I have been to the Norweign Fjords, but not on HAL. It was on NCL. It is the best and I have cruised all over. We went to Oslo, Bergen and Geiranger. The fjords are about 100 times better than Alaska. We went in July, and had perfect weather. There were all kinds of little boats sailing around our cruise ship. It was fabulous. We also went to Sweden, France, and Amersterdam. I cannot say enough good things about Norway. It is a spectacular country. Go and have fun. I love HAL too. In fact I leave in 7 weeks for a cruise aboard the Zuiderdam. I have also been on the Zaandam. Other cruise lines include Carnival, Celebrity, Princess, HAL, RCCL, NCL.
