Instead of docking two nights in Akureyri, the Ocean Diamond will now spend one night anchored off Grimsey, a tiny island about 25 miles north of the Icelandic mainland. Just above the Arctic Circle, Grimsey is nearly uninhabited (pop. 86) but boasts plenty of fantastic bird life.
And please note that we are no longer offering the “On the Trail of the Vikings” route. Those time slots are being filled with more “Iceland Circumnavigation” departures, but we’ve added a twist — an extra day in Reykjavik. You can read more details here.
Our grand finale for the 2017 season is a new version of “Northern Lights and Whales” itinerary which features a cruise up Iceland’s west coast on the Ocean Diamond followed by a road trip across southern Iceland. There’s still availability on this 6-day/7-night combination trip. Check out the new itinerary here.
