Great Way to See the British Isles!
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Cobh is a darling little town. The museum just as you get off the ship is excellent! Info about building the Titanic, and lots about the trials of the Irish. We walked all over Cobh, seeing the beautiful cathedral, and then hired a taxi to take us to see the Blarney Castle and a bit of Cork. Blarney Castle itself is sitting in a gorgeous setting, even if you don't want to kiss the Blarney stone. You need to be fairly fit to climb the castle.
At Greenock/Glasgow, we took the tour bus to see the Falkirk Wheel and the town of Stirling. Both were wonderful. We toured the Stirling Castle. It is being restored, so couldn't see all of it. Ate lunch at the Portcullis restaurant.
At Invergordon, we took a bus into Inverness and had a great day on our own. Found a pub with the family name so had lunch there. There is a great little shopping mall tucked inside a block in the main part of town where we did much of our memento shopping. There is a beautiful river all through the town, and we walked across it on a walking bridge. Less
Cabin review: BDB625 Balcony
Nice cabin, with upgrade to balcony which was great. Plenty of closet space, and bathroom very adequate. Center of ship, across from crew space, but not terribly noisy.Read All Balcony (BD) Reviews >>

My husband and brother went to see Normandy this same day. They had a wonderful time and would recommend it, even though of course there isn't enough time to see everything.
