The 1,400-passenger vessel, which was acquired last year from Holland America Line along with Borealis, will also sail a New Year Escape to the Canaries voyage on January 4, out of Southampton.

Shorter sailings are also included in the programme. Prices for the Touring Scenic Ireland In Five Nights cruise, departing Liverpool on April 14, start from £649. Ports of call include Cobh, Galway and Belfast.

The line is also offering passengers the choice between a free all-inclusive drinks package or up to £250 per person to spend on board.

Clare Ward, the line’s director of product and customer service, said: “We have been working closely with our destination partners and the UK government when it comes to our future itineraries.

“Our journey planners have worked exceptionally hard in curating these new sailings, placing as much focus on the joy of the journey as the destinations themselves.

“These sailings will also be a great opportunity for us to showcase our new ships, which is why we are pleased to offer an all-inclusive drinks package or on board spending credit, to help our guests make the most of the many newly-refurbished bars, lounges and facilities on board.”
