Discovery sails from Greenock late this afternoon.
Spend today at sea cruising northeast and enjoying the facilities on board Discovery.
Our first port of call is the Shetland capital of Lerwick. This town is gateway to a land of traditional crafts and an abundance of bird-life. Wander the town, or join the excursion to the 3,000-year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof, with its Bronze and Iron Age remains.
Geirangerfjord is one of the smallest but most beautiful fjords, its twists and turns marked by crashing waterfalls and ancient villages such as Hellesylt and Geiranger. Disembark at Hellesylt to take an overland excursion through the scenery of the fjord and its surroundings.
Today, Discovery arrives in Romsdalfjord. Join our shore excursion at Andalsnes, and see the scenery of the region, including the vertiginous Trollstigen (Troll's Ladder) a road at the head of the Valldal valley. From Andalsnes, there may be a chance to visit the wooden Rodven stave church in its setting beside the fjord.
This morning Discovery docks in Bergen - an ancient Hanseatic city of cobbled streets and medieval houses, and birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg. Visit the harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.
Your final full day's cruise aboard Discovery is spent at sea, sailing south and home.
This morning we return to Greenock.
In 2013, 20,000-tonne Discovery sets out on a series of exciting departures from ports around the UK, on her first season of cruises. With her classic profile, eight passenger decks, and accommodation for 700 passengers, Discovery is a smaller ship built in traditional style, and offers the perfect 'home from home' for a memorable holiday.
