And the cruise ships. Among their names - Bergensfjord, President Wilson, Yankee Trader, Lindblad Explorer, Mikhail Lermontov, Society Explorer, Maxim Gorki, Dane, Rotterdam, Royal Viking Sea, Berlin, Royal Viking Sky, Europa (15c stamp), Royal Viking Star (80c stamp), World Discoverer ($1.30 stamp), Sagafjord ($1.80 stamp). Many of these are well-known vessels; beautiful ships offering the best possible service with style.
Eagerly anticipated for weeks before its arrival, the visit of a cruise ship sees all hands busily employed in every spare moment: carving, polishing, weaving and painting.
With passenger and crew sometimes outnumbering the entire local population by ten or more to one, a wonderful opportunity is provided for trading.
