Boarding the Kong Harald in Bergen

We woke to rain, which we have been told is pretty normal in Bergen. Yesterday’s sunshine was a delightful way to be introduced to the city. It was so very wet and cold that we stayed indoors most of the morning, enjoying a delightful breakfast and reading up on the parts of Norway we are about to visit. We boarded at 4pm. Very efficient as one would expect, and were soon exploring the ship. Turning a corner on the upper deck it was delightful to come across a rack of fish drying!! We set sail at 10.30 p.m. after an excellent buffet in the dining room that included local fish and meats. The Hurtigruten line includes food from local suppliers in all its menus.
