  1. Bakkagerdiskirkja The painting portrays Christ delivering the Sermon on the Mount in Iceland Bird stop Icelandic Horses
  2. We really loved our aft wrap balcony in our Neptune suite on the Zuiderdam
  3. The best place that we saw puffins was in # 1 Seydisfjordur Iceland , #2 Lerwick , Shetland Islands and # 3 Reykjavik . In Reykjavik there is an island about a mile or 2 from the cruise port where we went . We went on a windy bumpy day and it was hard to get close to the island to get a good shot . The other 2 sites were on land .
  4. I used a canon D 6 with a 70-300 lens. Not sure about the settings as I usually bracket the shots .
  5. From our eye in the sky perch we could see the green life jackets on the Promenade deck preparing the next cruise for the safety drill The Costa Favolosa was out the port before the Zaandam Away she goes on her next adventure in Antarctica

  7. Puffin community This would fit in where we live The only bathrooms that we saw were the Porta Potty at the Marina
  8. We were planning to go to the mall for some shopping and then have lunch but we saw some fast moving clouds that made us wait for a little . Here's the mall that we went to Galerias Pacifico They have some interesting paintings on the ceilings and a great Christmas tree

  10. We didn't didn't think of our balcony as a necessity or a luxury but more as a convenience . Food , warmth , a drink or a bathroom was a door away . BTW you can't eat or drink on the balcony in Antarctic waters . We spent most of our time on the balcony looking for whales , penguins , orca and beautiful scenery like glaciers , icebergs and mountains . Many times we spotted wildlife that the bridge didn't see and to try to gear up and run up or down stairs you may miss . We kept our cameras outside since they would fog up if you took them from a warm room to the cold . We would recommend the Glacier Alley side . Glacier Italia Romanche Alemania glacier
  11. Thank you . We asked the hotel to have a cab meet us at an appointed time and he was waiting when we came down . Enjoy your trip . 😊
  12. While eating breakfast in the lounge we saw MSC ship pulling into port. It backed in near the Zaandam who had spent the night In the front of the hotel were a number of flags . Conspicuously absent were the British and American flags

  14. Christian shared a number of facts about puffins similar to this site https://projectpuffin.audubon.org/birds/puffin-faqs Some puffin couples
  15. The building was all lit up and we remembered that on a previous trip to BA we had a large power failure . It was pretty hot until the AC kicked on at 2 AM . We wanted to take some photos of the tower and the hotel from across the street A young man approached us and said " English not so good , not good to be in park with camera at night " . We thanked him in Spanish and heeded his warning . These were taken from the property - up close . A new day dawning

  17. In this photo you can see our hotel , the English Tower and the port in the distance We had a key to the Executive Lounge with had breakfast and snacks throughout the day . The had free wine in the evenings . It has a great view of the park and downtown We were told that the train tracks separate the downtown area from the poor area

  19. This giant egg sculpture was near the park . It's called Nosotros Afuera , which means We, the outsiders It was lunch time and we were headed to an Irish Pub a few blocks away We had our hearts set on some fish and chips and a pint which we had missed in the Falklands But they were not on the menu and the server was unfamiliar with them . So I had a Chicken Cordon Blue And DW had a St. Killian's
