Norway Cruises- Bergen and beyond.
When your ship anchors in Bergen you will see why people from all over the World travel there. This beautiful old fishing port with its big old traditional building gives you a true sense of Norway. If you get to spend some time there make sure you eat at one of the amazing restaurants along the sea front, or take the cable car to the top of the mountain.

Many Norway cruises also take in the island of Iceland. You will sail from Norway over to Iceland and experience some of the majestic nature that Iceland has to offer. If its entering one of the numerous Fjords on the East coast, or sailing around to the capital of Reykjavik, you will not be disappointed with the wonders of Iceland.
Excursions onto the mainland are highly recommended. If it’s a short day tour around the Golden Circle, while taking in the geyser and waterfalls, its an option not to miss. Day tours into the lava and ice caves are also a must if you have a little more time on the island.
Whichever options you take, a Norway cruise will be a part of your memory for many years into the future.
