Copenhagen / Cruise
Clear skies greeted us this morning but it was windy and quite cold in the shade. We were packed and checked out by 9am. We caught a bus into town to help fill in the morning. We had a coffee at McDonalds, one of the few establishments open before 10am. Yes, it’s true, Darlene inside a McDonalds store. After the coffee we browsed our way through a large department store called Magasin du Nord. We caught the bus back after that. I got off the bus a few stops early to post a card I prepared while Darlene browsed. Then I walked the rest of the way.
We waited in the hotel lobby a while and used the free internet to get up to date. They called a taxi for us and it was a short ride to the ship. It is a huge ship. Boarding procedures were fairly quick and we were on board the Royal Princess.
The ship is one year old and carries around 3500 passengers. Our cabin is comfortable and relatively spacious compared to some other ships. We had a late lunch in the buffet after boarding and did a bit of exploring. We took the opportunity of a relatively empty laundry to catch up on some washing. Darlene left me in charge of taking the clean clothes out of the washing machine and putting them into the dryer. Unfortunately I neglected to push the button to start the drying process. D’oh. We ate dinner late, went to a 10.15pm Welcome Aboard show in the main theatre and called it a night.
