It was a 7-day cruise of the fjords. I'd never been on a cruise before, and I doubt I ever will again but that can't ruin how beautiful Norway's fjords really are. A quick whirlwind through Ålesund, Geiranger, Eidfjord, and Bergen--not in that order. There are a lot of things I learnt from this and the number one point being that unless you are elderly, don't do Norway by cruise. You don't get enough time in the locations and when you are there, so are 10 other cruiseships which makes for a very crowded, fake, and touristy experience as opposed to appreciation of the natural beauty Norway has on offer. Also, as a note, some of these stops tell you the only way to see the sights is by cruise-organized tour. Not true! There are local companies... but even better there are hourly car rentals in some locations like Geiranger! If only we'd known. Ideally, drive Norway. Or train. Don't see it by cruise. But as you can see, even a cruise tour can grab a few drive-by views!
