Full Itinerary

Day One

Board Columbus in Tilbury today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.

Day Two

Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.

Day Three

Cruise past stunning scenery, this morning, as Columbus cruises to along the length of Hardangerfjord to the waterside village of Eidfjord.

Day Four

The remote village of Flam is set in one of Sognefjord's most remote corners. From here, you might enjoy an unforgettable excursion, boarding the world-famous Flamsbana Mountain Railway, for the beautiful journey to Myrdal, before joining a coach to travel through yet more breathtaking scenery.

Day Five

Columbus cruises into beautiful Romsdalsfjord and Andalsnes, today. From here, there's the opportunity to enjoy an excursion through some of Norway's most spectacular mountain scenery, and perhaps a chance to visit the famous wooden Rodven stave church in its dreamy setting beside the fjord.

Day Six

This morning Columbus docks in Bergen. This ancient Hanseatic city of cobbled streets and medieval houses was the birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.

Day Seven

A final day is spent at sea, no doubt reliving the memories your cruise holiday as Columbus heads for home.

Day Eight

Bid farewell to Columbus and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.

Iver Heath Couple
This was our first cruise and we enjoyed the experience very much. However, one aspect we did not expect was that there were children on board, and this was also evident with other passengers we spoke to . Although this was apparently obvious with those who booked direct with CMV, the Newmarket brochure distinctly suggested 'no children'. Although the children on board were not a problem and well behaved, them being there obviously changed the dynamic on the ship, specifically the entertainment and daily activities and also the availability of the facilities e.g. swimming pools and jacuzzis. If we cruised again we would ensure that it was for adults only for this reason. The holiday as a whole was excellent, great excursions, wonderful service on board, great entertainment and fabulous food.

My first cruise and I loved it. Service and food and drink quality great. Staff so friendly and helpful. Norway beautiful. Supposed to be a cruise to allow children but timing of children's entertainment not great.

Newport Couple
Excellent holiday, my one concern is regarding the coach from Tilbury to London Victoria return, I feel that considering the amount of times this service has been done it should be possible to let customers know what the estimated times the coaches arrive and depart from London so people using national express can get a better deal on coach travel

Colchester Essex Friends
As a first time cruiser we were pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect.
We had been rather pessimistic about the whole experience but were proved very wrong and would certainly do another one.
All ports of call were interesting.
