Celebrity Eclipse Postcard #12 – Copenhagen, Denmark

After spending the afternoon snoozing in the cabin, we made our way to the Senior Officers Party which was held in the Sky Lounge. It only lasts for 45 minutes but does provide a free bar. You are introduced to all the senior officers one by one then followed by a short speech by the Captain. I think the timing is so that both fixed diners are able to attend although it did make us 10 minutes late at the table.

Last nights show in the theatre, Jayne Curry we again found very entertaining but not a great deal of new material so most of what she did we had seen before. Still very watchable and good fun.
Strange arrival time of 11:00am into Copenhagen this morning and it was a port where we had nothing planned and were going to wing it. Due to the arrival time it allowed us time to go for breakfast in the Tuscan Grille which is also where we will be eating tonight. It was again nice to have a bit of a lie in too although we will have two more days like that following this one.

Once clearance to go ashore was granted the mad stampede began with what seemed like the whole ship wanting to get off at the same time. We just opted to use the ships shuttle which dropped us off in the centre of town where it was just a short walk to Nyhavn where we took a canal boat trip round the waterways of Copenhagen. It cost 80DKK per person and we were given a live guided talk all the way round. It was an excellent way to spend just over an hour and even the sun came out to play.

Part of the tour includes a view of everyone having their photo taken with the Little Mermaid.

Once back we had a spot of lunch along the quayside which was absolutely delicious, between us we sampled herring, moulds, frites & mayo along with potatoes and bacon. Not the cheapest lunch but really tasty.

To walk it off we took a stroll to Rosenberg Slot before making our way back to the shuttle and then the ship. After parting company with the less sprightly, we made the short walk up the Little Mermaid to get a photo from the front.

Back to the ship to unwind with a few drinks before dinner in Tuscan Grille tonight.
We have had a really nice day for our last port of call. All of a sudden the cruise seems to have gone really quickly.
