Bergen
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
The Ship was berthed at the container area of the Port, but a free shuttle Bus was provided. It dropped off in the City Centre by the Park, and we walked for 10 minutes to reach the Funicular Station. Mid afternoon there were no queues, and we boarded the first car to arrive. The ride up Mount Floyen is thrilling, and the Birds' Eye view from the top is superb. Skies were threatening, but it remained dry: pretty good for Bergen!

Once again Shuttle Bus took us into the City Centre. Enjoyed seeing the old houses and waterfront area as we trundled along. Drop off point is a stone's throw from the Cathedral, where we headed. Bought the combined entrance ticket which covers Nidaros itself, plus the Museum, and the side building where the Crown Jewels of Norway are kept. The Cathedral, and in particular the Rose window, are truly beautiful. Very much enjoyed our sunny Sunday afternoon in Trondheim.

Situated at the head of Aurlandsfjord,what a pretty little town Flam is! We had pre booked the half day excursion on the Flamsbana train, which was sold out before embarkation! We were blessed with clear, sunny skies, and the ride up through the mountain scenery is breathtaking. I would advise anyone taking the trip to make the effort, and disembark the steep steps of the train when it halts at the Waterfall. The music the girls dance to adds to the atmosphere, as the falls thunder down. Be quick with cameras to catch the Maids, before they vanish! Inclusive in the price of our tickets, was Tea and Waffles, taken in the Vatnahalsen Hotel. One little tip that applies to most of the excursions in the Fjords, is to take a tea bag from the Ship out with you: as the Tea provided at refreshment venues is of the Lady Grey variety, which is not to every one's palette.
