Norwegian Fjords Cruise – Stavanger

Our final port of call was the city of Stavanger. Located on the southwestern corner of Norway the cruise ships are able to dock right in the city centre. 

We headed into the heart of the city centre with its cobble streets and well known shops. We then happened to stumble upon Øvre Holmegate. A quirky street, lined with bright coloured buildings, consisting mainly of bars and cafes. We decided to stop for a coffee at the colourful Hanekan. The weather was beautiful so we made the most of it and sat outside. 

We then took a steady walk back down towards the port taking advantage of the great view of the ship and found a pub with seats outside. 

The Hanson Hjørnet had a fabulous atmosphere but like most places in Norway the drinks were very expensive. 6 beers came to nearly £50. That being said as it was our last port of call we had another and got some nachos to share. 

Afterwards it was a quick stop for postcards and it was back to the ship for a swim. Another fabulous day was had.
