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.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

Dawn Gardener's blog

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...
