These are actually only my first set of daylight images of the Viking Grace, taken on 7 June 2014 while the ship is approaching Mariehamn for her mid-day visit. Taken from onboard the Amorella, also heading towards Mariehamn but sailing on the opposite direction. Click on the images to see them in larger size.

Viking Grace with the (now defunct) Kobba Klintar pilot station in the foreground.
More Grace + Kobba Klintar. Notice the statue of a painter below the Grace's bow.
