Northern Europe


Whether it's the Baltics, Scandinavia or Russia, Northern Europe Cruises are the Ideal Way to Explore the Best This Diverse Area of the World Has to Offer

Cruising Europe offers a unique view of Northern Europe's diversity - whether you're drawn to cathedrals or the countryside, this sublime region will captivate you. Your small ship cruise may take you from the medieval towns and museums of the Baltic to the gilded palaces of Scandinavia and Russia, but natural wonders also abound. Witness the fiery spectacles of Iceland, or the wild beauty and wildlife of Norway and the Scottish Isles. You can cruise down the Thames from London or transit the Kiel Canal aboard our smaller ships. Take the best of European cruises to discover both the highlights and subtler charms of these historic shores.

Norway. It’s big, it’s bold, and by golly, it’s beautiful. A cruise in Norway’s fabled fjords and shores is the stuff of magic. The western part of Norway is home to the iconic fjords. See the mountains and waterfalls cascade down to the green-blue water. The most famous ones are the world heritage listed Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord, the Hardangerfjord and Nordfjord, and the 205 kilometres long Sognefjord. But you will also love the less-visited fjords. The region has hundreds of them! Watch as the northern lights come alive, dancing across the night sky in winter or as the midnight sun paints the landscape in a golden hue for everlasting summer nights.

Iceland. Glaciers, hot springs, fermented shark … Iceland’s list of must see’s and do’s is long. Undoubtedly one of the best travel destinations on the planet, Iceland has been topping the bucket list for some time. Soulful scenery abounds, unspoilt nature comes with a capital N, there’s no light or air pollution and over half the population (including government officials) believe in elves. So to say that this destination is magical would be an understatement. But it’s not all about the great outdoors; Icelandic culture is rich and varied. Going back to long before the arrival of Norsemen in 874 AD, this is a land where Viking traditions still play a large part in everyday life. So all aboard! 

Baltic. St. Petersburg. Stockholm. Copenhagen. Helsinki. Tallinn … These fab five trip off the tongue like a who’s who of Baltic beauty. Think cobbled streets filled with jumbles of bicycles, ornate palaces that date back centuries and untamed beauty as far as the eye can see. Think long white nights that spill into languid summer days. Think melting pot: equal parts language, gastronomy, tradition and diversity. But more than anything, think of a region where the countries may be close but the cultures a miles apart. Whether you want cathedrals or countryside, our Baltic cruises will captivate you.

Scotland. As a cruise destination, Scotland is undoubtedly up there with the best. Breathtaking scenery, stunning cities, haunting history, UNESCO World Heritage sites, and a variety of ports large and small make Scotland the perfect cruise destination. Scotland's cruise ports are ideally located for inclusion in Britain and Ireland itineraries, transatlantic re-positioning, or for combining with cruises to Iceland, Faroe Islands or the Norwegian Fjords and Europe.
