Kristiansand

Saga Sapphire blog - Captains' blogs

7th October, 2019

We were greeted into Kristiansand by the Moose on a Pallet who seemed glad to see us again!

Designed and laid out by King Christian IV in 1641, Kristiansand has a network of distinctive right-angled streets laid out in a quadrant plan. The oldest part of the town, Posebyen, is home to rows of charming white-painted wooden houses.

We arrived on time and we docked at the new cruise pier #10. The weather was a bit cold and windy, but with clear skies. We were within walking distance of the town, but there was also a shuttle on for those less able to walk.

All the tours ran on time. The locals had organised an organ recital in the church which many of the passengers attended.

We left on time for our run back to Dover, and as we left the berth, the Moose was put back into the warehouse to await the next cruise ship.
