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.

Anyone who knows me will know I like a good plan. I am super organised, well I like to think so. Often that leaves me so busy I can’t fit in any more plans and that is what has happened this year! So here are my plans for 2017… So far anyway!My year starts next month when I am off to New York with a few friends. We are going for St Patricks weekend so it is all very exciting and I can’t wait. I have my ESTA sorted, passport all ready and my dollars in my purse. I just...

What Is Your Number One Priori...

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So since finding out recently that I am going to become a dad for the first time (which I am probably foolishly ecstatic about), my priorities in life have taken something of a change of late!When I found out a couple of months ago, I started to look at my life. Where I was, what I have achieved, and what kind of future I wanted for my wife and imminent child.This little bit of soul searching has initially made me fixate at cash flow, which I’m sure is not unusual! So I have thrown myse...

Are cruise lines becoming sexist

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

Last week Aqua Expedition launched a new sensation but only for us ladies I’m afraid. They have come up with the idea of offering cruises just for ladies.They state……..‘With these cruises, women will have the chance to learn about new cultures and traditions whilst meeting new people who share the same excitement for adventure, whilst being able to enjoy a little bit of luxury at the same time.’Now forgive me for being a little lost with this fantastic opportunit...
