Hi there, we went to Bergen last Feb 08 it was -6, the scenery is absolutley stunning, no high sided fjords, but the views of the mountains and the small villages near by will take your breath away. We really enjoyed it and look forward to going again.

Bergen is on the coast. There are some islands off the coast that you sail by and there are bridges across to the islands, one of which is quite low and larger ships cant go under.

Bergen is a lovely port. Unless mobility is a problem your ship should be in easy walking distance of the the town. If you are on the Bryggen side of the harbour its a lovely walk. There's a funicular up Mt Floyen with shops and cafe at the top station. It's usually crowded around the station but the view is fantastic. There are lots of paths for walking further up the mountain (easy walk at first) If you walk far enough there's a picnic area with a refreshment kiosk. The wild life is varied (red squirrels etc.) and there are several small lakes which are very pretty. If the weather is poor, there's a lovely aquarium opposite teh Bryggen.

But are they really all its made out to be or are we limiting our options by being loyal.Im going to focus on P&O because they are the most popular but a similar comparison could be made with other cru...

It has been over 10 years since I last visited Singapore, but my Mother in Law is a regular visitor. The main reason is to visit her nephew and family, but while they are at work she loves to go off and explore. During this visit, she was also treated to a lovely weekend in Bali!As I sat looking through the pictures and listening to the stories, I was amazed at how much Singapore has changed. So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...
