Up at 5:15am for a morning walk culminating on being the only person on the sundeck watching us cruise among the many islands as we approach Copenhagen. I wonder what today will bring.
Our ship has docked a few hundred yards from the famous “Little Mermaid” statue on the water, so I take a picture of her to show everyone.
OK, just as I was about to take the picture four or five busloads of passengers from the other four cruise ships unloaded all at once. She's there – trust me.
We decided to get on the hop-on hop-off bus tour of the city, but after waiting through two fully loaded buses, we walked back to our ship and caught our free shuttle to the middle of the city. I think much of the crowd was from that “other ship” berthed next to us (that ship had 3500 passengers which made our ship and its 700 guests looks like a dinghy – seriously). Anyway, we were able to catch a hop-on hop-off tour from city center which took us around, stopping at the “Little Mermaid” statue again.
(real picture of the mermaid supposed to be here but having difficulty uploading - satellite connection issue?)
Then on to the Rosenborg palace to see the royal treasure and residence. The Treasury was in the basement, and the residence the main and upper two floors. The highlight of the day brought giggles to all who ventured into the room. It looked so formal, with beautiful floor to ceiling tile.

Tomorrow is another sea day and another time zone change as we sail to Helsinki. Claudia teaches her classes again and there will be speakers, movies, and shows throughout the day, with the Grand Buffet and formal wear in the evening. We'll be busy...
