ShyGuy :

I'm looking for a website with detailed information, including schedules, cost, accommodations and discounts. I'd also like to hear from anyone who has traveled by ship. How was your experience? Any suggestions of what to bring? Thanks so much for your help. Anyone have information to point me in the right direction? Thanks!

ShyGuy :

I'm especially interested in weekly or monthly rates. Thank you! Great answer -- thank you! I'm planning on being in the city proper of Troms / Tromsø unless I hear other suggestions that sound better. Public transportation would be an issue in that case.

"There's student lodging at Helleborg: outside Ålesund. Here's the visitor info site for Ålesund: Where are you planning to go in Troms? Tromsø?"
