Code: BW56
Prices: Adult 39.75 / Child 29.75 USD Restrictions: N/A
Duration: 3 hrs 15 mins Departure Times: May 07, 01:15 pm
Northern Ireland's largest city is a center for industry and culture that boasts a rich and varied past. This panoramic tour will introduce you to its most important landmarks, including the Grand Opera House and the Albert Memorial and Belfast Castle. Enjoy a photo opportunity on the grounds of Belfast City Hall, with its grand gates that bear the city's Coat of Arms and lamps featuring seahorses and cherubs to symbolize the city's industrial and manufacturing legacy. On the grounds of City Hall is a Titanic Memorial honoring men who perished when the grand ship sank. Then it's off to Botanic Gardens, established in 1828 and home to exotic tree varieties from around the Southern Hemisphere, for a brief stop. Here visitors find tropical plants including bird of paradise, lilies, and palms. The gardens' most notable element is the Palm House conservatory, one of the earliest curvilinear cast-iron glass houses in existence. When the Marquess of Donegall laid the founding stone in 1839, greenhouses were hailed as a great advance for horticulturists endeavoring to grow tropical plants in cold climates. The 28-acre Botanic Gardens site is a popular venue for concerts, festivals, and picnics. It offers peaceful refuge for residents and visitors from Belfast's hustle and bustle.
Highlights:
  • See Belfast's colorful history unfold as visitors explore landmarks and monuments that are significant parts of its legend and lore.
  • Be surprised by little-known facts about this industrial city; for instance, that the ill-fated Titanic was built here.
  • Enjoy a brief visit to the city's Botanical Garden, created during the Victorian era to showcase plants from the Southern Hemisphere.

Duration: 4 hrs Departure Times: May 07, 01:30 pm
Gaze at the wave-tossed sea, white cliffs and green hills that flank the Antrim Coast Road on a 90-minute drive to Glenariff Forest Park, a 2,928-acre nature preserve of almost unimaginable beauty. Your first glance at this slice of paradise confirms Ireland's moniker as the Emerald Isle; there are said to be 40 shades of green represented in the foliage. Wide wooden trails snake through the woodlands, lakes, wildlife refuges and recreation areas that comprise Glenariff Forest Park. Bisecting the park are the Inver and the Glenariff rivers, which feature magnificent tumbling waterfalls, serene pools, long expanses of sparkling water, and rocky gorges. Guests will have ample time to explore the awe-inspiring park independently before regrouping at a lovely café for morning or afternoon tea or coffee with homemade scones. The world-famous Glens of Antrim is an area that has attracted visitors for more than a century. Glenariff is considered the fairest of the nine glens, or valleys, because of its wild beauty. Like all of the glens, it was created by a glacier in the Ice Age, and it has evolved into a tranquil, safe and welcoming destination. After touring the glen, return via an inland route to the port.
Highlights:
  • Gaze in wonder at waterfalls, foliage and wildlife at stunning Glenariff Forest Park.
  • Allow the stillness and splendor of the forest to enrich mind and soul.

The Giant's Causeway

The Giant's Causeway

Belfast, Northern Ireland
May 07, 2019

Code: BW58
Prices: Adult 75.75 / Child 55.75 USD Restrictions: N/A
Duration: 6 hrs 30 mins Departure Times: May 07, 11:45 am, May 07, 01:00 pm
From Belfast, take a leisurely drive along the inland route to the Giant's Causeway, one of Northern Ireland's most iconic landmarks and its only UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along the way, stop to snap photos at the ruins of the Medieval Dunluce Castle, which stands like a sentinel overlooking the sea from its perch on the dramatic cliffs of County Antrim. The castle has a tumultuous history. Many legends are associated with it, including one involving a banshee (this being Ireland) and another regarding a stormy night in 1639 that culminated in the castle kitchens falling into the raging sea. On far more solid footing, the awe-inspiring Giant's Causeway is a distinctive volcanic and geological formation of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns on the island's northeast coast. About 50-60 million years ago, during a period of powerful volcanic activity, liquid basalt infiltrated chalk beds, forming a plateau of lava, which then contracted, and turned to pillars. The impressive rocks draw tourists from all over the world, to marvel at the mysterious forces of nature. A short panoramic tour through Belfast City rounds out a day spent contemplating nature's majesty and the architecture of a bygone era.
Highlights:
  • Visit The Giants Causeway, the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland.
  • Enjoy a photo opportunity at the ruins of the solitary and dramatic Dunluce Castle, built in 1513.
  • Thrill your senses with spectacular sea and cliff views along the northern Antrim Coast and a short drive through Belfast City.
What to Bring:
  • SeaPass card and photo identification
  • Camera
  • Cash/credit cards
  • Umbrella
What to Wear:
  • Flat, comfortable walking shoes
  • Warm, comfortable clothing
  • Waterproof jacket
Important Notes:
  • Guests with physical difficulties must be accompanied by a companion.
  • Walking through the Giants Causeway involves uneven surfaces.
  • The stones at the causeway can become slippery when wet.
  • You may walk along a paved pathway leading to the bottom of the cliffs or the shuttle.
  • There is a shuttle bus guests can take to/from the visitor center to the stones, and an audio tour is available. Both are included in the tour.

Code: BW60
Prices: Adult 69.75 / Child 39.75 USD Restrictions: N/A
Duration: 4 hrs Departure Times: May 07, 12:30 pm
Enjoy a drive along the picturesque Ards Peninsula to Grey Abbey, founded in 1193 by Affreca, daughter of Godred Olafsson (King of the Isles) and the wife of John de Courcy, the Anglo-Norman invader. Visit the ruins of the ancient Cistercian Abbey. Turning north, admire sweeping views across the Irish Sea toward Scotland as you pass through the town of Millisle en route to Donaghadee, with its picturesque harbor and 1836 lighthouse. Founded in 1910, the lifeboat station at Donaghadee harbor has a special significance on the wild Irish coast. The crew of the lifeboat Sir Samuel Kelly, based here, saved 33 passengers from the imperiled car ferry, MV Princess Victoria, in 1953 (sadly, 130 people perished as the ferry sank in one of the most ferocious gales ever to roil the Irish Sea). Sip an Irish coffee here, and reflect on tales of the sea, ships, and the courageous spirit of those who dwell here.
Highlights:
  • Visit the ruins of an ancient Cistercian abbey and the quaint seaside town of Donaghadee.
  • Relax with an Irish coffee in Donaghadee, a picturesque harbor town on the coast of the Irish Sea.
  • Enjoy a drive in the Ards Peninsula, sandwiched between the unspoiled waters of Strangford Lough on the west and a string of sandy beaches to the east.

Begin with a short drive to Cork, Ireland's second largest city. Founded by St. Finbar in the 7th century, Cork was an important Viking port and to this day the water-bound tradition continues: The River Lee flows around the heart of this island city. As you travel along Merchant's Quay, St. Patrick's Street, Grand Parade, and the South Mall, your guides point out elegant Georgian architecture. You'll pass St. Fin Barre's Cathedral, designed by the great Victorian architect William Burges. The elaborate Gothic Revival façade features a copper “Resurrection Angel.” Legend claims that if the angel topples, the end of the world is near. Then, proceed to the Jameson Experience Midleton. Distilling was a centuries-old Irish tradition, but in the 17th century the British imposed licensing laws, closing down small distillers. John Jameson, a Scots lawyer who immigrated to Ireland, launched John Jameson Whiskey in Dublin in 1780. Your behind-the-scenes tour includes lesser-seen buildings such as the distiller's cottage, cooperage, and micro-distillery, and a tasting of three premium whiskeys (Redbreast 12, Coopers Croze, and Midleton Very Rare), as well as a glass of Jameson Original or Jameson Ginger and Lime as you relax in the bar post-tour.
Highlights:
  • Sample a trio of whiskeys at the Jameson distillery in Midleton while learning about this iconic spirit and the company's origins.
  • Explore lesser-seen buildings of the Jameson distillery such as the distiller's cottage, cooperage, and micro-distillery.

Met by a guide at the dock, you'll travel by boat to Spike Island, which commands a strategic position in lower Cork Harbor, the world's second-largest natural harbor. Evidence suggests that Saint Mochuda founded a monastic settlement here in the 7th century. But, 10 centuries later, when a series of artillery fortifications were built to protect the harbor, Spike Island became the site of the star-shaped Fort Mitchel, the largest of those fortifications. In 1847, the 24-acre fort became a prison, and within three years, more than 2,000 convicts were detained there. Stories of inhumane conditions proliferated, and in 1883 the last of the prisoners was relocated to the mainland. Then, almost a century later, the island was again home to a prison. Between 1985 and 2004, the fort housed young offenders convicted of stealing and recklessly driving cars. Today, the fort and land around it function as a testament to the people who lived here. Your guide will point out the island's key features and fascinating facts, then you'll have time to explore at your leisure. Rejoin your boat for the return journey to Cobh, where you can make your way back to your ship or explore the town.
Highlights:
  • Tour the infamous prisoner depot, which once housed more than 2,000 people, including its isolation block and former children's prison.
  • Hear stories of prisoners — they run the gamut from revolutionaries to common criminals — from knowledgeable guides.
  • Explore the Island independently and discover the fascinating differences in its history

General InformationWhat if I wish to tour on my own?
Guests who choose to explore destinations independently of Shore Excursions offered by Celebrity Cruises will be responsible for their own transportation.
Please Note:
Shore Excursions offered by Celebrity Cruises are led by experienced tour operators. When opting for individual transportation or tours, Celebrity Cruises® does not assume responsibility for any accidents or injuries, for the actions of local drivers, and does not supervise drivers to ensure safety or prompt return to the pier. All transportation and tours are provided and operated by independent contractors. Please remember that given the limited number of transportation facilities in some ports, relief cars may not be obtainable in case of breakdowns along the road, which can cause delays in returning to the pier.

Where should I go to meet my tour group?
Most tours will meet in a lounge on board the ship prior to departing. Shore Excursions ticket(s) will contain information regarding exact location(s) and departure time(s). For guest convenience, staff will be on hand to assist with questions regarding departure points and will guide guests to the designated meeting location(s).

How are tour times determined and how much time should be allocated for each?
Tour times are established according to information received from the local tour operators, but are subject to change should the vessel’s arrival time at the port be delayed or should circumstances arise whereby the itinerary for a particular Shore Excursion must, necessarily, be altered. Guests should be mindful of the fact that at ports where the ship lies at anchor, afternoon tours commence from the dockside, not the ship. Guests should, therefore, allow at least 30 minutes for the tender ride to shore.
Please Note:
When booking more than one tour in a day, guests should allow at least 60 minutes between the return of the first tour and the departure of the second tour.

How will I know what my tour departure time is?
Guests can refer to their Shore Excursion ticket(s) for departure information, as no announcements will be made on board the ship. Tour departure times may vary from those listed on the order form, especially in ports where the ship must tender guests ashore.

How much time should I allow to return to the ship?
All guests are required to be back aboard their ship no later than 30 minutes prior to the ship’s scheduled departure time, which is listed in the Daily Program and posted at the gangway. The scheduling of all Shore Excursions conforms to this requirement. However, if a guest leaves a tour en route, it will be the guest’s sole responsibility to secure transportation to return to the pier on time.

What happens if a tour is delayed?
If for any reason a Shore Excursion offered by Celebrity Cruises is delayed, the ship will be notified and await the tour’s return.
Please Note:
We are not responsible for any delays or cancellations regarding tours that are not booked through Celebrity Cruises. In the event a tour that is not booked through Celebrity Cruises is delayed, it will be the guest’s sole responsibility for making any necessary arrangements to return to port or their ship.

Is it possible to miss the ship?
Any number of unforeseen circumstances may contribute to a tour’s delay and cause a guest to miss the ship. However, Celebrity Cruises guarantees return to ship for all guests on Shore Excursions booked through Celebrity Cruises, at no expense to the guest.

What type of transportation is used for Shore Excursions?
Transportation to and from Shore Excursions may vary considerably.
Please Note:
Air-conditioned vehicles are not always available, nor do all tour buses have restroom facilities on board. Some countries have local restrictions and/or zoning laws that prohibit the use of the onboard facilities and prohibit the idling of engines while parked at the various venues. The air-conditioning systems may not be to North American standards. Cars, taxis, or mini-buses may be used in some ports where coaches are not available or are limited.
