August Cruises

Posted on Sunday, January 15, 2012 |
August really heats up in Europe, and that means that destinations that may be less than pleasant in winter are accessible- like the fjords of Norway, a truly stunning area.

P&O's Oceana will depart on the 3rd of August from Southampton for a week-long cruise amongst the rugged glacier-carved fjords and picturesque towns of Norway. The first port of call is Stavanger, where you can admire not only the scenery but the town's adorable Old Quarter with 200-year old white wooden houses. Next is Olden, nestled at the end of a stunning fjord, then on to Geiranger and Bergen where you can see the stunning Bridal Veil and Seven Sisters waterfalls and take the furnicular railway to the top of Mount Fløyen for some spectacular views.

Oceana is a mid-sized ship with a stunning atrium, a wide variety of bars and entertainment venues, both fixed and freedom dining, pools, sports, a golf simulator, casino and more. Her slightly smaller size means she has easy access to smaller ports in the fjords and an intimate atmosphere aboard.
