Booked a city tour and trip up funicular railway to top of Mount Floein. Worth going up for the brilliant view. Also shopping opportunity at the summit.

We were lucky with some lovely weather and Bergen is a place where it is easy to explore yourself. There was a free shuttle bus from the ship into the city centre. Recommendation: pick up a Mount Floyen walking tour brochure from the Tourist Information office (opposite the Fish Market) and then head to the funicular railway as quickly as possible. The queue was all the way down the street by the time we arrived, although it moved reasonably quickly and we were on board after around 30 minutes' wait. It's 40K one way. Many people go up for the view (which is great) and come straight back down. But at the top we followed one of the walking routes in the brochure to two lakes and had a picnic lunch (ordered from room service the night before!). Rather than taking the funicular back down, we walked it which took about 45 minutes. We then explored the historical wooden buildings of "Bryggen" and checked our emails on our mobile for free by standing outside Pepes Pizza and using their wifi :) Read Less

Very helpful and friendly people. The coach trip was over rated and over priced but a nice break. Would have had a great view but it was foggy and cold. Gerainger: Would have been really lovely but for the fog but it did clear. Some people on the coach were desperate for the loo but the coach stopped in the area above where it was but didn't tell them. It was a longish trip to cope with without a comfort break so beware. Our son went kayaking and had a great time. Skjolden: Absolutely stunning approach. The waterfalls was spectacular. The water like a millpond and so blue. It was a lovely day so we stayed on board and had a restful time. it was lovely. Stavanger: A lovely little place. Very quaint buildings.I had told my husband and son about the Oil Museum before we went and they poo poohed it but when it came to it we did go in and it was very interesting and worth the visit. All in all the Norwegians are very hospitable and friendly. It is very quiet and clean. There isn't much in the way of restaurants, cafe's or bars to stop off at. We made it back to the ship for refreshments, much better. Read Less

In Bergen, the ship is docked in a commercial loading area. There is a (free) shuttle bus to the town. It brings you from the ship to a lovely park near the center of town. The thing to do, so we had heard, was to go up in the funicular to the mountain top for the views. Since our day there was rainy, we did not do that. We did walk around the town. The old section Bryggen was very quaint and pretty. The town is quite walkable. There is a lovely little lake with museums around it. We spent some time in the art museum. For one ticket, you can visit four buildings of art. It is remarkably low key, but does have some lovely paintings by Norwegian and other European artists. Strolling through the cobblestone streets is quite pleasant too. Read Less

We were primarily interested in the beautiful scenery on our trip, and not so much in cultural or historical places, or shopping. Bergen is a nice enough town, but quite frankly there was not much in it that interested us. We walked around town for an hour or so and then headed back to the ship. If you are planning a Norway trip and want a rest day from one of the port days, Bergen is the place to do it. Read Less

We took the Bergen Highlights excursion, which we enjoyed, but we arrived back at the ship just in time for the sail away at 2.00 pm - a far too early departure time from such an interesting port of call. It is worth noting that the Celebrity ships now moor at the container terminal which is further away from the centre and no-one is permitted to walk freely into town from the ship because the area is 'restricted'. A free shuttle bus is provided from ship to town. Read Less

We didn't do any excursions in Bergen and again took the free shuttle bus into town along with our map. We went through the town to the Fish Market which is a must see with it's array of fish & seafood which you can sit and eat at reasonable prices. We then went onto the Bryggen to see Old Bergen which has narrow alleyways and wooden houses turned into fashionable local stores which were fascinating. Unfortunately the day we was there, five large ships were in port with loads of people of all nationalities milling around. Definitely would like to go back to Bergen one day to see more. Read Less

We took the city sightseeing bus which was more expensive than we usually pay and also took the funicular railway which was excellent value and gave us an amazing view of the town. The market was very interesting and varied but prices were inflated. We were lucky to have a dry day as it usually rains in Bergen. There was a very cold wind though. Pack your waterproof and warm sweater! Be aware that Norway is expensive so take sufficient euros or krona for the things you want to do. Read Less

We took the Norway in a Nutshell tour which lasted 9 hours. This was an incredible tour involving coach and two train journeys. We went through some incredible scenery, had a wonderful lunch at a spectacular hotel, went down the steepest road in Norway and travelled on the famous Fram railway, the steepest 'normal' trainline in Europe. A very expensive day but well worth the money and not to be missed. Read Less

Lovely city and easily done independently. We took free shuttle bus into town and walked round the fish market and Bryggen. Then went on the tourist train which gave us a good overview of the city.

Lovely town, we did it on our own and it is a easy walk into the centre of town. We took the finicula up the mountain for views of the city. Then walked down the mall, went to the fish market on the wharf and walked through town to see a lovely fountain. Unfortunately it was raining so we then headed back though a fort back to the ship for a late lunch. Would have spent more time in town if the weather was better. Read Less
