Anthem Of The Seas

Itinerary

Anthem of the Seas® isn’t the same old song. It’s a thrill ride that packs in cutting edge experiences- like North Star®, which gives you 360-degree views from 300 feet above sea level. And flavour firsts, like creative fare at Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine. Plus, showstoppers like We Will Rock You. Defy gravity with a free-falling experience on Ripcord® by iFLY®. Practice your surf skills on the FlowRider® surf simulator. And witness a spellbinding show in Two70®.

Named after its founding king, is the lively capital of Southern Norway. Stroll through the old town of Posebyen, known for its neat grid design with wooden white and pastel-coloured houses. Explore the area around the quayside and fish market, and relax in an outdoor cafe. Take a boat trip to visit the quaint fishing villages nearby. Cruise to Kristiansand and take your little ones to the large Dyrepark, which includes a zoo, a fantasy village, and a water park. Visit the photogenic Christiansholm Fortress, on the seaside promenade in the city centre. Built between 1662 and 1672 by Fredrik III to keep watch over the strategic Skagerrak Straits, which were often assailed by pirates.

A small but lively city with a unique modern feel. A rebuilding effort following a major fire in 1904 gave the city its distinctive Art Nouveau - or “Jugendstil” - architectural style, defined its ornate details, asymmetrical facades and curving forms meant to resemble plants, animals and flowers. From the city park, walk up the 418 steps to the city’s peak, Aksla - you’ll be rewarded with a gorgeous panoramic view on the city, the islands and the rugged Sunnmorsalpane mountain range. Alesund is the home base for Norway’s largest cod fishing fleet, so you won’t have to go far to try some of the delicious and fresh seafood dishes during your Norway cruise.

Arriving in Flåm feels like stepping into a fairy tale. Home to only 350 inhabitants, the village is situated at the inner end of the Aurlandsfjorden, the world’s deepest fjord reaching a staggering 1,308 meters. From the harbour, take a brief stroll to the Flam Railway and take the 20-kilometer ride through the Myrdal Mountains and along the fjord. Cruise to Norway and head to Otternes Farm Village, made up of 27 different buildings that date back to the 17th century. Then, let the waterfall at Stalheimsfossen take your breath away, or drive to Stegastein viewpoint to take in the beauty of the fjord.

Perched on Norway’s dramatic western coast, Stavanger is a city full of historic architecture, quaint cafes and ocean views. Check out Gamle Stavanger, the picturesque old town, where you’ll find well-preserved wooden buildings dating back to the 18th century painted in unique pastel hues. Learn more about the Vikings at the Museum of Archaeology, or visit 12th-century Stavanger Cathedral - thanks to a series of rebuilding efforts over the years, it features architectural elements from Romanesque to ornate Baroque. Then, take the short trip to Prekestol, the “Preacher’s Pulpit,” a rocky natural viewing point overlooking Lyse Fjord.

Participate in one of the wide arrays of activities organized during your last cruise day and let yourself be pampered by the attentive staff on board. You will be instructed to leave your luggage outside your stateroom by midnight, as bags will be transported ashore by the ship’s personnel early next morning.

Ship docks in Southampton at 0600hrs. Enjoy your last breakfast on board as your cruise holiday comes to an end. Once ashore, a coach will be in attendance for your transfer to the airport for your return flight to Malta
