Fantastic choice of holiday! Fjords absolutely beautiful and we loved the ship. We have been twice; in mid June 2004 we had huge amounts of rain, thick cloud, sunshine and snow. 1st week June last year it was boiling hot all week and I lived in shorts for excursions. So in summary you can get 4 seasons in one day. I suggest you get up very early every morning when in port as the best times are often as sail into port (lots of 3-4am but it's so worth it) but it is very cold then - fleece, hat, gloves if go outside. Good waterproofs and shorts/T shirts for when it's really hot. It's very unpredicatable, so layers to take on/off. You will have a brilliant time. We think Norway is the best country in the world - stunningly beautiful even in bad weather, but amazing when it's sunny. Enjoy.

The weather is very unpredictable in this area, most cruise ships go june july time as on average the weather is more pleasant, coldish but sunny. It has some magnificient scenery, in fact second only to alaska for scenery, in my opinio.

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

 Any one who has followed my Blog over the years knows that my favourite type of cruising is river cruising. I did my first river cruise about 6 years ago, the first of many, and I have never looked back. It ticks all the boxes for me, small ships, friendly staff and passengers, fabulous scenery all day every day, and being docked right in the centre of which ever city you are visiting so no long transfers, not to mention fabulous food!I just find that I enjoy these cruises so much more...
