Day 4 – 8/30 – Copenhagen – Board Regal Princess
Our boarding time is 1:00pm, so after breakfast, we spent the morning re-packing luggage and lazing about. I returned the European electrical adapter that the hotel had been kind enough to loan me, to keep all of our electronics charged. After checking out we trolleyed the luggage outside and searched for a cab large enough for the luggage. We found one, loaded up, and headed to the port, about five miles out of town.
I was apprehensive about what we might face going through embarkation with 3,500 other passengers, but it went extremely smoothly. On board we found our cabin and dumped our carry on stuff, then set out to explore the ship.
This is a massive ship – perhaps 5 times the size of the ones we have been taking on the world cruises. It has 3500 passengers, compared to 600 on our last cruise and 1000 on the one before that.

This is a part of the upper deck that arches out over the ocean and has glass panels open to the sea, sixteen floors below.
The theater for movies under the stars.
As we sailed out of Copenhagen, about 6 pm, we passed this island fortress, obviously from times past.
Bon Voyage from the balcony.
On to Oslo tomorrow.
