Why Northern Europe Is a Great Choice for Summer Cruises

Northern Europe cruises include those to the Baltic, Scandinavia, Norwegian fjords, the British Isles, and islands of the northern Atlantic. Whatever the area is called -- it's a wonderful summer cruise destination! The hotel and dining costs can be very expensive in northern Europe, which makes a cruise tour of the area even more attractive.
Cruisers going to northern Europe have diverse choices of prices, ships, and cruise lines. The cruising season to northern Europe, Scandinavia, and the Baltic states runs from mid-April into October, with the busiest (and most expensive) cruises in June, July, and August. Here is a list of the major cruise lines for Scandinavia, the Baltic, and northern Europe (listed alphabetically).

Azamara Club Cruises
The Azamara Quest of Azamara Club Cruises sails a variety of 10 to 14-day cruises from Stockholm, Copenhagen, London, and Edinburgh in northern Europe in 2016.

The Celebrity Silhouette cruises to northern Europe from Amsterdam or Stockholm with 12-14 day cruises, and the Celebrity Eclipse sails from Southampton roundtrip on 14-day cruises to northern Europe.
Both ships also feature British Isles cruise itineraries.

Most of Hurtigruten's ships serve as both a cruise line and a ferry service for the towns and small villages along the fjords on the western coast of Norway. Hurtigruten operates these voyages year-round between Bergen and Kirkenes, so those who want to experience Norway during a season other than summer can choose one of these voyages. In addition to the coastal Norway cruises, the expedition ship MS Flam sails to Greenland from Copenhagen during the summer months.
