Fabulous!! Nothing else to say but fabulous
I mostly used the 10-22mm wide angle. But I also used a 24mm prime, 50mm prime, and 100-400L Telephoto. I believe if you click on my pictures it will take you to the Flicker website that is hosting them and from there you can find which lens I used for each picture. Thanks for the kind words.Thank you so much for the info! I'm just beginning in photography and still trying to learn what lenses are best for which shots. On my last trip I found my 10-22mm gave me most of my favorite shots and I had never used it before. I'm going to stalk your photos to study up before my next trip.
Next stop was the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. There are a lot of stairs to climb down that you have to climb back up to go out.Chris, if we don't cross the bridge, will we really be missing out? Some in our party would have a hard time, and we are trying to decide if we should make them wait for us, or to just enjoy the view and skip the crossing the bridge.

Next up will be Giants Causeway.
I was at Carrick-a-rede ( same sailing as Chris). I walked all the way towards the bridge ( about 10 minutes). A staff from the Park suggested to me that if I did not want to cross the bridge, I could take the pathway to the right up the slope and enjoy the scenery there. A short and gentle climb up the slope will get you to the dead end of the pathway and I recall there is a bench for you to sit. The view of the bridge from there is really great. I am attempting to post a photo taken from that vantage point. Hope it worksThis picture is quite small and hard to make out. Can you post a larger picture? Thanks

Most of the cruisers had booked the Military Tattoo in Edinburgh while we were in Greenock. Our departure time was 2 am to allow passengers to return to the ship after the Tattoo.Thanks for the link. I took a look at the website but don't see the name of your tour listed. Was it discontinued?
We didn’t go to the Tattoo but booked an all day Highlands photo tour with Photo Walk Scotland. http://www.photowalkscotland.com/
I requested from our guide Tom that we get to experience Scotland and hopefully get some good photos. Tom accepted our challenge and came through again and again. This was the best tour we had on our whole 17 day trip. We were truly blown away by how beautiful the highlands are. The scenery was breathtaking, Our guide was more then qualified for leading us on this tour. As well as being an talented photographer Tom has his MA Hons in Social and Economic History. It was just the 2 of us with our guide all day. We left the ship at 7am and returned after midnight.
Our First stop, Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilchurn_Castle

This one is my favorite. My wife took this one with her Olympus camera on the auto settings.
Coming up more highlands, lots more.
Chris, if we don't cross the bridge, will we really be missing out? Some in our party would have a hard time, and we are trying to decide if we should make them wait for us, or to just enjoy the view and skip the crossing the bridge.

Fabulous pictures--you have a great eye. We did the British Isles cruise with Princess two years ago, and I have also traveled several times to Scotland and Ireland on land trips so I recognize many of the places from your photos. You really captured the images as well as the spirit of these special places. Thanks for sharing your trip and allowing me to relive some great memories.
I don’t think you would be missing out on anything by not crossing the bridge. The best view is where janette went. Have fun on your trip!thanks

We were there just in time, the bells were silenced the following week.

We recommend going to Westminster Abbey first thing in the morning to avoid the lines. No photography is allowed inside any of the cathedrals in London. It was quite the experience not to be missed.

My family and I are doing this cruise next year but it ports out of Paris. Does anybody know how long the trip is from the London port right into London?
