Win a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords with Cruise & Maritime Voyages

May 2019 Prize Draw

Olden, NorwayThis month our prize is a fabulous 8-night Autumn Fjordland cruise for two people onboard Columbus, leaving from London Tilbury on 26 September 2020. 

Travelling via Rotterdam up to the most stunning fjords, you’ll enjoy full board (three delicious meals a day) on the ship and fabulous evening entertainment too, staying in a Superior Twin Ocean View cabin.

Your Cruise & Maritime Voyage takes you to one of The Netherlands most interesting cities, and then on up to Sognefjord and Flam, a sweet little village beside clear, deep water which has a remarkable railway, one of the steepest in the world and a serious feat of engineering which provides spectacular views. Nordfjord is next and a visit to the town of Olden, surrounded by farmland.  Breathe in deeply to thoroughly enjoy the clear, pollution-free air.  Immense Jostedalsbreen Glacier and its offshoot Briksdal Glacier are magnificent natural wonders, creating waterfalls and lakes in the jagged mountains and fertile valleys.   

Geiranger, NorwayGeiranger and its eponymous fjord are total contrasts – an attractive village, set in dramatic scenery and the fjord with still, mirror-like waters, plumbing fathoms deep.  

Bergen, with its historic, colourful Bryggen wharf, is your final port of call, where you can take a funicular ride to the summit of Mount Floien to enjoy panoramic views to the coast across the city. 

Columbus is a mid-size ship, dedicated to cruising in the traditional style, with Formal and Informal evenings, speciality restaurants and wonderful deck parties, as well as the show lounge and various watering holes. Read more

    I would love to go back to Norway. I've visited Bergen, but think a cruise would be the best way to enjoy the amazing scenery

    Cruising has never really appealed to me or my husband but so many friends have said the same thing and then tried one and never looked back. If I was going to try one it would definitely be the Norwegian Fjords so here's hoping. 60 this year and always keen to try something new!

    I'd love to go on a cruise. Other half isn't keen but said that if I ever won one he'd come along! I'm hoping he'd love it then we could do some more. Also, Norway is high on my list of places I want to see and experience and cruising is the perfect way to do it.

    Never been to Norway but it is on my bucket list. Would be lovely to win this as we were unable to go on our first ever cruise because the ash from the Icelandic volcano stopped our plane from flying. So I’m still waiting for a cruise to happen x

    Bergen or Bryggen in Norwegian looks superb. I just love all those pastel coloured houses along the front that remind me of Van Gogh painting. I never realised that Bergen is the gateway to the Fjords of Norway, and is a UNESCO World Heritage City. What a way to remember what I did in 2020 if I won the Cruise !

    Wow. I never knew about the mountain railway. Sounds like an amazing trip, and not just "sitting looking out the windows", either.

    We talked about doing this before we were married. 42 years later, kids, grandchildren, and we've still not done it! It would be an absolute dream trip!
