Cruise Dialysis

Spring in the Fjords onboard Vasco de Gama departing 15 May 2020, 9 nights from £944

With only 1220 passengers, the Vasco da Gama combines beautiful, contemporary décor with a more traditional cruise style.  There are 120 spacious superior and premium balcony cabins and 29 de-luxe balcony suites including an impressive Royal Penthouse Suite. A majority of twin bedded cabins convert to double bed cabins and a limited number also have inter-connecting doors, ideal for family groups.

The facilities on board Vasco da Gama are impressive with a choice of six restaurants, five lounge bars, a pool bar and four entertainment venues each with its own individual style. She offers a casino, library, card room and shopping galleria plus extensive deck areas, two swimming pools (one of which has a retractable roof), sports courts, spa amenities and a gym.

The Vasco da Gama has great entertainment on board, from show teams to pianists to disco. Why not start your evening with a pre-dinner drink and enjoy some of your favourite melodies? 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.

17/5/20 Alesund (Norway) 07:00 13:00
In 1904, a catastrophic conflagration raged in Ålesund and left nothing but ashes. Then the city was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style, incidentally with support from Germany, the then current architecture direction. Buildings with oriels and turrets and facades with romantic, medieval ornaments give Ålesund its very own ancient charm. It is not without reason that it is regarded as the prettiest city in Norway and extends on a series of islands stretching out into the open sea. 418 steps lead from the city park to the top of Askla Mountain, which offers magnificent views of Ålesund. In the lavishly designed building of the former Schwanenapotheke, the Art Nouveau Center delights with insights into the unique architectural heritage of the city.
18/5/20 Country by launch or tenderOlden (Norway) 08:00 17:00
The southernmost of the three short arms of the inner Nordfjord ends in Olden. The charming village is located between smart farms on gently rising, fertile slopes, which become steeper and steeper up into dense, overgrown mountain peaks. The beautiful Oldendalen valley runs from the town between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsgletscher. The Briksdal Glacier is one of the most accessible glacier tongues of the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping moving, furrowed arm of ice is visited on the excursions offered from Olden, next to magnificent waterfalls, glacier-fed rivers and beautiful mountain lakes.

22/5/20 Stavanger (Norway) 07:00 19:30
In modern times, Stavanger is considered the oil capital of Norway. It is a lively, modern city with the old town Gamle Stavanger. The picturesque old part of Stavanger has gently sloping cobblestone streets lined with small, white wooden houses built at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. The Anglo-Norman cathedral dates back to 1125, the official founding year of Stavanger. One of the most popular trips from Norway’s fourth largest city is the visit of an Iron Age farmstead at Ullanhaug. This reveals fascinating insights into the life of this area about 1,500 years ago.

You’re doing a great service to those in need of it and who are keen to travel at the same time.  Your variety of ocean and river cruises gives all those who may be interested a wide choice of styles and destinations, while at the same time being able to rely on professional care and service in dialysis needs.

    Mrs S Pearl
  • We had a lovely holiday and have lots of pictures to remind us of where we went – they are on my screensaver already and are a very enjoyable reminder.  As you know I love these holidays. I am really grateful that I could have a holiday while on dialysis – it is so lovely to get away from home for more than a night!
