Skjolden, Norway

Skjolden, Norway In Port: 10 July 2024

Skjolden is a serene village nestled among mountains. Arrive there via Sognefjord, the world's longest navigable fjord, putting you at the heart of Norway's majestic scenery. Skjolden itself actually sits within the Lusterfjord, an arm of the Sognefjord, and your arrival is truly mesmerising. Forested slopes lead down towards the still waters, summer meadows and fruit-bearing farmlands extend from their edge in patchworks of brilliant green, made so vibrant by the melt water of two glaciers
Lustrafjorden

Lustrafjorden Cruise by: 10 July 2024

The Lustrafjord is the innermost branch of the Sognefjord and is one of the most beautiful areas in Norway with its numerous mountains and glaciers. Scenic cruising includes local villages, old farms and cascading waterfalls.
Sognefjord

Sognefjord Cruise by: 10 July 2024

Here is your chance to experience this unique World Heritage Site, sailing the same waters of Norse and Viking legends. This is also the opportunity to explore the many natural wonders whilst ashore. Take a walking trail at your own pace, you’re never far from a memorable sight or place of interest, or choose from a selection of boat trips that take you to the islands in the fjord’s tributaries.
Alesund, Norway

Alesund, Norway In Port: 11 July 2024

Ålesund is renowned for its beautiful art nouveau architecture. This owes to a devastating fire that burned a large part of the city to the ground in 1904. The entire town was subsequently rebuilt in the fashionable art nouveau style of the time. Take the opportunity to wander Ålesund’s charming cobblestone streets and admire the numerous spires, towers and highly-ornate buildings. Norway is a seafood nation and Ålesund is its fisheries capital. Take the opportunity to visit the Norwegian Aquarium - built directly into the rocky coastline, the aquarium is also an architectural marvel. Due to excellent oceanic conditions along the Norwegian coast, the aquarium features a colourful and exciting range of fish and fauna, including octopus, seals and penguins.
Akureyri, Iceland

Akureyri, Iceland In Port: 13 July 2024

Established in the mid-17th century, Akureyri is home to Iceland's largest fishing company and its biggest shipyard. Viking sagas, spectacular fjords, snow-capped mountains... Iceland's Capital of the North is also surprisingly mild and the so-called Green Town is made for those long summer days.
Eyjafjordur

Eyjafjordur Cruise by: 13 July 2024

On your journey from Akureyri, experience the beauty of Eyjafjordur as your cruise through Iceland’s longest fjord. Enjoying a wealth of wildlife due to its fertile waters, it is one of the best places in Iceland for whale and puffin watching.
Hrisey

Hrisey Cruise by: 13 July 2024

Journey past the remote island of Hrisey, widely hailed as “The Pearl of Eyjafjordur”, due to its beauty and tranquility. The island itself is about seven kilometres long and 2,5 kilometres wide yet is rich in birdlife and a haven for more than 40 species of birds.
grundarfjordur, Iceland

grundarfjordur, Iceland In Port: 14 July 2024

The charming small fishing village of Grundarfjörður is located in the middle of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula and thus provides easy access to Stykkishólmur, Snæfellsbær and the Snæfellsnes National Park. Its best-known landmark is undoubtedly the peak of Mt. Kirkjufell. Translated as ‘church mountain,’ Kirkjufell is the most easily recognizable peak, and one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland. During summer months a Viking Village is built in the centre of town where Viking re-enactments occur quite regularly. The surrounding sea is rich with birdlife & marine life throughout the year.
Reykjavik

Reykjavik In Port: 15 July 2024

A mass of brightly coloured corrugated iron roofs is a familiar sight here in the world's most northern capital city. Experience the incredible views of the Golden Waterfall and wonder at the spouting geysers. Join in a national pastime - shopping! Designer labels, local wool, gourmet treats, even a flea market, it's all right here.
Cork (tours from Ringaskiddy)

Cork (tours from Ringaskiddy) In Port: 19 July 2024

In the southwest of Ireland, Cork is a city packed with charm. You might see it as a gateway into the rolling emerald countryside all around that’s dotted with villages, castles and a tale or two. You might start your discovery by stepping back four hundred years at Elizabeth Fort. When it was built in 1601, it looked across to Cork; the city has since absorbed it, making it an even better vantage point. Blackrock Castle is another memorable fortification here. Built on ground jutting out into the River Lee, it was designed as protection against marauding pirates. Today it’s a dreamy stack of curved towers that’s since become a museum, and is even home to an observatory. You could unlock the harshness of nineteenth century convict life at Cork City Gaol. Within imposing walls, models of wardens and inmates add atmosphere to the cramped cells and corridors of this former prison. It closed in 1923 after 99 years, reborn four years later as a radio station. The Governor’s House now displays a beautiful collection of antique wireless sets. The English Market is a celebration of both grand Victorian architecture and the local produce stacked temptingly under its high vaulted ceilings. If you’re peckish, light bites are in plentiful supply, perhaps ideal for al fresco lunch in nearby Bishop Lacey Park if the sun’s smiling down. Browse exhibitions and collections within the landmark red-brick Crawford Municipal Art Gallery, once Cork Customs House. The Lewis Glucksman Gallery, meanwhile, is exceptional inside and out. Part of the University College Cork, its exterior features beautiful curves of untreated timber sat on a limestone base with angular steel bay windows. Perhaps Cork’s defining landmark is St. Fin Barre's Cathedral. The majestic neo-Gothic cathedral towers up from the site on which the saint is believed to have created a monastic settlement in the seventh century. Three spires loom high above Cork’s low-rise skyline, and medieval gargoyles stare down at all below. Then again, you might meet leave Cork to meet some of its neighbours. Less than 20 miles due south is Kinsale, a quaint coastal town of pedestrianised streets whose exuberantly colourful houses are an absolute joy. Its history is darker; eleven miles offshore in May 1915 a German U-boat torpedoed the Cunard ship Lusitania. Many head for the town of Waterford, around 75 miles to the northeast, where the manufacture of its world-renowned crystal dates back to 1783. Then there’s Blarney Castle, only five or six miles to the northwest. A walk around its grounds is perfectly charming, but you should really climb the steps and kiss the Blarney Stone, with the promise of eloquence that it brings. Just over 50 miles to the west, Killarney National Park sets some of southern Ireland’s most stunning landscapes before you. With rugged mountains in the distance, its serene lakes and ancient oak forests create an extraordinary picture of beauty.
Southampton

Southampton Disembark: 21 July 2024

The UK's premier passenger ship port, located in the picturesque English county of Hampshire, Southampton is a vibrant waterfront city, serviced by direct trains to London, an airport, and an international cruise terminal. Explore the city’s maritime heritage and links to RMS Titanic in the Sea City Museum, see contemporary British art in the Cultural Quarter, or walk the medieval walls in the Old Town. Further afield you’ll find The New Forest National Park, Winchester Cathedral, Stonehenge, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the Isle of Wight, while the city’s thriving craft beer and culinary scene will leave you spoilt for choice.
