Ponant Le Bellot for fjords cruise

We are interested in a small ship cruise of the Norwegian fjords in 2020, 8 days. We're looking at Ponant / Le Bellot because they sail in April / May. Having never done a small ship cruise I'd appreciate any feedback on cruising the fjords in general and this cruise line / ship in particular. Thanks in advance.

It would help if you provided a link to the cruise you are considering - I can't find it with a quick look at the relevant website. I did Bergen to Kirkenes on Hurtigruten, which is not a cruise company per se. I was very pleased with the trip.

Ponant is a good , somewhat upscale cruise line, French owned ships. We prefer sailing on small ships however we sailed with 350 passengers on a Hurtigruten cruise up the whole coast of Norway including fjords and it was excellent.

Here's the link: https://us.ponant.com/cruises/northe...-4#LE%20BELLOT

Quite a bit more expensive than Hurtigruten as you can see.

I already found that website. What I didn't find was the specific cruise.

I tried the link; you have to scroll to the top of the page. The tour is called Norwegian Treasures. Sorry for the confusion!

Interesting, that link gets me to the specific cruise on my iPad, but not on my desktop!

I don't care for the itinerary - not enough fjords - nothing north of Alesund. If you want to go to Copenhagen either fly there or take an overnight ferry from Oslo, getting to Oslo by the NiN or a train from Bergen. It's just a distraction if what you really want is the Norwegian coast.
