We took the post-cruise extension to Oslo; however, with only one full day, it wasn't long enough to do everything we desired. The city is lovely but most of the museums were closed as new ones are being built along the waterfront. The Thon Opera Hotel was a bit of a disappointment, not to the standards of the ship. Even the bartender remarked Oslo is not a great destination in the winter! Read Less

Went on this because trip also went to the Kon Tiki museum as well as the Fram Museum. All excellent and would have liked longer at them especially the latter but it was fascinating seeing the so well preserved Viking ships.

An very easy city to enjoy independently with easy acess bto most tourist attractions, the Town Hall and the New Opera House are must visits as are the Viking, Fram and Kon Tiki museums. Enjoy Oslo, we did.

My least favourite of our four ports but the best organised. Plenty of hop on buses right outside the ship but easily walked into the centre. If you wanted to see most things I’d get on the hop on hop off bus as Vigeland Park, the Fram ... Read More

We were due to dock at 0700 and knew the weather was turning so were prepared for the cloudy and damp early approach but it was so serene and pretty and we docked right by the castle. We had been before so juts chose to have a mooch and take No.12 tram out to Vigeland Scuplture Park which we had briefly visited on an all Oslo tour many years ago. ( 35 NKK each way tickets from booth on waterfront) We got off the tram a couple of stops early on the way back to swing by the Royal Palace where they had full ceremonial guards parading and a quick google on my phone of the Norwegian Court Circular listed who was coming to visit. We sat on a bench at the Parliament building and chatted to a local elderly lady which was pleasant; moments like that where you touch on normal life rather then being herded on a coach are delightful. We sailed at 1600 and it was a beautiful but cold and windy sail out to Oslo down the fjord but worth being outside for. Read Less

We rented bikes on our own in town because the ship bike tour was full. This was great! So easy to walk to town from where the ship is docked. Don't miss the world's largest sculpture garden. You can bike to all of the great sights in 4-5 hours. So much fun! Read Less
