Do i need formal dress for dinner.
When are you going and where are you going to?
Oh come on! We are many things but not mind readers. Give us a teeny little clue and we will all do our best to help you---but the crystal ball has been mislaid just at present!
Sorry but when i filled in the form it ask where we were going so i thought this info would be passed on we are going to the norway to the fjords in september many thanks.
We'll be back from the fjords on the 31st august. i'll post a review. i'm an optimist, so i'm taking bikini and raincoat!!
You can expect plenty of rain, sometimes torrential (a bit like the UK at present!!) with temperatures around 12 - 15 c during the daytime. If it's early September then expect it to be a bit better than this. I suggest walking type of shoes/boots which can cope with water and dry out fairly quickly. Even if it isn't wet they are good for general walking in the countryside areas and tours up to glaciers etc! It depends what you want to do. Similarly, outer clothes should suit these conditions. A thermal fleece would be good for when out on deck as the speed of the ship can make the air feel quite cool. I'm not too sure about night time temperatures but the west coast of Norway does benefit from the Gulf Stream which may help a bit. Hope this helps.
I would dress in layers which you can easily remove(well, not all of them maybe!) because the weather can change quite quickly. You may set off on an excursion in damp chilly weather and then find it turns out to be a really hot day. Equally you may find as we did on the Flaam railway trip that a fine warm morning may have become snowy when you are on higher ground!It's fantastic cruising territory; have a wonderful time.Cynthia.
