Itinerary

Day 1

Board Astoria in Poole today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.

Day 2

Astoria arrives in French waters to call at Dunkirk. Spend the day exploring this historic city, which will forever be associated with the amazing 1940 rescue of the British Expeditionary Forces.

Day 3

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

Day 4

Hardangerfjord stretches over 100 kilometres into the Norwegian interior. Head out on deck to take in the full majesty of its epic landscape, where sheer, forested mountainsides plunge into still waters. Astoria's port for the day will be Rosendal, a pretty village that's home to the historic Baroniet Rosendal - a charming 17th-century manor house surrounded by elegant grounds and gardens.

Day 5

The remote village of Flam is set in one of Sognefjord’s most remote corners. From here, you might enjoy an unforgettable excursion, boarding the world-famous Flamsbana Mountain Railway, for the beautiful journey to Myrdal, before joining a coach to travel through yet more breathtaking scenery.

Day 6

Today’s call is at Olden. This is the stopping-off point for a trip through the beautiful surrounding countryside to the famous Briksdal Glacier, part of the vast Jostedalsbreen ice-pack, which broods over the eastern reaches of the fjord.

Day 7

This morning Astoria docks in Bergen. This ancient Hanseatic city of cobbled streets and medieval houses was the birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg. 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.

Days 8 and 9

A final two days are spent at sea, no doubt reliving the memories your cruise holiday as Astoria heads for home.

Day 10

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

Accommodation

Astoria

Beautiful, 550-passenger MV Astoria is every inch the perfect cruise vessel. Originally a Transatlantic liner, now restored and lovingly maintained as a premium-rated cruise ship, Astoria is both small enough to offer a friendly atmosphere, and large enough to offer a relaxed environment to ensure your holiday enjoyment. She's every inch the perfect home from home for your memorable cruise holiday.

The cabins on board Astoria offer accommodation to suit a range of pockets and preferences. Each passenger cabin offers private facilities with shower and bath, a TV, a hairdryer and personal safe. Superior and Deluxe cabins and Suites offer extra touches such as mini-bars fridges, bathrobes and slippers and even champagne to toast your arrival on board. Outside cabins offer picture windows and portholes. Passengers who book a Junior Suite will also enjoy Priority Embarkation, a welcome bottle of champagne and fresh flowers, priority boarding at tender ports, and a special 'At Your Leisure' disembarkation service and complimentary UK daily or Sunday newspaper on the day they disembark. In addition, passengers who choose to book Astoria's Owners Presidential Suite will receive a complimentary laundry service, will be served pre-dinner hors-d'oeuvres each evening, enjoy complimentary DVD hire from the ship's library, a well stocked bookshelf for holiday reading and confirmed ship's restaurant seating requests and shore excursion reservations (on tours with at least 40 participants).
