After 4 days at sea and 1,647 nautical miles (3050kms) we were able to go ashore in Greenland, Nuuk Greenland to be precise.
The weather was crisp, well when compared with Singapore it is, with bright clear blue skies, perfect for a day of touring.
A number of the passengers on board were itching to get ashore, seems 4 days onboard a luxury liner in calm seas is too much for some. Not sure what the problem was, we had not run out of food or booze and we all had suites with plenty of room, guess some people need more.
Paamiut was meant to be our first port of a call in Greenland, unfortunately, due to thick fog, we were not able to get to Paamiut. The fog would have also made it very unsafe for us to anchor and conduct transfers via tenders to shore.
Your eyes are not playing tricks this is how thick the fog wasfrom my balcony
So the decision was made for us to remain at sea and head for Nuuk Greenland.
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.
