Fred. Olsen – Devon & Cornwall
Sails from Southampton
Sailing a short, yet relaxing and rewarding journey along England’s south coast, taking in plenty of highlights along the way, you’re in for a perfect escape from it all. Visiting Cornish shores, you’ll delight in views of the Fal Estuary’s gorgeous landscapes and stop overnight in Falmouth. Braemar docks close to the centre of this charming town, and to Pendennis Castle – built by Henry VIII in the 16th century – and the National Maritime Museum. Falmouth is also your gateway to the famous Eden Project, and the scenic Lizard Peninsula.
On the Devonshire coast, Plymouth awaits you. Following in the footsteps of famous explorers such as Drake, Darwin and Captain Cook, your exploration here could see you stroll the historic Barbican district, encompassing the original harbour and the oldest gin distillery in England, while you can visit the National Marine Aquarium and admire sea views from the Smeaton’s Tower Lighthouse too. What’s more, you’ll experience scenic cruising by the Channel Islands, and revel in the beauty of British coastline, all from the comfort of your smaller cruise ship.

Plymouth’s fascinating maritime history stretches back over several centuries. Sir Francis Drake, Charles Darwin and Captain James Cook are just a few of the famous explorers which used Plymouth as a base for some of the great voyages of discovery, including epic journeys to the Galapagos Islands, the Pacific and the Southern Oceans. Plymouth was also the departure point for the Pilgrims when they set sail for North America aboard the Mayflower in 1620.
