This city in the south of Norway is a popular port of call on cruises to the Norwegian fjords. Ships dock in Old Stavanger, a classic seaport that once thrived on shipbuilding and fish canneries (and, most recently, offshore oil). The harbor is chockablock with boats and wooden homes once occupied by ship captains and tradesmen. These buildings now house museums, galleries, and cafés. If you don’t sign up for an excursion, you can easily explore the Old Town on foot.
