    Thank you all! Fantastic support on here, and I'm grateful to every one of you :kisses3:

    Norway should be booked later on this morning - and I've been out at the front of the house this morning, sawing down two fence panels that had keeled over in Storm Eleanor :eek: I have some way to go to catch up on the maintenance of my property. Nor did I look at the accounts - I caught up on James Bond instead :p but must do better. Flying fence panels are not a thing I want in my life ...

    Meanwhile, my phone is pootling away happily watching SB.

    Laterz! :kisses3:

    Hi greent, thank you! We get such good reports of Norway, I'm sure it will be brilliant.

    And it's booked! Took quite a few hours, there are so many options - type of cabin, which is minor compared to all the "what excursions shall we do". Three of the ports of call are at the very northern tip of Norway :) a teensy bit further north than Murmansk. The average high is today's temperature, in June. I have warm clothing, but not much waterproof clothing ... no new swimsuits needed, but definitely rainwear :)

    Now to eat something ...

    You've booked, how exciting !! :T

    In June, you could have almost any sort of weather, so layers are the way to go. If you have any stops in the south of Norway it could be surprisingly warm.

    Is it this June? I hope so, as I cant wait to hear what you think of cruising.
