Our final entry
The Captains report at midday said we are 126 miles off the coast of Cromer hence the map location.

It has been a very interesting cruise, we have visited some amazing ports of call and enjoyed fantastic activities and the snowy scenery had been quite spectacular.
Having avoided the afternoon tea session for the past two weeks I couldn't resist popping along to the Britannia Lounge for the tea dance. I was amused to see those passengers who always seem to rely on their sticks and walking frames get into 5th gear as they joined the queue to partake in the delicious array of savoury and sweet delights.
I opted for the cream tea with delicious warm scones and Tiptree Jam, well I do have a few days when I get back before my weigh-in a Slimming World. 
Another formal evening with everyone dressed in their finery.
After dinner we went along to the show lounge, the production team were performing their last show after spending 6 months on board. It was a good show with tributes to Tina Turner, Elton John, Shirley Bassey, Dolly Parton and Elvis Presley and as we left the lounge the troupe had gathered outside to bid farewell to all the passengers.
Our last day at sea and plenty of lectures, activities and entertainment around the ship. I went along to the presentation by the Orca Wildlife team to enjoy viewing photographs of the various wildlife that had been spotted during our trip.They showed a photograph of a young Glocus Gull, aah so that was the bird I saw from the deck some days ago.
It will soon be time to start packing -  we are not due to leave the ship until 11.30am on Thursday but with a vehicle waiting to take us home we can enjoy the time in the comfort of the ship, a great advantage compared  to sitting around a busy airport.
Well folks this is my final blog, so hope you have enjoyed sharing in our trip to Norway.

Thank you so much Beverly....... loved your account of your travels and especially the Ice Hotel.... You are really adventurous. We have never done Saga before but it makes us look at it in a new light.

Absolutely wonderful.

Hi Beverly, Saved reading your blogs until now. What a different trip to the one we took back in May whenever, forgotten which year, You are much more adventurous than we were. Don't think I could have stood it so cold. But I did go to an ice bar and had a drink from an ice glass, does that count? As always lovely pictures and interesting views of life on and off ship. When is your next trip? Look forward to it.. Lots of love Sheila xxx
