Norway, Costa Magica

This was our ship. We left later than planned due to a strong wind. All night and the greater part of the next day we sailed. We had plenty of time to explore the Costa Magica and we were able to make the acquantance of the other members of our group. Stavanger was the first stop where we could disembark and walk around for a couple hours.

 I remember the happy times we spent here with the children. We were invited by a Norwegian family whom we met in Rotterdam in the Norwegian church. This was long ago almost 48 years have past now.This family taught us to speak Norwegian.

Back on board we had to suffer "Sloepenrol" or "Lifeboat drill". It was rather funny actually, for my sister took her umbrella with her. I have the feeling that we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Oh, and yes my sister and I were the oldest members of the group, which was not always nice, for we were treated like invalids.

Your cruise mates did not know you very well or they would have known you were probably stronger and certainly smarter than any of them -- no need to treat you like an invalid ;>)... but I am sure they were doing it to be kind. It looks a beautiful ship!
