“These itineraries have been hand-crafted to maximise the experience of our guests on board by taking them to the very best places at the very best times.

“Throughout the summer months, guests will be able to see puffins before they migrate from Iceland, the awe-inspiring Strokkur Geyser and Goðafoss Waterfall, admire the beautiful blue hydrangeas synonymous with the Azores and take the funicular railway to the top of Mount Fløyen for a hike in Norway.

“There truly is a cruise to suit every guest.”
