Itinerary

Day 1

Board Astoria in Hull today, and settle in to your cabin as the ship prepares to set sail.

Day 2

vSpend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.

Day 3

Enjoy spectacular scenery as Astoria cruises through the 100km-long Hardangerfjord to Eidfjord. Here you can go ashore to enjoy an optional excursion through the beautiful surrounding countryside, perhaps taking in the famous Voringfossen waterfalls.

Day 4

The tiny village of Flam, at the inner end of Aurlandsfjord, welcomes Astoria today. Here you'll have the chance to board the world-famous Flamsbana Mountain Railway for the journey to Myrdal. Later this afternoon, the ship navigates her way into stunning Naeroyfjord where some of fjordland's prettiest scenery awaits.

Day 5

Today you’ll call at Olden. This tiny village of clapbpoard houses and rolling green pastures is the starting point for an excursion, through scenic countryside, to the famous Briksdal Glacier. This immense frozen cliff is actually just one of the 50 arms of the Jostedal Glacier, which covers almost 200 square miles of the surrounding landscape in an vast, slowly shifting blanket of ice.

Day 6

Exquisite Geirangerfjord is one of the smaller fjords, but is undeniably among the most beautiful. Today Astoria cruises its twists and turns through a landscape marked by crashing waterfalls and ancient villages like Hellesylt and Geiranger. Disembark in Geiranger to take in the beauty of it all, or to enjoy an optional excursion.

Day 7

Compact and friendly, Bergen was once a great trading city within the Hanseatic League. It remains Norway's second city and, despite being sheltered from the sea by its seven hills and outlying islands, is unashamedly nautical in outlook. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.

Day 8

A final day at sea, reliving the memories of your Norwegian cruise.

Day 9

Bid farewell to Astoria and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise. Back to top
