Many ports such as Bergen, Trondheim, and Stavanger have centuries-old stories narrating their role in Norway's maritime history.

Step into the realm of Norway, where every wave whispers a tale from the days of the mighty Vikings.

Norway

Norway's magical allure as a cruise destination is largely attributed to its phenomenal fjords like the Geiranger Fjord and Sognefjord, carved by glaciers over millennia. These majestic fjords are the heart and soul of the Norwegian landscape, nestled between towering mountains and cascading waterfalls. The sight of the Northern Lights painting the Arctic skies in Tromso or Alta is nothing short of celestial poetry, while the Midnight Sun in Nordfjord offers a mesmerizing spectacle of nature's grandeur. Andalsnes, Eidfjord, and Olden, set against the backdrop of these dramatic fjords, only add to the ethereal beauty that is unique to Norway. The main cruise ports in Norway are Alesund, Alta, Andalsnes, Arendal, Bergen, Bodo, Crossing The Arctic Circle, Eidfjord, Flam, Geiranger, Geiranger Fjord (Hellesylt & Geiranger), Hammerfest, Harstad, Haugesund, Hellesylt , Honningsvag, Jan Mayen Island, Kirkenes, Kristiansand, Kristiansund, Leknes (Lofoten Archipelago), Longyearbyen (Svalbard Archipelago), Maloy, Molde, Narvik, Nordfjord, Nordfjordeid, Olden, Oslo, Romsdalsfjord, Rosendal, Sandnes, Sandnessjoen, Skarsvag, Skjolden, Sognefjord, Sortland, Spitsbergen (Svalbard Archipelago), Stavanger, Storstappen Island, Svalbard Archipelago, Svolvaer (Lofoten Archipelago), Tromso, Trondheim, Ulvik, Vik, and many more.

In Norway, every cruise stop is an opportunity for a thrilling adventure.
