the ship offers quite some comfort, including two whirlpools in the arctic pool area on top of the ship. it’s quite fun to sit in the warm water while it’s cold and windy outside!
we left bergen on a late evening, when it was quite dark on the outside:
the next morning we landed in torvik, a little town on an island. also, for the first time on our stay in norway, the sun came out:
the view of the sea is gorgeous:
later the day, we had a longer stay in ålesund:
on early evening, we arrived in molde. there, we took a photo of our ship:
on the late evening, we visited kristiansund for a bit longer. there, we walked a bit around in the harbor:
somewhen later, there was an announcement on the ship that northern lights could be seen. when we reached the sun deck, we only saw the leftovers, which were essentially only visible by camera and very high sensitivity settings. here’s a photo of people waiting for the aurora to become stronger (again):
later in the night, while back in our cabin, i looked out of the window before going to bed, when i saw something which looked a bit like northern lights. i put on my clothes again and went outside, and there it was: an aurora! not very intense, but it was there, and for some moments even visible to the plain eye!
