Oh awesome! I'm so excited for it. It will be nice because my parents and sister are coming and I don't get to see them that much. DH is mostly Norwegian and he's been wanting to go for quite some time, and it will be even betting going there with Disney.We are doing Norway next year too!!!!
I cannot wait. What was your favorite thing that you did there?Following
Did that itinerary a couple of weeks before you (we were on the 27/08 sailing), and I would have loved to stay onboard to do it all over again...
We did Norway last year, it was amazing!!
Hard to say, everything was really special!! The ports are all very different. We did half day excursions in most ports, so that we had time to explore the towns on our own (except in Bergen where we were free all day).I cannot wait. What was your favorite thing that you did there?
We did Norway in 2015 as well. It is an amazing itinerary. We loved being able to explore the ports on our own mostly as everything was so close to the ship.
My favorite thing was the hike we did in Geiranger. We just started out from the ship and hiked up the mountain to a waterfall and an overlook. Back down we got some amazing Norwegian pastries from a bakery in the village as a treat. My sister was going to write a trip report about our cruise, but never got past the introductory post. I am thinking about finishing it for her now that my trip report from last summer is nearly over...
We are most excited for Geiranger. We want to try to do the kayaking I think.Hard to say, everything was really special!! The ports are all very different. We did half day excursions in most ports, so that we had time to explore the towns on our own (except in Bergen where we were free all day).
Geiranger is definitely the place not to miss. We didn't get up early to see the ship entering the fjord (if I ever do the cruise again I will definitely do that!) but we stayed up on deck 10 when we were leaving, it was really something.
We also loved the Sunmore Museum, in Alesund, it was beautiful there!
It was really an amazing holiday
We were on the Northern Europe cruise this year, it was good. We did a private tour in ST Petersburg that was my favorite port and tour.Great trip report so far! We will be on the May 28, 2017, sailing to Northern Europe which will be our first cruise. We are discussing doing a 2018 medditerranean cruise so I'm really enjoying your report!
I laughed pretty good at the part where you're still waiting for your daughters milk. The character interactions were much better around the ship.We though the same thing about the character breakfast!! I was a bit disapointed by the whole thing, service was rushed and not as good as elsewhere (we're still waiting for my daughter's chocolate milk), and the characters interaction was close to non-existent. My daughter did enjoy it, I admit, but I thought it could have been a bit better... I much preferred meeting the characters elsewhere.
Sounds like a very relaxed first day!!
Thank you! It really means a lot. I've never written one before and was hoping I wouldn't bore you all.Very cool so far! Great read
I would love to do Northern Europe one day! You will have an amazing time. I'm glad you're enjoying!Great trip report so far!

I've never been to one of those talks before this cruise, they're so cool though. I love learning about history and such. They give you so much information on history and places to go and eat and things to look for, I loved it. Too bad we could only get to one with our schedules though. And I also love deck four. It's very relaxing.Sounds like you got a good sea day morning after the rocky start with the character breakfast! I have never been to one, but sounds like I did not miss much.
I love it that they have those talks on the ports in Europe, I wish they did this for the Caribbean, too. San Juan would have been great to get to know some history about, or Jamaica.
Isn't deck 4 magical? Definitely one of my top three spots on the ship! And a reason why I don't need a verandah.
I would love to go to St Petersburg one day. It looks amazing from pictures.We were on the Northern Europe cruise this year, it was good. We did a private tour in ST Petersburg that was my favorite port and tour.
I think I would rather sleep in next time.Yeah I remember the character breakfast on our Western cruise on Fantasy last month and it was a cluster to say the least. We wont be doing it again.
