The swell and wind in the North Sea has created considerable movement on our little ship. We both slept quite well and particularly liked the recently upgraded beds and bedding. Woke to some lumpy seas with all external decks closed for safety. Got ourselves organised and went off to breakfast. It has been a while since we've stepped sideways almost as much as forwards. It is a good thing the ship's relatively short or we would take all day to go from forward to aft.
The Destinations Presentation in the Cabaret Lounge is the first of today's selections. The presenter is Johanna Grove who delivered an overwhelming amount of information on the ports of Bergen and Trondheim. Her years of experience showed in her polished and professional delivery.
It was an interesting walk up to the Buffet for lunch where we had no difficulty finding a table. There were surprisingly few fellow passengers about.
Filled in a part of the afternoon wandering around the ship looking for possible photo ops. The atrium was quite a contrast to that on the larger ships. There's an impressive piece of art between deck 4 and 5.
Dressed up a bit for the formal night and tracked down the elusive Maitre d'Hotel who had totally forgotten what he promised the night before. Looks like we eat in the buffet for the remainder of the cruise.
Watched some TV and dozed off to the gentle rocking of the ship. By 22:00 there was only an occasional shudder as the ship hits a bigger wave.
Bergen tomorrow where we expect to dock around 07:00.
Until next time. Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
