Stavanger, Norway


Busy Day in Stavanger Harbor

Introduction

Stavanger (pronounced stah-vangur) is the sixth largest city in Norway. If you've been to Bergen, Stavanger is like a mini Bergen with a similar layout. Additional port guide here - http://www.cruise-norway.no/Ports/Stavanger/Default.aspx

Where You're Docked

Cruise ships dock at four available piers in the middle of the harbor beside the old town. Cruise schedule here http://www.stavanger.havn.no/cruise-traffic

Money and 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 most sights are in the town center. City Sightseeing runs a Hop On, Hop Off bus service for 250 NOK (June 2014). http://www.citysightseeing.no/
