One of the most popular destinations for those who have not discovered the joys of cruising is Norway. The fjords are simply beautiful.
Fjord cruising tends to take place during the summer when the weather and light in Norway is at its best - both warm and daylight long into the evening. This means cruise prices can be higher than other off-peak destinations because you cannot do scenic fjord cruising in Autumn and Winter.
It is worth paying premium though. The views are simply awe inspiring.
One of the best ways to get a good deal on a Norwegian Cruise is to depart from a UK port that is nearer to Norway, for example Newcastle or and Edinburgh port such as Rosyth or Leith. That way you save the 3 extra days and cost it takes to from Southampton - definitely worth a thought as the drive is not as long as you think and the trains are very good.
