Berlin/Hamburg, Germany (overnight land program) »    

Docking in Hamburg, you will be introduced to Germany’s second-largest city and biggest port, with all the confidence and vivacity to match. A key player in the Hanseatic League and perpetual magnet for maritime activities, Hamburg is one of Europe’s most affluent cities, drawing media, publishing and financial enterprises to its waterside locale. Significant architecture, waterways crisscrossed by myriad bridges (more than London, Amsterdam and Venice combined), stately parks and gardens, and streets imbued with WWII history make Hamburg a fine destination for art and history buffs. Hamburg also lives up to its moniker, “Gateway to the World,” especially as it relates to Berlin, situated 180 miles to the southeast. Decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the German capital is vibrant with a sense of purpose and packed with important sights. The Reichstag Parliament, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and remnants of the disassembled Wall are highlights of any Berlin experience.

Note: Arrival and departure times for this port will depend on tidal restrictions.

Jul 4, Monday
Kristiansand, Norway » 7 am 3 pm

Situated on Norway’s west coast, the popular resort town of Kristiansand is enveloped by the greens of lush hills and parks and edged by the inky waters of the sea. A favorite way to enjoy the scenery is to visit one of the city’s several parks for a breath of fresh air and stroll among the locals. Another way is to marry the lovely outdoors with the area’s cultural interests with a walk in Posebyen, Kristiansand’s old town with one of Northern Europe’s largest collections of characteristic wooden buildings. The fish quay offers one of Norway’s best fish markets and great choices for dining. Another option is a boat trip across the waterway to Lillesand, a tiny, immaculate town with narrow alleyways and a pretty waterfront. White is the dominate hue here, with the quaint whitewashed clapboard buildings gleaming in the summertime sun.

Newcastle upon Tyne, England » 7 am 5 pm

Formerly a coal town, Newcastle Upon Tyne is today a hip and trendy destination, reinventing itself after the heady days of full-steam-ahead industrialization screeched to the near standstill of recession. “Geordies,” as the locals are known, give Newcastle a distinct character—and a practically indecipherable dialect.  The tough life of the Geordies has imbued in them, somewhat surprisingly, the gift of optimism, one they share willingly and generously. The people are one wonderful draw of the area; another is the Northumberland coast and Pennine hills, home to some of England’s loveliest scenery and ruins of Hadrian’s Wall. For all the appeal of the land, you may find it hard to leave the city, with its famed suspended-deck Tyne Bridge, graceful Victorian Central Arcade and charming Grainger Town, the beautiful and historic heart of the city.

Jul 8, Friday
