 You can never have too many pictures of the Gabriella. Well maybe you can, but I think there's room in this blog for a handful more. So, the photographs below show the Gabriella departing Helsinki on 11 June 2011, photographed from Suomenlinna passing through the Kustaanmiekka strait. Click on the individual images to see larger size.

It's coming right at us! That can happen at Kustaanmiekka.
Notice how the ship's wake snakes behind her, illustrating how tricky it is to sail through the strait with such a large ship.
She's a pretty ship. And actually one of my favourites in Viking Line's fleet.
Now I'm running out of things to say. :P
The small blips in the horizon are Seabourn Sojourn (the more visible on the right) and the Silver Whisper (just right of the Gabriella's bow).
