A cruise holiday is the perfect way to relax. After joining the ship, there’s no driving to do, no cooking, no cleaning. Instead, holiday-makers can simply enjoy life on board as they are transported to wonderful destinations. There’s sea air, the chance to meet people, plus the ship’s on-board entertainment and excellent dining to divert the ‘intrepid’ voyager.

Norway and Iceland are choice destinations for cruises, famed for their fascinating ports of call and their breathtaking beauty. Both have in common dramatic landscapes, Viking heritage and amazing wildlife, such as the whales that frequent their seas. Norway offers fantastic scenery - glaciers and long, twisting fjords - and charming cities full of colour. Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice, offers the sight of geysers, mountains, volcanoes, churches and Viking farmsteads, as well as Reykjavik’s famous Blue Lagoon pool warmed by geothermal currents.

Newmarket Holidays is now extending its cruise range to offer 2014 departures from the Scottish port of Rosyth, as well as adding extra dates from its other ports. It currently offers Norwegian and Icelandic cruises from a variety of convenient locations, including Bristol, Hull, Newcastle, Tilbury and Leith. Package prices include accommodation in a choice of cabins, full-board (full breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and midnight snacks), on-board entertainment, and the services of friendly, professional crews and cruise staff. The ships, MS Discovery and MS Marco Polo, also have a range of additional features from Jacuzzis and gyms to shops, bars and restaurants. Both are beautiful, small ocean-liners in the classic tradition, in an age of cruising dominated by vast, impersonal, floating hotels.

Incentives to book a cruise to Norway or Iceland with Newmarket doesn’t end with the vessel and the landscape and culture of the destinations. Cruises into these northern waters also offer the opportunity to witness the amazing natural wonders of the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun. There are calls at remote and fascinating island communities, such as the Orkneys, Faroes and Shetlands, not to mention numerous optional excursions to choose from.

For something extra-special, there’s also a great reason to plan ahead to spring 2015. That’s when Newmarket’s Solar Eclipse and Northern Lights Cruise aboard Marco Polo sets sail. Places are expected to sell out fast for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to witness two unforgettable heavenly phenomena during the ship’s passage to Reykjavik. As well as cruise holidays, Newmarket Holidays also specialise in French Riviera Holidays.
