Mountains rise up steeply from the miles-upon-miles of winding waterways, leading to some of the most charming cities, towns and villages you'll ever visit. These are the spectacular Norwegian fjords – top of many cruise-goers list, and quite rightly too. You'll set sail with Celebrity Cruises from Southampton, heading north en route to one of the most beautiful landscapes on earth.

Geiranger Norway's network of fjords are one of Europe's top bucket list destinations. Here hundreds of narrow waterways which cut into some of the most spectacular mountain landscapes extend for miles inland. And possibly the most famous and picture perfect of them all is the Geirangerfiord. You'll wind your way through the cliff-edged fjord as you make your way to the perfectly-placed village of Geiranger where you can disembark and partake in a kayaking excursion, waterfall or mountain summit hike or bike ride. This UNESCO-listed landscape an outdoor adventurer's paradise.
Sail from Southampton on Celebrity Silhouette Innovative dining choices, the best wine collection at sea and spacious staterooms are just a few things that make this delightful ship so popular. As well as visiting the Norwegian Fjords during the spring and summer months, the Silhouette also departs from the UK and sets sail north east to Russia and south to the Canary Islands and the Azores.
Bergen Norway is full of charming cities and towns, with the fjord-surrounded city of Bergen possibly the most picturesque of them all. From the mountainside dwellings and vibrant wooden buildings of the old wharf to the small-town charm, it's not hard to see why this is such a popular cruise destination. There are ample opportunities to explore the city and its breathtaking surroundings on one of Celebrity's optional excursions or self-guided city walks.
