Hi Welcome to the boards firstly!
The cruise on the July 4th to the North Cape is amazing, I did the same trip in June last year and it was one of the best cruises I have done, it is so much better than the normal fjord trip that SB does as the best scenery by far is north of the Artic Circle, the scenery is fantastic, especially the sail up which sails inside the fjords, rather than open sea which you do on the way back down.
Standing up on deck at Midnight in sunshine is a great experience, which is even stranger when ski boats with water skiers behind them are along side the ship!!
The Lofoten Isles are magical and well worth a visit and the fjord that you visit after them is one of the most spectacular places I have been too and was worth the trip alone.
The Sea days back down are very relaxing with a fair amount going on, not as scenic as the way up, but a nice way to chill out and relax.
I could not recommend the cruise highly enough and I love hot sunshine cruises.
Fire away with any other questions you may have
