Spent the day at the cruise show and really enjoyed it. However this in a large measure was due to meeting up with friends and contacts. One thing I really did enjoy was the talk given by the lecturer who accompanies certain voyages of Hurtigruten. He spoke for about 35 minutes on the Northern Lights. A really interesting talk.
