Money & Tipping

Norway's currency is the Norwegian Krone (NOK). Euros may accepted. Though not expected, a small tip (5-10%) is usually appreciated when dining in restaurants if you are happy with the service.

Local Transportation

You shouldn't need to use local transportation since cruise ships dock beside downtown. City Sightseeing runs a Hop On, Hop Off bus service for 200 NOK (June 2014). http://www.citysightseeing.no/
