I woke up at 5:30am to watch some of the scenery as we sailed through Oslofjord- this is a part of the world we’d never been to before and was something we had been told was stunning.
We didn’t have major plans for the day and so decided to walk round the town and to the sculpture park. Some beautiful buildings and gorgeous spring flowers made for a very pleasant stroll which also took in the royal palace where we saw the changing of the guard. It was surprising to us how close to the palace it’s possible to get when compared to Buckingham Palace.
We were back onboard mid afternoon and enjoyed a hot tub just to ourselves on deck 16.
After drying off we enjoyed a Rocky Road hot chocolate in the Cappuccino bar – these are included on all drinks packages including the Easy package.
We decided to have a go on one of the arcade games and raced each other on motorbikes. The arcade games are at a cost of €1.50.
We took part in the quiz – ‘name the bridge’ and have won two MSC branded bags.
Dinner in the main dining room was very nice, I opted for a smoked salmon timbale starter, risotto main and Bavarian cake dessert
As mentioned previously the evening’s entertainment was an ABBA tribute which we found very good. It’s a shame that many members of the audience didn’t seem too impressed and wouldn’t even clap along.
We ended the evening with a few drinks and have had a lazy morning for our sea day.
