Experience the Christmas spirit in


During the month of December Kristiansand will be entirely in the Christmas spirit. The picturesque harbour town is decorated with Christmas lights, and during the week you can stroll around the Scandinavian Christmas market.

Welcome on board!

… to the MS Romantika. We offer a unique cruise experience on the most comfortable and luxurious passenger ship in the Netherlands! Depart from the harbour and enjoy the view over the Wadden Sea. When night has fallen, dine and soak up the ambience in one of our restaurants. You can shop at a duty-free rate, with a choice from our wide range of fashion, cosmetics and much more. In addition, you can enjoy the many facilities on board, before you arrive in Norway after a good night’s sleep in your own cabin. Book your mini cruise now and discover the facilities on board the MS Romantika!

Kristiansand in the ‘Norwegian Riviera’

Kristiansand is located in the south of Norway, right by the sea. The largest city in the south of the country. It’s an illustrious example of the charm of the southern Norwegian coastal region: an atmospheric port city with hip local boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Take a beautiful hike through the Norwegian nature only a stone’s throw away from the city centre. There is a reason why Kristiansand is holiday destination number 1 for the Norwegians themselves!

Christmas in Kristiansand

During the winter months Kristiansand is a magical destination when it comes to cosiness and Christmas spirit. In the city center there is a large Scandinavian Christmas market with all kinds of stalls selling traditional handmade products, Norwegian sweets, and more. Cozy lights have been installed everywhere, there is an ice skating rink on the main square, and with a bit of luck there is even snow to complete the picture!
