A very good option for people who want to see as much as possible in a short time. During my 3-day stay in Oslo, I visited most of the famous places and museums. And thanks to the Oslo pass card, I was able to move around the city quite quickly and save a lot of money for museum entrances. I highly recommend.

Despite the weather being cold and misty - very enjoyable cruise with the inside cosy and warm when you wanted a break from the cold. The pier was easy to find and left on time.

Beautiful to see Oslo from the water. The ship is very modern and quiet. Great!!!

The service was very good but there was little variety in the food sold on board.

Very good way to see Norway from a different perspective.
