Day 6

Alesund

Spread across three islands at the mouth of mighty Geirangerfjord, this bustling fishing port was largely destroyed by fire in 1904 and rebuilt in striking Art Nouveau style. With its spires, turrets and ornamental houses, it looks considerably different from other Norwegian towns.

Geiranger

Geiranger is a little town nestled at the eastern end of breathtaking Geirangerfjord where the sparkling waters and splendid mountain scenery are absolutely stunning. Snow-dusted peaks, cascading waterfalls, rich green valleys and awesome gorges stretch as far as the eye can see and reflect in the calm, mirror-like waters of incredible Geirangerfjord. Perhaps join an optional excursion to see magnificent waterfalls and the deepest lake in Europe, overlooked by the towering Mount Dallsnibba.

Meals included
  • Breakfast

Day 8

Bergen

Known as the 'gateway to the Norwegian fjords' and the 'city of seven hills', charming Bergen was the birthplace of the composer Edvard Grieg. Bursting with history, culture and picture-postcard charm, it sits amongst steep, mountainous slopes that create an amphitheatre effect around the harbour front. Why not join the optional city tour to admire the labyrinth of cobbled streets and beautiful Bryggen Wharf, a UNESCO World Heritage site with brightly painted Hanseatic merchants' houses and pretty harbourside cafés?

Notes

Your ship

MS Koningsdam

Pinnacle means “high point”—and the debut of Koningsdam is a high point in Holland America Line history. Then again, in many ways, Koningsdam has been 141 years in the making. As heir, carries forward all of the tradition, nautical heritage, and signature service and style for which Holland America Line is known—while raising the bar for 21st-century elegance.

Her name sets the tone. Its roots, like the ship itself, are a mix of something contemporary and something classic: “Koning,” means king in Dutch—and is a salute to King Willem-Alexander, the Netherland’s first king in more than 100 years. And “dam,” because, after all … this is a Holland America Line ship, and the "dam" naming convention dates back to 1883.

Life onboard

It’s always a thrill to anticipate a new ship joining Holland America Line’s magnificent fleet. But it’s especially exciting when that new arrival is the first of a new class of ship. For when the 2,650-guest ms Koningsdam set sail in April 2016, she was not only be the first to bear that name, she ushered in a new era of Pinnacle-class cruising.
