Columbus sails from London Tilbury 22 July 2019 calling at Eidfjord, Cruises Hardangerfjord, Flåm, Cruises Sognefjord, Bergen and returns to London Tilbury. If a Fjord cruise is not an obvious choice with children, think again. Eidfjord is the gateway to the largest high mountain plateau in Europe and Norway’s largest national park with child friendly troll hunting walks, Viking graveyards and stunning waterfalls to explore. Calling in Flåm there is the chance to ride on one of the world’s steepest and most spectacular railways, the Flåm railway is an exhilarating journey. In Bergen, the inspiration to the Disney scenes in Frozen, families can take a ride on the funicular to the summit of Mount Fløien.

Grandchildren who loved ‘The Greatest Showman’ will delight in Cirque de CMV, a special circus themed cruise sailing from London Tilbury 28 July on a Grand Baltic Cities and St Petersburg itinerary. Specialist performers from La Soiree, Blackpool Tower Circus and former Cirque De Solei aerialist, Renato Pires will perform on board. Circus experts will engage in the art of juggling, diablo, balancing, slapstick and illusion with a programme of workshops and sideshows, or passengers can just sit back and enjoy the stunning acts.
