P&O Cruises’ Iona to begin her inaugural season in The Norwegian fjords
The Norwegian fjords are a wild wonderland of breathtaking scenery, cultural gems and action-packed adventure. Iona begins her inaugural season in this incredible region with departures throughout the spring and summer of 2020.
Iona’s Norwegian Fjord cruises will depart and return to Southampton and ports of call will include Olden, Bergen, Hellesylt, Geiranger, Geirangerfjord, Stavanger, Alesund and Hardanderfjord.
Excursion options will include a bike descent of the shores of a lake 1,000m above sea level, kayaking past waterfalls and rafting on fast-flowing rivers.
P&O Cruises senior vice president, Paul Ludlow said: “From the initial stages of her build we knew that Iona would be sailing to the fjords and as such, every single detail has been designed to maximize the views, the ever-changing vistas and remarkable landscape.
“SkyDome, with its glass roof and temperature control will ensure that guests have an unrivalled viewpoint as the ship sails through the breathtaking vertical expanses of narrow gorges and blue sky and past mountains, glaciers and wildlife.
“Iona has been designed to make the sea the star. With incredible views guaranteed from all over the ship, the whole season of fjords itineraries will enable guests to have the choice of when they want to travel to this spectacular area.”
