Ireland & Iceland
Iceland, Ireland, and Scotland are classified by the cruise lines as British Isles cruises.
Cruises to Ireland and Iceland are all longer than 7 days, since it takes so long to get all the way up there and back.
Icelandic ports include: Reykjavik, Isafjordur, Grundarfjordur, Seydisfjordur, Djupivogur, and Akureyri.
Ports in Ireland include: Belfast, Dublin, Cobh, Killybegs and Cork.
Atlantic Coastal and British Isle cruises are lumped together into one category because most cruises which go to an Atlantic Coastal port also go to a port which is technically in the British Isles.
