    When you see the price of a coffee you may change your mind and dont even think about anything alcoholic unless you take out a new mortgage.

        I also note that Norway is 'not cheap', although I doubt I will be purchasing anything other than coffee coloured or red coloured liquid.

        Is there anything I've missed?


        Don't forget the swimming trunks. My little grandaughter swam for three hours in the outdoor pool on Vision Of Seas this month at Geiranger surrounded by snow covered peaks.

          We are off to the Fiords for the first time mid July, Stavanger, Alesund, Geiranger and Bergen.

          I note from the weather sites that July is the highest temperatures, but I can't get my head around the daytime onshore clothing.

          Will it be Train Spotting attire, Woolly Hat, Anorak, Sandals and Socks, or T Shirt and Trainers?
          Yep
          Even in the summer the evenings get chilly as you sail out of the fjords you will most likely want to spend a lot of time out on deck to take in the view

              You weren't entirely wrong Wilba as Norway it self is a Baltic State

              Sorry but Norway is not a Baltic State

              They are Lithuania,Latvia & Estonia

                Yes you are correct in the most common usage for the term.
                However there is also the Council of the Baltic Sea States which covers all those states who have a coastline on the Baltic sea, which of course includes Norway and many others.

                              We went to norway for 1st time 5 years ago(hae been back 3x since)in late june early july,did not take woolly hat with me. Being a little short of hair i was feeling the cold on top, so i bought a woolly hat in a local shop, well it was better than a woolly hat. The cost worked out about £12 the best £12 i ever spent,comming from scotland it can get blinken cold in winter ,i' ve worn it every winter since and it's been back to norway,its the warmest woolly bunnet i've ever had.

                                I had an umbrella and used it in Geiranger. It was tiping down and that was mid June. Also had a woolly hat but bought a locally made one as it was much warmer and much needed the further North we went.. On that trip I wore shorts in Bergan and Throndheim. Raincoat and brolly in Geiranger. Fleece type jacket in Tromso and very warm scarf and gloves. Thick thermal jacket in Spitsbergan. I suggest you take a bit of everything for all climates. Thermal underwear for the cold days and a pair of Speedo budgie smugglers for the warmer days at sea
