We may soon be able to add something valuable to this topic. We are soon leaving on a longer cruise (42 days) which includes cruising up along the Norwegian coast to north of the Artic Circle. Although there are many Baltic cruises that stop in Oslo (we like this city) not many cruises really explore Norway. Several cruise lines such as Holland American (that is the line we are using) and Princess do have 1 or 2 cruises a year that go along the Norwegian Coast and do some of the Fjords. These cruises are all in May and June. There is also the "Mail Boat" which is a coastal ship (yes, it does carry the mail) which offers many more opportunities to see Norway. The mail boat does have cabins and also functions as a cruise ship.
