Some say the Europa 2 would be the best cruise ship in the world. I'm anything but an expert because I've never been on one before. But even without Crusader experience, and even though I subtract the almost universal transfiguration of my mind from Elysian refreshments of high volume of alcohol from this journey, I can hardly imagine a more enjoyable way to get from Iceland to Greenland.
When I entered this ship, I was still firmly convinced that the reason for my journey was to see Greenland - a long-cherished dream. Then came the waffles. With hot cherries. Then the casual, but excellent dinner. Wine. Icebergs swam in my long drink. Finally I was able to get rid of the absurd idea - now in the salon with one, two gin among like-minded people - luxury would be unnecessary.
In the first light of the morning, the coast of Greenland appeared. My God, what a luxury to see such a thing! Spectacular. Pass through the Prins-Christian-Sound in glorious sunshine. By the way: Also wonderful to enjoy from the sauna deck. (Note from the editor .: Does a wink smiley have to go there?)
Icebergs! Ilulissat is the third largest city in Greenland with 4491 inhabitants . It is located on the Disko Bay and is obviously the party capital of the island.
I disembarked in Illulisat while the MS Europa 2 traveled to Canada . I would like to enjoy once again the exquisite Chateaubriand. Well, I'll have to return for that. Cheers!
Oh: Do you already know the video with the dramatic music?
Many thanks to Hapag LLoyd Cruises for the invitation!
