Bergen
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Free shuttle into the town, we walked to the Funicular, bought our own tix and hiked around the lake, then back down to the fish market. Ate at Bryggenloft, a quiet lovely restaurant with mussels, frites, cheeseburger for the kids, steaks, venison. Some shopping and back to the ship via shuttle. Easy to do on your own. 15 minute wait at funicular. Could have walked it, too.

Reserved our tix ahead of time as a group (found another family of 6 on CC) so for 300 dollars for 6 of us we rode up to Myrdal and then back down, gorgeous scenery, reserved section in our train. Not too crowded despite being sold out. Then we walked aroung the port area, up some hills, took pictures. Lunch back on ship. Sail out 3:30. Safari fjord cruise sold out, not enough time to have done that with our train ressies.

Geiranger not listed, but we did a RCI Excursion hike to the Guilfloss Waterfall with 2 guides, a german and norweigian young man, good scramble hike and waffles with coffee. Great view of the ship from top of fjord. Perfect weather for this. Couldnt figure how to do this on our own, hard to get up to trailhead without the coachbus. Glad we did the excursion.

Lerwick not listed either, Shetland Islands, used a private guide who met us at the tender pier at took us to feed some ponies, see Jarlshof ruins of neolithic homes, puffin cliffs (very close to puffins here) shepherds cottage, pub soup and sandwich lunch, beach walk. Lovely.

Blue Lagoon Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Took RCI BLue Lagoon tour second day, great, easy, long bus ride, people held us up getting to bus late to return to ship. Blue Lagoon is fun and relaxing, you dont have to get totally naked.

Private excursion Golden Circle on Seasons, excellent, exhausting 10 hours we saw everyuthing inc city.

Klavsik, Faroes, 2 excursions, the rib boat to see puffins = yes, great! and the hike to see spectacular views- great scramble up a 600m hill. Gorgeous!
