New 2022 Norwegian Sailings

24th February 2021 | Focus Story
Norway Spring Cruises 2022

Explorations of Norway are something we like to think we do rather well. It's the home of the Olsen family, with our smaller ships able to reach places larger vessels can't – like the awe-inspiring cliffs of Lysefjord.

With first hand knowledge of fascinating folklore and hidden gems, we build in scenic diversions and work with locals to create unforgettable on shore experiences. Langfoss Waterfall, for example, is well worth its 3 hour detour through size-restricted Åkrafjord, while the chance to delve into the folklore surrounding Torghatten is a cruise highlight.

Launching exclusively to Oceans members on 28th January, and on general release from the 29th January, we're launching new cruises which make the most of spring in the region, when the fjords come to life and waterfalls roar with meltwater from the peaks above.

These sailings also benefit from a choice of free drinks or on board spend as part of our cruise sale.
