Slight seas and grey overcast as we sail down the West Coast of Norway. At times the coast and rugged cliffs are visible on the Port side of the ship.
Attended the Destination Lecture where we were shown some beautiful images of the Gravdal and the surrounding area. From what was said this port will be a bit of a challenge as we don't have a booked tour and the "town" is some kilometres from the dock. The recommendation is to hire a car but he suggested if that option should be booked ahead.
After lunch we attended a talk by the Future Cruises Consultant. Her topic was mainly about the deals to be had on Repositioning Cruises. The majority of these are the Transatlantic voyages from the US East Coast to Britain, the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. The two exceptions were the relocation to South America and the other from the US West Coast to Asia. At the end of the presentation there was some extended discussion about the roll-out of the Ocean Medallion which is replacing the current Cruise Card. The audience opinion of this change was mixed.
Stayed in the Lounge for the Afternoon Movie. When it started it was not the advertised one. It took some time for the mistake to be rectified. "Miss Sloan" the movie had an intricate plot, some brilliant acting and a sensational climax. There was enough intrigue and suspense to maintain full attention. There wasn't the usual snoring from the audience.
After dinner we went back to the Lounge for tonight's show. She's Becky O'Brien, she's 4'8" tall and has an unbelievable voice in both range and volume. She provided an uninterrupted sequence of songs made famous by Judy Garland. Totally blew us out of our seats.
Tomorrow we dock in Gravdal.
The satellite link is still flaky but I managed to update my postings.
Today's temperatures were a high of 11 °C and a low of 9 °C. Still in unbelievable 24 hour daylight.
Until next time. Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
