Cruising the Coast of Europe

The coast of Europe offers beautiful scenery, interesting ports and a rich variety of cultural and natural heritage. Explore this diverse coastline at a relaxed pace, waking up in your comfortable cabin every morning knowing that you are in for a new and interesting adventure.

UNESCO Sites and Port Wine

Starting in legendary Lisbon, you should explore the city before embarking MS Roald Amundsen. Then get a taste of the world-famous Port wine in Oporto. Both cities offer UNESCO sites, historical centers that are deeply charming and each creates a unique atmosphere.

Crossing the border, we find golden sandy beaches and gourmet delights at Vigo on Spain's Galician coast, while architectural delights abound at La Coruña.

Bilbao is the main city of the Basque Region with an amazing mixture of architecture - and home to the famous Guggenheim museum.

Then one of France's best-kept secrets is yours to discover: Come ashore on Belle-île, famed for its natural beauty and unique culture that has inspired painters and authors for centuries. Experience the thrill of approaching the fortified city of Saint Malo from the sea.

Honfleur is a remarkably beautiful port town on the banks of the Seine. Ostend in Belgium is a known beach getaway, but offers small town charm and sights as well. Antwerp, the "diamond capital" has several architectural and cultural gems to discover.

City Life

Amsterdam, a city of canals, cafés and culture has a wealth of museums and art galleries: it was once the home of Rembrandt and van Gogh.

Helgoland offers spectacular nature, great birdlife and a very fascinating history.

Hamburg brings us back to city life, offering everything from medieval history to live bands following in the footsteps of the Beatles.
