Here's a chance to set sail on one of the most popular cruise itineraries for £499 per person with P&O Cruises. This new fare for a 7-night full-board Norwegian fjords voyage is the best price on the market.
A fjords cruise is a "real antidote to stress", says cruise expert Douglas Ward, who praises Norway's "picture-perfect fishing villages, dramatic rock formations and waterfalls". No wonder then that Cruise International calls the region "a favourite" among cruisers. This deal is for travel from Southampton on 24 May and covers the spring bank holiday.
Azura sails to Bergen, a city enveloped by "majestic mountains" and "spectacular fjords", according to Frommer's, and Åndalsnes, which is at the end of one of Norway's longest fjords. The ship then docks in Olden, where excursions to glaciers and lakes are available for a supplement. On the final leg of the journey, the ship stops in Stavanger with its traditional 18th- and 19th-century wooden houses, before returning to Southampton.
Onboard facilities include an outdoor movie screen (SeaScreen), The Playhouse theatre with West End-style shows, and a variety of restaraunts, bars and lounges including Sindhu Indian restaurant run by the Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar (extra charges apply).
The price includes all meals and snacks** and accommodation in an Inside Cabin. Upgrade to an Outside Cabin for £100 more per person and to a Balcony Cabin for £200 more. P&O Cruises is offering a range of other fjords cruises for £499 per person***. Click here for more information.
This cruise is also available as a Vantage Fare for £719 per person. This includes the option to choose your cabin location and number, and either £130-per-cabin onboard credit, free parking in Southampton, or return coach transfer to Southampton****.
