Cruising toward Bergen
1.28.15 - 1.29.15 36 °F
Our last 24 hours on board was spent cruising southbound towards Bergen. The scenery was spectacular and you never seem to get tired of looking at a beautiful coastline.
All in all, the cruise was more than we expected in terms of scenery and enjoyment. The cabin was comfortable, only about 350 people on board primarily Norwegian, German and French and everyone enjoyed each other. The crew was exceptionally friendly and truly liked their work. Their schedule is roundtrips on and two roundtrips (22 days) off, year round. The get on and off the ship at whichever port is closest to their hometown, which makes life very good for them. This will not be my last trip on Hurtigruten - Spitzbergen and Antarctica (again) await.
