Upon arrival at the airport, you shall be met by our local representative who will direct you for your transfer to Southampton Cruise Port. Once you arrive at the Pier, you will hand over your luggage to the porters and start Check In formalities. Your adventure begins as soon as you embark on the 93,000-ton Norwegian Jade by NCL. The facilities on board are numerous. The ship itself is a great experience, the perfect blend of world-class amenities, advanced technology and classic style. Just refurbished in 2016, she radiates the elegance and ambience one would find in a grand hotel. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable 14-night cruise to the Fjords, Iceland & Scotland as the ship leaves port at 17:00hrs.

Fun day at sea enjoying the ship’s facilities including 17 delicious dining options, 15 bars and lounges, a spacious spa, an always-exciting casino, plus tons of fun for kids of every age. Lavish theatre shows, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a sports court, bars and lounges of all kinds, pools, hot tubs, kid’s centres, teen discos and more are all on board and included in your cruise fare.

Today’s port of call is Bergen, the second largest city in Norway. You have the opportunity to discover the so-called “City Between the Seven Mountains”. Soak up the atmosphere of Bryggen, the old Hanseatic merchants’ quarter. Comprising a maze of characteristic wooden buildings with pointed gables facing onto the harbour, the old Bryggen Hanseatic wharf is architecturally unique and is included on UNESCO’s list of world heritage of history and culture. Continue to the 12th Century Maria Church, the oldest building still existing in Bergen and one of the most outstanding Romanesque churches in the country. The ship shall depart from the port at 2000hrs.

Alesund is one of Norway’s most picturesque and charming fishing ports. It lies at the mouthof Stor Fjord and is set on two islands which are connected by bridges. After a hearty breakfast on board, today we suggest you explore the main sights of this modern, pulsating town with a varied cultural scene, exciting cafés and restaurants and a rich assortment of shops.Enjoy some free time to browse around the shops before returning to the ship in time for departure at 1900hrs.

Today will take you to Shetland’s only town, Lerwick, a bustling, cosmopolitan seaport with services and amenities only found in much larger places on the British mainland. The extensive leisure and entertainment facilities provide warm hospitality to visitors. The old waterfront is thronged with pleasure boats, visiting yachts, historic craft and working fishing boats. Explore a variety of lively bars and clubs, ranging from popular “theme” bars to more traditional hostelries. Ship will set sail at 17:00hrs.

Day at sea. On such a ship there should never be a dull moment! On the Norwegian Jade, you are sure to enjoy every moment! The ship’s animators will be organizing varied activities by the pool deck and other lounges (kindly consult your ship’s daily programme for timings). From traditional fine dining to endless buffets with custom-order action stations, there is a host of delicious choices included in your cruise fare. For an additional cover charge, you’ll have access to a world of possibilities including gourmet French, Japanese Teppanyaki and an upscale steakhouse – 17 different dining options in all.

As you enter the beautiful city of Reykjavik, today you will be able to explore Iceland’s amazing landscapes forged by glaciers, geysers and volcanoes. We suggest you to include a tour to the magnificent Gulfoss waterfall, the spectacular Geysir geothermal area and treat yourself to a trip to the Blue Lagoon, a luxurious spa that is one of Iceland’s most popular destinations. With steamy, mineral-rich water harvested from beneath the earth, it’s the perfect place to relieve stress and tension in an idyllic backdrop. The ship will stay in Reykjavik overnight.

Europe’s northernmost and westernmost capital is a delightful destination, part old Norse, part modern city, with a quirky personality of its own. One of the advantages of Reykjavik is being able to see it on foot. You can find a wide choice of museums, galleries, restaurants and cafes. The downtown area is rather small and walkable. Return in time for the ship as it will set sail at 16:00hrs.

After breakfast you will enter the port of Akureyri, the second largest city in Iceland. Located on Iceland’s longest fjord, Eyjafjordur, Akureyri has been settled since Vikings arrived in the 9th century.Today’s most popular trip is to Lake Myvatn, an hour’s drive away. Located in this district is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland, The Gooafoss. The water of the river Skjalfandafjot falls from a height of 12 metres over a width of 30 meters. The trip usually includes a stop at the sulfurous steaming ‘mud pots’. The ship shall depart from the port at 1900hrs.

Whether you seek an adrenaline rush or total tranquillity, this ship have it all. Try the different activities on board. Melt away land-based stress with a spa massage, build a scrapbook of memories or simply relax by the poolside.

Located on mainland, it is the principal harbour and capital of Orkney. Steep-roofed stone houses line streets that wind around the medieval St Magnus Cathedral. No trip to Orkney is complete without discovering and exploring the smaller islands that surround the mainland. The islands are virtually a museum of prehistoric times. The ship set sails at 19:00hrs.

The town’s natural deep harbour carved by glaciers makes it the ideal cruise portal to the Highlands. Once ashore, head out to see the Loch Ness monster, Culloden Battlefield, the town of Inverness, a castle or perhaps a whisky distillery. Enjoy the picture-perfect scenery and perhaps an opportunity to chat with a Highlander eager to introduce you to his fabled land and its rich heritage.

Today’s port of call is located in the north east, short drive away from the most beautiful cityscapes in the world, Edinburgh. With Scotland’s most famous castle dominating the city skyline, there is plenty to see and do with the perfect balance between all things traditional and contemporary. Built on extinct volcanoes atop an inlet from the North Sea and enveloped by rolling hills, lochs and forests, Edinburgh invites exploration. This is a city of elegant streets, cobbled alleys and incomparable sunsets.

This last full day prior to the end of your wonderful cruise shall be spent at sea. You again shall have ample time to relax and make use of the facilities and other amenities this remarkable ship has to offer. In the evening you will be instructed to leave your luggage outside your stateroom as bags are transported ashore by NCL personnel early next morning.
