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

    The fjords always make me think of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Well done, Slartibartfast.

    I have never been to the fjords, I have only cruised the Mediterranean and really enjoyed it so this would be an ideal chance to sample all things Scandinavian.

    I've only ever been on one cruise and that was around the Indian ocean. This cruise in Norway sounds so much more to my liking as I love all things scandanavian and it would be a tremendous treat to take my disabled sister away for a relaxing, scenic break.

    We love cruising but have never been to the Fjords in the summer/autumn weather, so that would be fabulous to see those lovely views. The only time we have been to Norway was on a Hurtegrutten boat one January, which we loved but is very different as it's cold with lots of snow.

    i have never been on a cruise, but my husband says he would like to go . i don't like the motion of boats , so anyone recommend a short one that would not pass through choppy sea.

    The winner is in for a treat, Columbus is a great ship, the food is excellent, I really enjoyed the entertainment, the staterooms are well fitted out and some of the largest available. This trip is on my bucket list, hope I win

    I would love to take a cruise and the Norwegian Fjords look spectacular. The greatest concern I have is that I am in a wheelchair most of the time and worry about how difficult it would be to move around on the ship, particularly if the sea is rough. Also, when visiting different ports, I worry about how difficult it would be to get about in different countries. I am only just 50, although my husband is mid 50's - not sure if we would be better going with a standard travel agent or whether an agent who specialises in travel for the disabled would be better.

    Bergan is wonderful. If visiting, do go to the outdoor restaurant at the fish market right on the waterfront.
    The seafood there is out of this world.

    I visited Bergen many years ago in my early twenties, it was raining. I didn't do a fjord boat trip which I have regretted all these years. I can't turn back time, but if the sun shines, it wouldn't be too late to experience the beauty of the spectacular fjords on this stunning ship.

    I’ve never been on a cruise. I’d love to treat my sister too!

    Wow what a fabulous prize. I have always dreamed of visiting the Norwegian fjords and I also wanted to go on a cruise 'when I was older'. Somehow I am now 61 and have not realised either of these dreams. However, this trip would combine both. To top it all, it leaves from London, where I happen to live! Fingers crossed...

    Autumn Fjordland cruise. What a perfect way to see a place I've never been to before. Cruising and a glimpse of the Northern Lights would one to knock off the bucket list.
