Optional shore excursions are available today.

Early in the morning the ship docks at the historic city of Trondheim, where you have about 3.5 hours to explore the city on your own or take an optional sightseeing tour. Trondheim is the original capital of Norway, and until the 16th century, it was known as Nidaros. Here you will find the Nidaros Cathedral, one of Scandinavia’s largest buildings from the Middle Ages, along with picturesque little wooden houses. From Trondheim, the ship sails onwards to Rorvik.
