Vote now to be entered for the chance to win a Norwegian fjords cruise for two with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.

Departing from Southampton on 1 April 2025 for a nine-night Springtime Norwegian Fjords cruise aboard Balmoral, you’ll soon leave the cares of life behind as you unwind at sea. During the day, enjoy scenic sails or relax by the swimming pool. Save the nights for illusionists, musicals and live comedy in the theatre. Your first stop, Vik, is nestled on Sognefjord. Dubbed the King of the Fjords, Norway’s largest and deepest lake stretches 200km from Bergen to the village of Skjolden and is home to two early 12th-century churches. Next you’ll cruise the coast to Haugesund to admire an eclectic mix of architectural styles alongside the Haraldshaugen Monument, which is dedicated to the first Viking king. Then you’ll head inland to marvel at Langfoss – voted by CNN as one of the world’s top 10 waterfalls – and explore an Iron Age Viking burial site in Eidfjord village, overlooking the spectacular Hardangerfjord. Stretching for 197km, it’s known as the Queen of the Fjords, and you might recognise the rock formation known as Trolltunga – ‘Troll’s Tongue’ – which protrudes high above its waters.

• A nine-night Fred. Olsen cruise for two worth £5,000
• Suite accommodation
• Daily breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea,
a la carte dining and late-night snacks for two
