We arrived in Copenhagen 2 days before our cruise and had a chance to get acclimated to the time change, do a city tour and enjoy Tivoli Gardens. It was our second visit to Copenhagen and it was absolutely delightful.
We visited the Viking Museum in Oslo and did the Hop-on/off tour. There was very little information on that tour, a bit disappointing but a lovely drive through the city. There were a few other things I wanted to do in Oslo but had resistance from my 14 year-old traveling companion so I decided to save those for next time.
In Kristiansand we did the Rib Boat tour and it was fabulous. I could have spent more time exploring the small islands, but it was a really fun tour and a huge hit with the teenager. After the boat we had plenty of time to explore the city and have lunch, it was delightful.
We loved being on the midship area, away from the elevators. The veranda is great, especially going through the fjords and archipelago.
We walked to the funicular, hiked around, shopped in town. It was lovely.
We saw the neolithic sites, very interesting.
We rode the hop on/off bus to the viking museum and back to the ship.
We went to Tivoli, did a city tour and a canal tour, it was wonderful.
