Norway Cruise Highlights

Norwegian fjords.

Nature buffs and adventure seekers can’t miss seeing the stunning Norwegian fjords during their cruise. Bergen is a great jumping-off point to see fjords like Hardangerfjord, the country’s second-largest fjord. UNESCO World Heritage Site Geirangerfjord is known as the “crown jewel” of the country’s fjords, contrasting steep waterfalls with snow-peaked mountain caps. Go slightly off-the-beaten path to neighboring Hjørundfjord, where activities like fjord fishing and kayaking will captivate you.

Art & History

Explore Oslo’s famous Viking Ship Museum and see three expertly preserved vessels. Spend a while at the Munch Museum, dedicated to the painter Edvard Munch, known best for his painting “The Scream.” In Bergen, Bryggens Museum is a mighty testament to life in the town before a devastating fire in 1955, where excavations uncovered beautiful reminders of everyday Norwegian life. Bergen is also home to its own art museum that uniquely preserves the homes of famous composers throughout history. Time travel at Sunnmøre Museum in Alesund, an open-air exhibit featuring preserved homes and boats dating back to medieval times.

Craft Breweries

Norway’s distilleries and craft microbrewing scene is rapidly growing in cities like Bergen and Alesund. After decades of mostly serving lagers, microbrewers around the country wanted to offer more variety for beer drinkers, so they started to brew their own IPAs, pale ales, and stouts. Ever since, Norway’s cities have brewed hundreds of their own unique drafts. Unwind after a day’s hike and try something new on the menu.

Featured Ports

Bergen, norway.

Rows of deep red, burnt orange, and white houses near Bryggen Wharf is one of the top sights in the city. Enjoy a romantic wharfside meal or a cozy coffee there before you visit Bryggens Museum or St. Mary’s Church. Ride a funicular rail to the summit of Mt. Fløyen for incredible panoramic views of the city below. Explore the surrounding fjords on an unforgettable kayaking or hiking adventure.

Alesund, Norway

On a Norway cruise, you’ll visit the picturesque town of Alesund, frequently cited as one of the country’s most beautiful places to visit. Spend a leisurely day exploring the Art Nouveau District. Hike up nearly 500 steps to Aksla Viewpoint and admire the stunning vistas of the archipelago and breathtaking fjords beyond. The town is also the gateway to Geirangerfjord, one of Norway’s most famous natural wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, nestled between imposing cliffs on all sides.

Oslo, Norway

Let Oslo’s metropolitan atmosphere energize you as you explore its opulent palaces and incredible museums. The capital of Norway is teeming with Viking history, from ships dating back to the 9th century at the Viking Museum to 17th-century art at the National Museum. Art lovers won’t want to miss seeing Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” in person. When you move on from historic wonders, grab a craft beer or sample local salmon at any of Oslo’s trendy eateries.

Norway Cruise Itineraries

Embark on an unforgettable cruise to Norway aboard Celebrity Silhouette or Celebrity Reflection. Sailing from May to August, our Norwegian fjord cruises last anywhere from seven nights to nine nights. Longer itineraries give you the chance to see towns like the mountainous Flam or the remote Geiranger. On a Northern Europe cruise, you’ll overnight in Oslo on the way to cities like Copenhagen, Bruges, and Paris, or visit the capital before venturing to Sweden and Finland.

Packing for a Norwegian Cruise requires thoughtful preparation to ensure comfort and enjoyment.

Firstly, layering is key in Norway’s variable climate, so pack lightweight, warm layers like fleece jackets, thermal wear, and waterproof outerwear.

Comfortable, sturdy footwear is essential for shore excursions and deck walks. Don’t forget binoculars for wildlife spotting and a camera to capture the fjords’ beauty.

For long summer days, bring sunglasses and sunscreen.

Finally, consider a reusable water bottle for hydration and eco-friendly travel. By packing these essentials, you’ll be well-prepared to fully enjoy the awe-inspiring experience of a Norwegian Fjord Cruise.

A Norwegian Fjord Cruise is an unforgettable journey into some of the world’s most stunning natural landscapes. Each cruise option offers a unique experience, from intimate yacht-like adventures to luxurious voyages.

There are many ways you can save money on cruises but the Norwegian Fjords are a more expensive destination to explore, so book in advance for the best prices.

With the right preparation and an adventurous spirit, you’re set for an extraordinary journey through Norway’s breathtaking fjords.

Norwegian Fjords Cruise: 32 Tips You NEED to Know

In June 2018 I took a cruise around the Norwegian Fjords with my lovely Mum. In this post, I’ll share with you the things I wish I knew before my first cruise to Norway. Including:

When to cruise to Norway What to pack on a Norwegian Fjords cruise What to do onboard What to do in: Bergen, Olden, Stavanger and Aldalsnes.

p&o britannia cruise ship norwegian fjords norway

When is the best time to cruise the Norwegian Fjords?

The Norwegian Fjords cruising season runs from May until September. The only cruise line that offers Norwegian Fjords cruises all year round is Hurtigruten. Peak time tends to be in July and August with this itinerary being particularly popular with families.

In the UK children are off school from mid-July until early September so if you can avoid travelling at this time I would, not only will it be busier but it’ll be significantly more expensive!

When is The Best Time to Cruise to Norway? – Season Price Guide

Norwegian Fjords tip #1

  • I would recommend cruising at the beginning or end of the summer season. You’ll get the best deals at this time and the ships won’t be too busy. May-June or September would be be my recommendation. You still have a good chance of some sunshine but more on that later in the post…

norwegian fjords cruise tips blue skies sunshine weather andalsnes

Norwegian Fjords tip #2

Be aware that if you travel in the summer, it will be light a lot of the time. Sleeping is never a problem for me, but it is a bit confusing when you have been out for dinner, watched the show, come out and it is still daylight! – Gaynor Le Teace (my mum)

It’s true! In some parts of Norway they even have a ‘midnight sun’. Cruise ship cabins usually have pretty thick curtains so I don’t have any trouble sleeping but if you are somebody who cannot tolerate even the smallest amount of light in the room when you sleep then you might want to consider an inside cabin.

norway norwegian fjords cruise sunset midnight sun over the ocean

What is the weather like on a Norwegian Fjords cruise?

The weather in Norway is unpredictable and very often wet. The weather in Summer SHOULD be dry and can even be pretty warm. We cruised in June and it rained every single day… However, I have a few friends who cruised two weeks earlier had glorious sunshine every day and temperatures reached 30c! (90f). I would not base your decision on when to go around the weather. It’s extremely unpredictable!

The weather means that you need to remember to bring the following things…

What to bring

Norwegian fjords tip #3.

  • Take sensible shoes, a waterproof jacket, jeans, jumpers (sweaters). As I mentioned above we had rain every single day. Annoyingly the UK was experiencing a heat wave at the time! A waterproof jacket/a coat is without a doubt the most important thing you should pack. I wore my red coat every single day.

norwegian fjords weather coat britannia msc orchestra

Norwegian Fjords tip #4

  • Make sure you pack some dresses/shorts! This one might seem a bit silly given what I said above but the weather can reach 30c (90f). It can also vary a lot between ports so just because you have one rainy day doesn’t mean it will rain for the entire cruise.

Norwegian Fjords tip #5

Pack some small binoculars – I forgot mine. Obviously didn’t pay enough attention to the holiday packing spreadsheet in my excitement! – Gaynor Le Teace (my mum)

The views are INCREDIBLE as you sail around the Norwegian Fjords. I don’t really use binoculars but mum likes to so if you’d like to spy on people as you go by it can be worth packing binoculars. A good camera with a zoom can also work the same way.

norwegian fjords sail away p&o britannia

Norwegian Fjords tip #6

  • Bring the best camera you have! (Or at least your phone). All of my photos were taken on my iPhone because quite frankly I have no idea how to use a decent DSLR camera. You’ll want to take SO many photos. Look at this!! It’s INCREDIBLE.

norway norwegian fjords cruise ship view

Norwegian Fjords tip #7

  • Bring your phone and use it. I usually say you should keep your phone in airplane mode when you are at sea. However, when cruising around the Norwegian Fjords you’re often close enough to land to be able to pick up 4G from land. If you are in doubt about how your phone will work at sea I have another post about that here: How do mobile phones work at sea? (If you’re American a mobile phone = a cell phone). I know we don’t go on cruises to spend all of our time on our phone but being able to send messages/emails/photos to friends and family back home is always a bonus.Mum mostly used it to send photos of me to my dad…

 What to do onboard

These tips are general to the whole of Norway. There are more specific tips about the ports that we visited at the end of this post.

Norwegian Fjords tip #8

Book a balcony cabin!

norwegian fjords balcony view girl norway cruise ship britannia

Norwegian Fjords tip #9

  • Make sure you book whatever tours you’d like to do as early as possible. We booked ours onboard and a lot of them were already sold out which limited our options. Ideally, you should book the tours before you travel. It’s usually possible to do this on the website of most cruise lines. If not try and book the tours on the first day to avoid disappointment!I am below looking very pleased with myself at the Briksdal glacier in Olden.

norwegian fjords cruise norway briksdal glacier

Norwegian Fjords tip #10

  • Be aware that a lot of things are closed on Sundays! If you are docking on a Sunday don’t assume that shops will be open. It’s always best to do your research and check before you cruise.

Norwegian Fjords tip #11

  • Look out for weird things in the souvenir shops… I managed to find a whale sausage!

norwegian fjords cruise tips reindeer moose sausage gift shop

Norwegian Fjords tip #12

Always get up early to see the sail in to port, the views are incredible. (Even if you have to wear the aforementioned jeans, jacket, jumper, hat etc. – Gaynor Le Teace (my mum)

Norwegian Fjords tip #13

  • Bring your quilt onto the balcony! (Duvet). I’m not kidding. If you can also make yourself a cup of tea that’ll make it even better! I mostly had to do this because I hadn’t planned for such cold weather so didn’t bring the right clothes. Hopefully by reading this post you won’t make the same mistake that I did! (I thought June would be okay!)

norwegian fjords cruise tips balcony quilt duvet girl cup of tea

Norwegian Fjords tip #14

Unless there is somewhere you particularly wish to visit, look at at the weather forecast before booking excursions..

It is rather a waste of money to book an expensive trip up a mountain or to see the Troll Wall when everything is shrouded in fog, and you can’t see anything anyway! When we got to the top of the funicular railway in Bergen this is the view that we were greeted with…

View of the fog in Bergen, Norwegian Fjords cruise, Funicular railway

This is what it was meant to look like!

norwegian fjord cruise

In the next section of this post, we talk about the ports of Bergen, Olden, Stavanger and Andalsnes.

Bergen cruise port tips

Norwegian fjords tip #15.

  • Take the funicular railway! The number one attraction in Bergen appears to be the funicular railway. It is a gentle stroll to the bottom of the railway, and easy to pay by credit card – no kroner needed. Approx £9.75 for two adults one way. Once at the top it is a lovely walk back down the hill on a tarmacked road, through the wooded hillside. No need to pay for an excursion!. We found out from a fellow passenger later that there is actually a lake ten minutes from top of the hill, may be worth a look if its a sunny day.

norwegian fjords cruise bergen funicular railway cable car prices norway

Norwegian Fjords tip #16

  • If you do take the funicular railway go later in the day. We went in the morning and couldn’t see a thing because of the fog! We could have been anywhere. If you are physically able to, make sure you walk back down. The path is a winding road and you’ll see some amazing sights along the way! It was really cool for us to be able to get below the clouds and see the ships.

view from funicular railway in bergen walk down cable car

Norwegian Fjords tip #17

  • Look out for the trees that have their own jumpers! I’m not kidding.

norwegian fjords trees jumpers bergen knitted sweaters

Norwegian Fjords tip #18

  • Be aware that you may sail away from Bergen quite early. I’m not too sure why they do this but a sail away of 3 pm can be quite standard. It’s probably just because this is the last port on the itinerary for cruise lines like P&O and Princess. The cruise line will let you know what time the ship is set to sail.

Stavanger Cruise Tips

Norwegian fjords tip #19.

  • Visit the old town. It is easy to wander around is and genuinely just a lovely place! There will be a lot of tourists here. I wonder what it would be like to live in one of these houses with thousands of tourists wandering up and down your street. No wonder they all have net curtains.

norwegian fjords stavanger cruise port norway old town

Norwegian Fjords tip #20

  • Visit the petroleum museum. Okay, this one is a little weird. I had no idea that there was a petroleum museum in Stavanger but SO many people have asked me if I went. They all seem to love it! It has a 4.5/5 star rating on trip advisor so must be something special…

Norwegian Fjords tip #21

  • Be careful when walking around the roads. Even in the newer part of town, the roads can be a little difficult. If you are in a wheelchair it may be a good idea to stick to the main streets and not venture up and down all of the little cobbled streets that I found myself wandering around.

norway norwegian fjords cobbled streets old town bergen

Norwegian Fjords tip #22

  • Check out the other ships. There are usually multiple cruise ships docked in Stavanger at the same time. Make sure you get out and have a peek at the other ships! This is always one of my favourite things to do in a port. We were docked beside the MSC Orchestra and the Viking Sun. (Bit ironic since it rained every day on this cruise).

norwegian fjords norway msc orchestra p&o britannia norway cruise ships girl red coat emma cruises

Norwegian Fjords tip #23

  • Wander around the lake at Stravanger park. There is a lovely little park not too far from the cruise port. It is easy to walk there and wandering around the lake is very pleasant. Even in the rain, it was lovely. The park is right beside a cathedral.

norwegian fjords norway stavanger cathedral

Olden Cruise Tips

Norwegian fjords tip #24.

  • Have your photo taken with a troll. Go on, you know you want too!

norwegian fjords cruise troll

Norwegian Fjords tip #25

  • Visit the Briksdal glacier. I would 100% recommend doing this. The glacier is SO COOL (mind the pun) and there are lots of lovely paths to walk around near it. There is even a couple of toilets here which I really appreciated. It takes around 45 minutes to get here from the cruise ship but you’ll get to see some amazing views on the way.

norwegian fjords stavanger briksdal glacier p&o britannia

Norwegian Fjords tip #26

  • Skip the Loen Skylift. We took the Loen Skylift and I honestly wouldn’t recommend it. The price of this is around £50 per person! (I know Norway is expensive but that is mad). The skylift only goes up and down every 30 minutes and 35 people fit in one skylift meaning you can’t really see anything on the way up or down. I really hate to be negative and tell people not to do things but I honestly just thought this was a waste of money. The views are really good but I don’t think £50 worth of good. Maybe it would have been better if it wasn’t so blooming cold!!

norwegian fjords norway cruise loen skylift

Norwegian Fjords tip #27

  • Take as many photos of the ship as you can! There is NO better backdrop than that of the Norwegian Fjords. Even in bad weather, the ships look amazing. I honestly think the clouds and fog add a little something which makes it seem mysterious?!

norwegian fjords norway p&o britannia

Norwegian Fjords tip #28

  • Do NOT miss the sail away! As we departed Olden a small cafe on the ship blasted out ‘I am sailing’ by Rod Stewart followed by ‘Time tooo…. say… goooddbyyyyyeee’ by Katherine Jenkins.  Don’t pretend you didn’t just sing that in your head. I did!

norwegian fjord cruise

Andalsnes Cruise Tips:

Norwegian fjords tip #29.

  • Take a gamble on the troll wall? I’m not TOO sure if this really counts as a tip but I would say think twice about booking a trip to the bottom of troll wall. If the weather is bad you won’t see a thing. I hadn’t ever looked up the troll wall before so I had no idea what I was meant to be seeing.

norwegian fjords norway andalsnes troll wall

Norwegian Fjords tip #30

  • Head UP the troll wall. I made some friends on this cruise and they told me that they had been UP the troll wall and had amazing views from up there. If I went again I would pick a tour that took you to the top of the wall whereas ours just took us to the bottom where we stared up at the clouds.

Other bonus tips!

Norwegian fjords tip #31.

Put a currency converter on your phone for Norwegian Kroner. Its pretty expensive, and you don’t want to get a nasty shock when you open your credit card bill! Do you really need a wooden troll or reindeer sausages? I think not… – Gaynor Le Teace (my mum)

Norwegian Fjords tip #32

  • Eat as much food as you can on the ship so that you don’t have to eat in port… Norway is really expensive and I have no interest in paying for food when I have an unlimited supply on the ship! Make sure you eat a big breakfast and you’ll be fine for a while. If you have kids though it may be worth bringing some snacks.

p&o britannia food lunch sandwich

My cruise onboard Britannia

This was my first P&O cruise and I was REALLY impressed with the food and service onboard. If you are cruising onboard Britannia make sure you check out this post. P&O Britannia: 8 free ‘must do’ activities.   Britannia is an amazing ship but she is HUGE and it can be difficult to make the most of your time onboard.

I also filmed a tour video when I was onboard and will be posting daily vlogs in each port.

As an Arctic wonder, Norway offers adventure, attractions and charm all year round.

If you visit the country in the summer, you'll avoid the chilly temperatures, you'll be able to witness the Midnight Sun and will find that more attractions are open. In winter, however, you'll be able to see a northern wonderland covered in a magical layer of snow, which you can enjoy by snow shoeing, skiing or snowboarding. Between late September and late March, it's dark from early afternoon until late morning, and this is the best time to see the Northern Lights.

No matter what season you decide to visit, just remember the Norwegian saying, "There's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes." While the climate between different areas of the country varies widely, the Norwegian winters are long and cold in general. If you wear the right clothes, though, you'll be just fine.

Jacksonville will get a second cruise ship when Norwegian Cruise Line joins Carnival

N orwegian Cruise Line is on its way to Jacksonville in 2025, giving cruise travelers boarding here a second option for their tropical voyages.

The JaxPort board unanimously approved an agreement Tuesday for a 2,394-passenger Norwegian Cruise Line ship that will offer seasonal sailings starting in November 2025 from Jacksonville to the Bahamas and the Eastern Caribbean. Some of the trips will be 11-day and 12-day voyages, adding a longer cruise option than exists today from Jacksonville.

"There's been a lot of buzz around town about this move, so let's get right to it," JaxPort CEO Eric Green said as he brought the agreement before the board at a special meeting.

The ship called the "Norwegian Gem" will depart from Jacksonville between November and April every year through 2028. It will use the same JaxPort cruise terminal as Carnival Cruise Line.

On the road: Where FDOT would spend billions in Jacksonville area

Talleyrand shift: Enstructure will become one of JaxPort's biggest tenants. Here's the cargo it will move.

More: JaxPort gets $13.7 million in relief money to offset pandemic-cost cruise business loses

Carnival Cruise Line has had a ship sailing out of Jacksonville since 2004, currently with the Elation ship to the Bahamas. Carnival will keep doing its year-round trips out of Jacksonville.

Green said Carnival is the cruise line "that got us to the dance" and will continue to be a mainstay of the city's cruise business.

"It was always a question of whether or not we could host two cruise lines at the same time, but we're able to do it," he said.

What does Norwegian bring to Jacksonville?

Norwegian , known for its colorful hull art , is one of the biggest cruise operators in the world with trips spanning the globe. Headquartered in Miami, Norwegian has used Port Canaveral, Miami and Tampa as its departure ports from Florida. Norwegian cruises also go to Key West. Jacksonville will become its latest homeport.

"Today marks a new milestone in the relationship between Norwegian Cruise Line and JaxPort," company president David J. Herrara said.

Norwegian is no stranger to Jacksonville. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Norwegian moved three of its ships — the "Norwegian Sky," “Norwegian Gem“ and "Norwegian Pearl" — to JaxPort docks in 2020 because of the industry's  voluntary suspension of cruises . That shutdown forced cruise lines to bring their ships back to ports and PortMiami didn't have enough room for all the ships, so Jacksonville stepped in to offer dock space.

The cruise ships didn't let any passengers on board during their time in Jacksonville. Now Norwegian is set to put the "Norwegian Gem" on the itinerary for cruise passengers out of Jacksonville.

Norwegian will start taking reservations on Feb. 15 at its web site ncl.com for a mix of travel itineraries.

The three 12-day and two 11-day round-trip journeys each year will depart Jacksonville and make calls on Great Stirrup Cay, the cruise line's private island in the Bahamas, with other stops at Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, St. Thomas and St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Antigua, Basseterre in St. Kitts, San Juan in Puerto Rico, and other destinations.

Norwegian also will have four-day and five-day cruises to the Bahamas with stops at Great Stirrup Cay, Freeport, and Nassau.

The "Norwegian Gem's" capacity of 2,394-passengers would be a bump up in size from the Carnival Elation whose normal guest capacity is 2,052 when estimating two guests per stateroom, according to JaxPort.

The "Norwegian Gem" was built in 2007 and refurbished in 2015. It sails now from Boston.

The JaxPort cruise terminal is off Heckscher Drive west of Interstate 295 and the Dames Point bridge. The height of the bridge limits the size of cruise ships that can pass under its so the jumbo-sized ships that use Port Canaveral and Miami are too large to call on Jacksonville.

Jacksonville has built its cruise business by catering to travelers who like the convenience of boarding here rather than driving farther south. In November, Jacksonville surpassed the 3 million mark for cruise passengers . JaxPort says the city is a growing drive-to cruise market with 98 million consumers living in driving distance of the cruise terminal.

How did JaxPort strike the deal with Norwegian?

The four-year agreement will have three two-year renewal options. JaxPort will pay Norwegian a $2.7 million trademark licensing fee. Norwegian will pay $1.6 million per year to JaxPort to use the cruise terminal.

The contract talks began late last year and moved quickly to reach a deal for Norwegian to use the JaxPort cruise terminal.

In addition to Norwegian's experience of JaxPort from when its ships docked here during the pandemic, the company's Seven Seas Navigator boat has come to Jacksonville for port-of-call visits. A division of Norwegian operates the 496-passenger Seven Seas.

"Today's agreement is a natural evolution of that partnership," Green told the board.

The deal also had a personal connection between Green and Juan Kuryla, the senior vice president of port development and construction for Norwegian. Kuryla previously was port director and CEO of PortMiami so he knew Green from their work in the port industry. In the "it's a small world" nature of that industry, JaxPort almost hired Kuryla to be its CEO in 2013 but Kuryla decided to stay at PortMiami.

When he interviewed for the JaxPort CEO job back then, Kuryla said he would want to bring more cargo and cruise ships to Jacksonville.

He represented the company Tuesday afternoon and told the board Norwegian was pleased at the relationship it has with JaxPort.

"Something we like to say is we go where we are wanted," he said. "We go where we are felt as a partner and as a stakeholder."

City Council President Ron Salem and Mayor Donna Deegan's chief of staff Darnell Smith joined JaxPort leaders for the ceremonial signing of the agreement.

"We all know our city is a gem, and soon it will be fitting to have this ship at our port," Salem said in remarks to the board.

Smith noted a study found the cruise industry in Jacksonville generates about 800 jobs, thousands of hotel room nights, and $187 million of economic impact.

He said when people come to Jacksonville for their cruises, he hopes they will spend time and money in the city's various neighborhoods as part of their vacations.

"We want them to enjoy Jacksonville," he said. "We want them to see all the great things we have to offer."
