Northern Explorer - ms Nieuw Statendam to Scotland, Iceland and Norway

Any Cruise, Anywhere, Any Time

Northern Explorer

ms Nieuw Statendam

Northern Explorer – who doesn’t love a great adventure and that’s what awaits on this luxurious, wonder-filled journey to the edge of the Arctic Circle. Our exploration of northern waters embraces Iceland, Norway, England, Scotland and Holland and taking us there will be Holland America Line’s latest, classically elegant ship, ms Nieuw Statendam.

A magical two-day stay in Amsterdam with an included city tour allows you to get your bearings plus time to explore on your own. The magic continues as we board the beautiful ms Nieuw Statendam for our 14-night voyage that promises enough exciting experiences to last a lifetime. Beginning with the Queen’s own, one-time Royal Yacht Britannia, and the goosebump-inducing extravaganza of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, staged amongst the storied, stone walls of Edinburgh Castle.

The awesome geysers, volcanoes, waterfalls and glacier-lined fjords of Iceland are next with a chance to luxuriate in rejuvenating, 40-degree, geothermal baths by the sea. Beyond the horizon in Norway lie more majestic sights – soaring peaks lining the world’s grandest fjords and towns of colourful, wooden houses hugging the waterfront. A final day in Amsterdam sees us toasting the trip with a cruise along the city’s entrancing canals – a fitting finale to a grand journey hosted all the way by Cruise Express. Come and explore northern climes with us in 2019.
