Bergen is the second largest city in Norway and a busy port serving the oil and gas industry in the North Sea. Additional port guide here http://www.cruise-norway.no/Ports/Bergen/default.aspx

Where You're Docked

Ships may dock at several different piers around Bergen marked J on the map below. Shuttle service is usually provided for locations further out dropping you off near the fountain downtown. Schedule from Port of Bergen here http://www.bergenhavn.no/

As of 2016, ships docking in Jekteviken/Dokken areas will have the shuttle drop them off at the port gate with the 600m walk to the city center marked.

Money and Tipping

Norway's currency is the Norwegian Krone (NOK). Euros may be accepted at tourist friendly shops. Tipping is generally not expected in Norway. Small change is typically left when dining at restaurants (5-10%). Maid staff in hotels and taxi drivers do not need to be tipped.

Local Transportation

You shouldn't need to use local transportation since most sites are in the city center. City Sightseeing runs a Hop On, Hop Off bus service for 250 NOK (June 2014). http://www.citysightseeing.no/
