The magnificently decorated Book of Kells is on display at the venerable Trinity College.

Day 2: Friday, 29 June 2018 - Douglas, United Kingdom
The capital of the Isle of Man, Douglas lies on a beautiful bay backed by wild moors and rugged glens. A horse-drawn tram ride is a great way to see the considerable sights. Don't miss the fascinating collection of Viking artifacts in the Manx Museum
Day 3: Saturday, 30 June 2018 - Belfast, Ireland
Delight in this vibrant city of ornate Victorian and Edwardian architecture, gracious gardens and friendly pubs. Thrill to the natural phenomenon of the Giants' Causeway, a stunning geological anomaly of tightly packed, uneven basalt columns disappearing into the sea, and the enigmatic ruins of Grey Abbey.
Day 4: Sunday, 1 July 2018 - Ullapool, United Kingdom
Catch one of the ever-changing exhibitions of works by local artists at the Ullapool Visual Arts Centre and view impressive textiles, ceramics, paintings and photography. Trace your Scottish ancestry in the genealogy section of the Ullapool Museum housed in a re-purposed Telford Parliamentary church or go hill-walking on one of the many slopes that rise from the sea up to the Scottish Highlands.
Day 5: Monday, 2 July 2018 - Kirkwall (Orkney Islands), United Kingdom
This starkly beautiful island holds many ancient treasures like the enigmatic Standing Stones of Stenness and the 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae, amazingly discovered with furniture and indoor drains preserved. Visit the imposing trio of St. Magnus Cathedral, the nearby ruins of the Earl's Palace, and the earlier Bishop's Palace.
Day 6: Tuesday, 3 July 2018 - Bergen, Norway
Norway's medieval capital pays homage to its past with wooden houses and cobbled streets that grace the historic Bryggen area around the wharf. Here the Hanseatic Museum reveals a glimpse of working life in the Middle Ages, and the eerie 13th century Rosenkrantz Tower offers a phenomenal view of the seaport. But Bergen is also contemporary. The modern city stretches inland from the harbor, tempting visitors with attractions such as Bergen Aquarium and Trolls' Hill, the romantic summer villa of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg, who is buried on the estate.
Day 7: Wednesday, 4 July 2018 - Alesund, Norway
n 1904 much of Ålesund was destroyed by fire, but the town was quickly rebuilt in the period's popular Art Nouveau style. Soaring turrets, spires and beautiful ornamentation adorn the buildings throughout Ålesund, giving it a distinctive flair and earning the town a revered architectural reputation. An evening departure allows you plenty of time to explore its many attractions, such as the spectacular Art Nouveau Centre museum, scenic Town Park, and Atlantic Sea Park, one of Europe's largest aquariums. For a look at modern Norwegian woodworking, visit the impressive Gallery Cylindra. Many of Ålesund's squares feature sculptures commemorating significant events, including the town's rich fishing history and Norway's contribution to World War II.
Day 8: Thursday, 5 July 2018 - Trondheim, Norway
Over a thousand years old, Trondheim is one of the oldest of Norway’s major cities. Visit the magnificent Nidaros Cathedral, the largest medieval building in Scandinavia, and Stiftsgarden Palace, the royal residence and one of the largest wooden buildings in Northern Europe. Enjoy stunning views of Trondheim Fjord from the Ringve Museum, home to a collection of more than 2,000 musical instruments.
Day 9: Friday, 6 July 2018 - At sea, international waters
Enjoy the many facilities onboard the Nautica. Use the Spa or take in a game of bridge with your new friends.
Day 10: Saturday, 7 July 2018 - Hammerfest, Norway
Founded in 1838, Hammerfest was razed repeatedly over the years by storms, fires and most savagely by retreating German soldiers at the end of World War II. Now almost completely rebuilt (it was Europe's first city with electric street lights), Hammerfest is known for its colorful homes lining the sea, contemporary attractions and passion for welcoming visitors to its pristine Arctic environs. The most avant-garde building is the striking Kirkegata church with its tent-shaped gable. But don't miss the whaling artifacts in the museum in Market Square, or the panoramic view atop Salen ridge.
Day 11: Sunday, 8 July 2018 - Murmansk, Russia
Founded in 1916, the year before the Russian Revolution, Murmansk has grown into the largest city north of the Arctic Circle. During World War II, it was a gateway for Allied supplies into Russia, and Murmansk is still a Russian naval base. An enormous concrete war memorial overlooks the harbor. You may also see fishing vessels arriving from the Barents Sea, loaded with their fresh catch. The pristine waters of the surrounding Kola Peninsula are full of salmon, which often find their way into Murmansk's restaurants. The city's first stone building is now the Murmansk Regional Art Museum, which features local artists.
Day 12: Monday, 9 July 2018 - At sea, international waters
Day 13: Tuesday, 10 July 2018 - Solovetsky Islands, Russia
Situated in the icy waters of the southern White Sea, a hundred miles below the Arctic Circle, the Solovetsky Islands are home to one of the most famous and powerful monasteries in the Russian Empire. The 15th century Solovetsky Monastery complex is now a historical and architectural museum. Experience the natural beauty of the islands on a boat tour through the canal system built by monks in the 16th century, or hike along the White Sea to Belugas Cape, where migrating beluga whales gather in the summer months.
Day 14: Wednesday, 11 July 2018 - Archangel, Russia
A regional center of northwestern Russia, Archangel was founded in the 16th century near Archangel Michael Monastery. There are several interesting museums to visit, including the popular Natural History Museum and the Gallery of Arts. Stroll along the banks of the Northern Dvina and see the many monuments to history from the Soviet era to Peter the Great. Admire the Russian North’s unique wooden architecture at Malye Korely, one of Europe’s largest open-air museums.
Day 15: Thursday, 12 July 2018 - At sea, international waters
Day 16: Friday, 13 July 2018 - North Cape (Honningsvaag), Norway
While the Midnight Sun will soon dip below the horizon, Honningsvåg should be illuminated throughout the evening spent here. It's an awe-inspiring setting in northernmost Norway, surrounded by dense forests and fjords, inhabited by reindeer and held sacred by the indigenous Sami people. One of the world's most memorable, otherworldly experiences is standing atop the precipitous North Cape, the late-night sun eerily hanging over the Arctic Ocean. There is even a museum in town devoted to the North Cape. The area is also famous for the Gjesværstappan Nature Reserve, where literally millions of arctic birds flourish during the summer nesting period.
Day 17: Saturday, 14 July 2018 - At sea, international waters
Day 18: Sunday, 15 July 2018 - Kristiansund, Norway
Beautifully situated on four main islands, Kristiansund is an inviting city surrounded by astonishing natural beauty. Its most famous attraction is the Atlantic Road, reputed to offer the world’s best road trip. The route winds its way across islands and over bridges with magnificent views of the ocean and coastline. Kristiansund also houses the oldest opera in Norway, and the city boasts a diverse and colorful array of architectural styles both classic and modern.
Day 19: Monday, 16 July 2018 - Geiranger (Geirangerfjord), Norway
Geiranger nestles in a small valley at the inland tip of Geirangerfjord, which is unabashedly called "the most beautiful fjord in the world." The scenery is absolutely stunning in every direction, so it's no wonder that the first cruise ship arrived here in 1869. Snow-mantled mountains rise majestically from the glacier-carved fjord. The Seven Sisters waterfalls burst forth from the cliffs and thunder into the deep, serene water. Emerald-green forests blanket the hillsides. If you are feeling ambitious, you might follow one of the many nature trails out of Geiranger, or simply take in the magnificent views as you meander through the storybook streets.
Day 20: Monday, 16 July 2018 - Hellesylt, Norway
Norway's oldest Viking port, historic Hellesylt nestles in a fairy tale setting deep in the majestic fjord country at the head of scenic Sunnylvsfjord. Surrounded by ruggedly steep cliffs, pristine mountain lakes and verdant forests, this tiny village of 600 or so residents couldn't be more picturesque or pastoral. The area is hauntingly silent, but for the sound of the glacier-fed Hellesylt waterfall crashing over the granite cliffs into the placid waters of the fjord. The scenery around Hellesylt is so dramatic that it inspired Henrik Ibsen's early play, Brand.
Day 21: Tuesday, 17 July 2018 - At sea, international waters
Day 22: Wednesday, 18 July 2018 - Oslo, Norway
Overlooking a gorgeous fjord, Norway's capital and largest city simply radiates with natural beauty and sophistication. Oslo's rich seafaring history is on display at the Viking Ships Museum, rivaled only by the Kon-Tiki Museum, which holds the balsawood raft that Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl used to sail from Peru to Polynesia. History aside, Oslo exudes a love of the outdoors in city parks like Vigeland, which is adorned with over 200 life-size sculptures by artist Gustav Vigeland. Much of Oslo is heavily forested with pines, making it one of Europe's greenest cities.
