Make your way to Avonmouth for embarkation and this evening's sailing.
The port-resort of Cobh is gateway to the great Irish trading city of Cork. Discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland on a shore excursion, or perhaps head into the beautiful rolling countryside beyond to the fashionable resort of Kinsale or famous Blarney Castle for a chance to kiss the Blarney Stone and receive "the gift of the gab".
The Scillies are one of Britain's most verdant corners, bursting into colour some weeks before the rest of the country. Go ashore to explore tiny Hugh Town on St Mary's and the flower-strewn byways beyond. Take an excursion to stunning Tresco, where the world-famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest sub-tropical plant collection.
Today Discovery anchors off the pretty capital of sun-kissed Jersey. Step ashore to explore the shops and stores, or take an excursion to discover the island, which is also home to the world-renowned Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.
The exquisite little port of Honfleur, with its picturesque old harbour, is the entrance to the stunning Normandy countryside. An excursion will be offered to the Impressionist painter Monet's beautiful house and garden at Giverny, the inspiration for many of the artist's most famous works.
Today is spent at sea.
Discovery arrives back in Bristol, at the end of a wonderful few days' cruising.
In 2013, 20,000-tonne Discovery sets out on a series of exciting departures from ports around the UK, on her first season of cruises. With her classic profile, eight passenger decks, and accommodation for 700 passengers, Discovery is a smaller ship built in traditional style, and offers the perfect 'home from home' for a memorable holiday.
