Norwegian Coastal Voyage is introducing three theme cruises with five departures from Bergen between April 12 and Sept. 16: the seven-day Norwegian Maritime Traditions on April 12 aboard the 482-berth MS Nordlys; the seven-day Norwegian Life and Heritage, April 26 and Sept.16, on the 490-berth MS Nordkapp; and nine-day Life and Music of Edvard Grieg, the country’s most famous composer, on April 30 and Aug. 29, on the 674-berth MS Trollfjord.

The Trollfjord sailings celebrating the music of Grieg (1843-1907) feature daily recitals by award-winning pianist Rune Alver and lectures by Eilif Lotveit, manager for Bergen International Festival concerts at the Grieg estate; a concert at Troldhaugen (Troll Hill), the composer’s Victorian home near Bergen; the Ringve Music Museum in Trondheim, where young music students play historic instruments; and two nights at a Bergen hotel with breakfast.

The lectures onboard the Nordlys are led by Professor Bard Kolltveit, director of research at the Norwegian Maritime Museum in Oslo, and on the Nordkapp , by Dr. Fenella Bazin, retired director of post-graduate studies at the Centre for Manx Studies on the Isle of Man and Norwegian Coastal Voyage aficionado.

Norwegian Coastal Voyages provide a first-class cruise ship experience with a lifeline to remote towns and villages along Norway’s 1,250-mile coast, carrying local passengers and cargo to 34 ports from Bergen to Kirkenes, high above the Arctic Circle.
