Discover the land of endless daylight on this unforgettable summer cruise into the Arctic Circle

Winter above the Arctic Circle is all about catching a glimpse of the magical Northern Lights. In summer, however, the focus turns to the phenomenon that's alien to all of us that don't live there - the midnight sun.

On this magical 15-day full-board cruise, you'll experience the endless daylight for yourself as you enjoy all the highlights of Norway's spectacular coastline: from exploring the UNESCOlisted port of Bergen, the city of Tromsø and the ancient Viking trading post of Trondheim, to crossing the Arctic Circle, seeing the remote and beautiful Lofoten Islands and visiting North Cape, Europe's most northerly point.

You'll travel to nine ports on the magnificent Regal Princess, upon which you'll feel welcomed the moment you step aboard. The ship's team prides itself on its attentive hospitality and friendly service, and you'll experience the spacious suites and wonderful amenities. Prima readers will receive a free room upgrade and exclusive onboard credit.

Other highlights of your cruise will include a visit to the uninhabited island of Skjoldungen, where you might see bearded seals, killer whales and rare birds. You'll also take a memorable trip to the Jostedalsbreen Glacier and picturesque Olden nearby.
