Northern Lights Singles Cruise
4 Ports in Norway - Princess Cruises - From England
October 15 to 27, 2020

Seeing the northern lights, also known as aurora borealis, are amazing to see due to the surreal way light moves in waves of green color across the nighttime sky. The Northern Lights is a magical experience and can only be seen above the magnetic pole of the northern hemisphere. The Lights appear to those on the ground in different forms: a swirl of colors dancing through the sky, rays of light reaching up into space or a giant fissure stretching across the sky. The lights are strongest right beneath the auroral ovals in northern Norway, which makes it the perfect destination for our Northern Lights singles cruise.
