Visiting Bergen on cruise ship

My husband and I will be in Bergen early September on P & O Cruise. Could anyone please tell me does the boat dock near enough to the town for us to explore by ourselves or would it be advisable to use services offered by cruise company?

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

If you plan to visit the city only, that is easily done on foot from the dock.

From that dock is it a long walk to the funicular? Fish Market?

Will be in Bergen for only 6 hrs and would like to see the pier area and the funiclar and the city from there.

Fish market and funicular is nearly same place. About 1 km, 10 min quick walk.

Dear Viking:

Thanks for the information. I also will be arriving in June on cruise ship and this information is helpful. We plan to walk around the city and see everything on foot. Grandfather was born in 1879 Askvol, which looks to be just North of Bergen.

Askvoll is on the Atlantic. Going there takes about 4 hours from Bergen, at least one ferry crossing.

Don't have high expectations about the fish market.
