The UK is perhaps the best-connected island nation in the world, enjoying an unparalleled range of air links, as well as a tunnel to Continental Europe. Yet the British people also cherish sea travel – whether watching the White Cliffs of Dover retreating at the start of a great adventure, catching a first glimpse of the palaces of Venice or viewing a haunting Vietnamese seascape. An open deck also provides the best way to arrive in cities such as Hong Kong,New York and Sydney, whose iconic landmarks sharpen into focus as seafarers approach.
