Good and plenty of shrimps served, good cruise around the Oslo area with good sunset views and friendly staff together with decently priced drinks (for Oslo) made for a relaxing few hours.

If you like shrimps and wooden boats, then you don't want to miss this.
Very well spend money as you really have shrimp buffet, which will not run out.
During our visit it was also season for some crabs so the buffet was even bigger.
Especially end of the season remember to have warm clothes (even hat and mittens) as the evening is cold.

Really pleasant journey.

I can not recommend this company at all. We were scheduled to go out for an evening cruise and a horrible lightening,hail and thunderstorm happened as we were walking over to the meeting place. We called the company and asked if the trip was going to still happen with the storm. They told us they go out in any type of weather. We could not believe that they would take that type of risk. We asked for a refund and they would not give it to us. Do not take your family out on this trip. Totally irresponsible. The airport even shut down and diverted flights that day. All we wanted was a refund.

Thanks for putting this on tripadvisor. We are sorry you feel this way. We would never ever put passengers in harms way. Did you go out on the tour? In any case, did you try to get a refund where you did buy your ticket?

A very relaxing trip round the islands of the Oslo Fjord. To see the Oslo harbor front all lit up was a sight worth seeing. The shrimp supper was fantastic especially as there was no restrictions on how much you took. The bar had a great choice of drinks for purchase.

An incredible evening! My family and I (a group of 5 people in total) originally booked the 2 hr trip but decided early on that same day that we'd rather take the 3 hour cruise. We sent them an email via the Trip Advisor App to see whether it was possible to upgrade to the 3 hour cruise. We thought they wouldn't answer as it was such sort notice, however, being incredibly organized they answered me within a few hours, saying they still has space on the cruise and that we would be upgraded. They sent me a link to pay the difference and a receipt of payment. We arrived at the Pier at 6.45pm to make the 7.00pm cruise, went to the ticket booth with the receipt and were issued tickets. We got onto the beautiful wooden ship and began our cruise. It was simply wonderful. There was a bar on board where we could purchase drinks and clean bathrooms. The shrimp buffet was incredibly fresh and abundant. Incredible views ensued. We cruised out into the Fjord where the Shrimp Buffet was served around 1 hour into the trip. We enjoyed the exquisite buffet with astonishing views and were taken along the coast where we enjoyed looking at moored boats and wonderful cabins at sunset and eventually re-entered the port, able to see Oslo with it's beautiful lights.
A great, relaxing experience. Highly recommended.

My wife and I loved the cruise but two things you should know. They fill the ship so get there early or you won't get a nice seat. Second, a lot of smoking on the ship so don't expect to be breathing in fresh air. I wish that wasn't the case but every table had an ash tray and they were all being used. Being from the US we were not used to smoking to that level.

Hi and thanks for pointing out the smoking issue onboard. We do (by national law) have a policy on nonsmoking onboard. We will make sure that all personnel now are more aware of the law and enforces this. Thanks for a great review and the sharing :)

I guess with good weather must be a nice cruise. We had to endure a quite bad storm. Music a little bit too loud. A nice experience, though. You get to see some very nice mansions.

It's a fun cruise and it's a very different view from the water, as to seeing the cottages on the hill sides, sail and motor boats cruising around, and sights from the city with a different vantage point. My taste for shrimp is long gone. But the others in my party mostly were not impressed - they hadn't been cleaned, and had attached eggs, and there was no traditional American cocktail sauce to go with it. But some enjoyed it. I've seen two other fjords in Norway about ten years ago, Geiranger fjord & Sognefjord, and they are both much more dramatic. But Oslo fjord is worth seeing if you can't get to the coast further west.

The staff on the boat is very friendly and professional.
The Shrimps on board are just fine, however, coming from abroad anyway. The left-over is thrown at the end of the cruise, and it is a lot. The bread (white) and butter are not very tasty, better could be done on quality over quantity.
In the evening, you won't see too much, so better doing this cruise before end of August.
