Norway Cruises Restricted After 2025

Following on from my recent blog on Cruising and my love of Norway, particularly the Norwegian Fjords.

I hadn’t realised at the time, after 2025 Norway will be “Restricting” Cruise Ships from their UNESCO Fjords (Protected World Heritage sites). This includes the stunningly beautiful Aurlandsfjord, Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord.

I absolutely understand this, the Norwegian Fjords are beautiful places that need to be protected and respected.

From what I’ve read, some cruise lines are exploring the ability to switch to electric power whilst navigating the Fjords, which may allow a limited number of trips to continue. There are already smaller electric boats that offer this, but nothing cruise ship size. Even if they could be made zero emissions, it’s still a large amount of people arriving and exploring these destinations so it would only solve part of the problem.

It will be interesting to see if the restrictions come imto effect and if so, how the cruising industry adapts.

In my personal opinion trips to locations like this, Alaska is another example are likely to be much less frequent in the next decade or so.

I am privileged to have been able to experience some of the breathtaking Norwegian landscapes

Remember These?! - Mobile Phone Nostalgia

Writing this post is probably going to make me feel old. (Amended slightly to correct the timeline) I’m in the middle of a “Digital Clean Up” (it’s not even spring), going through all my old backups, re organising and getting rid of anything I don’t need. As I scrolled through old files, I found the following picture, 4 of my old mobile phones, or cellphones if you prefer. This brought back some instant memories of where it all started.

I’m pretty impressed that I got this so well lined up. Normally it would be going half way around the edge and the top.

It’s always the last present you wrap that’s the best.
