  1. What about Skjolden vs Eidfjord? Doesn't seem to be much draw to either?
  2. I think I’d still prefer the 8 night. We can take a day trip to Geiranger from Alesund.
  3. Unfortunately, my group's Norwegian Fjord itinerary, set to sail next summer, was cancelled (Holland America). I am considering, as a replacement, an 8-night itinerary on the Celebrity Reflection. The itinerary is as follows: Amsterdam Flam Alesund Skjolden Olden Bergen Amsterdam Any thoughts on this itinerary? I really wanted to go to Geiranger but figure we can do a day trip from Alesund. We previously sailed on the Silhouette and enjoyed it very much. Does the extra deck on the Reflection make it noticeably more crowded? Thanks!
  4. I'm sorry, I should have been more clear. From Alesund, you can get a private excursion on a smaller boat that sails to and from Geiranger. It's a day trip, from Alesund.
  5. I think we can get a ‘private’ sailing in and out of Geiranger from Alesund, a stop in Itinerary B. So I’m not sure Geiranger automatically wins in this case.
  6. Just thinking out loud here. Technically, if I wanted to do both Geiranger and Flam, I could get to Geiranger via the port stop in Alesund in Itinerary B, but there is little chance of getting to Flam from any of the Itinerary A ports. Thus, Itinerary B wins out, if Flam and Geiranger are priorities (I still need to do some more research to determine if this is true).
  7. Not yet. Itinerary A will replace our June 6 itinerary and still leave on June 6, 2021.
  8. Thank you. Could Itinerary B possibly make up ground if we plan a day trip to Geiranger for our day in Alesund?
  9. I tend to prefer 7-10 days for cruises in Europe, as it allows about a week for land touring. Many in our group are still of working age, so a 14-15 day trip is about all we can handle. 20 days perhaps, someday, but doubtful. For this departure out of Amsterdam, I'm considering spending some time in Belgium pre-cruise and Amsterdam/Holland post-cruise. I assume what you're getting at is a 14 day itinerary that goes farther up to the Arctic Circle? I think that sounds amazing, but many of those itineraries seem to skip some of the fjord stops like Flam and Geiranger. Is that a deal breaker?
  10. Hello, fellow HAL enthusiasts! I posted this on the Northern Europe Board but haven't had much response. After our Norway itinerary was cancelled for next year, I am scrambling to consider other options. Please compare and critique these two itineraries. A) 7 Nights Amsterdam Eidfjord Molde Geiranger Bergen Amsterdam B) 8 Nights Amsterdam Flam Alesund Skjolden Olden Bergen Amsterdam In your opinion, which one wins? Is Geiranger that much of a must-see that it automatically wins out over Itinerary B? Thanks!
  11. Thanks for the reply! I was unable to delete the old topic. And they do ask different questions.

  13. Due to a recent cancellation of our cruise, I am trying to choose from remaining itineraries. How would you rank (1 being the best), the ports of Alesund, Flam, and Molde? Thanks!
