When Your Ships Come In…

When Your Ships Come In…

Yes, in the plural. For Irish travel agents, their ship will come in on the double on Friday 1st June 2012 when Azamara Club Cruises’ Azamara Journey and Silversea Cruises’ Silver Explorer will both be visiting Dublin Port.

Azamara Journey

Azamara Journey

The 694-guest Azamara Journey will be on a 12-night cruise that departs Southampton on 29th May, calling in at St Peter Port in the Channel Islands and the Isles of Scilly before docking in Dublin on 1st June. Then it’s on to Holyhead in Wales and the Isle of Skye (Portree), Kirkwall, Invergordon, and Edinburgh (Leith) in Scotland, before arriving in Amsterdam on 10th June.

Lorraine Quinn, Azamara Club Cruises’ Sales Manager Ireland & Northern Ireland, said: “We are excited that Azamara Journey will be sailing from Dublin again. The ship stopped in the capital last year and guests will be able to sample an Irish welcome before enjoying an unsurpassed cruising experience with the added convenience offered by the easy-to-get-to Dublin Port close to the city centre.

“Early booking through our partners at Cruise Broker is recommended for a holiday experience with unmatched levels of service you’ll want to repeat again and again.”
