Arctic Circle Cruise Days 7-9: Molde & Geiranger

View over Molde

Day 7 was an another "at-sea day and we arrived in the town of Molde, known as the "city of roses" early in the morning of Day 8. Unfortunately, the norovirus hit me on night 6 of the cruise so I was down for the count for this part of the trip. Luckily, Mark took over camera duties! We didn't have any excursions planned for this town, so Mark and his dad Jeff decided to head off for a hike, and Anne and Sue went for a walk in town.

Kayaking around the fjord!

Day 9 brought us to the town of Geiranger which sits in one of Norway's most famous fjords. Its beautiful waterfalls are a sight to be seen! The Seven Sisters waterfall spills hundreds of thousands of gallons of water from 5,000 feet. Mark and Jeff went on a morning excursion to check out the waterfalls in an RIB and again in the afternoon in a double kayak! In the evening, our whole party gathered up on the top deck of the ship to view the waterfalls up close as we departed the fjord.
