Fjord Eyes Only

We've just returned from one of the most beautiful and scenic holidays I have ever had...cruising The Norwegian Fjords.
We sailed on the Queen Victoria, a member of the Cunard family.
Taking a baby on a cruise was a great idea - no chores to do, no washing to do, no meals to prepare, just 7 whole days to enjoy being a family.
Our first port was Bergen and we took a trip on the Fløibanen Funicular to experience the fantastic views (you can see the Queen Victoria bottom right)
We sampled the delights of the Fish Market
Second port was Andalsnes where we got ashore via the ship's tender
One man didn't seem too keen to see us...!
We then went on to Olden and saw it's beauty from an open top bus tour
We stopped mid tour to photograph the glacier down Olden Valley
Stavanger was our final port of call and it was hosting it's Gladmat food festival
It was our first cruise and it's safe to say we definitely now have the bug for it!
