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.

Last week I sailed on the newly rejuvenated Independence of the Seas.

By George Davison

George Davison's blog

Are Thomson (sorry Marella Cruises, bad habit) the best kept secret in cruising?You probably read that question, as I did typing it, with a confused look on your face. Marella Cruises, the best kept secret in cruising, surely not! For most people when you say Thomson or Marella Cruises, and ask them what they think of them, their reaction is often one of displeasure and statements of oh I would never cruise with them or only if I have to. But why?I think for a lot of people, the image they...

FUNICULAR FUN IN BERGEN!

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

So on our recent Fjords cruise on Balmoral myself and Holly decided that having splashed out, quite literally, on the Rib Adventure in Eidfjord that we would just do our own thing in Bergen, get off the ship and wander around, however, just outside the cruise terminal we happened upon a Hop On Hop Off Bus Stop and decided that we would have a tour round Bergen on that, covering more ground. The tour takes around an hour and you get a good taste of the city, Norway’s second largest, all ...
