Cruise Ship Travel

Cruise ships navigate beautiful Oslofjord en route to Oslo and dock in the compact city center. Many of Oslo's attractions can be explored on foot from the docks, but Oslo has a good subway system, as well as plentiful buses and taxis.

Taxis are radio dispatched from a central office, and it can take up to 30 minutes to get one during peak hours. Taxi stands are all over town. It is possible to hail a cab on the street, but cabs are not allowed to pick up passengers within 100 yards of a stand. Never take pirate taxis; all registered taxis should have their roof lights on when they're available. Rates start at around NKr 109, depending on the time of day and the company.
