9 Day 6 - 14 August 2025

Ambassador’s second lady of the sea.  Aptly named to further emphasise Ambassador’s commitment to inspire and delight every guest to enjoy an authentic cruise experience effortlessly, and sustainably.  Ambition carries 1,200 passengers.  Dining options will inspire you with two main restaurants, speciality dining options and a more casual bistro-style café.  Sit back, relax and enjoy a drink in one of the four bars, lounges and pub.  Or take in a show in the tiered main theatre, or discover your hidden talents in the card room, library, and craft studio.  Other facilities include the wellness centre, gym, two swimming pools and a range of retail shops, perfect for days at sea.

WEDNESDAY  Depart Kettlewell’s yard for our journey to Newcastle upon Tyne.

Take time to visit Discovery Point and board Captain Scott’s ship RRS Discovery where you will follow in the footsteps of him and his crew, see how they lived, what they ate, witness their hardships and triumphs on their heroic exploration of Antarctica, maybe visit the V & A Museum of Design, enjoy a spot of retail therapy or just sit and watch the world go by.

FRIDAY  At sea cruising make the most of what the ship has to offer from the pools & hot tubs. Work off some of those extra calories in the gym and wellness centre.  Try the casino out or the crafting studio.  Alternatively, just relax with a good book and a cocktail.

Olden the southernmost of the three short branches at the inner end of Nordfjord terminates in Olden.  The charming village sits amongst tidy, well-kept farms on gently sloping, fertile hillsides, which then rise steeply into thickly wooded and rugged peaks.  From the village the beautiful Oldendalen Valley runs between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Briksdal Glacier is one of the more accessible arms of the Jostedalsbreen.  The creeping pitted tentacle of ice features in optional excursions from Olden together with glorious waterfalls, glacier fed rivers and wonderful mountain lakes.

Flam Surrounded by towering mountains the tiny village of Flåm, with some 500 inhabitants, nestles at the head of Aurlandsfjord, the innermost arm of the mighty Sognefjord.  Its popularity as a tourist destination began in the late 19th century with the arrival of steamships carrying English and German passengers including Europe’s royals attracted by the salmon fishing in the Flåm River.  Today’s visitors are drawn to Flåm for a chance to ride on one of the world’s steepest and most spectacular railways.  A masterpiece of engineering, Flåm Railway twists and turns through the steep sided Flåm Valley amidst some of Norway’s most breathtaking mountain scenery.

Bergen Known as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’, Bergen is Norway’s second largest city.  Yet with a population of less than a quarter of a million, it has the feel of a small town. It is beautifully sited against a backdrop of seven mountains and the funicular ride to the summit of Mount Fløien affords wonderful panoramic views of Bergen and Norway’s attractive coastline.  Overlooking the harbour the colourful Bryggen wharf is the face of Bergen.  The characteristic wooden gabled buildings were once the home and offices of Hanseatic merchants but today house shops selling crafts and traditional souvenirs.

Nestled on the shores of the mighty Hardangerfjord, Ulvik captivates visitors with its serene beauty and rich cultural heritage.  Explore historic churches, hike scenic trails, and indulge in local delicacies like the famous Ulvik cider, all while surrounded by breathtaking Norwegian landscapes.
