Absolutely loved it. Spectacular scenery and the ship we loves. Food and drink great and loved the atmosphere...entertainment great too. The kids loved the kids club even though as teens they never usually bother with it.
Great, glad you loved it x

Their behaviour. From downright rude, to absolutely disgusting.

Im sure you will. On Cruise Critic there are many, many people who love P&O. I think we just had a bad experience, especially with the service we had. It seems most have a great service.

We sailed to the fjords on the Ventura about 8 years ago. I did really enjoy it and would go again, but I did miss having a week in the sun. The Ventura was lovely and I would recommend it to anyone. The thing that sticks with me is that we went on an excursion called "Panoramic Bergen and Mount Floen" (I think that's how you spell it). Trouble is it was so foggy that, far from panoramic, we couldn't see our hands in front of our face!

Thats always a risk in Bergen, the weather can be temperamental and it rains a lot, we had same thing happen on our last trip there, what a waste of money! Would never pre book the floyban, just see if its nice enough on the day, and then go up, tickets are so easy to buy, and the town is walkable from the ship usually. Bergen is lovely anyway, the Bryggen area of little alleys is well worth exploring.

We are doing the Fjords on Britannia the first weekend in September so have read through this topic with interest! It's our 6th cruise and usually I know what I want to do by now but I'm struggling a little with this one. We are going with my parents and my sister's family to celebrate my mums 60th, she loves Norway so it was really her choice of destination. Its their first cruise so I'm just hoping they don't hate it!

We all booked saver fares as the price difference for select was huge, and now I'm worried that we won't all get the same dining allocation. Have requested anytime dining for all 3 cabins and all we can do now is hope I guess. I know you're not supposed to be able to change allocation once on board, but I'm wondering if one cabin gets given set dining I will be able to plead our case? We don't plan to eat together in the MDR every night but it would be nice to at least a few nights!

We've all decided not to pre book any excursions as the weather could be a problem- even before I saw the post above about it being foggy! My mum has parkinsons as well and she never knows how active she will feel on any given day so needs to keep her options open. My 3yr old nephew is coming so if nothing else we can walk around with him, 3yr olds make their own entertainment!

DH is sulking a bit with the choice of destination as he'd much rather do a week somewhere hot, so I'm really hoping he enjoys it more than expected. I think I'll just enjoy spending time with the family.

I guess trying to please all of the people all of the time is impossible on any holiday, not just a cruise. Fjords ports of call have an amazing range of things to do and youve probably done your research on the options for all weather variables. Were on the Ventura mid June, travelling with DD, SIL and 8 month twins! Having cruised the fjords before, were just going to go with the flow!
