Of course our incoming guests had to fly from Kangerlussuaq to Nuuk too. Plane by plane passenger groups arrived through the late morning, afternoon and evening. Those guests that arrived early enough used their time to learn Nuuk, Greenland's very modern capital.
On our first evening on board we just got a quite busy program already. Safety drill, followed by our captains welcome cocktail, followed by a first information briefing done by our expedition leader. But there was time too when we could enjoy our first nice dinner buffet on board.
As everybody had a long travelling day to reach the largest island of the world most passengers went to bed early, looking forward and dreaming of a spectacular trip along the still icy coast of Greenland.
