Unlikely to be tee shirt weather. When we went in June we had snow.

We were there last July and we had some days that were overcast and we needed jumpers but we also had days where we needed t shirts and suntan lotion. So be prepared for all eventualities.

We went in September and had fabulous weather, only needed a warm woolie or coat when we had outside on deck sight seeing stops...but I think we were very lucky.....take something for all eventualities....Have a great time.

It depends how far north you go. Last June we had temperatures of 25 degrees in Alesund. It was warm enough to sit on deck in short sleeves until we were north of the Arctic Circle, by which time a jacket was needed. It snowed at the North Cape. There was a lot of snow still around in Svalbard and it was quite cold. By the time we got to Tromso on the way back it was warm again.

GOOD SHOES!! a warm sweather and a wind jacket will do. Norway can have 4 seasons in one day. So bring what you really need and if you think you might need it then dont take it. If you are going up North to Honningsvaag/Northcape I was there in august for a weekend trip from Oslo it was around 20 degrees that weekend but it can change rapidly. So if you have a wind jacket and a good woll sweather bring it. That is more then plenty. BUT GOOD SHOES. Welcome to my country. Caroline.

We sailed into Oslo 6am on a clear but chilly morning in early May 2007 and the temp reached 16degrees by lunch time and sunny. We had been told by friends that we would be lucky to get into Flam as the Fjord is narrow and can ice up,I sat outside on the Balcony in Pajamas and a dressing gown as we glided into the fjord in the twilight of the Morning with cloud hanging lke sleepy pillows arround us taking pictures as we silently navigated through and had experienced how peacful our 70,000 ton ship could be - pure magic.We had a great trip on the train and sat in sunshine at Voss that summed up our Holiday - Yes a waterproof jacket Alesun children are born with umbrellas we were told - so it does rain and it can get chilly, so jumpers and dont expect to buy anything while you are there as its dreadfuly expensive -- but hey your on holiday -- good luck -- Laurence .

I would take layers, lightweight long trousers, waterproof over trousers a waterproof jacket and some good walking shoes. We went in June 2007 and had the most amazing weather. We had sunshine everyday and it was 25 degrees in Bergen! They had to bring out the T shirt rail on Aurora as no one was prepared for the heatwave! Have a wonderful trip, it is a truly stunning area to visit.

Death on the Nile or is it Lif...

By Alana Mills

Did you know that 10 Years ago around 60,000 British Holidays makers took a Nile cruise compared to approximately 4000 in 2016. That is a staggering decline in anyones books and despite the troubles in Egypt a decline that no-one could have possibly anticipated.No one can deny that Egypt has had its troubles with the Egyptian revolution in 2011 leading to a coup and the leadership changing hands twice before the 2014 Leader General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi took power. There have been a number o...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
