13-Day Jewels of Scandinavia - October 2-15, 2022


This knitting cruise visits six cities in four countries on this 13-day cruise sailing from Rotterdam to Amsterdam October 2-15, 2022. Cruise from the Netherlands to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Germany while being luxuriously pampered as you travel from one fabulous port to the next. While the ship is at sea, you can knit to your heart's content; in port, you will have the opportunity to shop for yarn and visit fiber-related places of interest. So we invite you to pack up your needles and come along for some fun. Life is short, and you deserve to make the most of it.



Northern Europe is home to many leading-edge designers and has some of the most outstanding yarn shopping opportunities in Europe. In addition, all of the countries visited on this cruise have rich knitting traditions.
