Last night we did the Glasshouse food and wine pairing meal. It costs £30 per head, but we think it’s good value because it includes five glasses of selected wines (of varying sizes). To be honest we did it last year on Azura, but we enjoyed it so much – both the wines and the […]

Britannia docked in Bergen at 11:45, and shortly after that we went for some lunch. We decided to try the Grab and Go offering; we ended up having burger and chips. Val’s comment was “there’s things to be said for McDonalds after all”. We collected our shuttlebus ticket at just after half-past twelve and then […]

It’s 9:45 on day 2 of our cruise to the Fjords on Britannia and everyone is ready to get ashore and stretch their legs. Frustratingly, however, we won’t actually berth in Bergen until about 11:45, nearly 3 hours later than the original timetable and also later than was announced yesterday. Continuing headwinds overnight are to […]

Britannia 2016 – Still tied up

We were supposed to have the muster drill at 4:15 and be away at 4:30, but neither has happened yet. At about 4:10 there was a terse announcement by the officer of the watch to say that the drill was postponed, but no mention of a new time. Captain Brown has just (4:40) made an […]

Britannia 2016 – Embarcation

We’ve embarked. We rocked up to the Ocean Terminal at about 11:15 intending to drop our bags off and then drive away. In the event we were told that it would be OK to check in early, so we decided we’d do so. We got into the terminal at about 11:45 and were given a […]
