The Big Three: ex-UK cruises from Bristol and Belfast

Fred-Olsen-German-Canals-credit-Iker-Merodio

There are a surprising number of regional ports covering the western reaches of the British Isles, from Belfast to Bristol and Falmouth. There aren’t departures every week, but that’s not to say there isn’t a huge amount of variety in what’s on offer. From cruises to the continent, to sailings north and then even further afield — with some excellent value to be found.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Ex-UK guide 2016, each week we will be running our Big Three feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from based on regional ports. This week it’s cruises that leave from the west.

Cruise Adviser top tip

If you have clients with mobility issues, call a cruise line’s sales department and ask about getting around the ship. Some lines are far better than others — most also now offer rooms specially designed for less able bodied passengers.
