We are planning for a cruise next summer to the southern Norway fjord region. My wide and I have cruised in different areas with Princess, Celebrity, Holland, Royal Car, and Carnival. We use VacationsToGo for searches and for good discounts.
However, for the Norway itinerary the terminology has me a bit puzzled. For example, sailing from Bergen to Asleund to Gairanger, some lines simply say you arrive at 8 am and leave at 6 pm. Kinda the normal way. Other, like HAL, will say Scenic Cruising between one of the ports, and P&O has Scenic Cruising reference different times.
Understanding the fjords are long and narrow I'm curious about why it's Scenic Cruising on one ship and not on another.
Maybe special lectures, ranger talks, stopping to spin the ship around like in Alaska's Glacier Bay?
Or is it just marketing and copywriting hype? Any thoughts from you all. Of course, when I contact the cruise line they all say they have much scenic cruising. Thanks. Ted
