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 the charming and quirky Amsterdam with its beautiful gabled houses and merchants’ mansions lining serene, tree-lined canals. 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 stop in Flåm, nestled between high cliffs, might well be the highlight of your cruise where you can take an optional Railway tour. The pretty village of Geiranger sits on what is considered to be the most beautiful fjord in Norway. Your cruise continues along Sognefjord with more spectacular views. 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.
Soul at Sea
International headliners The Three Degrees will be joining CMV Columbus for a special Soul at Sea Themed Cruise: “We are looking forward to performing to our fans and new audiences and hope our show and songs will be enjoyed - of course we will be including the songs that people always request, such as When Will I See You Again, Dirty Ol' Man, Take Good Care of Yourself, Year of Decision and so on. But we are also really looking forward to enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Norwegian fjords so this will be a very special week for all of us- looking forward to seeing you! Love, Valerie, Helen & Freddie".
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.
