What a nice day we had yesterday on the Faroes. All passengers loved the stay and the activities, specially those who had the wonderful boat trip to the Vestmanna Bird Cliffs.
After leaving the port of Torshavn, the captain brought the ship to the narrow magnificent sunds with high and step mountains in the northern part of the Faroes. Around 7.30 p.m we reached the Cape Enniberg, which is the second highest sea-cliff in Europe after Hornelen, in Norway. During the famous fashion show in the observation lounge we could see the beautiful high cliffs of the Faroe Islands for hours on our way to Iceland .
A day at sea, good time to relax after powerful days. But also good time for the multiple activities aboard.
Our lectures are busy preparing and doing their lessons. So we learned from Friederike about the
Atlantic-History. Or one could attend a humorous lecture by Klaus, about Iceland and the Islanders.
And the third lecture was about Iceland today after the crisis 2008 by Sabine. Last not least Anja
was given interesting informations to the excursions in Greenland. In the afternoon our bartenders in the
panorama lounge lured us with freshly waffles added with music in the air from our famous pianoman
Antonio. But not enough, after Dinner there was movie-time with a documentary about the poles.
The wonderful seaday ended with a radio-feature on the icelandic novel "Bankster"enjoying the
