Ahh.. That's a shame, but there's always another time! Looking forward to see all those birds, dolphins and (fingers crossed) whales :)

No, we're not unfortunately :( We're just going to dip into Skagerrak Strait and go out around the tip of Norway. But we're supposed to be there within the next 10 days!
