We have arrived in London, and we were greeted with style by the Londoners! Passing Tower Bridge at 08:30 in the morning, thousands of onlookers were lining the quaysides to see the ship. We are now moored at Thames Quay in the South Dock in Canary Wharf, and will be open to visitors during the stopover.

Thank you Helsingborg!
Today, at 4pm, we left the beautiful city of Helsingborg after three wonderful and sunny days in port. We've had thousands of visitors, a great arrival ceremony, and business dinners and lunches on board during our stay. We have also greeted three watches of new deckhands on board, who will sail with us to Helsinki.

At arrival in Helsingborg, crowds on the quaysides greeted the ship, and an official ceremony was held, exchanging plaques, as the visit by Götheborg was the first official visit to Helsingborg. Thank you Port of Helsingborg and City of Helsingborg for inviting us!
In the following three days we greeted visitors on board the ship, and were very happy with the great reception from the people of Helsingborg. We even extended the number of tickets sold, and opened up for ticket sales for one more day than planned to meet the interest.
Yesterday, we changed deckhands on board, and greeted a new group of people who will sail with us on the next sailing legs. During out say, we've had many questions for the possibility to sail along. If you are interested, we still have spaces on the sailing leg from Helsinki end of June, and the sailing leg from Stockholm in mid July. Hope to see you on board!!
From Helsingborg we are now heading to Helsinki, Finland, where we arrive 23 June. The plan is to go via a direct route to Helsinki, past Bornholm, the southern tip of Öland and the coast of Gotland. Although this is the plan, we are dependent on weather and wind, so the route is subject ot change. You can always follow where we are on the map here.
Visit the ship in Helsinki 23–27 June
Three of the days of the Helsinki stopover, the ship will be open to visitors. Experience the ship, learn about her history and see her at her most beautiful. Don't miss out on this opportunity! Ticket sales will open shortly.
We are now headed for London, after four sunny and warm days in the Norwegian capital Oslo. Thank you Oslo for hosting us for a few days, and thank you to everyone who came and visited us. Oslo is the last stop in the Nordic countries before we head south on our great Asia Expedition 2022/2023.
We have arrived in Oslo, and are now moored at Vippetangen near Akershus Fortress. We are here until Sunday 31 July, and are open to visitors Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We look forward to greeting you on board!
