Hi beeton75, I've sailed on Ryndam before to the Fjords, got an absolute bargain last May sailing from Southampton. I think one of my highlights was visting Alesund, I really didnt know much about the place but was pleasantly surprised. The history and architecture is incredible, its a great plce just to walk around. I would recommend visiting the Sunnmore outdoor museum while you're there.

 

You must also dine in the pinnacle grill on Ryndam, it was out of this world! You have to make a reservation though, do this early on in your cruise.

 

Hope you have a fab time!

I've done Bergen (twice), Ålesund, and Geiranger.  I wrote about them all in my blog which has recently been mentioned.  You can click each link to go to the relevant post.

 

I absolutely loved Bergen when the weather was great, and in Geiranger the RIB safari was fantastic.  Click the appropriate links to read more! :)

 

Have a fabulous cruise!

Good job I scrolled down, I was hoping dst87 would mention his blog.

 

I did the fjords many years ago and will be refreshing my knowledge later this year with Celebrity.

 

Geiranger is very attractive the main plus being the sail up the fjord. For a change I have booked a local bus tour to take in the surrounding mountains and hopefully some scenic photography.

 

Here is the company link...

My third visit to Norway is in a few weeks time. We had a dry day in Bergen the first time, the second time was wet so I know what to expect.

If you like fish do go to the fish market for a fresh salmon roll they are mouth watering unlike the salmon we get in the UK.

I have visited the Norwegian Fjords twice and will be going again this August. 

It is wonderfully relaxing and so beautiful.

 

If you get chance visit a Glacier also Bergen is lovely and they have a interesting tour on a land train from the town centre that is well worth trying.

 

Promise you will want to go again.
