It is the best time of the year to go Late May June and early July, the weather is generally good around this time hence most cruise ships go there that time of the year. Weather is unpredictable though, I went early June in 1997 and the scenery was spectacular, even if its cold the scenery is the same.

It depends how far north the cruise goes. Bergen, Olden and Geiranger should be quite mild. Tromso will still be quite cold and Spitzbergen still below freezing. We sailed in June this year and I suggest clothes in layers and something windproof for on deck. Don't forget the sunscreen and the binoculars.

We did a similar cruise on Oriana in June a few years ago. During the fortnight I wore everything from bikini to fur coat and boots, so go prepared for everything! Incidentally, we have cruised many times and this trip is among my favourites, Have fun! Barbara.

Has anyone been to Norway and Fjords in late August - what kind of weather can we reasonably expect? Warm enough to sit outside on deck and use the pools, or too cold for that?

Costa Concordia Dismantlin...

By Sam Smith

The Costa Concordia tragedy seems like so long ago now so I was surprised to hear that the dismantling and recycling of the infamous cruise liner has only just been completed in Italy, marking the official end to final phase of what is considered the largest maritime salvage job in history.I never really thought about what a massive job the whole process has been, the salvage operation took 2 years and the dismantling a further 3 years.The consortium responsible for the Costa Concordias disma...

Your River Cruise Questions An...

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...
