OSLOFJORD at Funchal

The Norwegian America Line passenger liner and cruise ship OSLOFJORD (1949-1970) was a frequent visitor to Madeira while on cruises.
This handsome ship was the early prototype of today's SAGA CRUISES near sisters SAGA ROSE (ex-SAGAFJORD) and SAGA RUBY (ex-VISTAFJORD) as the first of four passenger ships built to the order of NAL after WW2.
She was followed by the BERGENSFJORD of 1956, and then the SAGAFJORD in 1965 and the VISTAFJORD in 1973.
