On July 4th, Americas 236th birthday, we are sailing “North to Alaska” on Holland Americas ms Volendam out of the Port of Vancouver, BC. Experience the rugged beauty of Alaska from the luxury of your private verandah. Watch as whales breach and magnificent glaciers sail into view. Fill your days with exploration of the most natural kind and your nights with Irish music, dancing, singing and comedy. We would love to have you sail with us as we cruise the Inside Passage to Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan. Join me along with Kathy & Andreas Durkin and Jimmy Walsh for this unique adventure. The ms Volendam will be your hotel for the week. You will also enjoy all the great shows on board, movies, casinos, etc.
Pre and post Vancouver packages are available if you wish to explore this beautiful city.
Paddy’s Titanic Centennial Tour of Ireland on August 9th
You will enjoy all the merriment of a Paddy Noonan tour of the Emerald Isle as you travel on a CIE luxury coach through the highways and byways of beautiful Ireland. You will visit Belfast and the Harland and Wolff shipyard, birthplace of the Titanic in1909, the largest and most luxurious ocean liner of its time. Her maiden voyage commenced three years later on April 12, 1912 and ended tragically late evening on April 14, 1912. After Belfast you will visit Derry City, then on to Donegal, through Sligo, to Cong, County Mayo, home of the “Quiet Man” and surrounding areas were the classic movie was filmed, on to Galway, the “City of the Tribes” (it is said Christopher Columbus sailed from here to discover America), We will travel south through County Clare, the Cliffs of Moher and board a ferry and in less than an hour we are in County Kerry heading to Killarney. Then over the majestic Cork n’ Kerry Mountains to Kinsale, the Gourmet Capital Ireland. Then we will be heading toward the town of Cobh (formerly Queenstown) in Cork Harbor - the last port of call for the RMS Titanic. The Titanic Trail is a fascinating walking tour that explores the historic town which takes visitors to St. Coleman’s Cathedral (where passengers prayed before sailing), the buildings, streets and piers which have not changed since the Titanic’s sinking 100 years ago. This tour will bring to life the story of the Titanic and the events in the town on the day the Titanic left her last anchorage to sail into her icy fate in the North Atlantic.
There is much more to tell you, so please call for the "rest of the story". Lots of fun along with way at our Irish Parties, meet lovely people and a grand time will be had by all.
We hope that you can join us on one or more of our trips – let your friends know about them. Looking forward to hearing from you.
