Questions about Scandinavian Itinerary - transport/hotel feedback

Jump to last reply

Traveling from DC area in mid-summer 2014, we'll have 13 nights on the ground. We would like to visit Copenhagen (3-4 nights, 3 if we do the ship overnight to Oslo), Oslo (2 nights), Bergen (2 nights) and Stockholm (4-6 nights). It would be 4 Stockholm if we visit Visby (2 nights). I would appreciate advice on the best way to get from one place to the other. Does the ship from Copenhagen to Oslo travel over rough waters in late June? Is it a rowdy party ship? I anticipate the Norway in Nutshell tour to get from Oslo to Bergen. From Bergen, do I need to backtrack to Oslo to fly or take a train to Stockholm? Which makes the most sense in terms of time, money, sightseeing? Would you do this itinerary in reverse order? I think there may be a nonstop to Copenhagen, one reason why I planned that as the first stop.

I'm still looking for hotel feedback; these are some hotel candidates based on my reading of Tripadvisor.

Copenhagen: BW Hotel City? Radisson BLU? Somandshjemmet Bethel?
Oslo: ???
Bergen: Radisson Hotel Bryggen?
Stockholm: RIca Hotel Gamla Stan?
Visby???

Thanks for any firsthand experience you can offer.
