Bergen Stavanger Ferry reviews

  • "Highly recommend."

    I did not tour the entire ship however I was favorably impressed with the Reception Deck. I did not expect Bingo or live entertainment. I did not use the cafeteria or bar. I thought the deck was attractively decorated and the restroom very clean. My only complaint is the chairs in one area were hard and uncomfortable so I moved to another area.

  • "A relaxing way to travel "

    We booked this journey on-line and looked forward to simple arrival in the port of Stavanger. Firstly the embarkation was chaotic, too many people herded into a crowded corner with no air conditioning. There were unclear directions given, leaving the long queue confused as to who should go forward first, the German group or the others??? The journey itself was good and we enjoyed the scenery. As we tried to disembark we were asked to show our 'boarding cards'?? No one told us we would need them to disembark and my husband couldn't find his. I think the clue is in the name, 'boarding cards'. If you require passengers to show them when disembarking, please advise them in advance! We had not been informed that the Quay was 17 kms from Stavanger centre or that we should purchase tickets for a bus to get there!!!!! The ONE bus that came was then too full to take the 2 of us and other passengers. We were told by the person at the Fjordline information desk, we would have to get a taxi. Why was there only 1 bus for 60 people? 8 of us had to resort to paying for a taxi. This was a stressful experience and costly and we feel Fjordline should recompense us 520 NOK, the cost of our taxi.

Bergen Guide

Located on the west coast of Norway, the city of Bergen lies on the peninsular of Bergenhalvoyen and is often referred to as the City of The Seven Mountains. The city, which mainly lies on the shore of Byfjorden, is an internationally renowned centre for shipping, petroleum and for higher education.

The Norwegian Fjords which surround the city have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the world's most spectacular natural tourist attractions. The Fjords are characterised by high, snow topped, steep mountains which surround them and are themselves deep and narrow. There is evidence that the area has been inhabited for centuries and today the area has a number of farms which some are by the fjords and some higher in the mountains.

Bergen is Norway's busiest and largest port. There are regular ferry services departing from the port to Hirtshals in Denmark. Passenger catamarans also run from Bergen south to Haugesund and Stavanger and north to Sognefjord and Nordfjord. Bergen is also the southern terminus of Hurtigruten, the Coastal Express, which operates with daily services along the coast to Kirkenes.

Stavanger Guide

Stavanger is perhaps the most international city on Norway despite only being the country's fourth largest city. The city is widely regarded as being the gateway to the Norwegian Fjords and is close to the Pulpit Rock, which is one of the most popular attractions in the region. The rock is so popular that it is estimated over 200,000 people hike to the rock each year, which is around 600 meters above sea level. Popular attractions in the city include the cathedral which dates back to 1150 AD and the old part of the city that has some lovely small, white, wooden houses. For visitors seeking a bit of culture the city has a good selection of bars, restaurants and cafes and is home to the Petroleum Museum. The colourful street called "Fargegaten" is a must see where old wooden houses have been painted in bright colours.

Located outside Stavanger, the town's port services ferries to Hirtshals in Denmark. Local ferries go to Tau and Kvitsøy, while fast passenger boats go to many villages and islands between the main routes from Stavanger to Haugesund and Sauda.
