Leake - Answered a Question by Cleminson (13 Oct 08 13:48)

There are many drivers with either taxis or mini-buses waiting outside the cruise terminal gates for the cruise passengers to take a tour to the local sites. Some will offer a set tour while others will tailor make a tour to cover your perferred options. The price of the tour will always come down in price if you haggle. Remember if you opt for a mni-bus tour the driver won't leave until it is full. I have been on both indepedent tours and those often on the quayside and without doubt the latter are much cheaper and just as good. The only time I won't use the local options is when there is a large deal of travelling involved, as you need to be back on the ship before departure and none of the islands you mentioned fit into this category. Just a word of caution don't visit too many sites in one island most of the islands have very similar excursions, (forts, rum distilleries, botanical gardens) so you can do similar things later on. Most islands are safe, if your driver is confident to take you to these attractions you are unlikely to encounter any problems.

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 ...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
