London, United Kingdom:
Through the Tower Bridge to the Top of Norway and Around the Corner to Copenhagen

By Corey Sandler, Destination Consultant Silversea Cruises

We’ve come to our third loop of northern Europe this season on Silver Wind.

We entered the Thames Estuary about noontime and made our way up the river, passing through the London Tower Bridge in early evening to our dock alongside HMS Belfast across from the Tower of London.

In doing so we completed our round-trip from the U.K. to France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway without once having to enter an airport. That is among the many charms of sea travel.

Safe travels to guests leaving us here in London.

We’re off on a cruise that will enter into the North Sea and up the west coast of Norway to its top at Nordkapp. Then we’ll turn back to the bottom of Norway and around the corner to Copenhagen, Denmark.

Here’s our plan:
