In the evening, the ship heads east across Vestfjord toward Bodø.

After leaving Ornes, you'll travel through exciting and colorful waters, sailing through narrow straits bordered by lush agricultural land. Nearly every peak of the towering mountains in the background is associated with a local legend. Crossing the Arctic Circle once again, you'll pass both Nesna and Sandnessjoen. On the approach to Bronnøysund, which you'll reach in the afternoon, you'll pass the spectacular, mythical Seven Sisters Mountains. Make sure you're on deck when the ship leaves Bronnøysund and you'll see why the captain needs a steady hand! The last port of call for today will be Rorvik.

Day 15 Trondheim - Kristiansund – Molde (B, L, D)
You arrive in Trondheim early, and you can use the morning to visit Norway's largest medieval church, Nidaros Cathedral, and the newly restored Archbishop's Residence. The ship will then continue its journey, sailing out through the beautiful Trondheimsfjord, past the islands of Grip and Hitra, with its large flocks of deer. It will then pass Smola before arriving in Kristiansund, a town famous for the local salted cod.

During the night, the ship will call at Torvik, Maløy, and Florø. The World's Most Beautiful Voyage is drawing to a close. But don't say good-bye just yet . . . ahead of you lies mile after mile of spectacular west Norway scenery: holly trees on Svanøy, the mouth of Sognefjord, and the beautiful archipelago on the approach to Bergen.
