Join Astoria as she sets sail from Humberside and cruises to the glorious fjords of Western Norway. Here, in addition to some marvellous ports of call, you’ll enjoy a few wonderful days cruising through still waters.

After a day at sea, your Norwegian odyssey begins with a call at the former fishing capital Stavanger. Cruise through the dramatic scenery of Sognefjord to remote Flåm, home to the famously steep and winding Flåmsbana Mountain Railway. A call in idyllic Geiranger and a scenic cruise through Geirangerfjord are followed visits to the idyllic village of Olden on Nordfjord, and Åndalsnes on Romsdalfjord. Head ashore here for the chance to explore the pristine interior on an optional shore excursion. Astoria's last port, Bergen, offers you an opportunity to stroll through the ancient Bryggen area and perhaps take in the view from the summit of Mount Fløyen – a fitting finale to your wonderful voyage.
