Cruise for eight nights aboard the exclusively chartered, deluxe M.S. LE BORÉAL from Honfleur, France, to Ireland, Wales and Scotland. By special arrangement, University of Pennsylvania professor Dwight David Eisenhower II, grandson of General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and historian Celia Sandys, granddaughter of Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, will join you to provide exclusive lectures and personal insights. Enjoy guided excursions in each port of call, including the the D-Day landing beaches in Normandy and the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Caernarfon Castle near Holyhead, Wales, and the Neolithic Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae on the Orkney Islands. View treasures of rich Celtic heritage in Dublin, including the Book of Kells; walk in the footsteps of medieval and present-day princes in North Wales; and lose yourself in the austere beauty of Scotland's Highlands and the Inner Hebrides isles of Iona, Mull and Skye. Complement your cruise with the two-night Paris Pre-Cruise Option and the two-night Edinburgh Post-Cruise Option. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will sell out quickly!
This trip will also feature Skidmore Associate Professor of History, Tillman Nechtman.
