Stir crazy

Day 10 has perhaps been the most anti-climactic of the trip. Outside it has been grey, with either rain or wind-blown spume, and all three minor stops were cancelled because of high winds. We feel rather sorry for the folk (unknown in number) who boarded earlier intending to alight in Nesna, Sandnessjoen or Bronnoysund. There have been tannoy calls for them to come to reception to sort out travel arrangements to their intended destinations, which could involve quite lengthy car or bus journeys (or a long swim).

So tedious has on-board life been today that they put on a spontaneous showing of “The history of the Hurtigruten ships”. Life is desperate when that is the highlight of the day! People having been queueing for vials of hemlock (at inflated Norwegian prices).
