  1. I keep reading about how expensive Norway is. Does this include private excursions? Or just primarily food and shopping?
  2. Thank you! The current estimated plan is to spend 2.5 days in Amsterdam before the cruise and 2 full days in Copenhagen after the sailing, making for a solid 14-15 day trip.
  3. I'm sure it's lovely, but Kristiansand sounds like it might be weak spot and best option to stay onboard out of the others. Or in my case, it will likely mean no planned excursion, but just a simple walk about the town for some sights and culture.
  4. What's great about that is that you can always choose which port to skip and make it your own sea day. I'd err on the side of too many ports vs. too few.
  5. No, the 9-night Norse Legends itinerary listed in my first post.
  6. We are booked! Thanks for sharing your opinions.
  7. We just booked it! Thanks to all for the feedback.
  8. I looked at that itinerary, but I didn't want to miss Geiranger, most couldn't swing a 14-day cruise, and it would be even more difficult to accommodate our large group on the smaller Rotterdam.
  9. I posed this question in the Northern Europe Ports forum, but thought I would see if the trusted HAL patrons had any input. I am currently considering the following 9-night Norway itinerary and was wondering how this fare compares to other Norwegian fjord itineraries. I understand that a journey to the Arctic Circle is ideal, but I don't think we have the time to devote to that cruise at this point (perhaps in the future, though!). Are there any duds or winners among the ports? Amsterdam Flam Sognefjord Bergen Molde Geiranger Geirangerfjord Stavanger Kristiansand Oslo Copenhagen I was immediately attracted to the itinerary because of the different start and end cities. I know Amsterdam is wonderful but don’t know much about Copenhagen or the ports in between. Is this itinerary a 'winner'? Thanks in advance for your input!
  10. I’m wondering if the VB staterooms aft on deck 4 are desirable. I like the idea of the larger balcony but am worried about increased movement at the aft and possible noise from the galley below. Anybody have any experience with these staterooms?
  11. Question: when it says cruising the Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord on the cruise itinerary the same day as the ship's in port, when does it actually do the scenic cruising? Before? After? I suppose it's worth an early rise on those days?
  12. I generally find them to have good customer support. I would try calling, not emailing.
