Patricia...Thank you for your comments. In our type of suite there are two TV's. One is located on the wall near the round table and the other is by the foot of the bed and can be raised to watch the TV or lowered into the cabinet when not in use. This allows someone to watch TV in bed if they so choose.
Before sail away. Please turn on your volume.
These are the Waterside Dinner menus where we dined.
We had four courses courses:
An amazing Scallop Appetizer, Salad, Char Seafood and we shared one Crab Cake, and Peach Melba for Anne Marie and Cheese for Keith.
Additional interior ships photos. These are from the deck above us which is Deck 9 and include Palm Court which is a beautiful lounge used for evening entertainment, and enjoying scenic views. The Expedition Lounge is also on this Deck where you can chat with member of the Expedition Team in the evening.
An adjustment we have made is getting used to very little information provided hard copy. For example, on the Ocean Vessels the daily Program Reflections was provided hard copy but on Endeavor the daily activities program is provided electronically and you can view it on the iPad provided in each suite and/or on your own devices. You just need to remember to look at it to see what is planned for the day. This is an example of today's daily activities program.
We began the day with exercise for Keith and he also did laundry in between the workout.
Some views of Isafjordur.
Enjoyed breakfast in our suite and got ready for our excursion.
Another cruise ship is here and that is one of the Viking Ocean ships.
Initially, we signed up for the Dynjandi Waterfall which involves a hike. We thought once you get over to the Isafjordur Island you begin your hike. However, we learned yesterday the excursion includes a 45 minute bus ride in each direction. We didn't want to push our luck being in a bus with 20+ people (that is how they load each bus) so in lieu of this tour we saw Excursion Manager Eva-Linn who signed us up for a 90 minute Zodiac Cruise. This way we could be outside.
We arrived to the Crystal Cove 15 minutes before the start of the tour as requested. When it was time to go we went down one deck to the area where we went to our assigned locker to each put on our vests for the Zodiac. There was no need to put on the boots as we were not making a landing.
Everything was very well organized. The zodiac driver assisted us getting into the zodiac. Upon our return one of two crew members assisted us getting out at the tender/zodiac landing.
The excursion ended up lasting two hours which was great. It drizzled most of the time but not an issue with the waterproof jacket Crystal provided and our waterproof pants and hiking shoes.
Our driver was wonderful. Born in Australia and spending many years in this field he provided so much information about Whales from around the world including Iceland. We have so many take aways from today and one of them is how little was known about Orcas and other Whale until the mid-1970's.
We saw some wildlife including seals but the ones we saw tended to stay a good distance from the zodiac so we don't have any photos to share of them.
We enjoyed lunch in the suite and beautiful views from the ship. We then visited Vigur Island.
We are having such a wonderful time.
Anne Marie & Keith
