Northern Europe Cruises
Step away from Mediterranean Sea and expand your horizons with a cruise around the Northern Sea, visiting a variety of cities and locations in Northern Europe. This area has so much to offer to cruisers, whether you visit the port city of Zeebrugge, near Bruges, in Belgium or the poignant surroundings of Le Havre in France; there are many stories to be told and culture to experience on a Pullmantur luxury cruise.
Travel on an Armada Cruise and venture into Northern Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea. On this cruise route, you will visit Ijmuiden, Netherlands, which is a port city located at the mouth of the North Sea Canal into Amsterdam. Via the canal, you can explore the superb city of Amsterdam by taking a boat tour along the threaded waterways and admire the brightly coloured architecture and beautiful bridges.
Pullmantur provide cruises to a variety of Northern European destinations covering these cities and many more.
You can also experience everything that Iceland has to offer including geographical and geological wonders; the northern lights; and the Aurora Borealis on a Pullmantur cruise. Or if you want an experience filled with sun, crystal blue waters and a mixture of North African and South European culture; experience a Pullmantur Mediterranean or Iberian cruise.
If you enjoy Northern Europe and want to extend your travels deeper into Europe; you can do so with a Pullmantur cruise into the Baltic or Scandinavia regions.
Regarded as “The Gateway to Belgium,” Zeebrugge is also the gateway to Bruges – a preserved town steeped in 13th century culture and heritage. The paths of cobbles will lead you to an extensive selection of ales and opulent chocolate, making this the perfect indulgence town. Here you can visit the De Halve Maan brewery – which offers a tour of the beer making process. The Choco-Story Museum is also worth a visit and offers visitors a unique insight into the transition of cocoa into chocolate; with even the opportunity to witness the chocolate making process where you can sample the delights for yourself.
A visit to the French port city of Le Havre, Normandy, on board a Charms of Europe Cruise will lead travellers through the poignant and dark history of World War 2. The allied landings of D-Day, 6 June 1944, live on in the memories of the Americans and British alike and it remains the largest seaborne invasion in history. Today, the port of Le Havre is France’s second largest and the town has undergone a major reconstruction; with many cultural sites of interest and an array of museums and religious sites.
