    Oslo, the Norwegian capital, welcomes Columbus today. Step ashore to find a lively, friendly city, waiting to be discovered. Head off by yourself, or join a shore excursion, perhaps to the Viking Ships museum, where a trio of ancient craft are lovingly preserved, or to the Kon-Tiki museum, where explorer Thor Heyerdahl’s fragile balsa-wood craft is displayed.

  • Arrive: 0900hrs

    Depart: 2000hrs

    Today we’ll stop in Kristiansand, Norway’s fifth city, on the country’s southern coast. One of Norway’s most popular tourist destinations, Kristiansand is renowned for its summer beach festival, its thriving creative arts scene, and as the home of Norway’s largest zoo.

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 1800hrs

    The prosperous former Norwegian fishing capital, Stavanger, greets Columbus, today. Here, sleek ultramodern buildings like the Stavanger Conert Hall and the Norwegian Petroleum Museum contrast sharply with the pretty white-painted, clapboard houses and cobbles of Stavanger old town. Step ashore to wander through harbour-side Torget before we enjoy a breathtaking passage though Lysefjord, where the towering Preikestolen rock formation soars above the waters.
