Norway in a Nutshell -- Classic or Premium? Or Basic Fjord RIB?

I'd like to do the Norway in a Nutshell trip and was wondering what people's experience and recommendations were regarding choice of the Classic or Premium ships? (I'd like to spend most of the time outside in front able to see the Fjord on either side and we move forward, and it did not look like the Premium had much space for that -- and it's about 45 minutes shorter trip?)

OR the guided Basic Fjord trip in a RIB?

Thanks! And one more question. The weekend train arrives back into Bergen about 5pm. Are the trains punctual and reliable enough that I don't need to worry about getting to my cruise ship around 5:30-5:40 so I don't get stranded?

Hi there,
Our family of three did the classic ship and loved it. We did this in the summer of 2015. The ship had lots of spots to see everything.

No problems with train to boat to bus connections. Timed perfectly. My husband was worried about the timings too, but no problems.

Never heard of the RIB boat tours. Just looked on the internet, seems interesting. Might so that on our next visit.

Have a great adventure!
