Have been twice to the Fjords, both times with Fred Olsen. Very friendly and the smaller boats can get into smaller spectacular places like the Troll Fjord. Even Braemar can only just turn round in here. Food great , staff great and boat very comfortable. I am a fan of Fred Olsen cruises.

Our first cruise was Norway and we went all the way to North Cape. Very dramatic but desolate and there was still snow in parts at the end of June. The advantage of Norway is that there is always beautiful scenary to look at cruising in and out of the fiords. There are many cruise lines sailing to Norway from UK, P&O, Cunard, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Fred Olsen. We like P&O.

You can sail from Newcastle on Thomson Celebration or Thomson Spirit depending on which ship is being used. We went on the Celebration in June 2005 and had the most amazing trip. The North Sea was so calm and the cruise into the Fjords and up the coast to the North Cape was breathtaking. Service and food were both excellent. This next June we are doing it again, but this time taking four of our friends who haven't cruised before. We will be sailing from Southampton on the Grand Princes.

Our first cruise was to Norway and to the North Cape, we thoroughly enjoyed it, terrific scenery, breathtaking views. We sailed from England with Fred Olsen in July,we were lucky with the weather hot, but still snow on the high ground. As we left the small villages in Norway all the local folk, and their local band came to wave us off, the people are really friendly, acruise we would definately do again.

We've cruised to the North Cape and absolutely loved it. The year we went was abnormally hot, with temperatures up to 29C. If you go at the time of the midnight sun, you'll find it really amazing to have daylight through the night. We did the trip with Royal Caribbean and they were great. However, as with all cruises you need to choose the cruise line and ship that fits your PERSONAL NEEDS AND PREFERENCE.

We went with Huetegruten on their 'ferry' which sails fromBergen all the way up the west coast to Kirkens visiting lots of fiords (some VERY spectacular and narrow)and offshore islands. Excellent food and good excursions including the North Cape. Go!! Geoff & Gil.

Try Fred Olsen - they also have the advantage of sometimes sailing from smaller ports such as Newcastle or Edinburg.

We did that trip 10 years ago on Black Prince, and it was excellent in every way. Being a fairly small ship, we were able to go into tiny places and tie-up alongside; the scenery was fantastic; food and service likewise. The Norwegians are very friendly people, and in some places we caught a local bus, and had no problems at all getting around although we don't speak Norwegian. Norway is very expensive - we'd intended 'eating out' during our day in Bergen, but having seen the prices on the menus wewt back to Black Prince for lunch - but as it was moored nearby, it was no problem. Hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did. Eddi, Exeter.
