    That's magnificent, pakarang, a completely different view of her and the city that you've been able to capture in glorious weather.
    She will call back in Trondheim next Saturday, but she won't be along the coast at all next year, as she is spending more time in the Faroes and Iceland.

    Today, a 59 year old girl came back to her birth-town, Trondheim, Norway: 60 years ago, construction started on this beautiful vessel at Trondheim, and next year, it'll be 60 years since she started her career.

    I hope she will be in Trondheim on that very special day, in June 2020, on her 60th birthday, and that the city has some decency to show some respect for this ship on the day.

    The ship looks so great from any angle she is seen, and so perfectly suited to her way of cruising where no mega-liners can go, with guests that have a genuine interest in the true feeling and history of a port or destination.

    Could help but notice the shy seagull hiding just behind the pier, away from Serenissima's reach.

    The old Harald Jahl design is still evident but she does look lovely and elegant.

    I'll have photos in the "Postcards" thread at some point, but you get a preview of Bantry House gardens as they afforded lovely views of Serenissima at anchor.



    View looking over the East Stables.








    The north terrace




    My favourite photo. No need to take a selfie when this elegant lady and the ship can be pictured together!

    Here are two photos of Serenissima after lunch, taken from a zodiac.

    Did you notice that I hadn't actually mentioned an island in the day heading? Don’t worry ...our 'Island on the Edge' today will be visited on the morning excursion, but our excursion arrangements, and even the name of the island itself, need explaining!

    I think of it as Garnish Island. but it is sometimes spelt Garinish Island. The latter name is derived from the Irish spelling Garinis, without the h, which means 'the near island'.
    The island was also known in Irish as Oileán an Chulinn which means 'island of the holly'. This is variously anglisised as Ilnacullin or Illaunacullin.

    However ...there is also a Garinish Island in County Kerry! So in order to distinguish our island in County Cork from that County Kerry one, the Office of Public Works, who now maintain the gardens on the island, use the name Ilnacullin




    Previously it had been possible to anchor in Glengarriff Bay, a part of Bantry Bay, and land zodiacs directly at Garnish Island itself, but now they, understandably, want to support local business. So Serenissima anchored off Bantry and we tendered in our zodiacs to the pier there where local coaches awaited. .



    You can see where Serenissima anchored at the bottom of this map. The red line is my actual GPS track of the whole morning! The pleasant twenty minute drive around the bay took us to Glengarriff where a local boat awaited us at the pier to take us to the island. We were given a map and were free to wander and explore individually.There was also a café at the landing place.



    Returning to Bantry I decided to have lunch on the ship. The coaches were utilised again in the afternoon to take those wishing to join the conducted tour of Bantry House the very short distance there - thus ensuring we were all together at the pre-arranged time. I also took the bus back after spending longer in the gardens, but one could walk back to the pier. Others chose to spend time in the town of Bantry. So the arrangements for the day allowed for many variations and options and actually worked very well.

    During breakfast, the zodiacs had been launched and we were soon ready to go ashore.

    Islands on the Edge - Day 4 - 6th May 2019 - Bantry Bay, County Cork, Ireland

    Despite the unseasonal and variable weather in the south of England, it had been a smooth overnight crossing to Ireland.




    It was even calmer in the sheltered waters of Bantry Bay where the ship anchored. Out on Serenissima's deck that early morning the quiet soft calm felt truly serene.

    Bergens Tidende reported about the reasons, but behind a paywall. Unfortunately no second source was available.

    Without any speculations in any way, but when a ship is held back in "arrest" by NAMSMANNEN (bailiff?) it would most likely mean there is some bills that haven't been paid: docking, port charges, fuel or stores. When ITF requests an arrest in the ship, it has likely to do with crew salaries.

    In this instance, for whatever reason the ship was held back, the matter has been settled and the ship is back in service. And that's really good to hear!
