Great to hear that you've got things sorted out, did you go completely crazy listening to the 'on hold' music

I really think that the cruise lines have missed a trick in not using their own tenders to run trips up & down the Fjords, surely the boats can't be that dirty as to be an environmental issue.

It is great to see the Fjords from the deck, but must be awesome to view from that low down, looking up at the sheer walls of the Fjords.

Am trying to remember, but am fairly certain that it's Geiranger, where you want to be on the starboard side of the ship as you sail out, as they fire a small 'cannon' to salute you leaving, to which the ships will then reply with their horn/whistle. A very nice start to the sail back down the Fjord.

Fingers crossed for a change in the weather or we'll all be frozen but still wearing sunglassses ....
