringaskiddy), Ireland
  • /sites/default/files/Port-RIN-MI.jpg

Ringaskiddy is your gateway to Cork, a city brimming with history and culture and is located in one of Ireland’s most stunning settings. Situated on the River Lee, which splits into two channels, Cork’s city center is split into islands. Bridges crisscross the city leading to many intriguing landmarks, including the gorgeous Gothic revival St. Fin Barr’s Cathedral, with its spiking spires and grimacing gargoyles, as well as the Tower at the Church of St. Anne, considered a symbol of the city—look for the 11-foot weather vane, a salmon, at the top. You’re also five miles away from the Blarney Castle. Head to the top of the castle and kiss the world-famous Blarney Stone while lying on your back with your head tilted backward. Doing so gives you the gift of the gab, or the gift of eloquent speech.

Port of Call
Portland, England
  • /sites/default/files/Ports-PTL-MI.jpg

Located along the English Channel, Portland is divided into two areas: north and south. The south end is where extensive stone quarries lie, a resource important to the region. Unique to the city is the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, which hosts world sailing championships.
