Setting sail from Tilbury

The reasons for locating London's only purpose-built deep water cruise terminal in Tilbury were of course pragmatic rather than aesthetic, and we're not going to pretend that this is a glamorous place to begin or end a cruise. However, the location on the Essex bank of the Thames, a short distance from the M25, means that it's a convenient turnaround port for those living in the South East, and it's only 45 minutes by train to central London. The only real point of interest in Tilbury itself is the 16th century fort, situated just along the river from the cruise terminal.

Arriving in Bergen

Beautiful Bergen, Norway's former capital, is a perfect city to explore on foot. Bryggen - the old Hanseatic wharf, and a UNESCO World Heritage site - still has the old harbour timber buildings, whilst other attractions include the funicular up Mount Floyen, with stunning views when you reach the top, and the busy fish market.
