... in the interests of stability in rough seas. As it turned out, this was an unnecessary precaution on our parts, the weather was calm and beautiful for the entire cruise...lucky!

Shortly after arriving on board we headed up to the buffet lunch. The food is bountiful and a good variety of Norwegian treats, smoked herring, creamed herring, pickled herring, caviar, smoked salmon, hot dishes and a good variety salads and lunch meats, you ...

Furthest Port 9:45 - 12:45 + Walk

A travel blog entry by royston4040

Walk with Inger at 10:00 into town. Walk upto a war memorial build on top of a WWII shelter. Kirkenes was occupied by the Germans (as was the whole of Norway) during the war and was one of the most bombed cities in Europe because of it's strategic importance. Was eventually liberated by the Russians. All the buildings were burnt by the retreating Germans.
Road and paths were very icy on the walk several slipped down, we and some others decided to turn ...

We were welcomed by 2 women crew members, and before we ...

Onward and Upward

A travel blog entry by btweed

... had problems once again. You'd think we'd learn from our mistakes. I had to have my body wash bottle taken away as it was bigger than 3 oz. Rescan bag, and then check out the scissors (which was ok), and re-scan again. Meanwhile Earl was having problems of his own as the scanner detected some contraband...his 8 oz tube of sunscreen. That was confiscated and his luggage was rescanned, passed and we hustled to our gate. We found Kirkenes on the monitor, and gate 18 was noted. We ...
