London, England (Pre-Trip)

FROM $1,099 PER PERSON | 3 DAYS | $366 PER DAY

London's gems are as plentiful as those on the Crown Jewels and you’ll discover many of them when you enhance your base tour with extra time in the United Kingdom’s capital. Your Superior First-Class hotel is just steps away from some of the world’s best shopping, dining, and museums, and you’ll enjoy an included visit to the renowned British Museum and the chance to visit the celebrated city of Oxford and the birthplace of Winston Churchill on an optional tour. From classic pubs to world-renowned neighborhoods like Notting Hill, see why London has something spectacular for everyone!

Your Price Includes:
  • 2 additional nights accommodations at the Kimpton Fitzroy London (or similar)
  • 3 additional meals: 2 breakfasts, 1 dinner
  • Entrance to the British Museum
  • All transfers and baggage handling (where permitted)
  • Services of a Cruise Director and local guides

  • Services of the Vantage Worldwide Concierge, to plan celebrations, activities, or provide regional expertise. Log into My Portfolio and submit a request, or send an email any time up to two weeks prior to your departure at Concierge@vantagetravel.com

Please note: The day-to-day itinerary for this extension blends in some features that would otherwise occur during the London land portion of your main cruise tour program. This is done merely to ensure the most logical, relaxed, and efficient pacing. By the time you embark ship on the main cruise tour itinerary, you will have experienced all the main tour inclusions as well as your two extra extension days.

DAY 4:

Leisure in London

Enjoy a day at leisure in London to explore on your own. Visit a coterie of museums, head to the famous Harrods or Marks & Spencer for some shopping, or join a full-day optional tour to Oxford and Blenheim Palace.

Throughout the day, your fellow cruise tour travelers will be arriving. You’ll meet them this evening at a welcome briefing and dinner.

Optional Tour: Oxford & Blenheim Palace

Oxford & Blenheim Palace

  • Approximate Cost: $199 USD per person

A day of visual riches awaits on this all-day combination tour to Oxford, “the city of dreaming spires,” home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world, as well as stunning Blenheim Palace, ancestral home of the Dukes of Marlborough and birthplace of Winston Churchill. Starting in Oxford, take a tour through the medieval center and the university, including the Old Covered Market, the Radcliff Camera, the Bodlean Library, Christchurch Chapel, and the quad and interior of one of the colleges. (Note that interior visits to the college are dependent on their opening times, which are not published until a few days before.) Stop for lunch on your own and leisure time in Oxford. Then, just a short drive away is Blenheim Palace, set among some of the most famous gardens in England. Your visit includes a tour of the palace interior, the Winston Churchill Museum, the palace’s painting and tapestry collection, and more. You’ll also have time to stroll the grounds, with lakes, lawns, and gardens that are considered some of the finest works of Capability Brown, the English landscaping pioneer.


DAY 5:

Inside the British Museum

Visit the British Museum, dedicated to much of human history, art, and culture. The first national public museum in the world houses an eye-opening 8 million artifacts spanning some six millennia. Enjoy a guided tour this morning, then take in more of London on your own before a free afternoon.

Tomorrow, you will rejoin your larger base tour group and proceed with Day 4 of your Poole-Copenhagen cruise tour.

FROM $999 PER PERSON | 3 DAYS | $333 PER DAY

Give yourself three extra nights in charming Copenhagen — a cultural capital of Scandinavia and a true gastronomical powerhouse. Whether you’re sipping a steaming brew as part of the city’s intrinsic coffee culture, wandering the Norrebro neighborhood on your way toward the Nyhavn canal’s colorful row houses, or taking a dip in the outdoor canal pools at Islands Brygge, there’s plenty to do during ample free time. And you’ll gain insight into local culture during an excursion to a charming fishing village. There is no better way to see more of Denmark at the best value.

Your Price Includes:
  • 2 additional nights accommodations at the Tivoli Copenhagen Hotel (or similar)
  • 3 additional meals: 2 breakfasts, 1 dinner
  • Excursion to the fishing village of Dragør

DAY 3:

Copenhagen walking tour, free time to explore

Why do Danes consistently rank as “the happiest people in the world,” according to the UN’s World Happiness Report? Your panoramic tour of charming, friendly Copenhagen may give you a clue, as you view the famed Little Mermaid statue on her watery perch, visit the Nyhavn canal district, swing by towered and turreted Rosenborg Castle, and contrast that with the more-dignified Amalienborg Castle where Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II resides today. Part of your tour includes a scenic canal boat ride, and you’ll see how Copenhagen’s residents make use of these historic channels.

Cultural Discovery: From renowned Noma restaurant to an up-cropping of other Michelin-starred gems, food has become Copenhagen’s main attraction! On a visit to a local food market, you’ll see what the locals are cooking up, while tasting the freshest fare and interacting with the people who live here, shop here, and grow the items sold here. Lunch is on your own here, too, and you can browse some 60 stalls for everything from tacos to tapas, sushi to salad. After, enjoy the rest of the day at leisure, with dinner on your own so you can experience more of what this gastronomical capital is doing.

Included Meals:

Breakfast

DAY 4:

Malmö optional tour by train, or explore Copenhagen on your own

Enjoy more free time to explore Copenhagen on your own — or, cross another destination off your list as you embark on an optional full-day train excursion to Malmö. Your tour includes a trek over the famous Oresund Bridge, an engineering marvel that dramatically cut the journey time between Sweden and Denmark. Lunch and dinner are on your own today, which is a golden opportunity to try a Michelin-starred restaurant or a few smørrebrød, famous Danish open-faced sandwiches, traditionally savored with a beer or aquavit.

Throughout the day, your fellow cruise tour travelers will be arriving. You’ll meet them this evening at a Welcome Briefing and Dnner. Tomorrow, as they acclimate with a city tour, you still have one more included feature of your pre-trip extension to enjoy: your morning excursion to Dragør.

DAY 5:

Visiting Dragør village

This morning we set off for an excursion to Dragør, a picturesque fishing village on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Your guide will escort you along the narrow, cobbled lanes lined with yellow houses and red-tiled rooftops, and we’ll pause to sample some local refreshments. Back in Copenhagen, the balance of the day is free. Perhaps you’ll be inspired at the Danish Museum of Art and Design, or shop along the Strøget pedestrian zone.

Tomorrow, you will rejoin your larger base tour group and proceed with Day 4 of your Copenhagen-Poole cruise tour.
