NORWEGIAN COASTAL VOYAGE
May 15 – 31, 2017
Anneka and I introduced North America to Norway’s Mail Boat and the Norwegian Coastal Voyage what seems like a lifetime ago and it was one of our first cruises outside of North America. A great deal has changed since that time. Norway’s two ferry systems have merged and now carry more passengers than cargo with the ferry’s replaced by bridges.
Despite these changes there are things that have remained the same. We still believe the Mail Boat is the best way to experience Norway and you still have to do the entire round trip to experience all the 34 ports of call. As this is still a working ship, the vessels visit many ports of call at night. By doing the full, round trip these are then the ports of call you discover during the day on the return journey.
There is another thing that hasn’t changed, this is still one of our best selling Journeys and continues to sell out year after year!
