What are the pros and cons to seeing Norway for the first time via 3 cruise ports (Bergen, Flaam, and Geiranger) versus spending 2 nights in Bergen, 1 in Flaam, and 2 in Oslo on the Norway in a Nutshell tour?
I don't know what we'll be missing if we only spend three port days in Norway versus the more immersive experience of the NIN tour. The pros for the cruise are:
-less expensive than NIN and modest hotels and includes meals while still being able to eat ashore for variety/local experience
-unpack once and eliminates checking in and out of hotels and carrying luggage around
-Also get to see Copenhagen (embark and disembarks here) and the port of Warnemunde Germany
Please weigh in! I think I'm going crazy with our planning and so many options but limited experience traveling in this area.
