It might depend what time of the year, what schedule.
During summermonths more some kids on board.
Last May we sailed to Norway on Century.
It was a nice mix of ages and nationalities.

We sailed the North Cape iten in July last year. The average age I would say was 55-65 years old with a wide variety of Dutch and German passengers aboard.

I am from Aalesund one of the ports this ship will visit. I am booked on the cruise leaving Amsterdam July 28, 2008.
Celebrity Cruise Line is my favourite, and I can't wait.

As I have cruised Norway on what is called Hurtigruten I can tell you the scenery is spectacular, the dates in July is perfect for the chance of the best weather.
The best

Mrs. Miller,
Do you think we should book a tour through the ship for Aalesund or is it easy to get around by ourselves? And is there anything we should not miss seeing during our one port day there? And have you been on the Norway in a Nutshell tour from Bergen or Flam? We are going on the Ireland/Norway cruise departing in late August 2008 from Amsterdam. Thank you for any information!

Good afternoon.

As regarding the question about Aalesund If there is one thing I know it is that you can easily be entertained there for the day, no guide needed every thing is at your feet.
The architecture etc, is fabulous, the scenery spectacular, the seafood none better. Ok, so I am biased. But you will know what I mean when you get there. My suggestion to you is to look at the thread in Cruise Critic Thread 5556768; it is listed as Century July28, 2008. You will find many suggestions.

As for the Norway in a nutshell, no I have not done that. But I have taken the train from Oslo to Bergen, I wish that I had been able to take the Flam excursion, and if I possible can squeeze it in this year I will do so.

I will be happy to answer any question you might have.
Bon Voyage.

Hi...
If this is helpful, I don't know! I've sailed Celebrity Century several times (she's a grand ship which received a most impressive upgrade in 2005) and sailed trans-Atlantic (May, 2005) from FLL to Northern Europe (visited 5 countries) before reaching Amsterdam. This is a great adventure, although I don't know the countries on your itinerary, because of the cruise line and this particularly wonderful ship. Enjoy.

Dennis

Sorry, I didn't answer your second question.

Celebrity lines usually caters to 50+ aged adults (I am 60) with usually discriminating tastes with which it can deal very effectively. I am a large fan of this particular cruise line.

Hi Mrs Miller. We're also going on this particular cruise on 28 July and were very interested in your reply about Alesund. Have you an opinion on the other ports of call? We'd most like to do a few organised trips and the rest ourselves - just wondered which were the best to do with Celebrity. Also what would you recommend clothing wise for trips at this time of year in Norway? Thanks for any info you are able to give

Hi Dollysmom.
Glad to be of assistance, and so happy that you are joining us.
If you go to the thread listed below, you will find fellow cruisers, please join our thread and our meet and greet group
As for clothing, personally I try to travel as light as possible.
Essential are layers. Norway can be both hot and cold in the summer.
If I may suggest, a trench coat is great, you can wear light or heavier clothing under. I also suggest jeans or sturdy slacks for cool days and a couple of sweaters, good walking shoes, this way you won’t be miserable if you have some cool sight seeing days.
On the ship use your summer items.
Please surprise our group by clicking on the thread and say hello, and you will find answers to most of your questions regarding what to do in each port. Most of us have listed our preferences and I have given my input as well.

Bon Voyage
