Booked and checked in for my first cruise of the year on Celebrity Apex.
Checked in for my flight to Amsterdam
Leaving on a jet plane (okay, so it is technically a “turbofan” engine and not a jet). I departed Houston this morning and flew to Amsterdam via Dallas on American Airlines.
I arrived in Amsterdam today and visited Zaans Schanse where there is a large group of windmills and historic buildings.
I visited the National Maritime museum and the National Holocaust memorial during my second day in Amsterdam.
Embarkation day for the Celebrity Apex
An entertaining day at sea on the Celebrity Apex
Today is the first stop of the cruise, in Ålesund, Norway. The weather was less than spectacular, it rained nearly the entire day and I had planned mostly outdoor activities (scenic viewpoint and the Sunnmøre open air museum)…
A nice day in Bergen. I started the day with a funicular ride to a viewpoint overlooking Bergen. I went to the Bergenhus Fortress and the UNESCO World Heritage site Bryggen.
Today is the most scenic day of the entire trip. The ship will sail into Geiranger through Geirangerfjord.
Today is the final port of call for the cruise. It’s hard to believe the cruise is almost over already. Today the ship visits Stavanger, Norway – the one place on the cruise I haven’t been to yet. I decided to walk over to the church (bad idea) then to the archeological museum. I still had some time left so I walked through the old town area over to some old mansions.
Today was the final full day of the cruise. I had yet to take advantage of the hot tub, so I made sure I experience them before the end of the day. I also utilized my martini tasting coupon in the Martini bar. I participated in the Escape Room and partied like it was 1999 with the silent disco to end the night.
End of the cruise. Time to leave and start another adventure
