Norway with Public Transport: Aug'22

I am a solo traveler and I have booked Norway+Sweden trip in August from India. Fingers crossed as I am still awaiting my visa (it's been 15 days already since I applied!). My plan is as below:
Aug 7-Aug 10: Stockholm
Aug 11: Fly into Molde from Stockholm via Oslo (3 hr layover, SAS flight booked). Since I have an Indian passport, I'll have to go through customs & security, any recent experience with Oslo airport? Should I be worried about missing my connection? (Overnight in Åndalsnes, 1.5 hr away from Molde reachable by bus)
Aug 12: Romsdalsgondolen cable car trip, explore nearby region (Overnight in Åndalsnes)
Aug 13: Take the Åndalsnes-Geiranger bus (220) via Trollstigen. After reaching Geiranger, take the 3 hour cruise to Ålesund. (Overnight in Ålesund)
Aug 14: Explore Ålesund in the day. Take the 1:20 am Hurtigruten cruise (no cabin booked) to Bergen. (Overnight in cruise)
Aug 15: Reach Bergen at 3 pm (Overnight in Bergen)
Aug 16: Bergen day trips: Steinsdalsfossen. (Overnight in Bergen)
Aug 17: Bergen-Voss-Gudvangen (bus) (Norway in a Nutshell DiY tour). Gudvangen-Flåm ferry followed by Flåm-Balestrand Norled ferry. (Overnight in Balestrand) All ferries are booked already.
Aug 18: Explore Balestrand (Overnight in Balestrand)
Aug 19: Balestrand-Flåm ferry followed by Flåm railway to Myrdal and then to Oslo. (Overnight in Oslo). Flåm Oslo sector booked
Aug 20: Fly out of Oslo
I know it's quite a whirlwind but I am traveling alone and I am quite active on my travels. I still have ensured I am staying 2 nights everywhere except my last night in Oslo.
Any thoughts/ suggestions?

My first thought is that it is very rushed and you really need to slow down. But if you are fine with that tempo, why not? It certainly can be done.
