Sailing into Geirangerfjord, Norway on a cruise ship

Sailing into Geirangerfjord, Norway on a cruise ship
Time-lapse (40x real time) of the sail into the port of Geiranger, Norway onboard the cruise ship Marella Discovery.

Filming started in the Storfjorden fjord with a brief stop off at the small settlement of Hellesylt, Norway to allow our 200 odd guests going on an excursion to disembark, before continuing on into the Geirangerfjord, past the Seven Sisters and The Suitor waterfalls before turning and docking between mooring buoys at Geiranger.

Docking took some time as the ship has to be positioned exactly 40m ahead of the buoy astern to allow the “seawalk” to connect to the ship.
