Holland, Denmark & Norway

Join Columbus as she cruises to a trio of welcoming Scandinavian ports on this excellent value early summer cruise.

After a call at Dutch maritime gem Rotterdam, sail to lively seaside Kristiansand, with its pretty Old Town and historic fortress, and then onto welcoming Norwegian capital Oslo, where you may choose to visit the fascinating Viking Ships Museum, or perhaps Thor Heyerdahl’s famed, fragile Kon-Tiki.
