Excellent cruise. Enjoyed the full 2 hours. Very friendly staff onboard. Booked the cruise only on the morning of cruise day. Glad to be able to book a slot despite the boat looking quite filled. Could get really cold due to the wind. Saw reviews advising to layer up and that really helped.

Don’t let the sun fool you. It’s cold out at sea for obvious reasons but the boat so kindly give out blankets. Get yourself a scarf and gloves to keep warm. Nice boat ride learning about Fjords in Oslo, Norway. Fell quiet for a while as there’s not something to talk about every minute but still interesting to go on. Would recommend just take extra layers :)

The boat is nice, old school design. The audio guide is offering just the right amount of information. The views are nice and the crew is friendly. The only issue was that the boat was packed with people. We got there 10 minutes before the scheduled leave time and struggled to find a place to sit. The places we did find had a terrible view, so for most of the ride we stayed on the stairs, so that we could actually see something other than the people sitting in front of us. Make sure to arrive very early in order to catch a good spot next to the water. Another piece of advice: unless your ride is in the summer, make sure to have something to cover your head and maybe an extra scarf (there are also blankets provided on the boat). We went on a sunny day with 13 degrees, but after the two hour ride we were frozen. The Norwegian water wind is no joke!
