Clarke - Answered a Question by Elmore (31 Aug 08 20:35)

Not very helpful, but the weather is likely to be very variable! I cruised to the fjords at the end of August and it rained 6 out of 7 days, whereas a friend did the same trip the following year and had lovely weather. So a bit like at home I guess, layers and a waterproof!

We went in june this year and it rained most days of the week, but it was great to see the waterfalls in full flow. check out bbc world weather before packing it will give you a good idea of what to pack.

Thanks very much, we have been on a few Thomson cruises before and thoroughly enjoyed them so hopefully this will be just as good, if the weather is fine it will be a bonus, I am sure you will have a brilliant time.

Sex, drugs and ports of call. ...

Dean Michaelides's blog

I recently read an article from a former cruise ship employee. He was explaining that having sex, taking drugs and making friends in the onboard sex dungeon was a regular occurrence on board one Caribbean cruise liner.
