Spend your first two full days at sea, enjoying the ship's many amenities, as Marco Polo cruises to Norway.
Days Two and Three
The lovely town of Kristiansund stands on a cluster of four islands at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. It's also the starting point of the Atlantic Ocean Road, a five-mile ribbon of roads and bridges that links the islets and skerries that skirt this part of the Atlantic coast.
Make the most of another relaxed day at sea as Marco Polo sails even further north.
Marco Polo's next port of call is remote Alta. Sky-gaze at your leisure (the Northern Lights are often at their most astounding here), and explore the Arctic region of Finnmark - home to the indigenous Sami people, the prehistoric rock carvings at Hjemmeluft and the famous Ice Hotel - on one of our exciting optional excursions.
Today Marco Polo calls at the pretty, remote village of Honningsvaag. Join an optional excursion to the famous visitor centre at Nordkapp, almost at Europe's northernmost point. You'll return to the ship, passing Knivskjellodden, Europe's true north tip, before the ship continues south.
The largest settlement beyond the Arctic Circle, Tromso, with its magnificent cathedral rising grandly from its bustling centre, is today's port of call. Step ashore to explore its daily market and fascinating Polarmuseum, which chronicles the lives and exploits of the likes of Amundsen and Nansen.
Relax and enjoy another day at sea.
This morning we'll arrive in the beautiful city of Trondheim. Set between a loop in the River Nid and the stunning Trondheimsfjord, Trondheim was once the capital of Viking Norway. See its imposing 11th-century Nidaros cathedral, the restored Archbishop's Palace, and the impressive Stiftsgarden, which is now a royal residence.
Today, Marco Polo cruises into beautiful Romsdalsfjord on her way to Andalsnes. Here, you'll have the chance to join an optional excursion through some of Norway's most spectacular mountain scenery, and perhaps the opportunity to visit the famous wooden Rodven stave church in its dreamy setting beside the fjord.
Explore Bergen's colourful fish market, narrow cobbled streets, medieval houses and vibrant harbour area, today. Don't miss the chance to stroll through the UNESCO-listed Bryggen area, and perhaps view the city from the summit of 'Mount' Floyen, reached by funicular railway.
Relax on board as Marco Polo cruises homeward.
Arrive back at London Tilbury after a fascinating Arctic cruise.
