Fjords of Norway

and the Midnight Sun
aboard the Crown Princess
Plus an overnight and tour in London

Tour Highlights

A voyage along Norways’s pristine coastline offers some of the most dramatic landscapes and stunning vistas in the world. It has been called the "World's Most Beautiful Sea Voyage". 
From the fjord-indented south to the rocky Arctic coastline of Finnmark in the north, this land abounds with natural treasures: thundering waterfalls cascading down steep mountains; ice-blue glaciers hemmed in by towering mountains, fast flowing rivers teeming with salmon, and emerald green fjords everywhere you look. You will experience the sights, sounds and flavours of Norway’s “Midsommar” (Summer Solstice), a natural phenomenon that occurs during the summer that can be likened to a prolonged sunset and sunrise occurring simultaneously.

We will sail in luxury aboard theCrown Princess. Featuring all the amenities of a resort hotel, Princess ships offer a perfect balance of tradition and innovation. Their award-winning shore excursions and fascinating onboard programs will bring the culture and colours of Norway to life. You will find that Princess can introduce you to the next port on the horizon like no one else.

Dining aboard a Princess ship is a joyful celebration in the truest sense with every dish “designed for fresh’ and crafted to exceed even the most discerning appetite. From hand-tossed pizza to dazzling multi-course gourmet dinners, you will enjoy freshly prepared cuisine that celebrates the history of Norway. In addition, the ship has evening entertainment to suit every mood.

Following our wonderful cruise, we will overnight in a centrally located London hotel, with dinner, breakfast and a panoramic city tour included.

* All shore excursions are optional and may be purchased in advance on Princess Cruises’ website or on board the ship.

Tentative Itinerary

We depart for London.
We arrive in London and transfer by coach to Southampton where we board our ship, the Crown Princess. This evening we enjoy our first delicious dinner on board.
A wonderful day at sea to relax and get acquainted with the ship and your fellow passengers.
Quaint shops, restaurants and the fish market surrounding the exquisite harbour are some of the reasons why Stavanger is known as one of two European “Capitals of Culture”. See the Pulpit Rock - a natural rock formation standing 600 meters above the sea with a 25-meter square plateau. To visit the Rock it takes about two hours by foot, but the rock formation can also be enjoyed from the sea on our ship.
Sognefjord is the largest and most well known fjord in Norway, the longest open (ice free) fjord in the world and it’s on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. This land abounds with natural treasures: thundering waterfalls cascading down steep mountains; ice-blue glaciers hemmed in by sky-reaching mountains; and emerald green fjords everywhere you look. There are also unique museums, art galleries, heritage sites and stave churches that can be explored throughout the region.
 We cruise the waters of the Nordfjord and visit the village of Olden. Here you may take a stunning boat trip on the blue-green waters of Olden Lake, where you may view the mountain waterfalls and gaze in awe at the Jostedalsbreen Glacier - a remnant of the last Ice Age. Or, visit the Jostedalsbreen National Park Center, which features educational exhibits and 3D models of the park's glacial flows. 

Two of Norway’s greatest landmarks, the Nidaros Cathedral and the Archbishop’s Palace, are here in Norway’s first capital. Despite being Norway’s third largest city, wild animals can be seen. Otters and beavers thrive, and foxes, moose and deer are not uncommon sights.
A day to enjoy the endless array of facilities and activities aboard our ship.
This town is the last one before Norway’s mysterious North Cape, beyond which lies only icy waters before one reaches the North Pole. This expanse of wilderness is marred by nothing save an occasional herd of reindeer. The North Cape experiences a Midnight Sun, which creates round the clock daylight from May to the beginning of August.
The Arctic Cathedral of Tromsdalen, the Tromso Museum and the world-renowned Northern Lights Observatory are a few of the main attractions here. Nicknamed “The Paris of the North”, Tromso is a lively city located spectacularly on an island surrounded by mountains, fjords and other islands in all directions.
The Lofoten Islands lie entirely above the Arctic Circle, and are known for their small villages off the beaten path. You can visit the Viking Museum in Borg - a property believed to have belonged to an important Viking chieftain 1,500 years ago. Today the museum displays a reconstruction of his house.
Surrounded by tall mountains and situated on the Romsdalsfjord, Andalsnes is often referred to as "The Alp town by the fjord". From here you can visit nearby Stigfoss Falls - one of the most famous waterfalls in Norway, plummeting 600 feet down the mountainside. Or take a train ride on the Trollveggen railway line, and pass through Norway's most dramatic scenery to view jagged mountains, sparkling rivers, tumbling waterfalls and the famous Troll Peaks and Troll Wall.  

Beyond Bergen’s red-tiled roofs and picturesque waterfront are some of Norway’s most stunning fjords. Top attractions include the Bryggen, the Floibanen Funicular, the Fish Market, the Edvard Grieg Museum at Troldhaugen and Fantoft Stave Church.
We disembark in the morning in Southampton and proceed to London where we enjoy a panoramic sightseeing tour. Highlights include Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Canadian War Memorial and much more. Our tour finishes at our centrally located hotel where we will have some time at leisure before our Farewell Dinner.
We fly home with Air Canada.
