As you gaze out from the deck of the ship you’ll be stunned by the sheer scale and magnificence of Norway’s mighty fjords.
Experience the awesome scale and beauty of Fjordland as you cruise gently along the magnificent Norwegian fjords. From the rail of Columbus and the calm serenity of still blue waters, look up past green slopes and forests to towering mountain peaks punctuated with cascading waterfalls. Contrast all this with pretty Norwegian towns and villages and you have a voyage to remember.
