What to Expect

Activity Level

Takes into consideration the physical requirements for each of the trips, walking, hiking, climbing in and out of safari vehicles etc.
           Moderate

Travelers should be able to climb 60 stairs consecutively, plus walk at least 3 miles over some steep slopes and loose or uneven surfaces without difficulty. Walks typically last for 3 or more hours at a time. Altitude can range from 5,000 to 7,000 feet.

Pacing

Takes into consideration the length of bus rides, flights, number of destinations in the number of days
           Moderate

Pacing is sometimes robust, and may include several long days with early hotel departures, active sightseeing and evening activities. Opportunities for daytime rest and rejuvenation may be limited on most days. May include significant motor coach time, two or more on-tour flights, and/or occasional travel via non-traditional means such as safari vehicles, Zodiac ship tenders, rickshaws/pedi-cabs, etc.

PACING:
  • This adventure is moderately paced
  • Your 11-day cruise includes 4 nights total at a centrally-located Dublin hotel at the beginning and end of your trip
  • In addition to your arrival and departure in Dublin, you'll visit 9 ports of call in Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Wales
  • We often cruise overnight but some scenic sailing will be conducted during daylight hours

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS
  • You should be in relatively good health to fully enjoy this tour
  • This journey does not entail walking for great distances, but you will be on your feet for up to four hours for half-day excursions and eight hours for full-day excursions
  • Most city sightseeing takes place on air-conditioned coaches and city walking tours with guides
  • There are several walking tours through historic centers and villages where uneven steps and cobblestones should be expected
  • This cruise tour is not suitable for those who have difficulty walking or require wheelchairs or other mobility aids. Please refer to Vantage's wheelchair and handicapped traveler policy

TERRAIN & TRANSPORTATION
  • Your ship is your main means of transportation between destinations
  • All land transportation is conducted on board deluxe, air-conditioned motorcoaches

CLIMATE
  • Expect temperate to warm weather in many destinations on this journey. Please note that it can get chilly at night, so bring a lightweight sweater or jacket for the evening. Please check the weather prior to your departure for the most up-to-date weather predictions
  • Bring a light rain jacket and/or umbrella
  • At sea it can occasionally be windy. A windbreaker, sweater, or light jacket is recommended

Please note: Ocean-cruising is not the same experience as river cruising; as such, you may experience fluctuating tides and weather patterns that may involve some rocking of your vessel. Itineraries will include all activities as planned except in extreme cases that can’t be controlled by your shipboard crew. Day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Cruise Director or regional expert.
