I did this cruise two years ago, it was wonderful. The best way to see that various ports of call are to walk. There are one or two that needs transport then the ships tour guides are the best value. Have a lovely holida.

For Flam the absolute must trip is a journey on the Flam railway that takes about an hour each way and is through the most spectacular scenery you can imagine. It rises from sea level to over a 1000 feet and can be booked yourself from the station which is right next to where the cruise ships dock. For more info look on the web at the Flamsbana site. In Beregen best trip is to walk or take the shuttle bus to the funicular railway which takes you up to the top of the mountain (2 minute journey)that overlooks Bergen. We then walkwed down and through Bryggen and the fish market - the most scenic part of Bergen. Again simply find the Norway Tourist site and it gives chapter and verse what to do.

Cruised to the Fjords in May this year. The places visited are no more than villages with the exception of Bergen which is quite a sizeable city but anytime I've been there it has rained so hard couldn't get off the ship. The scenery is quite stunning, but each place looks like the other. There is really not a lot to do ashore, the FFlam railway is OK but expensive. This is not the place to shop (if you can find any). Hope the weather is kind to you. Good luc.

A Cruiser? Me Sir? No Sir?...

By Jodie Baldwin

My last blog was about my partner actually taking his first cruise . My blog today has been done by Mike who tells us about his first cruise experience. Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

Tell me what is on your Bucket List

By Lee Johnson

Over the last few years here at we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...
