    Cruise Northern Europe

    from 6 May 2020 to 13 May 2020
    8 days / 7 nights

    Departure Port : London
    Arrival Port : Portsmouth

    Ship : LE DUMONT-D'URVILLE

    • Ref : U060520

    Board Le Dumont-d’Urville for a journey along the southern coast of England. On this all-new 8-day cruise, you will discover the melancholy beauty of nature in these parts, from wild creeks to long sand or pebble beaches, lush hills, charming fishing villages and steep cliffs sculpted by the wind and sea.

    Departing from London, your first port of call will be Dover, famous for its white limestone cliffs. Then the Isle of Wight will reveal its picture-postcard landscapes, sometimes bathing in the sun’s rays and at other times shrouded in mist. Queen Victoria used to holiday on this island, a great deal of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    Your ship will then drop anchor at the Isles of Scilly, a strange, small archipelago where long fine-sand beaches run alongside lush, green meadows, overlooked by the ruins of old castles sitting imposingly on the hilltops.

    Then you will make your way to Dartmouth, a charming town tucked away in the heart of the stunning décor formed by the mouth of the Dart. You will discover its old pastel-coloured fishermen’s houses and some half-timbered buildings. Then you will visit Poole, a town renowned for its large natural harbour.

    Lying just off Englandメs south coast, the Isle of Wight has been a popular holiday spot since Queen Victoria decided to spend her summers here. Osborne House, the vast Italianate villa she had built, is now open to the public. The east of the island is rimmed by splendid beaches bordered by quaint seaside resorts. In the west, thereメs a change of scenery: Alum Bayメs distinctive sandstone cliffs and the famous Needles, three rocky spurs rising out of the sea. A temperate climate coupled with rural landscapes and pretty villages make the Isle of Wight a charming destination.

    Nestling in the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, at the south west tip of Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly form a small British island chain whose climate, landscapes and lifestyle are unlike any other and seem to have come straight from an Enid Blyton story. Here, everything resembles a tropical paradise. The long sandy beaches run alongside lush green meadows teeming with semi-exotic flowers, whilst the ruins of ancient castles loom from the tops of the hills. Veritable havens of peace that inspired the legendary Avalon of King Arthur, they are today listed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the rugged coastline plays host to wildlife that is as varied as it is exceptional, including the very rare Atlantic grey seal.

    Disembarkation 13/05/2020 at 07H00 .

    Located to the south-east of London, Portsmouth is one of the three most important military ports in England. This maritime tradition takes shape in the Historic Dockyard, the home of Portsmouth's arsenal, where emblematic ships are to be found, including HMS Victory, captained by Admiral Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar. The home town of Charles Dickens, and the adopted home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the celebrated adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Portsmouth is not short of attractions with its parks, sea fronts and city walls. Do not miss the view over the city from the Spinnaker Tower, taking the form of a great sail and soaring from 170 metres into the air, making it one of the highest monuments in the United Kingdom.
