Day Four to Norway with Fred Olsen

Steve Newman continues his impressive voyage from Liverpool to Norway with Fred Olsen Cruises...

Well that has to be one of the most impressive things I have ever seen. The day of our visit here in Bergen was National Day in Norway and 90 per cent of the women dressed up in fabulous traditional dresses. 

The parade went on for two hours, with masses of red Norwegian flags and people wearing their national costume with immense pride.

We also took in the famous fish market and the harbour but, as we had decided to take the excursion tomorrow around the city, we went back to the ship for lunch. 

We watched the fireworks in the evening from the Sun Deck and they were superb, as was our meal. Once again, the quality of the meal, and the wines to go with it, were spot on. Definitely a recurring theme!

More tomorrow...
