In Reykjavik we said farewell to our lovely participants on our Greenland voyage and hello to a full ship of Chinese Climate Cruiser’s. What an atmosphere, a new adventure started today. Excited and ready we begin this new experience. After the initial tour of the ship the guests were met by the team of officers in the panorama lounge. The captain and his crew held an informative and moving welcome speech.

After their talk the expedition crew was introduced. Long laughs were heard when the new guests heard the expedition team had learned the Chinese words for “Hi” “Welcome” “Polar bear” and “whale”.
We all enjoyed a lovely buffet in the restaurant and as the gorgeous view of Iceland’s landscape slowly drifted past us, whales and dophins were seen in the distant horizon. We all felt very much at home onboard this beautiful ship. Next stop: Jan Mayen.
