Follow me on Eurodam

//Follow me on Eurodam

IMG_5310.jpgRather than sitting here writing this, I should be packing – although to be honest, I should have done that last night. Because very soon I will be setting off to drive to Dover, where I will be boarding Holland America’s Eurodam for an interesting 12-day cruise.
First stop Copenhagen, where I am planning to take a tour of Rosenborg Castle, then it’s on to Oslo for an overnight stay in port. Kristiansand is next on the itinerary – remind me to check for scratches on the quayside after Oriana’s close encounter.
Next Thursday I will be listening to the music of Edvard Grieg and admiring the restored Fantoft stave church on a visit to Bergen.
Then it’s back across the North Sea to Invergordon, where I have booked a hire car so I can spend the day at Chanonry Point, looking out for the Moray Firth dolphins (above). Hope the tides – and the weather – are favourable.
Eurodam then sets off for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, from where I will be taking a trip to the Beamish open-air museum of Victorian working life, and the following day we will be heading back to Scotland. (Whatever happened to fuel-saving itineraries, I wonder?)
A friend has arranged a tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia at Leith, and I have a suspicion we may be enjoying a liquid lunch before returning to Eurodam to sail back to Dover.
Internet access permitting, I will be keeping you up to date with my exploits, and with what’s happening elsewhere in the world of cruises and cruise ships.
Come back soon.
