Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin:
The Magellan at Eidfjord
Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri.

Having previously done a Hurtigruten cruise, we wanted to try a “proper” cruise. That is one that has entertainment in the evening and I get to dress up a bit.

We chose CMV because they leave from ports in the North of England and we didn’t really fancy spending almost a full day just getting to Southampton to board a ship. Also the buy one, get one free offer seemed a really good deal to us.

We chose Norway again because it is such a beautiful country.

Cabin Review

Cabin 9

Plenty of room, cleaned twice daily, huge wardrobe space, compact bathroom, but good sized shower, comfy beds.

Port Reviews

Eidfjord

My mum went on the troll train, and really enjoyed it.

We walked alongside the river and around the village, so beautiful and peaceful.

Olden

We took the Panorama Tour to see the area surrounding Olden. Absolutely stunning scenery, and a good stop for tea and cake as well.

Bergen

Our second trip to Bergen. Very busy as it was their national day.

Loved looking around the Bryggen area with the old wooden buildings.

Good for souvenirs but very expensive.

Newcastle (England)

The Port of Tyne was absolutely brilliant both at the beginning and end of our holiday.

It was just so easy getting on board. We didn’t even have any passport checks at the end of the holiday, just got the coach to the car park and picked up our cases and off we went home.
