Rising from the depths of the Atlantic, the rugged, volcanic Azores lie 800 miles off the coast of Portugal. Colonized by the Portuguese in the 16th century, the nine islands have provided a haven to Atlantic mariners for over five centuries. The Azores offer travelers spectacular landscapes that range from lush meadows fringed with brightly colored hydrangea to ancient caldera filled with lakes. And the many small villages and shops retain an otherworldly air and 18th-century charm.

The rich and famous, as well as mega yacht owners, have considered St. Barthélemy their exclusive playground for many years because of its distinctive French flavor, beautiful beaches, gourmet dining, and shops that offer trendy French fashions. St. Barthélemy, or St. Barths as the locals call it, may be a small island totaling a meager eight square miles, but it offers the upscale visitor a distinctive French experience in the Caribbean. Gustavia, the capital, is surrounded by a picture-postcard harbor and is the center for shopping, restaurants, and quaint bistros.

All Star Irish Charter Cruise

May 28 to June 4, 2023

Click link below for more info:
Thirty three years ago I promoted my first Irish theme cruise. We sailed out of New York Harbor joined by 80 passengers and some of New York’s finest musicians. While I had been promoting other Irish events, I had absolutely no idea of the organizational skills required for successful cruising. We were all novices on this incredible voyage as this was also a first cruise for my guests. The ship was small, our staterooms quite plain but the food was incre-dible and the midnight buffets were truly indulgent.

We were assigned a small lounge on the top of the ship to host our Irish entertainment. Let me tell you we had so much fun that we were the envy of every other passenger onboard. We danced nights away, enjoying the Siege of Ennis, Jiving, Polka’s, Old Time Waltz’s and ending each night with our Anthems. I recall coming back with hundreds of names given to me by other passengers that wanted to be notified of my next Irish cruise.

It all began for me from that cruise so many years ago, with 80 passengers to chartering entire ships. I continued to promote an Irish theme cruise on an annual basis. I gained a vast amount of knowledge along the way on how to improve the cruising experience. However I remain steadfast to my own theory “simply envision the type of quality and service that I would expect and don’t offer anything less to my customers”. My philosophy is to offer my guests the 5-star experience from the moment they step on the pier for embarkation. The mood is set, each guest is personally greeted, followed by a champagne reception and of course some welcome Irish music. It is heartwarming to watch the smiling faces and joyous emotions exhibited as each guest is ready to board the ship for the cruise of a lifetime. I now charter Holland America’s vista class ships annually catering up to 2000 + passengers.

Most of my business comes from “word of mouth” and passengers hail from all over the world. I am truly blessed and have to thank all of my guests who sailed with me over the past thirty years. Should you choose to join us on this 30th Anniversary cruise you are sure to meet up with some old friends that you have met along the way on a Gertrude Byrne All Star Irish Cruise!

Miami, FL - Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas - San Juan, Puerto Rico - Gustavia St. Barths, St. Barthelemy Island France - Roseau, Dominica - Bridgetown, Barbados

Barbados is one of the few Caribbean islands solely colonized by one nation. It's no wonder Bajans describe their country as being "more English than England sheself," surnames like Worthing and Hastings abound. But look around and you know you're not in England: rich and fertile tropical fields meet a glistening, azure sea. The soft pastels of old chattel houses blend with the vibrant reds, oranges, and greens of roadside fruit stands. In short, Barbados exudes a charm all its own.

From the port of Kusadasi on Turkey's Anatolian Coast, one travels into the past. Nearby stand the ruins of ancient Ephesus, a major site of archeological excavation. The city was once a Roman provincial capital and trading center. Ephesus is also home to several of Christendom's holiest sites. St. Paul preached at the Great Theater and the ruins of Ephesus' Basilica cover the tomb of Christ's most beloved disciple, St. John the Apostle.

Dublin, Ireland - Belfast, Northern Ireland - Londonderry, Northern Ireland - Killybegs, Ireland - Galway, Ireland - Foynes, Ireland - Cobh, Cork, Ireland - Southampton, England

The capital of Northern Ireland - part of the United Kingdom - Belfast has experienced a renaissance since the Good Friday Agreement of 1998 that promised an end to the decades-old "Troubles" between Catholics and Protestants. Stretching along both sides of the River Lagan, this graceful city of Victorian and Edwardian buildings has become a cosmopolitan tourist destination. Once a major industrial center, Belfast is also your gateway to the rich, Irish countryside of Counties Antrim and Down. Belfast was an industrial giant in the 19th century, famed for its linen and its shipyards. Explore this exuberant city, marvel at the Giant's Causeway or shop for superb Irish linens.

Livorno is the gateway to glorious Tuscany. Visit Florence - the cradle of the Renaissance - home to the Duomo, the Uffizi and the Ponte Vecchio. Here the Medici fostered a city-state whose cultural legacy is as great as classical Athens. Giants like Dante, Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Galileo infused the West with a new creative spirit. Then there is Pisa, Florence's rival for political power. Pisa, a brash, commercial seafaring town rivaled the great maritime powers of Venice and Genoa. The city was a leader in art and architecture second only to Florence.

The soft pastels of old chattel houses blend with the vibrant reds, oranges, and greens of roadside fruit stands. In short, Barbados exudes a charm all its own. Perhaps it is due to Bajan culture, that celebrated blend of English tradition and the African heritage brought to the island by slaves imported to work the sugar plantations. The potent brew which results flavors every aspect of island life, from music, dance and art, to religion, language and food.

Vancouver, Canada- Ketchikan - Juneau, Alaska

It seems unlikely that a character named "Gassy Jack" Deighton would be responsible for one of the most beautiful cities on the continent. But that's history for you. During the gold rush, Gassy Jack saw a chance to make money from the hordes of miners on their way to the Yukon. The saloon he built became the focus of the shanty town known as Gastown. From that ragtag group of shacks, modern Vancouver was born. The provincial government persuaded settlers to change the name of the town to Vancouver, after Captain George Vancouver, who sailed the region's waters in 1792. Canada's third-largest city, Vancouver is a cosmopolitan place with a European feel and a personality all its own. It's a community with a rich ethnic mix - including the second-largest Chinatown in North America - and stunningly beautiful parks.

Reykjavik, Iceland - Isafjordur, Iceland - Akureyri, Iceland - Seydisfjordur, Iceland - Falmouth, England - Southampton, England

Iceland is a land of volcanoes and glaciers, lava fields and green pastures, boiling thermal springs and ice-cold rivers teeming with salmon. This unspoiled demi-paradise is also home to a very old and sophisticated culture. The northernmost capital in the world, Reykjavik was founded in 874 when Ingolfur Arnarson threw wood pillars into the sea, vowing to settle where the pillars washed ashore. Today, Iceland is an international center of commerce and home to one of the most technologically sophisticated societies in the world. Reykjavik is the gateway to Iceland's natural wonders, which range from ice fields to thermal pools. The island is in a continual process of transformation much like its society, which blends Nordic tradition with sophisticated technology.

Boston was America's first great city and has been described as the "Athens of America." Today this vibrant city combines historic districts with revitalized urban centers.  Follow the Freedom Trail along three of the most historic miles in the country and see the site of the Boston Tea Party.

Although Greenland is the world's largest island, it remains relatively unknown to most people. Only about 15 percent of Greenland is NOT frozen year-round. Although city's are a relatively new concept for Greenlanders, Nuuk is the island's capital and largest city, at about 16,000 people. It lies on a peninsula along the central west coast and is the key to an extensive system of fjords. Like most places in Greenland, it displays a magnificent vista of mountains and valleys.

Yes, the Panama Canal is a true wonder... But beyond the locks, there’s even more to see. Walk among the ruins of Casco Viejo, the original site of Panama City, a UNESCO site. Visit the architectural marvel known as the BioMuseo. Part art, part science, this museum is acclaimed as Panama’s newest icon. Enjoy traditional native music, song and dance at Embera village. See wildlife in their natural habitat as you cruise through Gatun Lake.

For a taste of Europe with Caribbean flavor, look no farther than Nassau. The main city on New Providence Island in the Bahamas, Nassau offers everything from British-influenced cricket games and bewigged judges to Riviera-style casinos. And its banking system, with its strict secrecy laws, rivals that of Switzerland. Situated less than 75 miles from the coast of Florida, the islands of the Bahamas lure visitors with their tropical landscapes and clear waters.

New York, New York - Kings Wharf, Bermuda - New York, New York

The Royal Naval Dockyard, the westernmost point in Bermuda, not only showcases Bermuda's nautical heritage, but it also provides a home for an impressive array of attractions and shopping opportunities. The fortifications of the Royal Naval Dockyard were built by British convicts and slave labor during the mid-1800s. Since then it has served many purposes, including the headquarters for the Royal Navy and a strategic defense post for the British in the North Atlantic. Most recently it has been redeveloped into a fascinating attraction offering visitors a glimpse into Bermuda's history, and has become a fun place to shop or explore.

When Columbus made his landfall in the Caymans in 1503, he found tortoises and sea turtles in such profusion that he promptly named the islands Las Tortugas. But the name that stuck for the islands was the Carib word "Caimanas." Fitting, since the caiman is a New World crocodilian and the islands were long the lair of pirates, buccaneers, and assorted freebooters. Despite their past, the Caymans are a Caribbean demi-paradise of white-sand beaches, coral gardens, and offshore waters harboring spectacular shipwrecks.

Le Havre, France - Bilbao, Spain Biscay Basque Country - La Coruna, Spain

Bilbao used to be off the beaten track, but Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Museum literally put Bilbao on the map. The city offers impressive, 19th-century buildings and bridges and is the gateway to the Basque country. Perched on the hills above the rust-colored waters of the Nervion River, Bilbao is a thriving port and the commercial heart of Spain's Basque country. The city dates back to the Middle Ages - it was granted city status by Don Diego Lopez de Haro, Lord of Biscay, in 1300 - but it was the 19th century and the Industrial Revolution that cemented Bilbao's economic status.

Southampton, England - Stavanger, Norway - Tromso, Norway

Norway's fourth largest city, Stavanger lies at the mouth of the Gandsfjord. The old port, attests to the sea's enduring role in Norwegian history. Here, Vikings once sailed on voyages of conquest and exploration. In later centuries, the port served as a major hub for Norway's mercantile and fishing fleets. By the mid-20th century, however, Stavanger had fallen on hard times as the fishing grounds dwindled. In 1969, the discovery of North Sea oil opened a new chapter in Stavanger's history.

NYC, New York - Philipsburg, St. Maarten

St. Maarten offers a delightful case of split personality. Legend has it that a Frenchman and a Dutchman divided ownership of the island through a walk-off: Standing back to back, the two headed in opposite directions, walking around the island until they met. Perhaps the Dutchman paused for a refreshing brew. At any rate, the French ended up claiming 21 square miles of the island to 16 square miles for the Dutch. This lively tale says much about St. Maarten's easygoing ways. No formal boundary exists between the Dutch and French sides of the island; a simple welcome sign tells you when you cross from one country to the other. But the differences are as noticeable as the spelling of the island's name.

Fort Lauderdale, FL - Kings Wharf, Bermuda - Cobh, Ireland

This destination owes its name to the sea captain from Spain, Juan de Bermudez, who first discovered it in the early 1500s. Bermuda was later included in the Virginia Company charter, and English colonists made the watery passage to its pink-sand shores.

Over the following years, Bermuda’s population swelled with an influx of new ethnicities ranging from Native American and African to Irish and Scottish. The island’s geographic positioning gave it a tactical military advantage for launching British attacks against the United States during the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Bermuda was later allowed to self-govern under British rule in 1968. Today, the island thrives on a healthy tourism economy and continues to be a cultural melting pot.

The largest port in Europe, Rotterdam is an intriguing mix of the old and the new. The city's lineage is ancient - Count Willem III granted city rights to the sleepy fishing village on the Rotte in 1328, yet much of the city dates from the six decades following the end of World War II. An important industrial center and a major European port, Rotterdam was among the first targets of the Nazi blitzkrieg against the West. On May 14, 1940, the German Luftwaffe firebombed the city, Rotterdam was gutted. The post-war years saw a slow rebuilding but by the early 1960s the maze of port facilities extended all the way to the North Sea. Today, this city of over half a million is the economic powerhouse, not just of the Netherlands but of Northern Europe.

The largest of the British Leeward Islands, Antigua (pronounced an-tee-ga) boasts one of the Caribbean's most spectacular coastlines with secluded coves and sun drenched beaches. The island's rolling hills are dotted with stone sugar mills, relics from the bygone era when sugar was king. Historic Nelson's Dockyard, where Admiral Horatio Nelson quartered his fleet in 1784, attests to Antigua's long and colorful nautical history during colonial times. And St. John's, the island's bustling capital, offers visitors a wealth of boutiques, restaurants and pubs.

Lying between Guadeloupe and Martinique is the island of Dominica--an unspoiled Caribbean paradise. The vibrant, rich rainforest is home to rare birds, including Sisserou and Jacquot parrots. Streams tumble down mountain slopes and thread fertile valleys on their short route to the sea. Dominica is also home to the last Carib Indians. When Columbus made landfall on his second voyage of discovery, this fierce tribe managed to keep the explorer at bay. And while the island proved a lure for both British and French planters, Dominica somehow managed to escape the trammels of civilization. This former British possession, independent since 1978, today lures visitors from around the world with its unspoiled beauty. As the islanders fondly say, "Apres Bondi, c'est la terre" (After God, it is the land). Tours may travel narrow, winding roads.

Bonaire is without a doubt a "diver's paradise." Its license plates even state the same. But there is much more to this small Dutch country of 17,500 residents. "Bon Bini," as you will hear the friendly locals say, means "welcome to the island of Bonaire." Bonaire is located off the coast of Venezuela and has for years been known as a world-class diving and snorkeling destination. Diving and snorkeling are still the predominant activities, but today there is also a variety of other activities to enjoy such as kayaking, bird watching, and other eco-tours. Because of the hot and arid weather, Bonaire has been a major producer of sea salt.
