The resident musicians invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy conversation with new friends about another wonderful day ashore.

Please note that the Vasco da Gama cruises are sold primarily to the German market and therefore the majority of passengers onboard will be German.  The crew onboard the Vasco da Gama speak German and English and you will be provided with English menus and a printed daily programme in English informing you of the days events onboard the ship and port information.

DATE PORT ARRIVALS DEPARTURE
20/07/21 Bremerhaven (Germany) 1700
21/07/21 Relaxation at sea
22/07/21 Skjolden (Norway) 0700 1700
23/07/21 Olden (Norway) 1000 1700
The southernmost of the three short arms of the inner north fjord ends in Olden. The charming place lies between neat farms on gently rising, fertile slopes, which become steeper and steeper further up and merge into densely overgrown, rough mountain peaks. The beautiful Oldendalen valley runs from the village between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedals glacier. The Briksdal Glacier is one of the most accessible glacier tongues on the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping, furrowed arm made of ice is visited on the excursions offered from Olden, alongside magnificent waterfalls, glacier-fed rivers and beautiful mountain lakes.
24/07/21 Relaxation at sea
25/07/21 Land by launch or tenderLeknes, Lofoten (Norway) 0600 1300
Leknes is geographically located in the middle of the Lofoten archipelago on Vestvågøy, one of the seven main islands. While Leknes may not be the most attractive city, it is considered the gateway to one of Norway’s most awesome and magnificent landscapes. The excursions on offer explore the country’s jagged mountain peaks, protected bays and dramatic coastlines, scattered with picturesque fishing villages. The archipelago is home to large bird populations and has a rich and fascinating legacy of the Vikings.
26/07/21 Honningsvåg, North Cape (Norway) 1700
Despite the fact that Norwegian law states that a city must have 5,000 inhabitants to be able to call itself a city, the small municipality of Honningsvåg with its 2,500 souls was granted city rights in 1996. This made Honningsvåg one of the smallest cities in the country. It is located on the southeast side of the island of Magerøya in the Barents Sea. The city is known as the starting point for trips to the dramatic North Cape, where the monumental 307 meter high cliff plunges vertically into the Atlantic from a rocky high plateau. You are here at the northernmost point of Europe, and between the North Cape and the North Pole there is only the endless Arctic Sea.
27/07/21 Honningsvåg, North Cape (Norway) 0300

29/07/21 Land by launch or tenderGeiranger (Norway) 0900 1800
Around 1800, the small farming village of Geiranger was relatively isolated from the outside world, but has now become one of Norway’s most popular vacation spots. Behind the place at the end of the fascinating Geirangerfjord there is a magnificent and impressive mountain scenery. Steep mountain roads wind up to dizzying heights and reveal panoramic views that are literally breathtaking. Snow-capped mountain peaks, wildly falling waterfalls, lush green valleys and dramatic gorges stretch as far as the eye can see and are reflected in the smooth, calm surface of the incredible Geirangerfjord deep down in the valley.
