I will be on the Princess Norweigian fjords cruise making a stop in Bergen. Does Princess run a shuttle into the center of town? Or is it best to take one of the tours?

I didn't sail the fjords on Princess, but on our sailing, all of the ships docked in the same area, which is within easy walking distance of the fish market. You pass by the Bryggen historic area and the funicular on your left, so I would suggest walking anyway since those are places that you will likely visit during your day in Bergen. Bergen is a great port that is very easy to do on your own, so I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Have a great trip,
Donna

I'm Norwegian, and my wife is actually from Bergen. Depending on the wheather, I would do it on my own. Walk into the centre, take the funicular up to Fl°ien and enjoy. Much cheaper and much more fun than a "tour"!

Good lucki!

There is a tour bus which departs from the fish market (short walk from the ship) which offers a tour called "Bergen in a Nutshell" - a lovely tour with all the main sights plus a trip in the cable car included. We can thoroughly recommend this - it drops back in the centre for shopping etc and is an easy stroll back to the ship. BTW Beware prices in Norway - people think Britain is expensive, wait till you see Norway's!

You can walk to the funiculair in Bergen (or take a city-bus near the cruiseterminal) and have a great view from the top of the mountain. http://www.floibanen.no/default.asp
Near fishmarket there is a small touristictram that tours around the city for one hour.
