I took this picture of the Prinsendam during our Baltic Explorer cruise on July 9, 2011. We were on our tour bus on our way to the Brunsbuttel Port at the west end of the Kiel Canal to get back on the ship. We had disembarked earlier in the morning at the Kiel Port at the east end of the canal and had spent the day doing a bus tour into, and of the environs, of Hamburg, Germany. Very enjoyable tour as usual. Lunch, of either fish or a brautwurst plus sides, was very delicious at a very nice restaurant. Oh how my wife and I both really enjoyed the Baltic Explorer cruise. Cruise of a lifetime. – Jim Hathcoat, HAL Mariner
