Cruise ship passengers like Birgit and Lothar from Germany, who are already on their tenth journey, are convinced.

“Travelling by cruise ship is the perfect way to do a journey,” they told The Foreigner.

Ada and Jeff from Hong Kong are also amazed by Stavanger’s old part of town known as Gamle Stavanger. The first thing they associate with Stavanger is oil.

“Too expensive,” they said about the second thing.

Their journey started in Denmark and will finish in the United Kingdom, but they still want to come back to Norway.

On the opposite side of the cruise market are Italian tourist guide Raffaella, and Mataus, a student of the University of Stavanger. Their job starts when the passengers relax.

Raffaella is in charge of tickets and excursions reservations aboard the Costa Luminosa. She then accompanies sightseers on their tours.

Monday saw her first day in Stavanger. She is impressed by the short nights and has already learned “takk”, one of the most important Norwegian words, meaning “thanks”.

Mataus stands just a few ships away, next to the Saga Pearl 2. He is working for a security company during his semester break, watching the port and the passengers.

What are your hopes for this season?                                      

“I hope that everything goes according to plan and that nobody loses a finger as happened a few years ago,” he commented, but most importantly “that everyone enjoys Stavanger, of course.”
