In summer, Norway’s overabundance is marvelous to see. It is a wonderful time to be there, and being there on a Seabourn cruise is elegant, easy and every bit as much fun.

The northern hemisphere’s annual sunward tilt signals a celebration in Scandinavia’s modern capitals and picturesque towns. Restaurants in Stockholm set tables on the sidewalks. At lunchtime, Danish workers bask on park benches, faces turned to the sun. It is a wonderful time to visit as parks and gardens in Oslo and Helsinki come to life with brilliant flowers and the sounds of children playing. In St. Petersburg, descend an elegant staircase between sparkling, gilded fountains at the extravagant riverside Summer Palace. Relax by the pool as your ship eases gracefully between towering granite cliffs in Norway’s narrow Trollfjord. There’s no lovelier season than a Scandinavian summer, and no better way to experience it than on board Seabourn.
