Be prepared for almost anything. The weather can change quickly from warm sunshine to heavy rain. The best way to dress is in layers with plenty of waterproofing. The scenery will more than make up for any poor weather for it is fabulous.

I was on Oriana for a week's cruise last July. We had quite stormy weather going up the North Sea and then in Bergen, our first stop, it was overcast but the sun broke through occasionally. For the rest of the week the weather vastly improved until it became hot and sunny. So yes, take layers, an umbrella, fleece and sun tan lotion!

Hi Nick, it depends how far north your cruise goes. We had temperatures of 29 degress in Alesund in June last year and -3 in Svalbard. When we went to the North Cape in July it was warm enough to be without coat at midnight but last year in June it snowed! Apparently it rains a lot in Bergen, but we have always had a good day there. Remember that you have to take into account the speed of the ship which adds to the wind chill on deck, so warm, wind proof and water proof is a good idea, just in case - you probably won't need them. Norway is magnificent, I hope you have a wonderful time. Jude.

As said in other replies, be prepared for all weathers. we did our 1st ever cruise last june to the fjords. we went 8th june.. it was beautiful sailing across the north sea, blue sky and sun.. we even made it into the swimming pool. but when we hit norway it was rain and drizzle most of the time... but with all the rain the waterfall were so great to look at. the cruise that went a few week before norway had very hot and sunny weather... so we will be going back again and maybe we will get lucky and have the sun.

We went to this cruise itinerary (Norway and the North Cape) last July (end June/beginning July) - the weather is unpredicatable ; you can expect everything - when we went to the North Cape it was freezing !!! Very cold indeed!! But in other places such as Tromso, Bergen, Alesund it was a bit cold but fine. You have to be prepared to have thin layers of clothing and a windproof jacket and you will be fine.....what a great cruise .....surely recommended.....will repeat it for sure...such amazing scenery and ambiance.

By Camilla Edwards

Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit. One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day. The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
