Reach Europe's northernmost point with this 16-night deal from luxury cruise line Cunard. At £1099 per person, this voyage is £600 cheaper than a few days ago. Plus, you get to sail in one of the world's most-reverred cruise ships, the Queen Mary 2.
Most cruise liners can only sail to Norway's North Cape in the sunnier months. This means less capacity and generally very high prices, making this deal a real gem. Plus, with the ship arriving at the North Cape on 16 June, you get the chance to experience the midnight sun, or round-the-clock daylight, a phenomenon that only takes from 12 June-1 July.
Queen Mary 2 departs from Southampton on 8 June and heads to Hamburg. The ship then sails to Bergen, which is described by Simon Calder in The Independent as "one of the world's great harbour cities, full of history, natural beauty and friendly people".
The next stop is Åndalsnes, before the ship continues its journey to the North Cape, stopping in Trondheim and Honningsvag. This area of northern Norway is described as "wild and beautiful" by Fodor's. From Honningsvag, passengers will have a chance to visit the North Cape plateau, where they can stand facing the sea on Europe's northenmost point.
The journey ends with stops in Tromsø, Ålesund, Stavanger and Hamburg, before the ship returns to Southampton. The price is based on an Inside Stateroom, with all meals and snacks included. Click here for more information.
Queen Mary 2 was the top-rated ship in the Large Resort Ship category in this year's Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships. The ship has a spa, the Royal Court Theatre and the Queens Room, which is the largest ballroom at sea. Highlights include afternoon tea with Cunard's traditional White Star Service, 24-hour complimentary room service and workshops and shows. Cunard was named Best Luxury Cruise Line at this year's British Travel Awards.
