  1. Just to prepare you it was a nightmare. Was a very hot day we had to wait for hours in hot marquee at White Bat until processed into buses that took us down the road and loaded onto big ferries. It took many hours and then we sat in the harbour even longer until 11pm so didn't even get the sail away feeling The cruise itself was wonderful
  2. Thanks Joe, I have pasted it over there. In the meantime, has any of our UK friends used the online company holiday direction? They replied all good to book with them but we need to put their address on the booking. Cheers
  3. We are wanting to do a cruise to Norway from Southampton. Prices for us here Princess Australia approx eg Balcony $4200 AUD pp, promotion with $160 usd obc(say $80 each) and ezair $600aud per cabin air credit so $300 each (has to be who they choose). I am thinking it better to book a UK website I found it is equivalent of $3200 pp. Thats $2000 cheaper for both so even accounting for the obc air credit. Is there any Aussies out there who have booked with a Uk company? Thanks muchly.

  5. Thanks Grandma! I will look at the Blue Puffin.I am really excited about the Lofoten Islands too! Does that tour you mention there take in a lot of scenery too, rather than a boat trip?
  6. Ok everyone thanks for the excellent forum! Just about to decide on this cruise, but a tad worried it doesnt go to Geiranger. Please review and say if you think we should find alternate one.

  7. Hi, I have seen somewhereon the forum that there's restrictions for the fjords in the future. Do you know when and which ships are exempt? Would I know purely by itinerary which ships are permitted into the smaller fjords, or is there some sort of list or permit they need?
  8. Thanks Mic, so much to think about! There were some good itineraries for Island and Crown princess but I thought Island was smaller so not too many people (eg we like Radiance OTS much better than Voyager with RCI) Also HAL gave great talks when we did Alaska whereas P and O and Carnival didn't make mention of any landmarks or wildlife the last few cruises we did.
  9. Would a B2B 14 plus 16 night Norway then Baltic be too much? Some great packages lately for 2020. Looking at Princess ( Island) or NCL balcony entry grade. I wonder which of these cabins more space and whch works better for shore tours and tenders? I have been trying to research the cabin sizes but they vary.
  10. Mic how would you compare princess to NCL? One of the online companys have great packages with flights, hotels stays and transfers with the mainstream cruiselines. So many to choose from. I really want to see Norway Coast and Lofoten Islands and was thinking a medium sized, well organised (for tenders) ship that was more affordable and comfortable than Hurtigruten.
  11. There is some unbelievable prices for packages to Northern Europe with mSC and Norwegian. Does anyone have experience with them,?
  12. One thing we Aussies definitely inherited from the Brits!
  13. Does anyone know which cruise lines mighthave kettles in the cabins?
