Hi, We sailed to the Fjords in May 2008 on Queen Victoria and the sea was like a millpond the whole trip. The sun shone every day and the temperatures were in the 70's. We were able to use the pool and our warm weather clothing remained in our cases. We were led to believe that we were extremely lucky to have such good weather. I'm sure you'll have a lovely cruise, rain or shine, as it's a beautiful part of the world and the scenery is just amazing. Happy cruising - Jan .

It can vary. Last July we went t the fjords and the journey through the North Sea was rough. The Captain told us that this was expected so before I went to bed I took 2 Stugeron tablets. I woke in the night and it still felt rough so I took another. Then before I got up I took 1 more. Then I was fine. We went and had breakfast and that was ok. It eventually died down after lunch. The Captain postponed the scheduled Gala evening as some people had felt ill. The weather then cleared up and we had good sun for about 4 of our 7 nights. The journey back through the North Sea was fine, no problems at all. I think the best thing is to be prepared.

We have crossed the North Sea five times in the past few years and have always been lucky with the sea conditions (it has rained a couple of times). However as Mr/Ms Freemantle advises, take the Stugeron, BEFORE you get into rough weather. Once in the fjords the water is very calm. You'll have a lovely time. Take either lots of film or storage device for your digital pictures.

I am finding that a lot of my new customers are giving cruise a taste because of the hassles flying, big queues, over the top security, scan this, scan that and then hanging around for 2 hours for your flight, and that’s if it is not delayed. Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...
