The sun setting over the North Sea


I landed in Copenhagen rather early in the morning and transferred directly from the airport to the docks, where our ship, the Eurodam, was moored. I spent the morning waiting to board, and the better part of the afternoon acclimating myself aboard what is certainly the largest cruise ship I have encountered. I have mixed feelings about sailing on a ship of such cumbersome size; there are too many people aboard, and throughout the journey, this made me feel a bit lost and overwhelmed. In contrast, the ports of call were often small and intimate, and I felt quite at home while on land.

Sailing out of Copenhagen under a late afternoon sun.

The next morning, we entered the Oslo fjord, landing around noon. Here is the ship, moored quayside in the Oslo harbour.
