After New York we had a busy day in Boston
After Trondheim we set sail for Alta missing out Tromso, then after some very rough seas the ship turned back and our visit to Alta was cancelled. Mid-afternoon a Norwegian Coastguard helicopter came and picked up an ill passenger.
Our next port of call was an unscheduled visit to Trondheim. Saga had added excursions and we visited the cathedral and the fortress for the first time.
After New York our next port of call was Newport RI where we ate at a diner for breakfast and walked around the town
On our last day we took the water taxi up the East River to take in the spectacular views. Our evening departure was delayed by the arrival of President Biden in New York.
On our second day in New York we visited both Liberty and Ellis islands catching the ferry from Battery Park
After visiting Stump Cross caverns we went to Grassington to explore the village and see the River Wharfe’s Linton Falls
This visit to Alesund was much earlier in the cruise than originally planned due to the bad weather behind us and ahead of us in the North
Our extra day in New York started early for me watching Sky Princess pass under the Narrows Bridge and then we had a short day in the city sight seeing in the rain
Seeing Stump Cross Caverns was too good an opportunity to miss as we went to Grassington
Early morning sailing under the Verranzzo-Narrows Bridge before docking in Brooklyn
