Cruising in September

Hi. Myself, husband and 17yr old son are going on a Thomson cruise from Harwich in September to Norway. Does anyone have any idea what the weather is likely to be like and the estimated cost of excursions. Having travelled up to Norway we would really love to have an idea of what are the best sights to see. We are going to Ulvik, Flamm and Bergen.

Weather may be excellent, but with low temps at night.

Have no idea on excursion prices, but N is regarded as high-cost country. 250-400 NOK/family ? Depends on what you do of course. If you have the time, rent a bike at Flaam railway station, take the train to Myrdal and bike downhill.

In Bergen: The aquarium, Floeibanen, Bryggen (expensive spot)

If you fancy hiking and have a full day at Flaam you might want to do the Aurland Valley lower part. Bus from Flaam to Oesterbo, downhill 6hr to Vassbygd, bus to Flaam. Do not know about bus schedules though. Ask at Flaam tourist office.

Have a nice trip !

Hi, just read your post and just realised its nearly 2 years old, but I will ask anyway.

Did you have a nice time on your Norweigen cruise? We are booked on the Thomson Spirt From Harwich for 27th August 07 and will be visiting Bergen, Ulvik, Flam & Eidfjord. Would be gratefull for any tips eg: Weather, excursions, ship, dress code etc.

MESSAGE FOR VUE: We're doing the same cruise! I've been looking into doing trips ourselves as cruise trips are always so expensive. Might have do the Flam train trip via the cruise though as it doesn't seem certain we'll get seats on train otherwise.
