Brilliant cruise to the Norwegian fjords on this stunning ship. The weather could have been better but it was still very enjoyable. The food served onboard is perfect and afternoon tea served in the Oriental restaurant is absolutely delicious.

    Thank you for all the extra information. I love Bergen and the brightly coloured houses along Bryggen. The fish market with all the fish is a wonderful place.

    It sounds as if Haugesund really did you proud.

    I have done a Norway Fjord cruise on the QM2. I loved the sights and ports we visited. I would definitely recommend a Norwegian cruise, stunning scenery.

    Further to our Britannia cruise.
    We visited four ports
    Andalsnes. Very small town but quite pretty.
    Bergen. We walked to the Fish Market to explore and then on to the "Wooden Houses" on the edge of the fjord very interesting. We also called in at the JuleHus (Christmas Shop) and bought some beautiful Christmas decorations.
    Olden, astonishingly beautiful setting . We walked around the Fjiord and had lunch in a small cafe there. The locals all waved us off as we sailed away.
    Haugesund this was the maiden visit of Britannia. She was advertised as sailing into Stavanger but apparently there was a problem with docking/tender never did get the full story. As it was Britannia's first visit there was a band there to greet us and the mayor and some officials toured the chip with a TV crew. The town is quite large and has a very long pedestrianised shopping street. Lots of restaurants around the shore. There was a shuttle bus here.

    We didn't go on any of the excursions as we used to live in Norway so we had been to most of the sights previously.

    The only problem with the first three ports was the heavy rain showers but we still enjoyed the visits.

    The average time in each port was about eight hours.

    The cabins are excellent, we had a balcony cabin with a sofa. It was very roomy and there was a large wall mounted boat screen TV with a plentiful supply of varied TV stations and films.

    There is no full length promenade deck on Britannia but there is a deck on the upper ship which you can walk around part.
    Outside viewing areas. Part of deck 7 some of which is a smoking area
    Java coffee house has some outside seating.
    Decks 15 upwards all have viewing areas.

    We had freedom dining which we prefer. So we dined when we liked and we never had a problem we always had a table as we arrived.
    I must say the good was fantastic.

    Did I like Britannia? Yes I did and I would sail on her again with no hesitation, the service, food and shows were excellent.
    My favourite port was Bergen, having lived there this was the most typical Norwegian style town.

    As I said previously the only problem was the weather .

    Please can you tell me a bit more about the ports you visited. How long did you have at each? Did you join any excursions or explore under your own steam? Which was your favouite?

    What were the cabins and public areas of the ship like? What about outside viewing areas?

    Did you have set dining times and set tables or could you change as you wished?
