Iceland is one of the most popular destinations in 2017. After the success of our 2016 Icelandic cruise, we are extremely happy to offer this special voyage that features a complete circumnavigation of the island featuring some of the world’s most beautiful scenic cruising. This sailing also highlights many of the most important and seldom visited Icelandic ports. The ms Ocean Diamond is small enough to dock in remote ports while large enough to ensure all of our creature comforts are met, the best of both worlds. See pricing tab for shore excursion information and prices.
