I know the last photographic entry was about the Silja Europa. But here's another one anyway. And hey, these show her without Tallink hull markings, in an appearancethat can no longer be seen live.

For a history of the ship, see this entry.

The photographs below show the Silja Europa arriving in Helsinki West Harbour on the afternoon of 21 May 2013. Photographed from Sisä-Hattu. Click on the images to see in larger size.

The seas were impressively slightly choppy on this day, giving some additional interest to these shots.
Unusually angled windows and sunlight make for impressive shots.
White-tipped waves.
Waves and reflections, now two for the price of one!
Next time: Empress.
