Cruise Dialysis

South England & Ireland onboard Vasco de Gama departing 1 September 2019, 11 nights

With only 1220 passengers, the Vasco da Gama combines beautiful, contemporary décor with a more traditional cruise style.  There are 120 spacious superior and premium balcony cabins and 29 de-luxe balcony suites including an impressive Royal Penthouse Suite. A majority of twin bedded cabins convert to double bed cabins and a limited number also have inter-connecting doors, ideal for family groups.

The facilities on board Vasco da Gama are impressive with a choice of six restaurants, five lounge bars, a pool bar and four entertainment venues each with its own individual style. She offers a casino, library, card room and shopping galleria plus extensive deck areas, two swimming pools (one of which has a retractable roof), sports courts, spa amenities and a gym.

The Vasco da Gama has great entertainment on board, from show teams to pianists to disco. Why not start your evening with a pre-dinner drink and enjoy some of your favourite melodies? The resident musicians invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy conversation with new friends about another wonderful day ashore.

Samson and Goliath are a popular landmark that rises above Belfast’s skyline. The two large, yellow overhead cranes are reminiscent of the shipbuilding industry, which secured Northern Ireland’s capital a permanent place on the map. In a state-of-the-art and iconic complex of buildings, Titanic Belfast will resurrect the golden age of the city on 6 floors, highlighting the legendary story of the sinister luxury liner built here at Harland & Wolff. Belfast’s elegant City Hall stands proud on Donegal Square in the heart of the cosmopolitan city of today, with its all-time Irish charm. The exceptionally impressive Giant’s Causeway on the rough Antrimküste can be explored on a trip.

The capital of the Green Island is of an unforgettable character with its friendly inhabitants, its fascinating history, its legendary literary tradition and the charming mix of medieval, Georgian and modern architecture. Dublin lies on the east coast of Ireland and stretches along the River Liffey. Dublin Castle, Christchurch Cathedral, Trinity College and the beautiful St. Stephen’s Green are located south of the river, while the magnificent Customs House, the majestic Four Courts and the famous main post office decorate Dublin’s northern part. Ha’penny Bridge, with its high arches, runs from one side of the river to the other, and is considered one of Dublin’s most famous landmarks.

Located at the mouth of the River Lee, Cobh pride shows itself to be one of the best natural harbors in the world. Until 1922, the place was known as Queenstown and home port for thousands of Irish emigrants on their way to America. It was also the last port where the Titanic docked before sinking. “Queenstown Story” is a wonderful exhibition that tells of the city’s handsome maritime past. From Cobh’s waterfront promenade, the streets lined with brightly colored houses climb the slopes of a hill crowned by the impressive St. Coleman’s Cathedral. From the charming little town of Cobh, you can explore the city of Cork and start a trip to Ireland’s legendary Blarney Castle.

  • We had a lovely holiday and have lots of pictures to remind us of where we went – they are on my screensaver already and are a very enjoyable reminder.  As you know I love these holidays. I am really grateful that I could have a holiday while on dialysis – it is so lovely to get away from home for more than a night!
