At 6 am the sun was streaming through our window as Aurora was heading towards the Oslo fjord.
By 8 am we were sailing up the fjord. On the starboard side I watched houses and moored boats pass by on the tree lined shore. This fjord did not have any steep rock sides but had more gentle tree lined slopes or hills.
Our Baltic cruise on P&O Aurora would take us to Poland, Lithuania, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Germany, Denmark and Norway.
On Friday the 26th May we were in Oslo.
Sailing up the fjord to Oslo
It was so quiet that out on the balcony I could hear gulls and even sometimes dogs barking as Aurora glided slowly by.
We passed lots of islands including this one.
Breakfast was in the Medina and I reverted to only having a cheese omelette preceded by orange segments and the daily smoothie. By the time we had finished breakfast Aurora was on her final approach into Oslo.
I went back to the cabin and picked up my camera and headed up to Deck 13 to see where we would dock.
On our right was the Opera House with the striking sloping roof. On our earlier visit to Oslo [link] we had walked on its roof.
On our left was the ferry port and dead ahead was the Central Railway Station. We watched as a ferry came into the port and docked behind Aurora.
Our breakfast companions were complaining about the P&O trips in St Petersburg. This was not a very positive table as everyone else joined in with the negativity. The main issue with the trips was not down to P&O but more their fellow passengers not coming back to the coaches at the set time.
After a quick stop at our cabin we left the ship. We picked up a map from the hop-on-hop-off bus vendors as we walked away from the ship towards the railway station.
