If you’re looking to cruise Norway but can’t decide between the numerous ships and itineraries on the market, read on to discover which Norwegian cruise is best suited to you. 

There’s no better way to soak up the beauty of Norway’s fjords than by cruise ship. After all, a Norway cruise gives you easy access to spectacular scenery and hidden gems you wouldn't be able to see on land.

At Solos, we offer a wide selection of cruise itineraries that showcase Norway at its most beautiful, from week-long tours to 12-night adventures. Here's our handy guide to choosing the perfect Norwegian cruise for you...


Norwegian ships

Our selection of Norwegian cruises are operated by either Cruise & Maritime Voyages or Hurtigruten, offering you the choice between four magnificent cruise ships.

CMV Columbus

Purpose built for deep sea ocean cruising, Columbus is perfectly suited to the scenic cruise programme she operates. 775 passenger cabins are on offer, including 64 deluxe balcony cabins and junior suites. Recognising the needs of single travellers, 150 cabins have been allocated for solo travellers!

On board Columbus, days at sea are filled with a wide variety of activities, including traditional deck games, swimming in outside pools and beauty salon treatments. When the weather is fine, enjoy dinner with a view at the Alfresco Grill and watch Norway's panoramic scenery sail by.

CMV Magellan

Renowned for its intimate and friendly atmosphere, Magellan promises to provide a quintessentially British cruise experience to all its passengers.

A pub, a card room and library are just a few examples of the many ways in which the ship creates a 'home away from home' feel for its 1,250 guests.

Other highlights include the Waldorf and the Kensington restaurants, the more relaxed Raffles Bistro, and an impressive array of whirlpools and swimming pools out on the deck.

MS Nordlys

Hurtigruten’s ships have been a hallmark of the Norwegian coast since 1893.

Their expedition ships are far smaller than those operated by Cruise and Maritime Voyages, and are best suited to cruisers looking for a more adventurous, educational cruise.

Both the name and the interior design of this MS Nordlys were inspired by the Northern Lights. She also comes with her own on-board Expedition Team, which hosts interesting lectures, presentations and activities to help you learn about the nature and culture you encounter on your journey.

MS Roald Amundsen

Brand new for 2019, Hurtigruten's MS Roald Amundsen is a state of the art expedition ship with new, environmentally-friendly hybrid technology.

The two-level indoor/outdoor Observation Deck makes it perfect for soaking up the scenery of a Norwegian cruise, while the Amundsen Science Centre will be the heart of your on-board experience.

In true Norwegian style, MS Roald Amundsen also features three restaurants inspired by Nordic heritage.
