Departing Bergen with Hurtigruten

Starting Steve Newman's 'live' blog on the classic Norwegian coastal cruise with Hurtigruten:

Well here are departing Bergen on the MS Finnmarken, our home for the next five days. Bergen is an amazing city  and every time I come here I love it.

We shall be cruising up the Norwegian Coast on the Hurtigruten "Taxi" route, calling in at various ports with people getting on and off and cargo being loaded and unloaded.  Often called "The most beautiful cruise in the world," I can easily see why. I've done this before and am really looking forward to it again - especially if we see the Northern Lights further north!

Later today we're calling in at Alesund, a town renowned for its unique Art Nouveau architecture.
