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 only sort of cruise that we have done is with Hurtigruten to see the Northern Lights, which was stupendous. Would love to go a "real" cruise if only I could get my husband to go!!

    We have sailed with cruise & maritime on both the Columbus and the Magellan. On both ships we were looked after and treated so well. The staff, entertainment and food were all exceptional. This cruise line have amazing medium sized very personal ships which adds to your experience. The itineraries from Tilbury are a brilliant choice.

    We have recently retired from far too many years of teaching and would love to take up the opportunity of a cruise round the The Norwegian Fjords. We have never been or indeed have never been on a cruise! This looks like an amazing opportunity to experience both and have a discovery adventure!

    The disabled person I care for would love to visit Rotterdam and revisit Norway - without flying - so this would be an ideal break for us.

    My best friend is currently enjoying a Norwegian Fjord cruise and is posting pictures which are making me very envious!! Would love to do this at some stage, I've never been North of Scotland so it would be a complete adventure!

    Both my sister and my son have taken cruises to Norway with their families and raved about it. I would love to go myself and am trying to decide whether to travel on my own ( having recently lost my husband ) or to try to arrange a mutually convenient date with friends, Although we are all retired we all seem to be so busy with numerous commitments! I have visited Denmark three times but Norway is a completely different kettle of fish!

    We went to the fjords on Britannia in June last year - midsummer, I thought, should be decent weather. Unfortunately it was more like March - cold and wet, so we’d love to try again to different ports, on a smaller ship and at a different time of year.
    Britannia is a lovely ship (I’d recommend the floristry and cookery courses) but too big for us.

    I remember learning about Sognefjord when I was taking my Geography 'O' Level back in the 70's. I have cruised the Douro River and across to Hamburg and Amsterdam. Would love to cruise up to Norway and maybe see the Northern Lights x

    I've never been on a cruise and I've never been to Norway. This would tick off two items on my wish list. Fingers crossed.

    I have, many years ago visited Norway in the winter and it was fabulous skiing in the mountains! Since then I have always wanted to visit the fjords. Definitely on my bucket list.

    I have always wanted to see this part of the world but always end up going to more sunny climates. On my bucket list is to see the northern lights, which I know is not on this cruise but would love it anyway. To breathe clean fresh air everyday and see the stars in the sky every night must be wonderful.
