August 22: Saturday (Amsterdam, Netherlands ) Our journey begins after a 10 hour nonstop flight from San Francisco to Amsterdam. We were met by the celebrity crew who picked us up from the airport where we boarded a bus that took us to our ship about 30 minutes away. The ship is enormous and our cabin although, not as big as the Princess, is comfortable. There was a bottle of wine and an appetizer plate waiting to greet us. After we settled in ...

We rode out of town on some very windy roads to a seaside town of Hollen. The town was composed of a few houses, a small grocery/variety and an ice cream stand (the Norwegians and Danes love ice cream). One street is a preservation district.

We ended the day in a restaurant in the city with a view on the harbor where we saw the Hurtigruten arriving, loading and unloading and leaving again after an hour or so. Very impressive these service boats that sail from the south of Norway all up to the most northern point in 11 days and take people and goods on board as they go from harbor to harbor.
