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.

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...
