Day 3

Stavanger, Norway
Arrive: 0830hrs Depart: 1400hrs Astoria's first port is the prosperous former Norwegian fishing capital, Stavanger. Here, sleek ultramodern buildings like the Stavanger Conert Hall and the Norwegian Petroleum Museum contrast sharply with the pretty white-painted, clapboard houses and cobbles of Stavanger old town.
