This is it...

Here we go- Lisbon! And this means that our crossing is coming to an end. It has been a good one: most of the time there was sunshine, not too many waves. The Olympic Games have introduced a new winner- the GALLEY team and everyone on board is now not a newcomer anymore when crossing the equator again. Yes- we will not forget our certificates when we come on board the next time!

All cabins are ready and shiny and waiting for the new passengers, the vessel is ready to venture for the European expeditions!

Right in this moment, our chief purser Musti opens the gangway, the authorities are coming on board- Europe, here we come!

For the final introduction of a crew member- here is our Richard!
