Cruise Highlights: This Norway and Scotland mini cruise travels to Bergen, Kirkwall and Edinburgh (Rosyth). With a range of optional shore tours, your cruise holiday can be personalised to suit your interests. Setting sail from Newcastle, the first port of call is Bergen.

As Norway’s second city, Bergen is one of the most scenic. Its rainbow painted houses are complimented by its natural setting – surrounded by seven mountains and seven fjords. Hardangerfjord, one of Norway’s most popular fjords is close by, as is Mount Fløien.

The cruise then moves on to Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands. Located 6 miles from the north coast of Scotland the archipelago is made up of 70 islands of which only 17 are inhabited. Plunging cliffs, white sand beaches and prehistoric sites give Orkney a character all of its own. St Magnus Cathedral dominates Kirkwall, the island’s capital, and its quaint narrow streets simply cry out to be explored. With Balfour Castle close at hand and the northern most whisky distillery in Scotland, you’ll have a tough decision deciding where to start.

This Norway and Scotland cruise then moves on to Edinburgh (Rosyth), bringing this mini cruise to an end.

A complimentary one-way PortLink coach transfer is available at the beginning or end of this cruise to / from the Cruise Terminals. Seats must be pre-booked by telephoning PortLink directly on: 01794 524 031.
