Hamburg
Nestled along the beautiful Elbe River lies exquisite Hamburg, the second largest city in Germany. You can barely tell that this illuminated metropolis traces its history to the year 831. And while there are plenty of modern buildings to see, like the highly anticipated Elbphilharmonie along the water, it’s Hamburg’s older culture that can be most exciting. Try a visit to the Fish Auction Hall and Market, an open-air market that’s been hawking local wares since 1703. Your visit promises authentic local culture, because it’s not just a market. It’s a neighbourhood scene, a great place to absorb local colour. And that means you might be lucky enough to catch the occasional rock band playing there in the morning, alongside locals selecting their evening meals from the catches of the day. Model enthusiasts shouldn’t miss the spectacular Miniatur Wunderland, a massive model exhibit that leaves visitors speechless with its detail and realism. Of course, there’s historic architecture all around and a lovely botanical garden at Park Planten un Blomen. With something for everyone, there’s no question you’ll have a guten tag in Hamburg!

Hellesylt
Looking for natural wonders that are truly wondrous? Look no further than the Geiranger Fjord. Emerge from a fairy tale pine forest and gaze at the fjord and surrounding mountains. You’ll find much more to amaze here, from a central waterfall to the winding roads and streams of the Moldskreddalen Valley.

Geiranger
A quaint village nestled in a valley in western Norway, Geiranger grants a respite to remember. Visitors come from all over to explore the fjord and its gorgeous views of nearby waterfalls, mountainscapes and charming farms.

Leknes
This island city is Norway’s most populous municipality. The harbour town is a shopping mecca in the Lofoten islands, boasting a range of stores. The rocky surrounding cliffs and pristine waters offers picturesque views.

Tromso
Tromsø is the largest city above the Arctic Circle and is a jump-off point for Arctic explorations. Visit the museum for insights into Lapp culture, and see the city’s strikingly modern Arctic Cathedral.

Honningsvaag
Honningsvag is Norway’s third largest harbour and the last port of call before heading eastward to the Arctic Ocean. This is one of the best towns in northern Norway to experience the beauty of continuous daylight. Rebuilt in the 50’s after being destroyed during World War II, Honningsvag has colourful, modern buildings dotting its landscape. Situated in the Island of Mageroya – with a population of 2,600 – Honningsvag has a cosmopolitan flair and yet retains the charm of a small enclave. Fishing is the main industry of this Arctic Circle town and the port is always brimming with activity.

Alesund
One of Norway’s most beautiful towns, renowned for its Jugend-style architecture and art nouveau style. Cruise visitors will immediately notice Alesund’s unique layout, as it is built on islands extending to the sea, and offers scenic views of fjords and the Sunnmore Alps. Alesund is the fishing capital of Norway.

Bergen
View this lovely and charming Norwegian city from your cruise ship and you’ll see how the city is nestled between seven mountains, seven fjords and the North Sea. The Norwegian King resided here, and many historical events took place in this busy port. These events come alive when you amble down the old streets of Bryggen, past picturesque, wooden buildings and the Romanesque-style St. Mary’s church.
