The city of Belfast was a great Victorian success story, an industrial boomtown whose prosperity was built on trade – especially linen and shipbuilding. In fact, the Titanic was built here and 2012 marked the 100th anniversary of the ill-fated ship. For many years during the past three decade’s news about Belfast meant news about The Troubles, but in 1994 a ceasefire brought peace to the city. Today, it is one of the most vibrant cities on the island of Ireland. Belfast has benefitted for major investments, many associated with the tourist industry, so the city has plenty to offer from excellent hotels, restaurants, bars and shops. Magnificent Victorian structures still line the streets of the city center, but you will also see some very trendy establishments mixed in.

To the west of the city you will see some physical scars of the Troubles, from the peace line that divides Catholic and Protestant West Belfast to the murals on every gable wall – this is a fascinating part of the city where you come to understand why the Troubles began in the first place.

Other sites worth visiting are the newly opened Titanic Centre, City Hall and Ulster Museum which dominates the city center. It was from a platform outside City Hall that President Bill Clinton made an emotional address to the people of Northern Ireland during his historic 1995 visit. The City Hall was designed by Alfred Brumwell Thomas and was built from Portland stone from 1898 to 1906 and today is the home of Belfast City Council.

The Ulster Museum has just reopened following a 3 year UK Sterling 17 million redevelopment project. Come face to face with dinosaurs, meet an Egyptian Mummy and see modern masterpieces with a visit to the Ulster Museum. As Northern Ireland’s treasure house of the past and present, the museum is home to a rich collection of art, history and natural sciences and free to all visitors. From Ireland to the South Pacific, ancient relics to hands on activities, the museum offers something for everyone from the simply curious to the enthusiast.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
