We've been to both the Fjords and the Baltic and the weather has been comparative if not better than the UK at that time of year. However, where the weather is concerned there's no guarantees.

Hi I have also booked on the Ventura to the caribbean in December next year. The Fjords is fantastic in JUNE ITS THE BEST TIME TO GO the scenery is awesome. Truthfully speaking I never fancied the fjord cruise, it took a few years for my husband to convince me to go, but it was one of the best cruises for scenery I have been on. The baltic at this time of the year is exceptional too, but sometimes going up north coast of uk is as bad as the BAY OF BISCAY........ dont let that put you off. The weather in June is usually perfect for the fjord cruise nearly all cruiselines go this time of year, but of course its not guaranteed, as the weather is so unpredictable these days.

Hi i was on a cruise last year to the fjords in norway on the queen mary 2. the weather was quite mad as some days you could get a sun tan and other days it rained a lot it was in june we went,so i would take a brolly and rain coat ,also it is really expensive there when you go ashore, even a key ring was 10 euros, but i have to say it was worth it as the views and scenery was stunning to say the least. hope you have a great trip o the queen mary is out of this world.

Hi, I cruised to the Fjords in June this year. The weather was absolutely brilliant, except for one overcast day, including some rain. However, there are no guarantees, so if you do go take an umbrella just in case. The scenery however is stunning. If you like to see natural beauty, then the fjords are definitely the place.

MUSICAS PORTS OF CALL.

By Nicola Milligan

Last time I told you all about the ship so this week we will talk about the reason we actually chose this cruise, it’s itinerary. I have been to Venice a few times now but the sail away never loses it’s excitement for me. When standing on deck I still get goose bumps as this massive ship glides slowly past all the major sights of this charming city. So close you can see into windows and see the faces of the lovers sailing on the romantic Gondola rides. It is unbelievable at how c...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...
