For a short history of the Galaxy, see this entry. The photographs below show the Galaxy arriving at Stockholm's Värtanhamnen on the evening of 28 May 2013, photographed from onboard St. Peter Line's Princess Anastasia. Click on the images to see them in larger size.

I wouldn't mind living in Lidingö - at least not the highbuildings visible here. Imagine the photo opportunities during the morning arrivals! Okay, it might cost a bit.
The photogenic local ferry wreck in the foreground again.
Starting to turn in order to reverse to the terminal...
...which also leads to the ship being positioned rubbishly for the lighting.
Next time: Grand Mistral
