Just got back to Copenhagen from Oslo this morning and I had a great time! I wasn't sure what to expect from the cruise but it was only $55 total for transportation and 2 nights stay. We ended up only having 7 hours in Oslo but that was plenty of time for Oslo to win over my heart. I did not have high expectations for Oslo considering the few Danes I spoke to about it did not love it. Maybe that's just their Danish pride?
