About the cruise holiday: You'll spend two nights in London, with time to explore the city's must-see sights, before boarding Norwegian Jade. The 14-night cruise first takes you to Bergen, Norway's port town full of narrow lanes and brightly painted houses. Explore the harbour and fish market before setting sail for Ålesund. This eccentric art nouveau style town "could be the backdrop for a Nordic fairytale -- with a modern plot twist”, according to National Geographic.
The Scottish town of Lerwick is next where you can explore sites from the Stone Age, Iron Age and the Viking periods. It is then onto Iceland -- a country that sits on the edge of the Arctic Circle -- where "nature reigns supreme" (Rough Guides). Here you'll discover the glaciers, geysers, mountains and waterfalls that have inspired ancient Icelandic sagas.
The remaining days are spent sailing around Scotland -- from the hub of the highlands, Inverness to the magical castles of Edinburgh -- before disembarking in London.
