Miami, Florida - Port Canaveral, Florida - Charleston, South Carolina - New York, New York

​Located on a peninsula between the confluence of the Cooper and Ashley Rivers, the city was the first English settlement in South Carolina. As you stroll the city's cobbled streets, history is on display. The College of Charleston was founded in 1770.  The Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, built 1771, was the sight of a Southern "Boston Tea Party" in 1773.  St. Michael's Episcopal Church, built 1752, is the oldest church building in the city - both George Washington and Robert E. Lee attended services there, sitting in Pew 41.  And it was in Charleston Harbor, of course, that the first rounds were fired in America's tragic Civil War.

Stunning scenery and charming seaside resorts are to be found in either direction along the three Corniches.

Caribbean Princess
February 24 - March 1
Port of Spain, Trinidad - Willemstad, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles - Oranjestad, Aruba, Netherlands Antilles - Fort Lauderdale, Florida

​Dutch influence still lingers on this balmy Caribbean island, part of the former Netherlands Antilles until its independence in 1986. Aruba is a contrast: the island's arid interior is dotted with cactus and windswept divi-divi trees while secluded coves and sandy beaches make up its coast. Aruba's long and colorful heritage is reflected in its dialect. Called Papiamento, it is a tongue that combines elements of Spanish, French, Portuguese, Dutch, African and English.

March 26 - April 2
Fort Lauderdale, Florida - Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal

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.


Crown Princess
April 18 - April 22
​Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal - Brest, France - Le Havre (Paris) France

​Perhaps no other place in France holds more associations for English-speaking visitors than Normandy. The historic Allied landings on D-Day - 6 June, 1944 - live on in the memories of British and Americans alike. Nor has Le Havre forgotten the dark days of the war. The port was nearly completely destroyed during the Normandy campaign. Today, Le Havre is France's second largest port and the gateway to Paris, "City of Light," the Norman countryside, and the historic landing beaches. Travelers usually head for the historic landing sites or to Paris. Yet Le Havre was designated a World Heritage Site in 2005.

Invergordan, Scotland - Edinburgh (South Queensferry), Scotland - Le Havre (Paris) France - Southamptom (London) England - St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands - Dublin, Ireland

The British isle of Guernsey lies just eight miles off the coast of France. The second largest of the Channel Islands, Guernsey possesses a mild climate, breathtaking scenery and a peaceful, unspoiled ambience. All these attributes combine to make it a popular destination for British and French vacationers. Once the haunt of sea dogs and pirates, St. Peter Port is one of the prettiest harbors in Europe.  Castles and forts dot the Guernsey coastline, including German fortifications from World War II.

June 5 - June 12
​Invergordon, Scotland - Edinburgh (South Queensferry), Scotland - Le Havre (Paris) France - Southampton (London) England - St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands - Cobh (Cork) Ireland - Dublin, Ireland 

This great industrial port grew to prominence as a result of trade with the Americas. That tradition continued in the '60s as the Beatles mounted the first wave of rock 'n' roll's "British Invasion". Actually, the city possesses cultural charms beyond the Beatles. Liverpool is home to two of the finest neoclassical buildings in Europe. At nearby Port Sunlight, magnate William Lever built a model industrial village and created the Lady Lever Gallery. The museum is home to a superb collection of English paintings and furniture.
Regal Princess
June 29 - July 6
Invergordan, Scotland - Edinburgh (South Queensferry), Scotland - Le Havre (Paris) France - Southampton (London) England - St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands - Cobh (Cork) Ireland 

​Dublin has experienced a renaissance. Today, this gracious and cosmopolitan city on the Liffey is one of Europe's premier destinations. The capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin is an intimate place that is easy to explore. Stroll past St. Stephen's Green or survey the gray, stone façades of Trinity College, Ireland's oldest university. The city is also remarkably well-preserved - every June 16, scholars retrace the paths of James Joyce's characters in the novel "Ulysses," set in Dublin on June 16, 1904.

Regal Princess
June 17 - June 23
Riga, Latvia - Muuga, Tallinn, Estonia - St. Petersburg, Russia - Helsinki, Finland - Stockholm, Sweden 

Like Latvia and Lithuania, the Baltic republic of Estonia has survived a turbulent history. The small nation was conquered and ruled by the likes of Teutonic Knights, Polish princes and Russian Tsars. For 51 years, Estonia remained a pawn in the Soviet empire, until the burgeoning freedom movement led to independence for the Baltic Republics in 1991. Like its sister republics, Estonia maintained its ties to the Western tradition, retaining the Latin alphabet and Catholic and Protestant faiths. Once a member of the historic Hanseatic League, Tallinn is the political, commercial and cultural center of Estonia.

July 10 - July 18
​Venice, Italy - Dubrovnik, Croatia - Mykonos, Greece - Santorini, Thira, Greece - Gythion, Greece - Corfu, Greek Isles - Taormina, Sicily, Italy

​Dubrovnik is a beautiful stone jewel hugging the Adriatic Sea. This picture-perfect medieval walled city offers ancient stone buildings, narrow cobbled streets and fortified ramparts rising above red-tiled rooftops. Stradun is the city's focal point and main artery while Dubrovnik's streets are blessedly free of vehicular traffic. Despite the heavy damage inflicted by shelling in the early '90s, Dubrovnik has been restored to its pre-war beauty. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the old city remains the pride of the Republic of Croatia.  For six centuries Dubrovnik was an independent republic - an oligarchy ruled by patrician families. The Republic was overthrown by Napoleon in 1808.

Miami, Florida - San Juan, Puerto Rico - St. Johns, Antigua - Fort de France - Bridgetown, Barbados, West Indies

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.
November 20 - November 27
​San Antonio, Chile - Puerto Montt, Chile - Puerto Chacabuco, Chile - Chilean Fjords - Punta Arenas, Chile - Ushuaia (Ushuaya), Tierra del Fuego, Argentina

​Puerto Montt is your gateway to Chile's magnificent Lake District. Here, snow-capped volcanoes gaze down on alpine valleys nestled among low hills. Glaciers carved out this terrain, leaving the jewel-like lakes in their wake. The Lake District was a magnet for German immigrants, and their legacy can be seen today in the manicured rose gardens of Puerto Varas, in Chile's "German Villages" like Frutillar and in Puerto Montt's gabled homes with elaborate balconies.

Copenhagen, Denmark - Oslo, Norway - Rostock, Warnemunde Berlin, Germany - Tallinn, Estonia

Forest-clad slopes plummet to an island-studded fjord. Welcome to Oslo, Scandinavia's oldest capital city. The commercial center of Norway, Oslo has been a major trading port for over a millennium. Its harbor is crowded with shipping that ranges from cruise ships to workaday shrimp boats. Though a relatively modest city in size - some 550,000 Norwegians call it home - Oslo is one of the largest capital cities in the world in terms of area. The hills and lakes of its outlying countryside are a paradise for lovers of winter sports. And the city itself boasts a sophisticated, yet cozy charm, with a blend of 19th- and 20th-century buildings, many decorated with woodcarvings and bright frescoes, and wide avenues dotted with public squares and parks.

St. Lucia - Miami

​Nestled below the Pitons, twin peaks rising over 2,600 feet above the azure waters of the Caribbean, St. Lucia is an oasis of tropical calm. The island's capital, Castries, is a town of charming, pastel-colored colonial buildings, home to some 60,000. Yet despite its peaceful setting, St. Lucia has a turbulent and colorful history. Fierce Carib warriors overran the peaceful Arawaks in the 9th century. The first European settler, Francois Le Clerc, was a French buccaneer. Today this beautiful island welcomes visitors drawn to its exotic tropical landscape, superb beaches, crystalline waters, and colorful marine life.


May 6 - May 11
Athens, Greece - Athens, Greece

The past maintains a vibrant presence in the cradle of Western civilization. Atop the Acropolis, the serene Parthenon sails above the commotion of the modern city. The tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides were performed in the Theater of Dionysus at the foot of the Acropolis. On Pnyx Hill, citizens of a fledgling democracy gathered to cast their votes on Athens' destiny. Then there is the hustle and bustle of the modern city, a metropolis of 4.5 million that spreads out from the foot of Mt. Lycabettus and across the plain. Packed with busy shops and lively tavernas, modern Athens is a colorful counterpoint to classical Greece.

Cozumel, Mexico - Miami, Florida

​Mayan myth claims that Cozumel was home to the gods. Truly Cozumel is a place fit for the gods, with its dazzling white-sand beaches, ruined Mayan temples, exotic jungle wildlife, and crystalline waters teeming with tropical fish. Just offshore lay Palancar Reef, considered one of the most spectacular coral formations in all the Caribbean. Of course, the gods weren't the only individuals attracted to this terrestrial paradise: during its long and colorful history, Cozumel has been home to pirates, buccaneers, and freebooters, including Sir Henry Morgan and Jean Lafitte. Today's traveler will discover the same ravishing beauty and relaxation that entertained gods and pirates alike.

With a population of over five million people, Santiago sprawls at the feet of the snow-capped Andes. Inland lies the sun-kissed wine regions of Casablanca and Maipo Maipo Valley, Chile's internationally renowned wine district.

Bermuda - Rome, Italy

Your gateway to the eternal City, Civitavecchia has served as Rome's seaport since the 13th century.  The port has a long and venerable history.  The emperor Trajan built a pleasure villa near the modern city, while Bernini and Michelangelo designed the harbor fortifications.  Yet the Eternal City eternally beckons.  The ancient capital of the Western World and the center of Christianity for nearly 2,000 years, Rome provides an inexhaustible feast.  Visit the ruins of the Forum, view the splendors of the Sistine Chapel, or climb the Spanish Steps, once the hear of Rome's Bohemian Quarter.

Lima, Peru - Balboa, Panama - Limon, Costa Rica

​In 1535, Francisco Pizarro labeled the open plains where Lima now stands as inhospitable. Despite the verdict of the great conquistador, Lima became the center of imperial Spanish power, a "City of Kings" where 40 viceroys would rule as the direct representatives of the King of Spain. With independence in 1821, Lima became Peru's capital. Near Lima, one of the world's most desolate deserts is home to the famed drawings of Nazca. These drawings inspired Erik von Daniken's best-selling book "Chariots of the Gods." With mysteries seeming to be part of Peru's history, perhaps these "drawings" are in fact "the largest astronomy book in the world."

All Star Irish Charter Cruise

February 12 to February 19, 2022

Click link below for more info:
https://www.gertrudebyrnepromotions.com/
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!
