Join Golden Horizon for its dress rehearsal seven-night cruise along the South Coast as she make final preparations for her inaugural season starting in the UK in July 2021

On this dress-rehearsel voyage Golden Horizon and its on-baord
team will be making final preparations for her inaugural season
starting in the UK in July 2021.
The ship departs from Portsmouth and heads west towards
Weymouth, passing the Isle of Wight and the sandy beaches of
Bournemouth. At Weymouth, you could walk the pebbles of Chesil
Beach, a natural barrier protecting Weymouth Bay from the swell of
the Atlantic, or simply relax on the sands of the Victorian
Our next stop is Falmouth where we'll overnight to give you
ample opportunity for exploring southern Cornwall's spectacular
coastline. The town itself has a rich history of pirate activity,
and the nearby Lizard Peninsula offers craggy cliff tops,
white-sand beaches and astonishingly clear-blue waters.
Travelling up the Roseland Heritage Coast, we'll dock in Fowey -
a picturesque little town set on a steep hillside above the mouth
of the River Fowey. Here, indulge in classic British fish and
chips, visit 16th-century castle ruins, or walk some of the
gorgeous coastal path to pretty, secluded beaches.
Dartmouth is our next port of call, with its great museums and
twin castles at the mouth of the River Dart, and our voyage ends in
Poole, Dorset - a great jumping-off point to explore the Jurassic
Coast or Brownsea Island.
Your home throughout will be the luxurious Golden Horizon, a
near replica of a 1913-built ocean-faring ship, which combines the
charm and romance of a classical vessel, with the food and service
you expect of a modern ship.
