We board our Norwegian cruise today. The lovely picture is a graphic done by a fellow passenger, Fiona, who’s a university student from Canada.
Folks have asked about our itinerary, so here goes:
Away we sail on the Norwegian Spirit
My heart beats faster as I near it.
Wave goodbye to Stockholm, Sweden,
Green in August as the Garden of Eden.
At night we cross the sea so inky
To land at dawn in fair Helsinki.
Then on we sail the salty sweet
And spend our two days in St. Pete.
Stars will sing their great euphonia
As we pull into old Estonia.
I’m sure that it will intrigue ya
To know we dock next in lovely Riga.
All the while there’ll be a mania
For our stop in Lithuania.
We’ll see the highland and the lowland
In that storied nation, Poland.
The next port will knock our socks off;
We’ve heard great things about old Rostoc!
It’s hard to describe with just a pen mark
The delights of lovely Denmark.
Fun awaits one-, two-, three-, and four-way
When we dock in Oslo, Norway
Tulips, windmills, Delft, and such,
Wait for us in the land of the Dutch.
But quieter than the Moulin Rouge
Will be our call in fairest Bruges.
With French cuisine, we’ll never starve
As we tour and lunch in belle Le Havre.
Then to our last call we’re under way
To say “Cheerio” to the great U.K.!
