Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland and is set on the River Lagan. Historically, the city of Belfast was a great Victorian success story, an industrial boomtown whose prosperity was built on trade—especially linen and shipbuilding. The Titanic was built here, giving Belfast, for a time, the nickname “Titanic Town.” The city suffered greatly during the conflict called “the Troubles”, but latterly has undergone a sustained period of calm, free from the intense political violence of former years, and substantial economic and commercial growth.

Cruise Prince Christian Sound, Greenland

Connecting the Denmark Strait with Davis Strait, Prince Christian Sound offers a protected course from southeastern to southwestern Greenland, and is one of South Greenland’s most dramatic natural features. On either side of the Sund, waterfalls stream down sharp, wrinkled mountainsides. Depending on weather conditions, icebergs that glitter in the sun may be constant companions during the passage. Born of compacted ancient snows that formed glaciers and now calve into the sound at the glacier’s edge, each iceberg is different from the next.
