She's not as new or pretty as the "Viking Grace" but we're happy with her. I think it was 241 Euros for a cabin for two, there and back.

We set off for the church following the Google maps directions provided by our smartphone. Not so smart! After several wrong turns it brought us to the church, but had us approach it from the back, which meant we climbed up onto its roof well above the entrance to get into it. After a treacherous climb down the rocks to the sidewalk, we worked our way around to the entrance. Once we were inside, we were forced to agree with ...
