Today, we have our finger on the pulse of events. As you may remember from the last entry, I'm currently on the Crystal Symphony, cruising the Aegean. A more proper reportage from onboard the ship will follow once I have the chance to photograph the interiors more thoroughly (and am not dependant on the fairly slow,though very much appriciated, onboard wifi). But, here are some photos of the Crystal Symphony today at Argostoli, Greece.

Not an unpleasant backdrop for a photo, I say.
Of course, she's another Finnish-built one, so I'm contractually obliged to like her.
Incidentally, she's based on Wärtsilä's all outside ship design that was premiered in 1984 on the then-Royal Princess (sailing today as the Artania)
Also a decent rear on her, if you know what I mean.
Next time we will, hopefully, move to the interiors of the same ship.
