Where I stayed
Today started as a very lazy day. Other than organising my suitcase and vacating my cabin, and eating breakfast and lunch. I think for the rest of this trip I will only eat a hearty breakfast and that's it. If I see another 3 course meal I'll scream.....or explode, whichever comes first. They really fed us well on the ship. I don't know if that is a way to keep passengers docile, maybe. I even skipped a couple of dinners including last night because I couldn't physically eat anymore.
The rest of the day was literally just cruising. Weather wise the last two days have been immaculate. Fine and sunny. The views have been absolutely beautiful. I gave up looking for orcas so my next obsession was spotting lighthouses. There are many, big and small.
The last part of the cruise definetely was smooth sailing. I think I could easily live the life of a sailor as after the first day I didn't feel sea sick again. But I would definetely need a job to do. I got very impatient just sitting doing nothing for hours. That's why I kept setting myself a task to find something in the environment. Plus I always had the internet access as back up to conquer boredom. You would have noticed that this blog has been very up to date compared to when I was in Helsinki.
We arrived in the port of Bergen at 2.30pm. My last destination for the cruise but not my trip. I still have another 9 or 10 days (I can't count) with Bergen, Oslo, Stockholm and Helsinki to go.
