Imagine sitting on your cruise ship balcony long into the evening as the sun hangs in the sky and you glide past a magnificent coastline. Or utilize the extra time ashore to enjoy museums and local culture. The lengthy summer days are a highlight of any Northern Europe cruise. Let yourself be amazed by Norway’s stunning fjords, visit The Netherlands’ fabled tulip fields and windmills, or stroll among the legendary, colorful domes of St. Petersburg. Shop for traditional handmade goods, unique to each of the countries you visit. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
