The Cruise

You’ll be stunned by the sheer scale and magnificence of Norway’s mighty fjords. This cruise will introduce you to breath-taking views of cascading waterfalls, sheer grey cliffs and majestic mountains. Visit pretty fjord villages set among green fields and Bergen with its busy harbour and historic Hanseatic buildings.

Enjoy relaxing days at sea as Columbus heads for the serene and tranquil Hardangerfjord. Your first stop is a day in Rotterdam where there is a whole host of attractions - a city of modern architecture and delightful culture. In Eidfjord you gaze at rugged mountain slopes up to 1,900 metres high. The small town is the gateway to Hardangervidda, which is the largest high mountain plateau in Europe. Nearby is Vøringsfossen, one of Norway’s most famous waterfalls. Your cruise continues along Sognefjord with more spectacular views. Your stop in Flåm, nestled between high cliffs, might well be the highlight of your cruise where you can take an optional Railway tour. The delightful old Hanseatic port of Bergen is our final call where you can explore the historic Bryggen district, the heart of the medieval city with its beautifully restored wooden warehouses, boutiques and workshops. Choose the funicular railway up Mount Fløyen for a spectacular panoramic view of the city.

Evening Entertainment

The Palladium Show Lounge on board Columbus hosts a tantalising nightly entertainment programme, with talented speciality acts and guest performers providing passengers with the perfect soundtrack to their evening. If you ever want to take a break from their thrilling shows and glitzy cabaret, however, you will be able to choose from live piano and violin music, organised card games and a host of other relaxing alternatives.
