Hi you mention that you are going to Fjords on 13th July. Are you by chance going on the Grand Princess? We are on that ship and we have the same surname as you. Co-incidence or what. If you get any info re: trips other than the ships own, perhaps we could pool info. E-mail address is elb29@uk2.net. Hope to hear from you.

We went in May 2007 and were very lucky having sunny, warm days all the time, however the locals will tell you it can be changeable throughout the summer season much the same as UK and it is better to have some warm clothing for the excursions into the mountains, and light wet weather gear for the shore trips and transfers. If it is a cruise you are on then the ship's interior are almost always air conditioned and dress codes dictate what is most suitable.

Been in June, weather really good, cool at night.You need Fleeces for excursions and jackets (male and female) at night! You can get a tan even that far north! So take some summer clothes as well ! You will have a wonderful time, take plenty of film! Scenery spectacular.

We went a couple of years ago also in July and although it wasn't cold it was a bit damp at times!!! Looking at the photos I had cropped trousers with t shirt and micro fleece on and sometimes I was carrying the fleece! We just took layers with us and peeled off when we could...I also took a lightweight cagoule which folded up really small and did get worn!

We went to the norwegian fjords and iceland last june on the grand princess - and were very surprised how good the weather was - most days we wore just t shirts and jeans or cut off's - but did take a fleece or light jacket with us - it is best to dress in layers - and a cagoule is a good idea - also can be a bit chilly on board at night time. good walking shoes are also a necessity if you want to walk to the glaciers or waterfalls.grand princess fantastic - sure you will have a superb time.

It Is an going problem, hygiene on board! And something I hate people not washing hands, on a ship this can cause huge problems, having recently come back from a Celebrity Cruise, I loved the fact they have staff working to make sure you do the basic things! In this day and age it is a sad problem for basic hygiene!It is not something you like to talk about, but were a bunch of germ-laden conveyors of infectious diseases. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

Norwegian Cruise Line to Add ...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
