Discover the wild beauty of the fjords and the fascinating cultural wealth of Northern Europe with a luxury Seabourn cruise. Europe cruises to the northern nations often take place in the spring, when the return of warmer weather and longer hours of daylight make for ideal voyages to see the striking scenery and beautiful capital cities. Available on selected sailings:
Visitors to Le Havre in Normandy have a great choice of ways to experience this part of northern France with Seabourn – whether you’d like to sample the local apple brandy, see the village that inspired Monet or even visit the sites of the D-Day beach landings. History buffs on Europe cruises touring the areas might otherwise opt for a trip to Rouen, a city steeped in Anglo-Norman history and home to some remarkable buildings – from quaint timber-framed houses reminiscent of Tudor England to the gothic spires of Rouen Cathedral.
Those taking a cruise in Northern Europe shouldn’t miss the chance to visit London, the iconic home of countless historic landmarks and tourist attractions. A shore excursion with Seabourn includes the chance to tour all the best sights of London – including Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, as well as Westminster Abbey and St James’s Park. Alternatively see the city from a riverboat, sailing up the Thames and stopping off for a bird’s eye view of the capital from the London Eye.
Visiting Amsterdam gives you the chance to see the famous waterways and the creative heritage of the city, including the option to customise a personal tour of the area. Visitors can see the Hermitage and Van Gogh museums, or to take a trip out of town to a workshop that has produced distinctive blue and white Dutch porcelain since the 17th century.
Colourful Copenhagen in Denmark is made up of the serious and the fantastical in equal measures. Visitors can take a wonderful tour that encompasses both – from the churches, museums and mixed old and new architecture of the harbour district, complete with a great selection of waterfront cafes and bars, to the mesmerising wonderland of Tivoli Gardens.
Visitors to Helsinki will find a city with a hunger for activity – experience the Finnish capital by walking, hiking, kayaking or even speedboat. Or if you’re stopping off in Stockholm, take a look at the Vasa Museum and city hall by Lake Malaren with a guided tour or audio tour; alternatively, delve into Stockholm’s gruesome medieval past with a dramatised walk down cobbled streets to hear tales of witches, ghosts and murderers.
If you’ve always wanted to see the Norwegian fjords, book your cruise with Seabourn for some fantastic itineraries around these dramatic, picturesque inlets. Visitors can choose to experience the sweeping beauty of Hjeltefjord, Sognefjord and Nordfjord in the south of the country, followed by the more rugged, rocky Trollfjord in the far north. Equally stunning are the mountainous ports of Tromso and Svolvaer close by, home to museums where visitors can learn about the harsh realities faced by the Arctic explorers and the ancient Vikings respectively.
Seabourn specialises in smaller ships so that every passenger can be sure of personal service and a room with a view – what better way to see the historic capitals and breathtaking vistas of Scandinavia?
