The bus stopped just outside the ship secured area and was very new and comfortable. The stops were well marked and buses came frequently. It was an easy way to get around Bergen and see all the sites. Our first stop was the funicular as it gets crowded early.
Stavanger is not a big city, however, the bus made it easy to get an overall tour of the town. The bus came very close to our ship's dock.
The bus route near the dock was slightly different than the map but did not cause a problem..
The bus came right to our ship. Oslo is a big city with many sites spread out in a large area. The hop-on-hop off made it easy to get from site to site. It was raining the day we visited Oslo and the bus made it convenient .to stay dry while traveling between sites. It was also possible to skip some outside venues and come back later when the showers stopped. In Oslo as in some other locations, there are copy cat hop-on-hop off buses that look almost identical. People were frequently trying to get on the wrong buses. Make sure you note the slight differences between them. Our's was identified as the "Official" hop-on-hop off. Bus staff pointed this out at our first ship side stop.
