An update from Captain Colm Ryan

After a restful leave I’m back at the helm. My first cruise after assuming command was a short trip to the low countries from Portsmouth. What a sight as we passed the HMS Queen Elizabeth into a calm Solent. We were blessed then for our Easter call to Ijmuiden and Antwerp with picture postcard weather. Guests were able to journey into the centre of Amsterdam and venture the short distance from our dock into the middle of downtown Antwerp.

Returning to Dover and establishing it as our home port for the summer of 2022, we then ventured to the Norwegian Fjords. Our stops in Bergen, Skjolden, Flam and Stavanger were quite literally stunning. It’s rare that you see a destination ‘as per the brochure’, but in Norway we had clear skies, calm wind and sunshine from morning to night. I took this photo of Skjolden where it’s difficult to tell reflection from actual.

Kind Regards
Captain Colm Ryan
