Itinerary

Meet the tour leader at the Malta International Airport at 05:30hrs, to check in for your Air Malta flight to Amsterdam. Upon your arrival at Amsterdam airport, you will be transferred to the cruise port for check-in formalities, to board Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas. Once on board, you are free to explore the ship. Enjoy the experience as your ship leaves the port at 17:00hrs.

Slip away to this adults-only indoor and outdoor retreat. The Solarium is your slice of paradise, with soothing whirlpools, warm sunshine and a refreshing water mist. Whether it’s a game of one-on-one or an all-out tournament to fuel your competitive fire, the Sports Court is just the spot for basketball and volleyball action.

Fresh air and icy beauty are the hallmarks of Olden, known as the Gateway to the Glaciers. Come here to explore the Jostedal Glacier - not only can you take in views of this natural wonder; you can also head to Jostedalsbreen National Park. Take the three-hour round-trip guided hike to Mount Hoven Viewpoint. More than 1,000 meters above sea level, it offers some of the best views over Nordfjord and the villages of Olden and Loen. The Loen Skylift will get you there in equally beautiful but less strenuous fashion.

Arriving in Flam 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 harbor, take a brief stroll to the Flam Railway and take the 20-kilometer ride through the Myrdal Mountains and along the fjord. Visit the elevated Otternes Farm Village, located just five kilometers to the north, where you’ll find a cluster of 27 houses from the 17th century. Get a glimpse of farm life through the ages and admire the serene landscape and its rolling hills.

Welcome to the Jewel in the Crown of Norway’s fjords. Geiranger Fjord was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005. The Geiranger Skywalk, at the top of Mount Dalsnibba, offers unobstructed views of the fjord and the Blabreen glacier, as well as the surrounding mountains. The walk up stone steps cut into the mountainside is an adventure in itself. Eagle Road, named after the eagles traditional to the area, features 11 hairpin turns. The highest point at Korsmyra is 620 meters above sea level. Take a bus tour to the top and enjoy panoramic views over Geiranger, the Geirangerfjord and the Seven Sisters Falls.

Alesund is 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. From the city park, walk up the 418 steps to the city’s peak, Aksla - you’ll be rewarded with a gorgeous panoramic view of the city, the islands and the rugged Sunnmorsalpane mountain range. Head to Atlanterhavsparken, a 4 million litre aquarium just three kilometers from the town center. The place is teeming North Atlantic undersea life. Kids can feed the fish at the touch pool, and there are also penguin and seal exhibits. Admire the coastal scenery from the walking trails that start here.

From coast to fjords, Haugesund boasts beautiful landscapes and rich history. Explore the homeland of the Viking Kings and learn about the fascinating Nordic culture by visiting the Nordvegen History Center and the Karmsund Folkemuseum. Connect with the natural beauty of Norway at the white sands and clear waters of the Karmoy Beaches or take a jaunt along the Djupadalen hiking trail and witness local wildlife, such as minks, hares, and a variety of birds. Ready for a taste of local cuisine and shopping? Take a stroll on Haraldsgata Street and enjoy the many shops, restaurants, and cafes. We’re sure however you spend your time here, it will be memorable.

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. 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. The fortress features five-meter-thick walls - perfect for soldiers to hold up in a bunker.

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 Amsterdam 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.
