Day 6 was another day at sea in the North Atlantic in transit to Paamuit, Greenland. It was a quiet day with a Whiskey tasting in the afternoon.
So far the seas have been calm, which has made the sea days a little less exciting.
Whiskey Legacy Tasting
The Whiskey Legacy Tasting was another premium tasting, this one cost USD50 per person. It is a Whiskey not a Whisky tasting as it was American Whiskey not a Scotch in sight (unfortunately, more on that shortly).
Our next few days were all at sea as we sailed the North Atlantic Ocean on route to Paamuit Greenland. This leaves me one more ocean to sail upon and I will have sailed all the World’s oceans. Can you guess which ocean I haven’t sailed yet?
The weather was mild and sunny, so a good day for a few laps of the deck before lunch! Not sure why the pool was emptied, but it did not look good today… A bit green.
One of the great things about sea days on Regent Seven Seas is that they usually schedule something interesting (well to me anyway) like a Connoisseur Wine Lunch. Today was one of those days.
After sailing 103 nautical miles (191Kms) from Dún Laoghaire we docked at Belfast Harbour in Northern Island on a very sunny and pleasant day. My day in Belfast was a full one starting with a visit to Titanic Belfast in the morning and then a pub crawl through downtown Belfast in the afternoon.
The view from my cabin
Titanic Belfast is a short drive from where the ship was docked through the industrial area surrounding the port. As you drive up the building that houses Titanic Belfast definitely makes an impact.
We arrived in at the port of Dún Laoghaire after our 420 nautical mile transit from Southampton on time on our second day.
I was surprised that we were not going to be docking at Dublin Port, today we would be transferred to the port using the ship’s tenders. The reason for this was that the Port of Dublin has been closed to Cruise Ships since the start of Brexit as the cargo traffic increased significantly and therefore the decision was that cargo was more important that tourism.
I am fine with tenders, though a number of other passengers were not as comfortable with them. Not sure if this meant that a number of passengers decided to stay onboard, the tender I was on was full.
Dublin Highlights Tour
I would post the tour description, but what is in the provided the materials was for a different tour that sounded like a combination of my morning tour and my afternoon tour.
My morning tour was about 4 hours in duration and was a coach trip around some of the historical landmarks of Dublin.
