janfred...hold onto that cruise thought.....We are considering a Norwegian fjord cruise up into and above the Arctic Circle and are very much researching the subject. Hence one of the main reasons for Our MSC cruise......MSC cruises the Fjords up into the Arctic Circle (There is a method to Our cruise addiction)...then too...MSC will likely be doing down to Rio from Miami....We find that equally exciting!! Yes indeed.....We love to plan (years in advance)and then do!!! MMMH! MMMH! MMMH! MMMH! MMMH!!!
