Northern Lights cruises

A Northern Lights cruise on Cunard offers you an unparalleled way to explore Norway’s dreamlike fjords, with the added possibility of witnessing the spectacular enigma of the Aurora Borealis - nature’s most spellbinding phenomena.

Where we sail

By day, you’ll visit some of Norway’s most enchanting coastal towns, discovering the region’s rich culture and scenery. While at night the prospect of the Northern Lights is enough to tempt you from your stateroom into the crisp, still, darkness beyond.


Few towns are located in as magnificent surroundings as Narvik. With mountains and fjords, as far as the eye can see, a trip on Narvik’s cable car offers stunning views, 650 metres above sea level.


Rebuilt after a fire in 1904, Alesund is uniquely art nouveau in style (something of a rarity in Norway). It’s spread across a series of islands, best seen from the city’s famous Fjellstua viewpoint.


Multicultural Tromso is one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. Home to over 100 nationalities, the city offers a wealth of eateries serving some of the best native cuisine in the Arctic.


Charming and postcard pretty, Stavanger is an idyllic coastal town, famous for its perfectly preserved wooden buildings (some dating back to the 18th century) and miles of pristine white sand.

Sailing on board Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria’s warmth and appeal is palpable the moment you step aboard. Whether exploring her expansive sundecks, indulging in afternoon tea, or simply sitting quietly in her Winter Garden, there’s no shortage of transformative ways to escape reality throughout your voyage.

Sailing on board Queen Elizabeth

Elegant and thoughtfully designed, a Baltic cruise on Queen Elizabeth transports you to a bygone era of ocean travel. Whether taking your box at the theatre or passing an afternoon playing croquet, you’ll find being on board as captivating as exploring the ports you call at.
