Plans are underway for our Northern Atlantic cruise on the Emerald Princess

 

It is always exciting preparing for a cruise and I am in that process now.

We are going to sail on a repositioning cruise of the Emerald Princess, from Copenhagen to Ft. Lauderdale, beginning Sept. 11. We only booked the cruise a couple of weeks ago so we have been busy firming up the details.

On Sept. 8, we will fly from Detroit to Copenhagen via Delta/KLM. I booked the one-way transatlantic ticket through Airfare.com, a consolidator that often offers prices way below what the airlines quote…particularly for one-way flights. And in this case, even though the flight is operated by Delta, the KLM price was much lower.

We are going in a few days early so we can see the Danish capital which we have not visited before. We have already arranged for Copenhagen Cards, which will get us on all public transportation and into many museums. We are going to stay at the centrally located Hotel Kong Arthur (“kong” is Danish for “king”).

Then on Sept. 11 we board the Emerald Princess and sail for 18 days across the North Atlantic, a route we have never taken before. We have taken two previous repositioning cruises, but both were on the southern route. This trip offers many new ports for us. We were particularly interested in Iceland and Greenland. Even though our stays are quite short, at least we will get a taste of these countries.

Princess has sent us several emails in advance of the cruise and they are very helpful. One, in particular, directed us to a Facebook page where I can interact with other people going on the cruise. It is very nifty.
