Ocean Princess

August 2015 - Ocean Princess to Europe - Northern Europe

Norwegian Fjords cruise

The fjords are not as high and as spectacular as in Alaska because in Norway, fjords are defined as a waterways cut out by glaciers. Some of them are only a few hundred feet high. Too many ports of call. At least 3 of them can be changed to sea days because there was nothing to see in those ports. Most seasoned cruisers prefer sea days because there are more event programs and the cruising is more relaxing. In one port day, it was Sunday. Over 90% of the stores were closed. The visit was wasted.

The events scheduling at sea days have many time conflicts. They were very poorly scheduled.

The matre'd and head waiter in dining were not friendly, never introduced them to us. 

In summary, it is not worth spending the time and airfare to fly to Norway to see these fjords, except Flaam. You'll be much better to go to Alaska unless you run out of places to go, like me
