Jewel of the Seas - July 5, 2024 - July 18, 2024 (13 Night Arctic Circle)


Recommended Posts

Getting this roll call started. 13 nights to the top of the world and through world heritage fjords which won't be sailable by Royal soon.


Going to add links and such as I think about it below this line. This is certainly not a comprehensive list. Rather it's things I've bookmarked and such.

For a few attractions which are possible to visit on this cruise have free audio tours available in the app "VOICE OF NORWAY" available in the iOS and Android app stores.

Hop-on/Hop-off buses through CitySightseeing (city-sightseeing.com) are only available at very limited ports of call in this itinerary. There is at least one location they're servicing which is asking visitors to the site to check back at a later date.

This year I haven't had any luck yet as my 2 other cruises were canceled and changed, so I am excited about this cruise and hope that this trip will take place as planned. 🤞



Thanks you for the information and links. I can also add the following website which offers shore excursions for several ports on this cruise:


I find the excursion "Ålesund from Fjords to Trolls" the most interesting. As you probably know, the days in Ålesund and Flåm were swapped on this voyage, which means considerably more time in Ålesund. The other cruises to Norway this year do not plan as much time in Ålesund. All in all this means that this cruise is the only one this year and for the time being the last one to Norway where you get a chance to see the Trollveggen and Trollstigen.  🤩
That's why this shore excursion is my recommendation. 👍
