Amsterdam
A stop in Amsterdam offers the chance to explore the sights of one of Europe's most colorful, dynamic and historic cities. Visitors are naturally drawn to the historic city center where you'll find some of the world's top art museums, including the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. And at Dam Square you can tour the Royal Palace before continuing to the tourist attractions on the Canal Belt. The iconic network of waterways that surrounds the downtown area offers a picturesque backdrop for sightseeing by bike or canal boat.

Rosyth (Edinburgh)
Rosyth is in the ancient Kingdom of Fife, so excursions to historic sites in this region are easily undertaken: whether a visit to the royal burgh of Culross (an important destination in the 16th through 18th centuries) or a trip up the coast to the most famous host of golf in the world: St. Andrews.
From the port of Rosyth, you are only minutes away from one of the most charming cities in Western Europe: the Scottish capital of Edinburgh. A top destination for travelers to the U.K., Edinburgh is known not only for its nearly fairy-tale appearance, with a castle hovering over the city center, but also for its rich arts scene and long cultural heritage.

Torshavn Faroe Islands
Named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder, and flanked by the large mountains Husareyn and Kirkjuboreyn, the Faroese capital is at once dramatic, peaceful, quaint and modern. It's a charming and fascinating place to explore, thanks to an abundance of turf-roofed houses, historical sites like the remnants of a 17th-century fortress and an attractive harbor area that still processes fish and produces wool goods

Djupivogur
What draws visitors to this remote corner of the country is its dramatic natural setting. Located on Berufjordur, it is near stunning natural wonders like the Hofellsjokull Glacier and the Valley of Waterfalls. Wherever you journey in the region, you'll come upon stunning vistas and a landscape shaped by glaciers and geothermal activity.

Akureyri & Scenic cruising Eyjafjordur
Often described as the capital of north Iceland, the country's second-largest city is both vibrant and pretty, and serves as an ideal hub for exploring the incredible landscape that surrounds it. From here it's possible to explore some of the country's most memorable landscapes, starting with Akureyri's own fjord, Eyjafjordur, where you'll find several museums (including the Icelandic Folk and Outsider Art Museum), fishing villages like Grenivik and plenty of dramatic mountain scenery. Farther afield are the island of Grimsey, the volcanic wonderland of Lake Myvatn and a whole host of waterfalls, gorges, churches and saga sites.

Eyjafjordur & Scenic cruising Eyjafjordurdj
Eyjafjordur, which translated to English means 'Island Fjord,' is one of Iceland's longest fjords. Lined by peaks that descend to the water's edge, it runs some 64 kilometers (40 miles) long and is located roughly in the middle of the country's northern coast. Hydrothermal vents surround the fjord and the small island of Hrisey sits smack in the middle of it.

Reykjavik
With geothermal water pumping through its veins and a staggering backdrop of gnarly lava fields, majestic glaciers and rainbow-colored houses, Reykjavik is famous for its natural wonders and dramatic scenery. But what is less well known is that the diminutive Icelandic city has cultural offerings to rival many destinations twice its size. The city's creative output is in high gear with internationally acclaimed designers, musicians and artists.

Lerwick, Shetland Islands
Although part of the United Kingdom, Shetland's roots are as much Norse as Scottish. This is reflected in the archipelago's many archaeological sites, cultural events and a unique dialect that borrows heavily from Old Norse. Located midway between Scotland, Norway and the Faroe Islands, the archipelago is home to diverse animal life including the iconic Shetland ponies, easily recognizable by their distinctive short legs and heavy fur coats. Get a closer look at the ponies and the unique black Shetland sheep on the scenic drive to the remarkable Bronze Age archaeological site at Jarlshof.
