We sailed with Fred olsen from Dover to the Fjords on the Braemar we had a great cruise with an outside cabin ,excellent food and service but the icing on the cake was parking the car 50 yds from the ship at the cruise terminal.

We sailed from Southampton in May 2008 on Queen Victoria. Highly recommended, great food, interesting ports of call, brilliant weather and amazing scenery. Cunard offer cruises to the Fjords in May and June 2009 departing from Southampton. Happy cruising - Jan .

Cunard, P&O & Princess have many cruises from Southampton to the Fjords ranging from 7 to 14 days. The best accommodation is a suite with a butler but this depends how deep your pockets are. All cabins of any grade are ensuite, airconditioned with fridge, safe box etc. There is no "best deck", it depends if you want to be close to anything. If you suffer from sea sickness go for a cabin midships and low down. Avoid being above or below night club or late night bars if you want quiet. Look on the websites and send for the brochures, then when you have some ideas of what you want, phone the freephone no at the top of this page.

It depends what you want. If you want opulence and a lot of people then Cunard are probably a good choice, but big ships can't get into small ports so you may have a couple of ports at anchor and tendered in. Fred Olsen's ships are a bit smaller and have a reputation for friendliness. We choose Page & Moy and Ocean Majesty for Norway as they go to lovely ports, usually are able to berth and the staff and crew are fantastic. Obviously small ships have their limitations, but we find that the 'house party' atmosphere more than makes up for a lack of 'freedom' dining. You'd be amongst the younger end of the guest list, but that's not a bad thing. She sails from Harwich.

We went with P&O to the Fjords last July, on Oriana sailing from Southampton, which would be nearer for you than Dover. It was a great cruise. We arrived at the port (we had booked parking with CPS), drew up, the car people were there to take our car, the porters took our luggage and we were on board enjoying lunch within 30 mins. As far as accommodation, it really depends, as someone else has said, on what your budged is. We were lucky enough to have a minisuite which was fantastic. We would recommend having a balcony if you are able. We got up early and sat out there while we were sailing into one of the fjords - magic. We had room service breakfast out there too. Whatever you decide have a great time.

The world busiest cruise ports.

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

With 2016 coming to a close, and no doubt another recording breaking cruise year I though I would do a bit of research into the world busiest cruise ports and get some insight into just how many passengers these hubs handle. To be honest the numbers are massive!!I don’t think the number 1 spot will shock many, but the Port of Miami welcomed over 5 million cruise passengers. As a major gateway to the Caribbean and the Bahamas, with countless ship based there year round. Transport links w...

The Cuban Revelation!

By Freddie Moser

No I don’t mean Cuban Revolution………Cuba – One of the most enigmatic places on the planet, is suddenly becoming a rather popular tourist hot-spot, but more importantly a winning cruise destination, a revelation, one might say……..Since the recent talks of a reconciliation between Cuba and the USA, the country has now become a new attraction for many a nationality.Of course here in the UK we have been holidaying in Cuba for years, and although it’s...
