Cruising Karmsund

Cruising Karmsund, bridge, Karsundet

Karmsund, a narrow waterway separating Karmoey Island from Haugesund, is only navigable by smaller ships such as those in the Fred. Olsen fleet. 

So, while guests on board larger cruise ships have to spend more time out in the open sea to pass by Karmoey, on a Fred. Olsen cruise to this beautiful region you can enjoy memorable scenic cruising through Karmsund. 

As you sail the strait you'll take in views of pretty towns and gorgeous countryside scenes stretched along the shores, see rugged islands and islets up-close, and pass under the impressive Karmsund Bridge all while relaxing on board your ship.
