Following the Progress of the Ocean Princess

Five of us sailed last year at this same time with the Tahitian Princess. We traveled on exactly the same itinerary that she is on now. Her name has since been changed to the Ocean Princess. I am sure the captain still refers to her as his "Beautiful White Lady". We five met on this ship, and enjoyed it so much, we decided to sail from Dover on June 25th across the North Atlantic to New York City -- AND return, a 36-day voyage.

In actual time, the ship has left Murmansk, and will sail down the coast of Norway, stopping at the Lofoten Islands, the city of Trondheim, Hellesylt (in the Geirangerfjord), and finally, Bergen, before sailing into Dover, England, early on the morning of June 25th. Don't you love the Web Cam today--all that ocean ahead!

I will continue to post a few photos from the sailing we were on last year, so that you can better understand the routing of the ship before we join her in Dover next week.
