Location Haugesund
In
Out

Haugesund, homeland of the Viking kings and birthplace of Norway, is a place where you can inhale the Viking spirit. Surrounded by beautiful coastline, spectacular waterfalls and majestic fjords it’s no wonder the kings called this extraordinary setting home. Populated for thousands of years, you can walk in the footsteps of the great kings at the Nordvegen History Centre and travel back over 3,500 years. St Olav’s Church, dating from 1250 AD, is a monument to the former days of glory, and next to the church stands one of Norway’s tallest pillars, Virgin Mary’s Sewing Needle. In nearby Rehaugene you can explore the ‘Pyramids of the North’ – six intriguing Bronze Age, earthen burial mounds. And if you are feeling like a spot of retail therapy, you’re in luck – not only is Haugesund filled with charming markets it’s also home to Norway’s longest pedestrian street.

Location Skjolden
In
Out

Surrounded by steep hills with spectacular falls, Skjolden is located at the head of the longest navigable fjord in the world – Sognefjord. As well as being situated in a breathtaking location, the town itself is host to a number of activities and attractions. Once home to the Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951), he wrote some of his most important works here.

Location Alesund
In
Out

Because it was completely rebuilt after being destroyed by fire in 1904, Alesund looks quite different to other Norwegian towns along the country’s west coast now better known as simply ‘Fjordland’.

Stretching across three islands at the mouth of the magnificent Geirangerfjord, Alesunds architecture is now an eclectic mixture of mock-Gothic and neo-classical with more than a dash of Art Nouveau. Turrets and spires dot the skyline and you can trace the towns trend setting style development at the Art Nouveau Centre, one of several fascinating museums in the town. The pick is the open-air Sunnmre while the Atlantic Sea-Park is also worth a visit as one of the largest aquariums in northern Europe.

Location Kristiansund
In
Out

Kristiansund is a municipality on the western coast of Norway in the Nordmøre district of Møre og Romsdal county. The administrative center of the municipality is the town of Kristiansund, which is the major town for the whole Nordmøre region

Date 26/05/2022
Location Andalsnes
In
Out

People have been cruising to Andalsnes for more than 120 years because of its stunning location. For, an Alpine town as well as a cruise port, Andalsnes nestles where the towering Romsdal Alps meet the northern end of the sparkling Romsdalfjord.

A small, friendly town with shops and markets, Andalsnes is also close to the famous Trollstigen road. This leads through pretty villages, past scenic fjords and majestic mountain peaks and across the stone bridge over the cascading Stigfossen waterfall to the Trollvegen (Troll Wall) which – at nearly 6,000 feet – is the highest vertical drop in northern Europe.

Another way to see the Troll Wall and even more dramatic Alpine scenery besides is to take the Rauma Railway steam train which leaves from a station right by the cruise port.

Please note snow based shore excursions are not available on autumn cruises.

Date 27/05/2022
Location Nordfjordeid
In
Out

Nestled peacefully at the end of one of Norway’s most beautiful waterways, Nordfjordeid is a picturesque, hidden gem.

Wander the old centre of town to find white-painted buildings brimming with cafés, restaurants, bakeries and shops, or discover unique architecture at the modern opera house or the 19th century Eid Church – home to spectacular carvings and intricate paintings. At the Sagastad Viking heritage centre you can interact with fascinating exhibits and step aboard the Myklebust, an authentic 100-foot-long replica ship based on the remains of one of the largest Viking ships ever unearthed. Visiting in the summer? Why not relax in the lush Saga Park which has its own beach by the fjord?

Despite Nordfjordeid’s sleepy charm, this small village is big on adventure. Connect with the marine environment on a kayaking tour, go fishing for huge monkfish, wolf fish and mackerel, or ride a Fjord horse – one of the world’s oldest pure breeds. The surrounding emerald hillsides transform into towering mountains, and hikes in the immediate area reveal spellbinding views. Who knows, if you head up here you might even encounter the mythical Huldra – a seductive, sometimes dangerous forest creature who takes the form of a beautiful woman with a cow’s tail. If she doesn’t appear to mesmerise you, the spectacular vistas certainly will.

Location Stavanger
In
Out

A visit to Stavanger is like a step back in time, with its rich landscape, enchanting fjords and wonderful mixture of old against new. Littered with 19-century buildings, its beautiful old quarter is the perfect place to transport yourself back in time to the historic days of prosperity. Situated in the heart of the city is Stavanger’s 12th century cathedral, the only church to have retained all its original features since its construction in the Middle Ages. Discover Pulpit Rock, hanging 1,800 feet above the Lysefjord below – when you step out to admire the views, you’ll feel on top of the world.

Kristiansand in Norway has two boasts. First, it’s at the head of one of the loveliest of fjords. Second, and more prosaically, it’s a leading centre for dried-cod production

Arcadia combines the contemporary with the classic and this exclusively for adults ship is designed with absolute relaxation in mind. Arcadia took to the waves in 2005, instantly recognisable thanks to exterior glass-fronted elevators that have become her signature feature, wowing passengers with unique panoramic ocean views.

The relaxed and friendly ship underwent a recent refurbishment in 2017, reinvigorated throughout with more than a hint of elegance.

Relaxation and Pampering

Arcadia’s recreational features have been tailored towards relaxation and pampering. The Oasis Spa features a hydropool and thermal suite, along with a varied list of cutting-edge treatments, and is a haven of relaxation far removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

» Exclusively for adults

» Mid-sized ship

» Over six places to dine

» Over nine places to socialise

» Dazzling entertainment

» Three-tier theatre

» Boutique cinema

» Luxurious salon & spa

» Three pools

» Yoga, Pilates & dance classes

Located on the Lido deck, the Neptune pool and its hot tubs are enveloped by a retractable Skydome, enclosing the area in periods of inclement weather so you’re sea days can continue regardless. Swimming and sunbathing is best followed by a delicious lunch and glass of something fizzy with friends old and new at the Neptune Grill.

Exercise away your indulgences in the state-of-the-art gym, or perfect your swing at the golf nets. Alternatively, Arcadia’s sports courts play host to tennis, volleyball, basketball and football, all served up with a healthy dose of competitive spirit.  If shopping is your cardio, head to Piccadilly on the promenade deck, where tax and duty-free prices make the designer goods on offer even more tempting.

Evening Entertainment

Arcadia comes alive in the evenings, with something happening in every corner of the ship and 7 bars in which to unwind. The Palladium is Arcadia’s impressive three-tier theatre and home to elaborate West End-style shows and musicals.

The Globe has now been reimagined as a late night dancing venue, a black and gold colour scheme providing the opulent backdrop to your evening on the dance floor, with live music and cabaret providing the soundtrack.

Monte Carlo Casino has all the glamour you’d expect, with two roulette wheels and three blackjack tables taking pride of place amongst the richly hued furnishings and slot machines.

The Rising Sun will be a favourite haunt for passengers who just love their British home comforts. This wood-panelled British pub has live sport, a lively jukebox, varied beers and everything else you’d expect from a traditional pub atmosphere. With champagne and cocktails provided in the Intermezzo Bar, stunning panoramic ocean views in the every-popular Crow’s Nest and a resident pianist providing the backdrop to conversation in the Piano Bar, there really is something for all tastes on board Arcadia.

Dining

Arcadia takes dining seriously and boasts 6 impeccable dining venues across the ship. The Meridian Restaurant is the main dining room on board, spanning two decks and interlinked by a magnificent staircase which forms the focal point of the whole room. Guests can choose to dine at the same time and table each night with Club Dining, or opt for more flexibility with Freedom Dining. Both dining options can be enjoyed in the same opulent surroundings of the Meridian Restaurant, with the lower tier reserved for Club Dining and the upper tier for Freedom Dining.

Arcadia’s Select Dining venues include the spice sensation of Sindhu showcasing Indian cuisine in spectacular style and Ocean Grill where Marco Pierre White delivers a simple but exquisite menu in the Ocean Grill.

Holidays are a time to relax and sometimes we just want to enjoy something more informal after a long day exploring new places. The Belvedere Restaurant serves up a choice of mouth-watering fare throughout the day, before being transformed in the evening to take on the theme and culinary creations reminiscent of the day’s port of call.

The dress code may be relaxed in this particular restaurant but the service and standards are not, and you’re promised an excellent evening with some fantastic food.

Dress Code

Smart Casual is the key dress code on board Arcadia; however there are several nights when you will be invited to dress in your finest gown or smartest black tie for Formal Night. These occasions are a much loved element of the cruise experience and an opportunity to dazzle. The Belvedere Restaurant offers a casual dress code for an informal option.
