All that jazz in Burgundy and Provence

Botany and birdlife in the British Isles

Botanica Tours’ 11-day small-ship cruise – which begins in Edinburgh, Scotland, and concludes in London – will appeal to green thumbs and twitchers alike. You’ll visit remote Scottish castles and County Waterford (think crystal) in Ireland, as well as the pretty village of Portmeirion in North Wales and the Isles of Scilly off the Cornwall coast.

Departures to June 30, 2016 

Port wine and pastries in Portugal

Sailing from Lisbon to Porto and along the Douro River, this 11-day Uniworld cruise features a visit to a 16th-century monastery. The itinerary includes stops at traditional pastry shops and wine estates, where guests can sample sweet local delicacies and fortified wines such as the famous Sandeman port. Guests can also experience flamenco in Salamanca.

Departures April to November 2016
