Madrid doesn't have the traditional charm of Andalusia or the beauty of Barcelona, instead, it is a hub of social life with a happening café culture and bustling nightlife. The city is constantly buzzing with activity and there are so many things to see and do that tourists will be spoiled for choice.
The world-class Prado Museum displays an endless array of masterpieces created during the Golden Age of Spain, and the 18th-century Royal Palace rivals the Château de Versailles in France.

There is no better way to see the highlights of the Baltic States and St. Petersburg, Russia, than on one of our Baltic & St. Petersburg cruises.
Rich in fascinating history, art and architectural treasures, the Baltic Sea is undoubtedly one of the most exciting cruising destinations in the world. Journey to St. Petersburg, which still sparkles as brightly as ever - after all, it was once the jewel in the Tsar’s crown. In this stunning city you can visit jewels of architecture such Peterhof Palace (known as the Russian Versailles), the famous Winter Palace, Catherine Palace, and St Isaac Cathedral. The setting of some of Russia’s most famous works of literature, St Petersburg was the pinnacle of Russian aristocracy and the heart of the country’s civic change. This historical legacy is clear to see as you uncover this amazing city on one of our cruises to St. Petersburg.
Contrast Russia’s glorious imperial city and attractions such as the Hermitage Museum (the most treasured of all Russian museums) to the sophisticated Scandinavian capitals of Northern Europe and atmospheric medieval cities of the Hanseatic League, and a Baltic cruise promises to be one you will always remember. Enjoy the highlights of Copenhagen, which not only oozes Nordic chic but also is regularly voted as one of the happiest cities in the world and Tallinn, Estonia where the medieval and modern are fused with an energetic spirit.
Our ship, Ambience, is the perfect vessel for getting into some of the Baltic cities’ smaller cruise ports, providing a more leisurely and friendly cruising experience. And you can make your cruise even better with one of our popular destination experiences. These are expertly selected to show you the most interesting and inspiring parts of the Baltic region.
There is nowhere better to take in this primaeval wonder of nature than from onboard one of our traditional or authentic cruises, and we will bring you the very best these northern lands have to offer. On our Northern Lights cruises, you will explore the endless magnificent Norwegian coastline featuring charming villages, or the beautiful and unspoiled island of Iceland before we venture far beyond the Arctic Circle in search of the mythical Aurora Borealis.
If you cruise to Norway in search of the Northern Lights, you will visit Tromso, an enchanting city lying almost 220 miles north of the Arctic Circle, and Bergen, Norway’s second-largest city is surrounded by lofty mountains and fronts crystalline blue waters.
Or cruise to the beautiful and unspoilt island of Iceland, with its colourful, cosmopolitan capital of Reykjavik, in search of this fabled phenomenon. Part-old Norse, part modern city, brightly coloured houses create unique streetscapes. You will also see Invergordon in the Scottish Highlands and the remote and tranquil archipelagos of Orkney and the Faroe Islands to complete an unforgettable cruise itinerary.
Please note viewing of the Northern Lights is subject to local weather and atmospheric conditions.
A Norway cruise will take your breath away – and not just because of the crystal-clear air. The sheer scale of the fjords must be seen to be believed, and once witnessed will never be forgotten. Gliding along mirror-smooth waters onboard our Ambience cruise ship, you’ll be awed by the pristine landscapes full of Viking history: an endless, unspoilt vista of craggy cliffs, magnificent waterfalls and majestic mountains.
Our no-fly cruises will take you from magnificent fjord to picture-perfect cruise ports and villages dotted like jewels among lush green fields. Millions of years of glacial activity created Norway’s uniquely spectacular coastline. It is an astonishing landscape of intricately carved fjords that nestle between impressive mountains that leave you awestruck by their natural grandeur. An endless trove of breathtakingly beautiful natural wonders, Fjordland is ‘hidden Norway’ aching to be discovered on your next cruise holiday.
Ashore, visit historic Bergen, a city surrounded by seven hills and seven fjords that maintains an element of its historic past with carefully preserved Bryggen. As a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site these fabulous wooden houses jostle for importance with the art museums and thriving fish market. The culinary delights of Norway are heavily inspired by the glittering sea, often featuring fish salted or preserved to last the winter storms, the cuisine from this part of the world is delicious and unique. Picturesque Flåm is a must-visit port-of-call due to the spectacular railway journey that takes you up the mountain peaks and through wild, unspoilt valleys that snake up impossibly steep slopes, promising unspoilt scenery. And there are plenty more destination experiences to ensure our guests experience the true spirit of the country on our Norwegian Fjords Cruises.
