This was my first cruise experience and I must admit that I never really thought they were my cup of tea - turns out I was right - however, it was a great way to see some many places that I otherwise probably never would have had the opportunity because of travel logistics, money, time, etc.
The seas were great, the cruise staff very wonderful, the sights amazing and our toddler AWFUL! For whatever reason Hannah did not eat or sleep well at all, which resulted in me feeling like a zombie. Many of the young children on the ship were having similar issues. She was a trooper when we really needed her to be and I am grateful for that much.
So we visited......
Bergen, Ålesund and Oslo Norway; Lerwick, Shetland Islands; Tórshavn, Faroe Islands; Reykjavík, Iceland; Helsingborg, Sweden; Copenhagen, Denmark.
Never in my life did I think that I'd ever get to see all these places. I'd really like to return to Denmark and Norway. All the ports were beautiful and interesting in their own regards.
