Our favorite port. We booked a 3-1/2 hour fjord cruise that left from the quay about a 15-minute walk from the ship. The cruise was beautiful, taking us past mountains, waterfalls, and wildlife. We stopped to feed goats, and then later watched the ship's hand fill a bucket with crystal clear water from a waterfall, which he poured out for everyone to taste. When we left the boat, we happened upon a wonderful Thai-Japanese restaurant on the quay, where we had a great meal. We then walked back through the fish market, to Bryggen, the old town. We then returned to the ship through the park. Read Less

Really enjoyed Bergen. So much history and lots of places to walk around and to get off the beaten track. Fish market is well worth a visit. Expensive but worth it.

Very expensive, it rained continually when we were there, so a revisit on a dry day would be good. Lovely seafood lunch in the Fishmarket.

We have been to Bergen several times in the past so we did not venture out in the pouring rain.

The dock is close in to the town so that walking was easy and it was beautiful. I particularly enjoyed the fish market and the business areas.

Busier town to buy niknaks and gifts. The ship was docked a 10 minute walk from the main shopping area, but it's well worth going. We took the Fenicula to the top of Mount Fløyen; this was lovely, and the views were spectacular. However, don't book ahead as the weather was quite cloudy, and the views wouldn't have been there if so. However, if the weather is nice and you decid for to go, buy a ticket from the bakery to the right of the ticket shop/entrance. The queues for the ticket office are long, but we got a ticket and a bun straight away, and hardly had to wait any time for the train! Read Less

Took funicular to top of Mt Florein. There was a huge line for this and it took over and hour, even though we pre-purchased tickets. Once at the top the view was great. Went through shopping village by the port. The city is OK, but the ... Read More

We did not buy a shore excursion from Holland America. We just walked from the ship to the fish market. On the way we visited the castle near the port. Tip: don't eat at the expensive restaurants along the main street from the ship to the fish market. If the weather permits, eat outdoors at the fish market. If the weather is bad, walk to the street behind and parallel to the main street for cheaper restaurants. We did not buy a ticket for the lift to the top for the view. We walked the winding streets and paths up the hill. Read Less
