  • Days 2-3 - At sea

    As we sail towards Norway, you’re free to do as much (or as little) as you wish. Maybe start your day off with a brisk walk around the deck. Or opt for a yoga class. Spend the afternoon learning a craft, or perfecting your golf swing. After your choice of dinner, you can catch a show or dance into the night.

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Day 4 - Ålesund, Norway

    We’ll arrive in Ålesund early this morning. This waterside town is all about art nouveau architecture - a wander through its streets will reveal turrets, towers, spires and ornate balconies. Warm up with a coffee or hot chocolate in one of the cosy cafés and perhaps pop into an art gallery. Or bundle up for a walk up Mount Aksla - your reward for scaling the 418 steps will be wonderful views across the town and island-speckled waters beyond.

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Day 5 - Trondheim

    Trondheim was Norway’s first capital, founded more than a thousand years ago by a Viking king. It’s a walkable city, with most attractions squeezed onto a small island accessible via a series of bridges. There’s plenty to do: step inside the medieval cathedral; browse the unique shops and vintage stores in historic Bakklandet; admire the brightly coloured warehouses down by the water; or stop by a museum or two.

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Day 6 - At sea

    Today’s free as we continue our cruise. Enjoy a hearty breakfast then take your pick from the variety of activities on board. Try your hand at bridge, bingo or deck quoits. Or indulge in a traditional afternoon tea to while away your time. Top off the day with a sumptuous dinner or a simple tasty buffet.

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Days 7-8 - Tromsø (overnight)

    After crossing the Arctic Circle, you’ll now have two days to enjoy the delights of Tromsø. Our stay here coincides with Sami National Day - we’ll have the chance to experience the celebrations, which see yoik choirs performing and locals donning the traditional Sami dress. Staying overnight means we’ll have an opportunity to go in search of the Northern Lights. If we’re lucky, we’ll catch a glimpse of them dancing across the night sky - an unforgettable experience. There will also be time to see the iconic Arctic Cathedral, take the cable car to the peak of Storsteinen Mountain (expect stunning panoramas over the snowy scenes below), or visit the fascinating Perspektivet Museum.

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Days 9-10 - Alta (overnight)

    Alta is considered one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights, so an overnight stay gives us another chance to try and spot the elusive aurora. The city has a rich Sami heritage, so it’s a great place to learn a little more about the culture. The surrounding landscapes are ideal for sledding, so you might choose to take an exhilarating dog-sledding excursion through the snow-blanketed fields and forests. We set sail early afternoon on day 10.

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Day 11 - At sea

    Keep your brain active with the morning quiz, then perfect your dance moves in the afternoon with a beginners’ class. After dinner, you could continue the dancing theme and join the hosted dancing, or choose to watch the professionals instead.

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Day 12 - Kristiansund

    This morning, we’ll call in at Kristiansund. Spread across four bridge-connected islands on the Western Cape, it’s a lovely place to spend a few hours. Stroll past the opera house (Norway’s oldest), soak up the views along the harbour, and uncover the history of klippfisk (salted cod) at the town’s quirky museum. Kristiansund also acts as a gateway to the Atlantic Ocean Road. Weaving between islands and islets, it’s one of the most photographed highways in the world (and, on a windy or stormy day, one of the most dramatic).

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Days 13-14 - At sea

    After a fascinating cruise we sail home. If you’re still full of energy, there‘s lots to fill your time - from quizzes, games and music recitals to walks on deck and dance classes. And of course there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy all the tasty food options.

    Black Watch (3.5-star)

  • Day 15 Southampton

    We arrive back in Southampton early this morning, disembarking after breakfast. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
