Bergen, Norway

4 out of 5
This was our 2nd visit here. We walked through Bryggen, round to the Ice Bar & Aquarium, we had great weather and had a ball. Bergen is lovely and there is so much to explore.

Alesund, Norway

We were here 2 years ago and it felt like the coldest place on earth then, what a difference the sun can make. It was a lovely town, we walked through it quite happily and changed our opinions entirely

Grundarfjordur, Iceland

Walked to Kirkjufellfoss, got sunburnt, had my feet stick to the tarmac on the road, a grey day had by all

Reykjavik, Iceland

4 out of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed Reykjavík, but it is expensive. Got on the hop on hop off bus and saw a fair bit of the town, probably the best advice I can give

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
No real problems, one of our bags was missing, but easily located by the port staff
