The city of Bergen was founded in 1070 by King Olaf III and was originally called Bjorgvin; now Bergen is home to approximately 225000 inhabitants. Bergen is the second largest city of Norway and was honoured with the title of European Capital of Culture in 2000. Bergen boasts many popular attractions, including Floybanen (a Funicular railway), the Edvard Grieg museum, the Hanseatic Museum, the Fish Market and the Bergen Aquarium, which has one of the finest and most extensive collections of marine fauna in Europe.
Floybanen, the Funicular railway, will take you from the city center (150 meters from the Fish Market) to the top of the Mount Floyen at 320 meters above sea level. There you can enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding islands and walk along numerous paths around the mountain and to the lakes. The Troldhaugen, the Edvard Grieg museum, was the home of Nina and Edvard Grieg. This attractive Swiss-style house was built in 1884-85, with a spectacular view of the Lake Nordaas.

12 Aug 2016Cabin and smoking
arrival time in Bergen was 12.30. However we had to leave our cabin at 10.00 because they had to clean the cabins. This was announced while we were having our breakfast. We did not know that we had to leave the cabin that early. We travel a lot with ferries to the UK. This is the first time we had to leave our cabin 2.5 hrs before arrival. No limitation what so ever in smoking zones. Even when you sit outside smoking for other people is not very nice.

I have to say that it was the best ferry journey I have ever been on. The ship was very clean and the cabins accommodating and of high standard. As for the catering we ate in the buffet restaurant, and though a little expensive worth every penny. Very high quality cuisine in a very relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Will certainly use the Fjord Line again.

Initially we were going to drive all the way to Bergen and looking at a 3 or 4 day journey. My wife wasn't keen on being a passenger for 4 days so I looked for alternative routes and stumbled upon Hirtshalls to Bergen ferry. Although she also had some reservations of sailing up the North Sea. Her fears were dispelled. We had an outside cabin, which was adequate given we were only sleeping in there, the meal on the boat served from the bar area was excellent. The guy who served us was very friendly and obliging. All in all a good decision, the cost of the ticket was offset by not needing two hotels and about 700 miles diesel saved. One slight gripe, when we first got on board it took some time to find our cabin. It may just help if there was someone at the top of the stairs to direct people to where they need to go, and stop the milling around of people. As I said it was a small insignificant concern.

When I got on board my room key wasn't working and it took me some time to get it fixed. When I was able to enter the cabin it was not clean and i had to wait more time to be able to start using the cabin. But the rest was ok.
