I’m time-jumping a bit in this report. If you’re wondering what happened to Saturday, May 16th, here’s the lowdown: the small press group I was a part of disembarked the ship. We then spent the day exploring Norway and Bergen. Boringly, we went to bed early – and slept in late. Today is, after all, going to be a very big day.

You can read all about my journey through Bergen from the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Bergen through the streets of Bergen on the morning of Norwegian Constitution Day as a prelude to the christening of Viking CruisesViking Star by clicking here. I’d posted it early in the afternoon because of how symbolic it was to have Viking Star and the former Royal Viking Star (now Black Watch) in port on the same day.
