Luxury Cruise Lines

When the finest cruise vacation is your top priority, this is the place to start.

On a luxury cruise line, guests experience highly personalized service, a more intimate (and usually formal) onboard experience, gourmet cuisine, well-appointed accommodations, and fantastic amenities. Many of these brands have smaller ships, allowing them to reach ports of call that the larger ships can't, which results in unique itineraries.

All of these brands feature a version of all-inclusive pricing, and some of them have ships with all-suite accommodations. Although these cruise lines are usually more expensive than the rest, they also provide their guests with so much more, resulting in a fantastic value when considering all that's included.

Sailing Yachts, sail-assisted motor ships, offer a really unique vacation experience.

Their ships are usually anywhere from mid-sized to very large "mega" ships, accommodating thousands of guests. These ships give the feel of being in a large resort.

Mainstream cruise lines are a great option for just about everyone (including multi-generation families, and first-time cruisers), and typically have great youth programs.

During the cruise, entertainment may include Broadway productions, Vegas-style shows, comedians, and music. Some of these lines have select formal nights during the cruise.

River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.

Things to do near Stavanger, Norway

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Stavanger, along with a brief description:

♦ Old Stavanger

Old Stavanger, known locally as Gamle Stavanger, is a cozy and historic city center featuring over 170 wooden buildings, mostly white cottages built in the 18th century. There are also many other architectural styles on display in this easily walkable town. Plus, there’s also an array of boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants, where you can taste regional favorites such as lutefisk (dried fish).

♦ Museums

Stavanger is brimming with several engaging and unconventional museums well worth visiting. The canning industry played a pivotal role in Stavanger’s industrial growth, which is commemorated at the Norwegian Canning Museum. There’s also the Norwegian Petroleum Museum. Built to resemble an oil platform, this contemporary center features interactive exhibits depicting the lineage of Europe’s oil and gas capital.

♦ Pulpit Rock

Pulpit Rock, also referred to as Preikestolen, hovers 1,980 feet (604 meters) above the Lysefjord. Hike to the top (guided tours are available for less experienced hikers) to gaze over the ocean from the plateau. The hike stretches roughly five miles and takes three-four hours, but the famous trail is well-marked and fairly accessible. Staring down Norway's fabled fjords from the apex is a moment you won't soon forget.
