Ports

  • Oslo

    Norway is a land steeped in myth, where irascible gods armed with frost and lightning once inspired Viking clans to plunder foreign lands. These days, genteel customs imported from mainland Europe have softened the country’s hard edges, but traces of an unruly past still abound. The exceptional museums dotting the Bygdøy Peninsula hold some of the city’s foremost attractions, including a thousand-year-old longship that was preserved in mud and the 12th-century Gol Stave Church, an exemplar of Norway’s distinctive wood sanctuaries. No less fascinating is a visit to the 1892 Fram, a legendary ship revered for her vital role in early polar explorations. To witness the evolution of Oslo’s soul, contrast battle-hardened Akershus Fortress, a ruggedly elegant citadel wrapped in nearly impregnable ramparts, with the neoclassical Royal Palace, whose formal exterior encloses sumptuously appointed rooms. You might wish to view Edvard Munch’s iconic The Scream, which hangs in the outstanding Norwegian National Gallery amid priceless European and Scandinavian masterworks. In expansive Frogner Park, wander among Gustav Vigeland’s thought-provoking sculptures, and if you’ve worked up an appetite, choose among the many restaurants and cafés lining the charming waterfront district of Aker Brygge.

  • Kiel Canal

    Thrill to one of the world’s most unique cruising experiences, a transit of the storied Kiel Canal. The idea for a waterway connecting the Baltic and North Seas was conceived by Chancellor Otto von Bismarck during the Danish-German War of 1864, as the Germans were keen to avoid Danish hostility while sailing around the Jutland Peninsula. The ambitious project, however, didn’t come to fruition until 1895 under the auspices of Wilhelm II, albeit right on budget. These days, the canal’s purpose is primarily mercantile, and it is in fact the world’s busiest shipping route. As such, you can expect to pass cargo vessels from every imaginable corner of the world carrying a mesmerizing variety of goods. While transiting, look out over a famously flat landscape of well-tended fields, dense forests and quaint villages, and pass under a succession of steel overpasses, including the fascinating Rendsburg High Bridge, both a railway viaduct and a transporter bridge. When you emerge into the open sea, you’ll have the satisfaction of having undertaken a remarkable transit only available to smaller cruising vessels.

  • Schveningen

  • Bordeaux

    Bordeaux is incontestably one of the world’s most venerable wine capitals, and a visit to this oenophile’s paradise will not disappoint lovers of the nectar of the gods. This lovely city, however, also boasts myriad architectural treasures in its UNESCO World Heritage site historic center, including the sublime Palace de la Bourse, an 18th-century marvel that is spellbindingly echoed in the adjacent reflecting pool. As you stroll the promenade on the left bank of the Garonne River, you’ll pass majestic neoclassical buildings and splendidly manicured gardens that rival Paris itself. The astonishingly preserved 15th-century Grosse Cloche and Porte Cailhau city gates are a testament to the city’s medieval sumptuousness, but for proof that Bordeaux isn’t in thrall to the past, visit La Cité du Vin, a boldly futuristic structure devoted to the history of wine throughout the ages. Of course, for a first-hand look at wine production you must venture out to the surrounding countryside, where fabulous chateaux oversee flourishing vineyards responsible for some of the world’s premier vintages. A visit to any quaint wine village is sure to enchant, but Saint-Émilion and its unspoiled feudal ambiance might just become the highlight of your trip.
