Today we were up early and checked out of our rooms before hanging around and playing some games to pass the time.
At 3 pm we went and met the other 29 fellow passengers that would be joining us on our voyage.
All of our LFTs came back negative, green lighting the whole team to be able to board the ship! Then at 5 pm we finally boarded our home for the next few weeks, the stunning Bark Europa.
As a comparison, the Bark Europa vs. a cruise ship is a small but beautiful vessel. Once on board we were given cosy cabins and a meatball dinner. All be a briefing which included a tour, a safety overview, and an outlook on the forecast (which we are told will not be too rough).
And we are off!
