The departure port for Hurtigruten’s MS Polarlys is Bergen and we enjoyed the lights of the city as we left.

The first stop on the journey north is Ålesund. The night before had been a bit up and down as Storm Dennis stirred us up on the open sea passage as we left the fjord and we left the ship in the morning to grey skies and sleet. One of only a couple of poor days on our trip.
