Norwegian Cruise Lines
Norwegian cruise lines are an increasingly common set of companies when it comes to the cruise line business. When thinking of cruise lines the obvious destinations are placed in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. There is though big business in Norwegian cruise lines.
An increasing number of people are booking cruises with Norwegian cruise lines in order to take in the beauty of Norway and other Scandinavian countries. The coast of Norway is consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful coastlines to be found anywhere in the world. There is no better way to take in the wonders of the Norwegian fjords than from the deck of a boat run by one of the Norwegian cruise lines. A fjord is an impressive site from sea level, as it is a long and narrow bay of water enclosed as it is by steep cliffs on either side. The glacial activity that causes the fjord can be seen all around.
It is because not just the fjords that attract people to make use of the Norwegian cruise lines, there are many other sites to be taken in. Pick the time of the year just right and a passenger can view the Midnight Sun or the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). The midnight sun is a phenomenon found within the Arctic Circle, and Antarctic. Norwegian cruise lines that take in places like Syalbard in Norway will experience daylight around the clock. Syalbard in fact is famous for having no night from the middle of April to the end of August.
Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights, is nature's equivalent to a massive laser show and is a must for anyone on Norwegian cruise lines. You do have to be on the right cruise at the right time though as Aurora Borealis can normally only be seen from March to April or September to October. If you are lucky enough to be on one of the cruises, then you will be able to view a green or red light show.
There are plenty of other things to be taken in when going on ships with Norwegian cruise lines. Norway is full of interesting towns and villages including Oslo, Bergen and Tromso. Tromso is particularly interesting to visitors due to the presence for the large number of wooden houses to be found there. Tromso is also a place for World War II enthusiasts as the place where the Tirpitz battleship was sunk.
