Tight squeeze in Stavanger

/, Cruise Ships/Tight squeeze in Stavanger

sa_webcam_12.jpgWhen the cruise ships Grand Princess and P&O’s Azura were together in port at Southampton on Saturday there was plenty of room for both – and Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas as well.
Azura was embarking 3,000 passengers at Ocean Terminal, while a mile away at the Mayflower Terminal the newly-refurbished Grand Princess was welcoming another 2,600 or so.
Today the two ships – and their passengers – are jostling for space in the Norwegian port of Stavanger (above). I hope the cloudy skies are not putting people off taking a boat trip along Lysefjord to see the spectacular Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock.

    Hate to say it but your really have to hike Pulpit Rock to enjoy its spectacular nature, as you can’t really see anything much from the Fjord below.
