For a short history of the Amadea, see the first entry on her. The photographs below show the Amadea at, and departing from, Helsinki South Harbour in the afternoon on 2 July 2013. Photographed from onboard the ferry to Suomenlinna and from Kustaanmiekka. Click on the images to see them in larger size.

At the South Harbour, framed by Helsinki's two cathedrals: the protestant Helsinki Cathedral on the left, and the Greek Orthodox Uspensky Cathedral on the right.
Entering the Kustaanmiekka strait, with a neat rowan in the foreground.
That is a good-looking ship, actually!
Sailing past the King's Gate, part 1.
Sailing past the King's Gate, part 2. And looking very sleek while doing it, too.
And onward to the open sea, showing the somewhat unusual stern design.
Next time: Prinsendam.
