Any good? My DD really wants to do it but I have to say I have never felt particularly strongly about visiting Norway and hear it's really expensive, just feels a bit meh! to me. I've done a Disney Transatlantic and it was utterly fabulous, enjoyed every minute. Anyone done both? Not necessarily Disney, any cruise to Norway really. Thanks 😊

Norway is gorgeous. We're going on another cruise there later this year. It is more expensive than UK for some things (we saw an ad for a Big Mac meal = £12) but unless you're planning on a shopping spree you probably wouldn't need to buy much if you're on a cruise anyway.

We don't eat out off the ship there - or maybe just have a quick coffee. Might add up if you want to have lunch out.

We cruised to Norway last year and loved it. Not Disney though. It was definitely a scenery holiday rather than sun and swimming (it was a bit cold at the end of august and our stop at Bergen rained non stop). But the feeling of fresh air and mountains and fjords did us all the world of good.

We didn't buy much off the ship, had no need to really, just an ice cream for the kids and little souvenirs which were probably expensive but in a 'this is a tourist trap' way due to the cruise stops rather than 'omg this is prohibitively too expensive' way if that makes any sense.

That makes me feel a bit more positive. We'd be calling at Oslo, Kristiansand and Stavanger. We'd not eat or drink off ship either. I don't drink alcohol and it would just be me and two children. I always wanted to visit the fjords but just never got round to it. I'm not sure the Disney cruise goes that far in though, seems to stay on the main coastline.

We're doing P&O. One of the days we're setting off in the early evening then cruising down two fjords for the whole of the night. It'll be midsummer so it gets dark late. Really beautiful.

Have you considered doing a Med cruise with Disney? You'd be more likely to benefit from good weather for swimming & sunbathing, and get to visit ports in Italy and French Riviera.

I cruised Norway with Disney last year. It was incredible! But then I'm a huge fan of Disney cruises anyway, have done 6 so far including 2 transatlantics, and am booked on the Panama Canal cruise next April!

Yes yes yes! We went to Norway with Disney last year, and we've booked the Norway/Denmark one next year. It was absolutely amazing. What do you want to know?
