We start in Southampton on the south coast of England, sailing north for Liverpool and our first golf call. We cross the Irish Sea to vibrant Dublin, Ireland, before two days in Belfast for the weekend of The 153rd Open. From there we cross to Scotland with golf at Prestwick and Ailsa Turnberry, northwards again with a leisurely day at sea, as we head to the Granite City of Aberdeen for Cruden Bay and Trump International, before continuing to Dundee and Edinburgh the striking capital city of Scotland with its castle perched atop the rocky crags looking out upon the Firth of Forth.
The golf line-up is outstanding. Your biggest decision may well be whether to join the MAX FAULKNER flight, or the FRED DALY flight. Whichever you select, you are assured of six fabulous rounds with play on some of the finest and most renowned courses of the British Isles; Past and future venues of The Open such as Carnoustie and Royal Birkdale, the fabled Prestwick Golf Club, the much loved and revered Cruden Bay, and modern day classics such as Trump International, Kingsbarns, and Dumbarnie. Midway through our cruise we watch history unfold as we attend the final two rounds of The 153rd Open at Royal Portrush Golf Club.
The FRED DALY flight also offers a 3-round GOLF LITE option affording the opportunity to play three of our acclaimed courses – Hillside, Prestwick, and Kingsbarns, OR Ailsa Turnberry, Trump International and Kings Course Gleneagles. The rounds are nicely spread throughout the duration of the voyage, ideal for guests who prefer a little less golf and a little more sightseeing, or simply for couples where one half prefers a little more golf than the other half. In all other respects the Golf Lite program is identical, inclusive of all other amenities and participation at all onboard golf group social events, and with included attendance at the final two days of The 153rd Open.
